We stopped for one night on our way down the coast. The location was perfect - very close to town and backing onto the river. Our room was small but clean and comfortable. The bathroom quite luxurious given the size of the room. Balcony rooms face the water at the rear of the property - however, as beautiful as the... More

Motel easy to locate and central. Most services in easy walking distance. Facilities good, room looked and smelt clean. We had a ground level, waterside view, though a level above would have had a clearer outlook. (It did, however, comply with our request for few steps and ground level.) Office staff helpful and all staff encountered were cheerful and helpful.... More

The room was ok. The bed was confortable. The room was quiet. The bathroom was lacking in cleanliness, hairs were on the walls. The breaksfast was minimal, not worth 10$. I do hate those old rugs...but it was not smelly.

Great location overlooking the water. Room had recently been refurbished and was roomy. Wifi was free and easy to log on with plenty of signal. Undercover parking virtually below our room. Was convenient to shops and the Soldiers Club was across the road. Will stay here in the future.
