This was a well situated, clean and quiet motel. Though on a main road, it is well set back from the road so is very, very quiet. The units are spacious and modern, the staff are friendly and you still get a daily newspaper, delivered to your door! Ample parking and close to

From the moment we arrived to a warm and friendly greeting to the comfy beds we were delighted with our stay here. We had a 2 bedroom suite and while the decor is dated the rooms are incredibly clean and tidy. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. Extra blankets and

Frayed linen, flat pillow and lumpy bed...spacious room, good air conditioning and free wifi. This motel is hedging its bets. For the money I think it is a bit cheeky. Friendly staff and the pool looks inviting.

Hi Catalina Crew. Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay and hope it was nothing to do with the Catalina crew cancelling through the agent at very short notice. We have only been here for a short time and have started an upgrade of the rooms as very little had been done prior to our arrival which we have had fantastic comments about. There were other pillows in the wardrobe as some guests like flat pillows and some higher, the beds are very comfortable according to other guest reviews??. With cost you booked through an agent which adds a charge over and above ours which you have to pay for and was your choice but glad you enjoyed the spacious rooms, A/C and the Free WiFi (recently upgraded) and the pool is enjoyed by all (getting painted end of the month).
