    This was a charming little motel. The staff is friendly and the garden in the back is beautiful. The flowers planted every where gave the place a very cheery feel. We were in room #3 for two nights. The shared bathroom and shower were right...More

    Do the two rooms upstairs share a bathroom only with each other? I'd like to book both those rooms for our family of 5, and I'm OK sharing a bathroom with my family members, but not with the other motel guests. I can't find any information on the website and no one is answering the phones.

    this is a very rural quaint town and you will be okay. family of five, well. you will all have to share. this is the cutest place to stay in town and i say do it. just be mindful that you all have to share the bathroom.

    I am interested in a room for four people, or 2 twin/double rooms. Facing the garden if possible and ensuite for Monday 12 October. What do you have available and what is the price. We are 4 women travelling together. Thank you. Caroline

    I think this question is meant for the motel staff...not the Trip Advisor members. I reserved this motel online: google 'El Mono motel".

    Hi, I know swimming is okay, but how many people actually do take to the water to feel the floating power. :) And, would my kiddos need water shoes for the entry? Thanks!

    Bennett's wife here. The lake has a LOT of flies on it & fly larvae in it. Perhaps people go in...I haven't seen it, though. Only kayaks, etc.
