Upon request for government rate, receptionist declined although I'm current employee with 24/7 response duties. I advised I've never been denied before to which she stated "guess we're not everywhere else". Dining staff was very courteous and friendly though.

Was on a bus trip seeing lighthouses and we stayed here the last night. They were very friendly. They had cookies chips and beverages for us when we arrived. We a slight problem in our room. We reported it and it was fixed when we returned from super that evening. Would recommend this motel if staying in the area.

We guaranteed a room with a credit card a month prior to our arrival. Gary, GM, gave our room away to somebody else and the hotel was booked upon arrival.

Our family of six stayed here on New Year's Eve and we couldn't have been happier with our room, the hospitality and our overall stay. The pool was delightful and breakfast was great! Our room was spacious which was wonderful with four kids. Look forward to staying again.
