The cost of the room at $95 was good, we were staying in the cheaper rooms across from where you book in. There was plenty of off street parking, the room was neat and tidy and had A/C. In the info for the Motel it states there is the Internet, but none of the rooms on either side has the...

The main positive about this hotel is the price/value. It is decent enough and the price is more than fair, especially considering it includes breakfast. But make sure you adjust your expectations accordingly. The room is adequate but dated. It was reasonably clean, but it could use some upgrading and fixing. For instance, there the nightstand lamp is attached to...

Really lovely place. I stayed in the budget rooms across the road from the main building, which was clearly stated online when I made the booking. The room was lovely and clean and had character. I had a wonderful sleep, the bed was really comfy and the room was peaceful. Also the guy I spoke with both on the phone...

The frig was a little small but was packed with drinks and food for purchase. Plenty of the street car parking. Staff was all lovely and helpful. There is a...

Even worse, it was a known problem. Someone had tried to cover the smell with a chemical air freshener (which added to the problem). As soon as I called down to reception to say the carpet was wet and there was a terrible smell, the receptionist knew what the problem was. The air conditioner was leaking and the fluid had...

We stayed here for work. There was a huge amount of bookings and requests and Kathy handled it like a total pro! The place itself is clean, light and airy and the rooms are a great size. Great service and great little spot!
