Great little find! We love our Best Western accommodation and were delighted to find Kennedy Drive Motel. Apart from always comfy "king koil" beds, our room was self contained which was an added (cost saving) bonus. Also friendly and thoughtful staff was most appreciated.

Great wifi and the staff...
