Not a motel as we know it because it is surprisingly contemporary. Beautiful bedrooms with high quality furniture. Good breakfasts available too. Also it's in a good location quite near town centre. Best motel ever.

Dogs allowed?

"The room by the pool gate is the best. Cannot remember the room number."
"All the rooms are set around a common courtyard well back from the highway. Noise level was not an issue."
