Friendly staff, but the motel needs a renovation it's pretty old.Rooms were fairly comfortable but the pillows were thin.A bit to much noise from traffic. The air conditioner was very noisy, we had to have it off most of the time to hear the TV.

The price is VERY expensive for what you get, far better...

The lady on the front desk was lovely and friendly and our appointed car park was very generous in width. The...
