The room had everything we needed and was bigger than many other motel rooms. It also had a nice garden outside and a resturant with great homemade food. The dinner was great! Also, the motel-owners were very sweet and kind to us.

We decided to stay here for a few nights over christmas as it was close to where we needed to be. The building itself is quite old as is stated in it's reviews, but contained everything we needed. The room although basic, was clean and comfortable. Our room had nice cool air conditioning and the bed was very comfortable. The...

The layout of the room was odd and awkward. A small bedroom area with a small table and two chairs tucked in on one side of the bed. A door led to a sort of utilities room which serves the tea/coffee making area, fridge, cupboard for hanging clothes and extra pillows etc... and the sink to wash hands after going...

Very convenient and central to where we needed to be (win entertainment Centre). Bed was very small and place seemed old. Check in was simple and quick. Noise from highway was fine also considering it is so close. Overall was fine for a two night stay :)

Reception was very slow when I checked in, took at least 10 minutes (booked and paid online so it should've taken less than a minute). The room was cosy, had tea and coffee making facilities and a nice shower. Beds were...
