Just walked in. Room was clean but mould in the bathroom. Bleach works wonders. Staff were friendly, breakfast was included and was OK. Overall nothing really to complain about except the brand of coffee in the restaurant was the worst I ever had. Please look at changing that.

"Rooms at the back of the motel are quieter."
"I found the ground floor room was perfect for my needs"
"There are some rooms on a first level. If you have mobility issues, then ask."
"Parking ok though not always in front of your downstairs unit due to rooms upstairs needing a space"
"If wanting smoke-free perhaps ask for a room far away from the majority of the complex."
