At first sight it ain't pretty, but that's were the negatives end. Jim and his wife are very friendly and informative about the local area. The motel at first glance isn't visually appealing however the rooms have all been renovated and are all modern. Close to town and on a quiet street so no highway noise. Stayed here for a... More

This place would be fine if the bed was able to be slept in. The pillows are like rocks and the blankets reek of mens aftershave. I folded up my jacket for my young daughter to use as a pillow. Whilst I lay awake all night feeling dirty and with a huge headache. I would have been better off driving... More

So the room was ok. Bed was comfy. Bathroom small but clean. I would have recommended it for somewhere cheap to stay that is not too bad. But upon leaving we had to wait for the lady to inspect the room. That's fine as they obviously want to check we haven't trashed the room. However she starts grilling us whether... More

We had stayed in the Hotel Avalon a long time ago so we thought we'd try it this time. When we walked up the drive way it didn't impress, but when we met the owner and saw the room, wow, what a great little motel at a good price. They are obviously doing the place up and there is more... More

When we pulled up to this motel, all we could think of is bates motel. But that fear soon passed. We were early, but the lovely and friendly staff had everything ready. They told us of local events that weekend, where we should go and what we should do. So helpful. We paid for a standard room, so we weren't... More

So yes, it's an old motel in need of TLC on the outside (even the driveway could do with some patch ups), but the motel is situated in a quiet street away from the main roads.The room/ensuite were spacious, clean (partially renovated), all appliances working well and the couple running the place were very helpful in many ways.
