We went for a conference in the Capri Center which we registered late, so they were full. We were looking for very affordable and close to the Capri and it seemed to fit the bill plus others we knew were staying there. The motel is about a 5 minute drive away from the Capri so it was quite handy.
We had a room on the main floor, close to the breakfast room and the pool. The room was quite spacious and had an attractive fireplace and a fridge..no microwave. No glass cups in room, only plastic so it is very basic in that. A continental breakfast is supplied. It was nothing fancy. I have had better other places. It consisted of 2-3 kinds of cereal, toast or muffin. I think there was danish but no fruit or anything protein. It kept the hunger at bay though until we could find a lunch place. It is located on the freeway so getting out seemed a bit complicated getting north into town because of boulevard but we found a back way which made us happy instead of doing the main highway.
I had to try the fireplace although it heated the room up quickly. It would be nice in winter It was a nice touch..made you feel quite homey. Staff was courteous and we enjoyed the pool . It was quite cool temperture wise I thought and I felt a bit disappointed as I thought it was closed too early. There was Costco and Scotts Parable Christian Store (we enjoyed shopping in there) and numerous restarants are extremely handy to the hotel. We bought some groceries at Sobeys and utilized our fridge. We ate two meals out.
It was a good basic motel. I will stay there again
