When you walk into this motel, your first impression will be average. Shortly afterwards the impressions move up the scale that make this motel a place that you want to return to. The first thing to notice was upon sitting down on the bed and you find yourself melting into the mattress. The substantial pillows certainly quickly add to the comfort. The washroom is certainly acceptable and again, you soon realize that the towels and facecloths quickly exceed the normal expectations. It took awhile before I realized that the room also included a fake fireplace that added to the ambiance of the room. The next plus for Hubs was the inclusion of a DVD player. While you probably are not in Wells for the hotel/motel experience, the fact that there are only two channels makes the DVD a nice feature. What sets this apart again from the normal is the inclusion in the office, of free DVD borrowing, and not just one or two to choose from, but a well-varied selection of probably close to 500 titles. Saving the best till last, how can you not love Dianne, the manager/owner? When was the last time you met someone in a motel who cared as much about her guests as does Dianne. It was an absolute pleasure to spend 3 nights while there to visit Barkerville.
