We stayed here for New Year's Eve and we pleasantly surprised by the location and proximity to town amenities.
Close to everything and in the heart of the town, however not a lot of parking when things get busy.
The room was clean, not spotless but ok, and looked like they had had a renovation in the last couple of years making it look more modern and user friendly.
No air conditioning in our room, however that's not to say all rooms were the same, and I cannot comment on the other rooms. In the middle of summer it is cooking so make sure you ask when you book.
While you are checking on the AC make sure you ask for a room away from the road as it's does get noisy at night and the loud cars make sleep a bit tough.
TV reception is very patchy with our tv just refusing to work.
Other than these points it seems like a budget priced well optioned motel close to everything.
