I was with my kids 11 and 8 yo, we just needed to stay one night while waiting for our flight back to Australia the next day. I have just driven 6 hours from the west coast, tired and a little broke... So I was kind of hoping for a little miracle of finding a very nice and decent place for my kids, without breaking my tight budget. We checked one motel and the price was much dearer than I was willing to pay. We kept looking and the name Fyffe caught my little girl's attention, It looked nice and so we went and asked, the manager was very accommodating, he gave me an expensive price as well, but I felt comfortable talking to him... So i just mentioned that it's too dear and we only need it for one night as we are in transit. So he showed me a room with a Super King bed, and he said if the three of us are ok to fit in it, we can have the room and it's much cheaper... Well my kids and i are all skinny, so we were happy to take it.
The room is pretty, very clean, modern, surprisingly spacious, and the beddings color scheme and room decor are modern and pleasant to the eyes. We felt rested and relaxed on the last night of our adventurous trip.
