“time warp to the 70's”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Stayed here overnight before an early morning flight. The rooms were so basic for the price. Literally everything in the room was old and smelt musky. I was at first hesitant to lay on the beds from the smell in the room. The heater also was really really loud so couldnt sleep with it on. there was a smaller cheap bar heater that didnt really do much for the size of the room. Wouldnt choose to stay here again.

We stayed just one night, like most people. Our plane arrived in around midnight, but we had a friendly, timely pick-up and check-in. Next morning our rental car company picked us up from the hotel. Easy peasy, nice rooms, warm, clean, quiet, and amenities for making tea. All you need really!

The rooms are quite basic, but like most guests - we weren't staying long term. We just needed somewhere to sleep before heading off first thing on a drive trip, so proximity to airport and free late night pickup ticked the boxes.

Our plane was delayed and didn't land until roughly 1:30am. I seemed to be the only person who managed to find the payphone and inform them of our arrival (the tollfree number is a very thoughtful touch for overseas visitors not likely to have change immediately after stepping off a plane). The owner arrived with a minivan expecting 4 people and saw around 20 people. He took this in his stride, and I'm amazed at how cheerful he can be at 2am and again in the morning when we checked out.

we stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. the good thing was it was warm and quiet. expensive for the standard of room. tv didn't work on the 1st night - they replaced it the next day. 2 light bulbs didn't work - one in the bathroom which was inconvenient and my daughter had to climb on a chair to replace it. the heater in the bathroom had some of the plastic melted. one of the bedspreads was torn. all of these things are small on their own but together made us cross and definitely will not stay again

I was staying in this motel for catching up the early flight. 10 minutes to airport. Great! Room is dated but very clean. Quiet and comfortable surrounding. Friendly and helpful staff. Just so lucky I accidently found it on the block.
