Booked this hotel after reading reviews on Tripadvisor - and we were very impressed.
Tucked away off the main road, this the found this small motel to be a great place to stay. It is located near most of the other motels, a 2 minute drive (or 5 - 10 minute walk) to the main strip of restaurants.
The rooms are pleasant and clean - with a nice bathroom area. The furniture wasn't flash, but very comfortable. The rooms were nice and warm, and there was a small kitchen area.
The hosts were fantastic. We are used to staying in large smart hotels and wouldnt normally interact too much with the owners of a hotel, but at Sails they were exceptionally helpful, and seemed genuinely friendly and interested that we have a good stay. They helped book tours and made some good restaurant recommendations.
We would certainly return.
