We booked into the Cresta Maun (Riley's I suppose its called) for a brief day stay after our Air Botswana flight was delayed for 5 hours (the issue seemed to be that there weren't a lot of booked tickets so they sent the prop plane for the day instead of the jet and delayed us but that is another story).
After three nights of bush camping/showering/toileting we were ready for a bit of civilization. Cresta delivered on this with a decent room that in many ways reminded me of what you'd find at a Motel 6 or Super 8 or something.
We got a fair rate for a day stay (350 Pula) and it met all of our needs. Not a place I'd in any way stay for any other reason beyond sleep and a shower, but it got the job done OK.
