Reviewed 15 January 2009

I have spent one night here in Jan 09. I didn't have a booking, but I suspect that if you show up not too late in the low season (and midweek) they'll always have rooms as they are the biggest motel in town.

Rates were very low (U$ 49 for a single), room was clean, with big bathroom, fresh towels, microwave and complimentary coffee. They also advertised in-room internet access, although I didn't get to try.

You may get some traffic noise as it's close to the road, but then, most motels in town are. You're about 15 minutes drive from the park's entrance here.

All in all, very good value, and a no-hassle experience.

  • Liked — Good value, clean.
  • Disliked — Some traffic noise at night.

Stayed here for one night in September 2005. All you need for a comfortable overnight stay. We booked this motel through a ---.com. via the internet as we could not find availability anywhere else at this time. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised as the rooms were clean and well presented equipped with microwave, mini-fridge etc. all for approximately $52.00/night. Good local restaurant/bar just down on opposite side of highway. Good area for climbers. Would recommend anyone take a look!

Don't be put off at the reception/lobby as the owner may take a little while to answer the bell.....
