“Comfortable motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

The room were very comfortable and the staff nice. Indoor pool was good for the kids, but a little gloomy. Very nice breakfast with waffles but the room is definitely too small. The motel is not in the centre, but we did not mind because we came for the Aquarium and had the car anyway.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We booked this place for the simple reason it was within walking distance to the fairgrounds. The grounds were well kept and the rooms looked like they had been recently refurbished (new paint, fixtures, bedding.) The breakfast was good, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereals, make yourself waffles, muffins, coffee and juices. There are a couple great places to eat nearby, again within walking distance as well as a CVS for in-room drinks and snacks. It's a little pricey, but for us it met our needs. I think people look for things to nit-pick about. If you are looking to find things wrong, you will. Overall a nice place to stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights, a family of six, and were very pleased with our room, the breakfast was very good indeed, our teenage sons especially enjoyed the waffle maker. It was great having a swimming pool, which was never crowded. Would definitely stay here again.

Was Ok a Motel like you find thousand along the street. Rooms and bathroom where newly and fully functional. Thin walls to neighbor room so easy to hear noise. Too small breakfast room for a fully booked Motel. Poor choice of food and lousy orange juice.

This hotel was the worst overnight experience I have ever had. The shower overflowed due to bad design, the room was overpriced, the microwave had cigarette burns and wouldn't shut off, the service was horrendous and the guy was on his phone in the back every time I went in, the food was stale and was not restocked along with sour milk!!!!! Te worst part by far, was the adult dance club next door that I could hear and feel vibrating my walls until 230 am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was exhausting, by the time I was leaving, I was too tired to even ask for my money back. This place is a nightmare!
