In many ways an excellent choice. In the centre of town, with well equipped decent sized bright and cheerful airy modern rooms. The washing machine was free though not the dryer and there was a washing line. However the only ironing board was in the laundry. We got fresh milk each day. There was an Unheated swimming pool and a hot tub. Overall I thought it a fair motel if a little pricey. However what annoyed both of us was the rather plethora of petty rules eg not sleeping between the blanket and the eiderdown or you will be charged, and the 'you will be charged if you do not wash up' amongst others. I mean we are paying $145 for the room, not a small amount. Don't the owners have a dishwasher? The rules reminded me of bed and breakfasts in 1950s UK something long gone thankfully. If you can cope with the rules then this is a good place to stay
