Based on our experiences compared with older reviews below it would seem that this motel is a shadow of its former self, if not already in its death throes. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon to an indifferent reception. We were not allowed to borrow a key to check out a room and the woman at reception said she was unable to leave her post, so that meant booking and paying for a room sight unseen. Then we were told that if we wanted anything we'd better think about it quickly as she was finishing at 6 pm that night and there would be nobody onsite until Monday morning - God knows how you can successfully operate a motel with a "closed sign" on the door from 6 pm Saturday evening until Monday morning. Needless to say breakfast the following morning was not an option.
The rather large motel and its surrounds looked a bit dilapidated and uncared for, but the room was reasonably comfortable and what you would expect from a motel in a small country town. It was certainly quiet as there were hardly any other guests staying there! It was also a bit away from any places to eat, so if you wanted to go anywhere and have a drink that meant a rather long walk there and back.
