I wasn't expecting much from this motel, until I walked inside. The decor is modern and fresh with plenty of space to relax. The bed was very comfortable, although the electric heating pad did not heat up the whole bed. The rest of the room was heated by a small space heater, which seemed to struggle to really heat up the large room. There is a small kitchen area by the door, which is nice and convenient for self-catering. The bathroom was a little small, but very clean. The heated towel bar was a nice touch! If for some reason you are not outdoors in this area, the room had a huge flat screen TV on the wall. Sitting back from the main street, road noise is very minimal. Overall, a really nice option in Franz Josef.
Pros: nice, modern interior
Cons: a little chilly on cold nights
