    Location was great, excellent facilities.

    Driveway paving needs attention where the trees have been taken out.

    The rooms go way beyond standard motel rooms. They are more like a furnished apartments. They have plenty of room for up to 4 people. A full kitchen with dish ware and cookware is included. The staff have been super nice. I would move in permanently if weekly rates were offered.

    It is not super fancy but I do not really mind at all. I did not come expecting things like bell hops and valet parking. I think the motel is fine just the way it is.

    We had a confrontation with another guest over car parking. We were advised that there was no designated parking however the other guest had an expectation of using where we parked and decided to block us in! I wonder if a sign indicating no designated car parking might be a good idea to prevent this happening to others :)

    Nice and clean. Friendly staff.

    The cleaner kept turning the heater off which means that the room was cold when we returned to it.
