We enjoyed the mineral spa that was relaxing after a days walk abouts. Location was also good close to everything while not being to close.
The couch being a bit rough and lack of programs on the telly, also the first 3 stairs from the top of Rm 14 were a bit rocky and may become unsafe for older or bigger travellers like myself. But Overall the stay was enjoyable for moneys worth. Would still recommend.
Nice view from front door
The motel seemed very tired the grounds were unkept, the stairs in poor repair. Indoors the front door didn't lock, net curtains worn - ripped with a very dated interior. The folk in the unit next door were noisy using foul language - not that you can help that but it all added up to us leaving at 8 am unable to give key to reception as the door was locked overall very disappointing and we would not recommend this motel. Owner or manager needs to up their game.
Liked the spa, liked the convenience of location, staff where friendly
Rooms very run down, bedding did not look appealing, a valance around bed bakes wouldn't go a miss, very thin old net curtains and very worn carpet. For the cost (approx $100) per night I would hope for a little better as many a place I have stayed has been much more comfortable and presentable for the same cost. Also a couch would have been nice, booked for three nights and only place to sit was bed or dining table
Parking space are good but a little right in areas
Loved having the hot tub but obviously seen better days. Nice having kitchen area and table , beds were comfortable.
The room needed some TLC. Couch in room was broken one side sunk down when sat on it very uncomfortable. Hot tub area had broken boards around it and tub had tape on where cracks were, looked pretty shitty but was useable and nice. At night we had a lot of sand fly bugs in room no fly spray, wasn’t nice feeling going to sleep.
