We’ve stayed at the VIP quite a few times but this was our first summer stay. Six of us travelling on 4 motorcycles were extremely happy to arrive after a super hot day on the road. We were pleased to have working air-conditioners. Beds & pillows are comfy. Lots of towels and supplies for bathroom & coffee maker. Also a coin operated washer/dryer as well as large ice maker. Friendly & helpful staff. We’ll definitely be back !!!

For an older motel, this is a real gem! Super clean, comfy beds, and the owners Paul and Gemma, are the kindest, most accommodating, and are very hard working ! And I love that pets are welcome💕 Thank you for making our stay comfortable👍

This Motel is a little older, you can definitely tell by the decor and the poor lighting but it was very clean! The staff was friendly and the room set up was fantastic. At only $99.00 for the night our room had three queen beds and a well stocked kitchenette it was perfect! They include a continental breakfast with toast and muffins as well, if you are not happy with that McDonald is right down the road.

The hotel has a policy requiring cancellation 2 days in advance. As such we faced a road closure impossible to get there from here and now are having to pay anyway. Avoid this rip of operation like the plague

Stayed here for two nights, the room is very basic but clean. The bathroom was clean but a little dated. Lots of towels! The beds and pillows were a little hard but you’re not paying big dollars for the room either. Good place so a short stay.
