My wife booked this motel online and i must say I am blown away. It doesn't look flash from the outside but one the door is opened you are confronted by a classy, clean and modern interior with all you will need.

The room was quite big with 2 queen beds and a kitchette. Continental breakfast was only $9.50 per person ( which was delivered the night before). The location was great...Right across the road from the water as well as only 5minutes walk from the casino.

We stayed in a deluxe self contained room on the first floor with car parking directly underneath the building which made for easy access to our room either by the stairs or the lift with a view to the river! The room had everything we needed for a short stay and it was very handy to have a mini kitchen...

The location is fine. Room is clean And the reception is nice. The only problem is that the location is near the road, and car park just below the rooms. If you are looking for budgeted hotel, this is a good choice.
