Found this motel to be very clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. It was close to the airport and up the road is the Bush Inn shopping Mall and supermarkets. They had a deal with a taxi company so got this ride to the airport cheaper. Plus they stored my car there for the week. Will definitely stay there...

The motel is easy to find, clean, and accessible to the airport and most of town without too much trouble. Large bathroom in our unit, along with basic kitchenette facilities. The staff was cordial, but not overly friendly. Parking was empty when we arrived (5:30PM) but was full by the time we returned from dinner (7:30P). A perfectly reasonable place...
