          Friendly staff, clean rooms, spacious layout. Fully self contained and located adjacent to the local tavern which served great food. Located close to service station and other shops. Beds were comfortable and the heating and electric blankets were awesome

          The motel is very clean and tidy with everything one needs for a few nights stay. The Studio units are small but certainly adequate. The owners are really nice, accommodating and unobtrusive. I have stayed several times recently
