The owners have tried very hard to make something out of a tired outdated building. The outside appearance is certainly not welcoming and the sorroundings drab & neglected. The room on the other hand had been renovated and was well fitted out, clean & comfortable. Forget the restaurant, they have a very extensive menu, but that is all. The tablecloths...

The buildings looked old but reasonable (at first glance), the carpet was dirty, quite a lot of spider webs, especially in the bathroom, soap scum on the glass, but the sheets and towels were ok. A cloud of dust came out of the air con when we put it on. The free internet connection signal was good. I did expect...

Clean, large and adequate. The bed was comfortable, wifi good, price reasonable but the noise of the trains thundering through during the night was terrible. The cars swishing by were tolerable but the train noise woke us. Maybe rooms at the back of the motel would be quieter. Would we stay again... Not really sure.

This was not chosen because it was the only place available - it was OK but we wouldn't rate it as more than average. It was cheap, and the room functional. It wasnt spotless, and the whole establishment seemed a bit uncared for. It is on the main highway, and so traffic noise might be an issue for some people....

This motel is run by a delightful Vietnamese family. The motel itself is quite old but everything is super clean and the staff are so nice to deal with that it makes for a very enjoyable stay. The Wifi is excellent- very fast and reliable. The prices are excellent and we would definitely stay here again if we were coming...

What a surprise this was. It was a very nice room. Clean, comfortable, affordable and had everything we needed for a nights stopover. Friendly host, free wifi, electric blankets, comfortable bed and all the standard amenities. Even Chinese delivered to our door.Would stay here again for sure. Very impressed :)

Well, the price was good, the service was wonderful however the motel needs a good upgrade. Very old inside but clean. Affordable was the key. Reasonably central to the main street. Good parking. Great restaurant attached to the motel..

After reading previous reviews - I was a bit concerned as my employer had booked me to stay here. I am still here and am pleasantly surprised - this is a very nice hotel. Had a rear block room, there are rooms at the rear that are the same size etc. Bathroom and separate basin brand new. Very good size...
