Just as the review says, popped in for a drink on the way to the airport. Well laid out and clean premises. Popular drinking spot on the highway with good facilities such as a mega wall of TVs. Unsure of the accomodation but a male dominated place!

From the road the motel does not look startling, but when you drive up to your room all that changes. There is plenty of space to park your car and the grounds are well manicured. The rooms are spacious and the King size was bed very comfortable. We had a room away from the main road and no traffic noise...
