Good friendly check in and check out. Stayed in single queen room. Good sized parking bays. Room was a good size comfortable and clean. Bathroom a little small and shower curtain allowed some water onto floor. Motel was quiet. Service staff very good with added touch of cleaning car window daily. Overall a pleasant stay and would stay again.

Amazing motel run by friendly owner who truly cares about customer excellence - every aspect of the visit was friendly and I couldn't have asked for more and if I did they would have arranged it! Great dinner as well - awesome mixed grill and wines.
