    Very nice and warm room, clean bathroom and nice hot shower. All the shower accessories are provided (soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair dryer). Comfortable bed with an electric blanket. The place is cozy and quiet

    Lovely big unit, very welcoming, obliging staff. We arrived late in the day and this was no problem. I left a library book at the motel and they returned it within a very short time at no charge. Much appreciated!

    It's one of the warmest place we've stayed during our trip. We're grateful for the fact that it has a bathroom fan heater as it warms up the whole bathroom in a jiffy. The whole place is vast and the kitchen is really well equipped!...More
