This was quite a nice motel. Spacious and a spa bath. My only issue was the terrible Wifi. They said it was because it was busy, yet even in the middle of the night I struggled to use it. In the morning after most people had checked out it was still bad, but I could at least now check my emails. This was my only complaint for an otherwise good motel.

Our stay at the Bell Tower Inn was great. Check in was fast, easy and friendly. We were only there a short time but the boys got to enjoy the pool and our room was quiet, spacious and clean. The only negative would be the chlorine in the air at the pool, it meant we could only be in there a short time. Other wise, it was a great stay for our family.

Hi Mikalie, We are so glad you and your boys had such an enjoyable stay. We always love when people give positive feedback about our staff. Guests are often impressed with the spaciousness of the rooms and we are so glad it was quiet enough for you. Our house keeping staff are very hard working and it is wonderful to hear that you found your room clean. Unfortunately, we have to set the chlorine to a certain level for hygiene reasons and because the pool is indoors it can cause a chlorine smell in the air. The most important thing is that it was a great stay for your family. Making our guests happy is our number one goal. We do hope you choose to stay with us again in the future. Kind regards,

One get away I won’t forget The staff were lovely however there were a few issues with our room. Will not be somewhere I would stay again. It’s important to feel that you are being heard and acknowledged, unfortunately I felt that I paid too much for what we got.

Hi Maria, Thank you so much for acknowledging the staff. We do try very hard to make people feel welcome and heard. I'm sorry to hear you won't be coming back. We did try to respond to your needs and it is unfortunate that the solutions we offered were not to your satisfaction. Our apologies again,

Some of the furniture was a bit old and heavy but overall it was fine.
