The rooms are very clean, the people who run the motel are fantastic and the showers are excellent. The only complaints I have is there wasn't a microwave in the room and only one normal type chair.

Convenient location for this trip, I would stay again, bed was comfortable, TV good size for room, tea and coffee with biscuits and fresh milk....staff genuine and helpful. Price was good, and yes motel has age and worn, but prefer to stay here and not endure timely check in at resort style places for double the price.
