The motel was quite comfortable and well equipped. Whilst it was well priced, it was a bit too far from the beaches, restaurants etc. There was a shopping centre just a short walk away. One night the smoke detector started beeping just above our heads at 3am, requiring a somewhat difficult challenge to disable it so we could try to get a bit more sleep. With regular checks and battery changes, this would and should be avoided.

We loved the bed, king size, mattress was very comfortable, and we had a good night's sleep. Breakfast was delicious, reasonably priced, plenty of it, and on time. A large room, plenty of parking, service was excellent. We enjoyed our stay, price reasonable, and we will definitely stay there again.
