I like that there is a cleaning service daily-even though we were there for 3 nights. Lots of motels don't do this, so it was lovely.

Motel that allows anyone and anything goes. Weak manager who hides inside when loud obnoxious people run loose all hours of the night and does not control his motel while the other gear suffer. Do not bother to stop there.

We are puzzled and disappointed to read your review. As managers we do take the comfort of our guests seriously and not one guest has notified us over the holiday period of any disturbance. If we had of been we certainly would have acted immediately to rectify the situation. Regards, Peter & Eleanor
