An ordinary country motel, right on the main road so a bit noisy with trucks during the night. A bit out of town. Very obliging and helpful manager.

Parking is a pain when fully booked out. Shower heads are too low. But over all was nicer and cheaper than most places

Comfortable for overnight stay, and conveniently located. TV reception on a Friday night rather patchy, and very noisy bathroom fan

Nice hotel in pleasant setting close to town centre. Had difficulty sleeping because no way of shutting out the light shining through bathroom window. But otherwise very comfortable.
