Shame to have Fox turned off as could not watch the Football which is counter to advertising. Slight oversight and sad sign of current difficult environment

Our stay at the powerhouse motel was most enjoyable. We are looking forward to staying at this motel sometime in the near future. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. There was a bar and reasonably priced good quality dining room on site so we didn’t need to go anywhere else after arriving.
