Awesome stay
We planned to stay again in this motel, after our last wonderful experience. The room we got had Queen bed, single bed and sofa. The room was big, spacious, cleaned, comfy beds with nice and clean bathroom (toilet & shower). The other amenities in room were TV, microwave, fridge, electric cooktop and heater. The views from the motel is great (mountains & glacier), close to restaurants, stores and Lake Matheson, parking in front of your room. Overall a good experience staying in the motel with no complaints, humble host and plus cheap deal.

Affordable, clean tidy and quiet BUT IT WASN'T ideal being "confronted" it felt like, with the owner's mother (as she could NOT communicate in English) and instead shoved a cell phone in my face while wondering what she was expecting me to do with it? followed by pointing at a piece of paper with names on it showing our booking, at which time finally a person spoke on the cell phone in English (Turned out to be the son/owner) making reference to me wiht saying "my mum will show you where to go" He sounded pleasant, but wasn't ideal - when not knowing what was expected/ going on but once he explained it became clearer asking if I was checking in..... Please always have someone manning the front counter, who is able to speak English!
