5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Beautiful, spacious room. Very comfortable bed. Great kitchen facilities. Quiet. The only negative was the shower - its not enclosed so water gets all over the tile floor which is slippery and potentially dangerous. Would definitely recommend this motel
