    We arrived outside normal operating hours. We had failed to receive an email the proprietor had kindly sent twice via Expedia explaining that the room would be unlocked. The proprietor kindly showed us the room anyway which we really appreciated. The spa bath was also really appreciated after a tough day’s work and the outside pool is a high-quality one. We had an excellent sleep and I think overall this is a very good motel with great proprietors.

    • Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort

    We booked a king bed and got a queen instead. We asked to be away from the road and were told they only had one room left by the main hwy that was noisy with traffic all day and night. This was not a last minute booking, so they should have accommodated our room choice as that was what we had booked.
