EV Charge
We were visiting for a family funeral, so things were a little tense. The Motel is in a great location and is very comfortable. I really appreciated the hospitality of our hosts Brenda and Farnie. We were also told we could charge our EV over night, which was a real bonus. We will definitely be returning next time.
