Right from when i walked in i felt uncomfortable with the host. We didnt want to stay but it was nonrefundable. The motel was beautifully clean and modern but i felt the host was very rude. She asked me if i was vaccinated and when i said no she told me i was naughty for not being vaccinated. I had to bite my tongue and ignore her comment. In our room there was a queen size bed and a single size bed. When the lady took me up to our room she said "dont use that bed" and pointed to the single bed. We didnt use the bed but as far as im concerned we paid for the room we can use the bed if we want. The main reason i also chose this motel was because you were provided breakfast. When we went to have it, there was two choices of cereal and then a container with bread and croissants in it. We were going to have toast but there were only jams and marmalades. No peanut butter or marmite. Very disappointed in our stay. We will not be going back and we will definitely not be recommending to others to stay there.

Clean and comfortable with a complimentary Continental breakfast. This property would be ideal for a family as there is a spa and swimming pool available for guest use.
