Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The accommodation was clean, fresh and bright. While all very comfortable the huge king(?) sized bed made it impossible to fit two suitcases into the bedroom. One other problem with the motel was its proximity to an overnight truck parking area. This led to disturbed sleep with over seven trucks noisily starting up between 4am - 6am.
