4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The motel is very clean and tidy, it is convenient to the city but also to places around, the staff are friendly and helpful. the only minuses could be road noise if the unit is near the street, but it is not intrusive. The showers water supply and control could be improved. I was happy with my stay and have used this motel many times.
