Room was fine, bed was comfortable. Nice touch having lollies & biscuits. Room needs extra cleaning on ledges, carpet, lamp shades etc. First time I've ever had powdered milk in a motel...yuk! We are surrounded by dairy farms...no excuse for not having fresh milk!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Nice views from top floor room.
The room we booked was taken by another couple and the owner could not explain why as his computer had died. We had a nice night but felt disappointed we paid for bigger room. Off street parking is provided but having a larger car proved a challenge to get back out in the morning. Great shower and bedroom was fresh with comfortable bed.
