Positive Reviews

Friendly and approachable owner

Guests have lots of good things to say about the owner of this motel, who is described as very engaged and friendly. The reviews indicate that the service she provides is second to none.

Remarkably comfortable beds

One loses track of all the positive comments guests make with respect to the beds at this motel. They are found to be supremely comfortable, with the absence of any negative remarks providing evidence that the mattresses have very broad appeal too.

Clean and spacious rooms

Weary travellers are clearly very happy to find, on check-in, that their rooms have been properly cleaned by a dedicated housekeeping staff. In addition to this, guests find the rooms to be a good size, which allows them to stretch out a little.

Negative Reviews

Area can be noisy

Disappointed guests note that there are two regular sources of noise at this motel. It is said to not only be on a busy road, but also well within earshot of a train line. Noise from both of these is said to be easily heard in the rooms that face that direction.

Difficult access

Motorists, especially those with a tendency to be a little nervous, report that the road immediately outside the motel is a busy one, and that entering and leaving the premises can be a nerve-racking experience when traffic is especially heavy.
