Positive Reviews

An outstanding location

Guests couldn’t rave more about the location of the motel. They are pretty close to the Skyline terminal so they can enjoy scenic gondola rides. Sky Tower sits right next to the property, too; guests can take a memorable trip up to it. For golf lovers, there’s a mini golf course right there as well.

Charming owners and staff

It’s not uncommon for both the owners and staff to greet guests with a warm smile, reviewers mention. Nothing is too apparently too much trouble for this dedicated crew as they are quick to attend to guests’ needs, including special requests.

Spacious rooms with comfy beds

The rooms are reportedly spacious and guests like that they can spread out and relax. Indeed, they have ample space to store their luggage. Guests also enjoy taking a nap on the cosy beds with great bedding.

Negative Reviews

Heating issues

Unfortunately, the in-room heating is set on a timer. This goes off on an hourly basis, and guests are nonplussed that they have to get up in order to reset it. That's not all, but the timer is also somewhat noisy. This is more than frustrating as it interferes with a good night’s sleep for guests.

Wi-Fi issues

While some guests enjoy a good Wi-Fi signal, a sizeable number of guests do not. The signal keeps cutting in and out, which makes for a poor browsing experience. Judging by guest reviews, it looks like this is an area the motel could work on.
