Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
For an aging motel, and to be refurb in 2017, we were really happy with the facilities and the closeness to the Softball grounds and other amenities including shops and Fastfood outlets. The Bed was a little on the hard side, but it was somewhere nice, clean and secure which was refreshing.
