    WOW. Our hostess was friendly, and helpful. Plenty of WI Fi. Hot mineral pools were brilliant varying in temperature from boil ya wine to Ahhhhhhh bliss. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. AND Only a three minute drive to town

    OK so the motel units are only average but they're clean and spacious, the beds are comfortable and the folk who run the place are friendly and helpful. Its the hot pools that you're here for, and they're great.
