Sorry, just picked up your query which isn't very helpful to you, is it. Also, apologies, as I can't answer the question! We did find the management at the motel very helpful. We did find our unit comfortable but we were just a couple. Have a good trip.

Thank you for your query. If you are looking for a two bedroom the rate is for 4 people, then $15.00 for an extra person. If you are looking for a one bedroom the rate is for 2 people and then $15.00 for an extra person. I hope this is of some help. Kind regards Karen.
