Really easy check in. Eric was super friendly and helpful. Our unit was really comfortable and super clean. It was also really quiet. Great location. Right in town. A couple of convenience stores were close, so nice and easy to pick up goodies.

Really good value for money. Excellent location, walk across the road to Baycorp Theatre, down street and along to several restaurants. Didnt get to taste your freshly caught fish unfortunately. Perfect for our 2 night visit. Great hostess, thanks.

This motel has Benn of a consistently high standard for years. It is so central to all the city restaurants and to the Baycourt complex. The rooms are well appointed and the staff are very pleasant both on the phone and in person.
