Return visit to the motel. Again, welcomed by friendly staff (owner?). Room very well presented and very clean and comfortable. On this occasion, my room was situated very close to SH1 and although large trucks were travelling a few metres away, I was not woken during the night

"This motel was quiet."
"The rooms in the front row (overlooking the office & pool) would have better mountain views (snowy mountains in winter)."
"Rooms set back from the main road will be quieter"
"Rooms 1-3 and 8-10 back onto the main road but there was no problem with traffic noise."
"we stayed at room 15, 2nd floor. It is a two rooms suite, can fit a family with 2 kids."
US$116 - US$207 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
