It really is a nice Motel if you are traveling on a low budget! The rooms are clean and comfortable! The staff is just super friendly and they had just began to build a new apartment complex which seems to be even better!! Highly recommending it!

As a regular visitor, I cannot recommend this motel highly enough. Margaret and the team do an excellent job

It's really good value for money. I cannot wait for the new rooms to become available later this year.

This place is just around the corner of the main town. The place is clean. The studio is self contained with spacious. There is heating too available for a cold chilly winter season. Parking available too. Great host and good service overall. Loved it.

The room was okay but there is only 1 heater for the family room which has 2 rooms and 1 bed at the living area.

The room was clean and the owner was kind to reduce my stay due to last min change. She was also helpful to call some of the attractions as I went during winter and was looking for specific activites.

There was some ongoing constructions beside the motel but noise level was at the minimal.

The location was also great! Walkable distance to the main town area. There is countdown and foursquare if you require groceries.
