Rooms are quiet and warm

Despite being located along a main road, the apartments are quiet and guests couldn’t be more grateful. They take pleasure in the peace and quiet after a long day of sightseeing, and have no issues enjoying a good night’s sleep here. The warm ambience in the apartments is a nice touch, too. That's not all, but the rooms on this property are also clean and spacious.

Convenient location

Negative Reviews

Guests staying at the motor lodge often report a bad experience with regards to the Wi-Fi. According to reviews, it only seems to work in certain areas. In other areas, the signal is sporadic and slow, which can make for a frustrating browsing experience.
