Friendly service

Many guests expressed positive opinions about the customer service, often calling employees attentive, helpful and friendly.

Modernized rooms at affordable rates

This no frills motel's modern rooms were appealing to many guests who said they were more than suitably clean, spacious and comfortable for a short stay. Sometimes reviewers said their rooms were spotlessly clean. The swimming pool was a bonus, but some reviewers criticized the shower cubicles for being cramped. Rates were reportedly often affordable and there were freebies like the pet-friendly policy and parking, which prompted many guests to say it was fair value for money.

Handy location for beaches and attractions

Negative Reviews

Some maintenance and cleanliness grumbles

Slow-draining water and weak water pressure were encountered by some reviewers. There were reports of other maintenance issues such as malfunctioning air-conditioning in some rooms. Although many guests were upbeat about the cleanliness standards, there was occasional criticism of stained linens and floors that weren't always well-cleaned in certain rooms.

Too noisy for some guests

Thin walls were blamed for making noise from neighboring rooms and corridors audible at times. Light sleepers also said some rooms were exposed to occasional traffic noise from the nearby highway.

Unpopular Wi-Fi charges

Travelers simply disliked the additional charges for access to the Wi-Fi network. Some of those who took the plunge and paid for access claimed the service was beset by underwhelming speeds and patchy coverage.
