Wi-Fi isn't the best

Visitors say the Wi-Fi at this property could use some improvement. They wish the network were faster and easier to connect to, and say that it often is inaccessible. This can make planning further adventures difficult.

A bit noisy

Travellers describe the units at this motel as a little bit noisy from time to time. They say the soundproofing does not completely isolate each room, and sometimes, it's possible to hear neighbours or traffic.
