We spent three days in this motel and enjoyed our home away from home. The owners are very pleasant and willing to help with anything. The pool and courtyard are meticulous and though the rooms are a bit dated, are comfortable and roomy. Free wifi included.

Stayed here for a couple of nights as the Mr had a couple of business engagements. Lovely room, clean and spacious. We ordered breakfast which was delivered to our door - hot and yummy. Would definitely recommend

Never stayed at the Valdez before so this was a 1st. On arrival the manager was very welcoming and helpful. I booked a double room that a had a spare single bed. The room was large and spacious. We had free wi-fi, a bonus! The rooms were extremely clean and had everything you needed. We only slept in the room...

We've stayed at the Valdez many times over many years. It is always reliably clean and comfortable to stay at. As the units are set back from the road it is also very quiet. I hope one day they will let people with small dogs stay, as we now go elsewhere as our dog nearly always travels with us.

This place is highly recommended. The motel is clean, spacious and comfortable. The motel is 3 minutes drive from the town centre. The staff is friendly. The room has a stove top and a spa, but the price is affordable.

This motor lodge is the cleanest we have ever stayed in. We were made very welcome, just walked in without previously booking. The room was large, and very warm with a heat pump. Comfortable bed. Only negative was the shower is over a bath, and a bit of a struggle when you are older. Really quiet.

I travel for business and have stayed a number of times at this motel. The rooms are quiet as the complex is set back from the main road. Plenty of room in the studio units. Hosts are helpful and pleasent to deal with. Continental breakfast is reasonable.

Clean, tidy establishment, with friendly staff. I'm a business traveller, and all I'm looking for when I stay somewhere is essentially a place to rest. I'm always after a place that is clean, tidy, and quiet so I can get that rest, and the Valdez ticked those boxes. Not a place personally I'd stay if I were on holiday, but...

Whilst the motel is comfortable, spacious & clean we did find it lacking in a few areas. The garbage bin near our room was stinking, we did move it but it was moved back next morning. Bathroom is a bit dated. We did feel it was overpriced considering the location. WiFi was hit & miss. As a suggestion, could you...

As we checked in, we were given a fresh carton of milk and were shown the way to our rooms. All the rooms are at ground level with plenty of parking outside. Our room was clean and tidy and very big with a private patio. The room cleaning service was excellent and we will definitely stay here again.
