    If cheap is what you want then this is certainly the place to be. But if nice is what you want then you will need to pay at least 20% more somewhere else. On the main road so it would be quite noisy at timesMore

    We stayed one night here and it was clean, quiet and friendly staff were helpful. A good place to break up our trip and we had a sound night's rest. Room had toaster and all the necessaries. Recommended.

    This motel is located on a main road, but set back from it. Night time road noise is minimal. Clean accommodation. Comfy bed and a good night's rest. Friendly staff. Conveniently located for a road trip. Excellent value for money!
