Just don't even think about staying here? One of the worst experience ever. Room service and rooms are very poor!

Originally picked this property for the room with kitchenette. There was NO kitchenette !! Manager did give a small discount after we complained. Rooms were clean, soft towels, and hot water. Swing set was nice for my grandson's.

Disappointing bed.
It has some good point’s including location and parking. The main problem was the bed. One of the queen beds in my room was a basic affair with a foam mattress topper which meant it provided no support at all. Half way through the night i tested the other bed which had a proper mattress. Also there was a lot of noise from the television in the next door room. Otherwise a decent basic motel.

AT first glance room seemed ok. But as we were there discovered outlets taped up, He did not honor the price what expedia had me reserved for so i paid an extra 64 bucks. King size bed was soft and caved in the middle. Spiders in one answered bell when i tried to get more TP and clean towels.and doubled up on taxes on bill. Diffently would not stay here again. Vending machines empty and no ice. We had 2 lamps next to bed and both outlets taped off. Wires showing on heater,thank god we didnt need heat.

Avoid this place.
Worst place ever stayed in. Curtains didn’t fit, chair coming apart when you sit on it. Table coming apart, one leg stuck together with expanding foam, other leg stuck down with sellotape. Towel rail broke and missing. Old burnt out air conditioning unit still in room with the stains above on ceiling. Electrical sockets unsafe. Light over hand basin nearly on the ceiling, had to use a coat hanger to reach it, same goes for using the air con. Couldn’t speak to manager on the morning or departure as he wouldn’t come to reception when we called the bell, even though the times for reception clearly stated it would be open. The only positive comment I can make is that the young lady who cleans the rooms was very helpful and friendly. The whole room needed refurbished,

Relatively Clean and Comfortable.
Room was relatively clean and comfortable. Bed was quite comfortable. A bit run-down. Funky odor in kitchen area. Lower priced for the area. You get what you pay for.
