~ February 2016 ~ Very nice motel. Would go back. Nice and quiet, very friendly staff. We wished we were staying longer. Would recommend this motel. Very close to restaurants and all amenities... We will be back to visit again.

~February 2016 ~ My boyfriend and I stayed here over the long weekend and it was perfect. The staff were really nice and friendly. We were personally shown to our room which we appreciated - it made us feel comfortable and welcome. The room was spotless, the bedding was crisp and clean and the bed itself was extremely comfortable. We enjoyed our stay! What a great place. Would suggest to co-workers and family.

~Beautiful ... inside and out. Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Spa Bath and Free Broadband Internet~

~Everything about the stay was fantastic. Right from when you arrived you were made to feel welcome, which was then followed by a very clean studio unit. This all added to a lovely weekend ~

~ Nice quiet location with stunning views of the mountains ~
