The property was well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The view was beautiful. The room was "old school" motel. We went in the fall and unfortunately for us, only one restaurant was open and it was just ok. The breakfast at the motel was good. My big complaint was the beds. They were sleeping on a board. My husband could barely get out of bed by morning. Everytime you moved on the bed it sounded like it was going to collapse or a spring come flying through.

Our booking was not sent from Expedia so there was no room available for us upon arrival. The wonderful man at the desk was extremely helpful and found us a house to stay in for the night. We were very grateful for his kindness and very pleased with the property he sent us to😊

Loved the view from the room. Very close to next room and no dividers/privacy so had to limit when we sat out there since neighbour was loud talking on her phone. Too close for comfort there! Room has older decor but very clean. Can hear right through walls ...again loud neighbours!

The location is very convenience but I don’t like the services. It is quiet expensive comparing to the others I had in my trip.
