One more off the bucket list
It was a pity the restaurant wasn't open for dinner or breakfast but all motels have been struggling lately to maintain staff levels.

Late Check in No problem
Very helpful staff, i appreciated that my late check in was not a problem, and i was given a room upgrade. Only passing through for one night, but i would be happy to stay here again when passing through.

4/10 Fair

The staff were lovely. The property however was very outdated. My baby had pulled the drawers on top of him as they were no longer attached to the headboard. This property was advertised as a hotel and it is infact a motel. The restaurant was closed down, most things looked old and run down. I selected a non pet friendly room… the loungeroom with queen bed stunk of wet dog. The bedroom with a queen and two single beds stunk of stale cigarette. One of the residents tried holding my baby. There was rust throughout the bathroom. I tripped over the extension cord leading to the pool. The carpets were musty and the entire time I was there I was very itchy (I assume due to the fact I’m allergic to animals).

10/10 Exceptional

A perfect waypoint on the long drive from CBR to BNE, and the hands-free after hours check-in, before hours check-out works wonders when you're on a long roadtrip with uncertain arrival times. Room was massive, and well outfitted, parking easy, and the place serenely quiet.
