    There was a strong smell of sewer gas coming from the drain in the bathroom, particularly when the fan was going. There also was no hot water in the shower, the best I could get was lukewarm.

    The safe, clean and comfortable home for you!

    This family run motel makes you feel you stay at your parents' home. The employees are friendly, helpful and caring! I learned more about the town by chatting with the employees than by reading and sightseeing. We got the useful coupons and enjoyed to get the delicious food and some other items. The rooms are clean, and well supplied. I especially love the back and front windows my close doctor friend emphasized to request for the air circulation during the scary pandemic time. The parking by my window really made me feel safe and convenient! The location is exellent and we can walk to most restaurants, other stores and ferry in about 10 ms. (We even got Chinese food). My friends recommended this motel to me and I will absolutely recommend to more of my other friends. Tell you how much we love this place!: we have started to plan our stay in the same place for next year already! (My husband also wanted me to add that "the place is very quiet and the bathroom is extremely clean!")
