    Very good for a motel. Clean, well kept and next to the Wetlands. Convenient enough for lunch venues, but actual shopping is a drive away

    Chill and cozy

    I got a very late check in and early check out, were easy to arrange, friendly staff. Very clean room and large comfy bed. Tables and chairs outside the room a bit old. Would be nice if there was beach chairs at the pool. Can access to pool and common areas through the room’s back door. Very chill and cosy. Didn’t have to chance to try out the restaurant food but it did like inviting. Will come stay again for sure

    Nice cosy and comfortable room. However, looking into the courtyard and sitting outside was a little stark.
