4/10 Fair

When we checked in it started out great they showed us two rooms to pick from however neither of them was the room we booked. He then said someone else was in the room we booked so he didn’t know what to do. He said I should have booked with them directly instead of using Expedia and then I would have gotten the room I wanted. We needed somewhere to stay as being a long weekend we wouldn’t have been able to find something else to accomodate 5 people so chose one of the rooms. I asked for a discount and they gave us a voucher for a restaurant that they also owned so we ended up giving them more money instead of getting a discount! Parking and driveway was very tight with no real roadside parking either. We will not be staying there again and would not recommend to anyone.

10/10 Exceptional

Amy was super helpful in helping me organise late check-in, and I'm super grateful that she dealt with my late night call when we went to the wrong door of our motel room! I think the room smelt a little of cigarette but we quickly adjusted, but I imagine it's left over from when people could smoke in motel rooms as the decor was outdated but still a really great room to stay in. Amy was able to give us separate beds after initially telling us there was only a queen bed available, so I'm grateful for that too. Overall, we had a great stay and I wish I'd been able to stay longer than we did! Would definitely stay there again!
