We stayed for 5 nights. The owners are so welcoming and will do everything to make your stay comfortable. They really do go above and beyond. They are currently renovating and the motel is looking very smart. I would happily stay again.

Hi Susan We can accommodate all 4 of you in another room @ $20.00 extra per adult. Would you like me to go ahead and change that booking for you. Payment can be made on arrival.

Check with the proprietors, but the unit that we had was a King Size suite, but it had a second bedroom with twin beds in it. That should work out okay if it is available.
