Easy booking, check in and out. The room was quite large that could fit family with 2 small children. This motel was aged but still comfortable. Nice and clean, No kitchen but had microwave, kettle and small fridge just everything we needed for nice stay.

City Lights is all you need in a motel around here that’s close to most places. Very clean very tidy and everything works well. Nice little touches around the place as well. I would definitely recommend this motel if you’re passing through Tweed.

No to everything. I really doubt that they would provide this sort of service. As long as you are not in a wheelchair there is plenty of choice.
