Stayed at the Scenic View Motel and on arrival was growled at for using Booking.com and said that they put higher rates on there. Then arrived in the room expecting something great for the sum we had paid, What we found was a room that was well in need of an update. Beds were comfortable but would definitely stay somewhere...

We stayed here for one night the room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The room was a studio unit it cost $135 which was reasonable for this room. The shower pressure was good and the bathroom amenities were nice. It was within walking distance to town and we didn't experience any road noise. Check in was smooth and friendly.
