My wife and I stayed at the Chalet Motel with a friend and her parents who were visiting from overseas (5 adults). We stayed in chalet #3 which had two bedrooms (one with a full bed and the other room had three singles), a bathroom with shower (no tub), a kitchenette with an oven and a lounge / living room with two sofas. We were there for two nights and found it to be quite comfortable.
Previous reviews mentioned poor water pressure, but I did not notice any such problem and the shower stayed warm even after four people had showered prior. My only complaint would be the double bed which was a bit too springy.
Extras such as Sky, a DVD player, free DVDs to watch (available in the office), a daily newspaper, and $5 a day Wi-fi also added to our stay. Some have complained that the motel charges $2 for a towel for the hot pools, but at the end of the day, it's cheaper than at the hot pools (which, considering the cost of the hot pools, should be made available for free).
We would stay at the Chalet Motel again.
