    Cleanest I've seen, very nice stay”

    Cleanest motel I've ever stayed in I think. The room seems relatively new and well-maintained. The shower is right on the bathroom floor and delineated by a shower curtain - but this was absolutely fine since the bathroom was so clean and drained well. Good supply of dishes, a functional refrigerator and microwave made breakfast a breeze. Highly recommend. Easy walk to the shops and restaurants on the main drag.
