Adequate but basic
Adequate motel near the beach
A bit disappointed by the age and condition of the furnishings. Room had a view of a fence and did not match the reviews I had read. Stayed in much nicer places for the same price.

it was a very short overnight stay only.
quite, clean, good location
we stayed there for overnight on way to Wellington, didn,t have the opportunity to explore the area fully. It turned out to be quite far from Wellington, which was not expected. Otherwise there didn,t seem to be any problem with this place.

Excellent. That's all I need to say. Your request for 50 characters in length is intrusive. Thank you
