        Great motor lodge”

        Friendly staff, new and modern-designed interior and comfortable environment

        The Lodge provides great parking space, very ideal for tourists with cars rented. It's located on the side of the main road. But drivers need to be aware of the unclear sign of the Lodge. The room, bedroom and the small pantry are very spacious. Facilities are all new. The design of the room gives a very cozy feeling to me. A very nice stay.

        Motel is on a very busy road and we had the room closest to the road so made it worse. Also people above us were noisy. Bathroom was not overly clean and after one shower steamed the place out and became very damp even with the fan on.
