One Night, Been there before

Stayed one night, I had stayed there before. One of the lowest priced places on Munras Ave. So don't expect too much. They do have a pool and free continental breakfast. The sheets were loose and I not sure if the blanket was clean, so I didn't use the blanket. Good place if you really want to save some money but for a few dollars more another place might be better.

just ordinary

The lady who checked me in said that they had a continental breakfast. I went to it and was disappointed that they did not have coffee or tea only orange juice (small cup) for liquid drinks. The pool was closed and dirty but on their defense, the weather was too cool for swimming anyway. It was just a fair motel and I would not go back there again.

Good hotel, nice owners!

the ratio price/quality was excellent, the room super clean, and the owners perfectlly friendly. I would recomend this motel if you have a modest budget, and if you have a car. Walking downtown is absolutely possible, but it takes a good 30 minuts
