    A very good motel, well located, clean and quiet.

    No breakfast available, weekend rate is multiplied by 2.

    Guest rating

    Well-kept, large room, comfortable bed and beautiful nature all around.

    There was no real seating for two people to eat. The internet connection is a bit unstable and the TV is outdated.

    The location near 441 away from the noise of the road. The motel parking lot, daily cleaning and restocking

    The interior noise (air conditioning in the other rooms, a continuous noise: a kind of snoring from an outside refrigerator (above? next to it?), particularly unpleasant around, the rolling of the suitcases on the upper balcony. of the coffee but no tea, no breakfast

    Great

    Proximity to the museum and the river

    Be careful all the restaurants close at 8 am and the shops even earlier! You have to arrive well in advance if you want to eat.

    Great

    Everything was great. I don't think they served breakfast and that's always a plus for us when we travel. This was a last minute booking so for the price it was great.
