Good size unit, the room was serviced each day. On the first day I arrived there was a significant altercation (yelling match) between guests in an upstairs unit. Lots of "f" words and threats to call the cops. Pretty unpleasant. I was not sure about safety, but no more incidents after that.

The unit was nice and clean. The beds were comfortable. Unfortunately the bedroom isnt fully seperate, just on a second landing, not ideal for a family with older children if privacy is wanted. We asked for the advertied option of a second queen bed but ended up with 2 singles. Also the advertised spa bath wasnt working.

Motel was nice and clean, pretty standard. We had a slight issue with hot water after one person had a shower, basically had to wait for the water to heat up again for the 2nd person
