Looking for a motel?

Both travelers on the road and on a budget rely on motels for convenient stops with reasonable rates. Direct access to parking makes a motel an easy place to catch some sleep after a day of driving. The relatively smaller size of this accommodation type can also help make check-in quick and easy.

    It's basically a Motel right by the airport, but it must have been recently remodeled and offered the best value for money on our entire trip. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, room had a coffee maker, small microwave and fridge which I appreciated. Parked for free right outside our room.

    The lady at Reception was really friendly and helpful. The rooms were a decent size, particularly the twin room with a coffee machine which was very welcome. The rooms were clean and tidy although they could do with replacing some cracked tiles. The location is on a main road with places to eat nearby and just a short drive to the beach. There was plenty of free parking. We didn't have time to use the pool but it looked nice. The motel felt safe with a pretty exterior. We had a really pleasant stay here.
