“Great Little Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2008

This was listed as a two star motel. It offers basic accommodation, although there is a small pool.

The best part was the cleanliness. It was spotless! Everywhere. We were met and checked in by the owner, who was very friendly, and obviously takes great pride in his work. While not a "fancy" motel by any means, it offers hassle-free accommodations for tourists on a budget, with no worries.

The pool was warm, and also very clean.

For a place that offers only the basics, but does it extremely well, I highly recommend John's Motel.

  • Liked — Absolutely Spotless; very warm welcome.
  • Disliked — A little distant from tourist areas, but not by much.
  • Stayed July 2008, travelled with family
