We booked this motel purely on its location to the airport and that it offered a shuttle service to the airport with the opportunity to secure parking while you were away for $8 per day. The receptionist, Martina, was very helpful on arrival and our room was what you would expect for a motel, basic but very clean and with everything you would need. The bed was a little 'bouncy' but overall, we slept ok and received a prompt alarm call the next morning as we had to be up early. We had booked into the restaurant beforehand and were impressed with the selection of meals, not we expected from a motel restaurant. The restaurant staff, Noelene, Valantina and Courtney were cheerful and welcoming. Courtney, who was one of the restaurant supervisors, was very attentive to our dietary needs and came back twice to check certain aspects, which we were very impressed with. Our food came exactly as we had ordered and was tasty; my paella was surprisingly not bad at all. My only gripe, and it is a small one, is that there wasn't a suitable dessert for a gluten and lactose intolerant person- maybe fresh fruit or a sorbet?
We were very happy with our overall experience at the Best Western Motel and would definitely return if we had an early flight again. less
