After nearly 12 hours of driving and ferries, I needed a rest for the night and found the best hotel I could have possibly asked for. Just a block off the main Highway 1, this hotel has been fully updated recently with modern decor, well maintained, spacious rooms and a nice check-in lobby. The staff were very friendly and kind, and immediately accommodated a discount rate applicable through my employer.
They even had a tray of apples waiting at the desk.
Breakfast was excellent, a great selection of fruits, juices, yogurt, pastries and the classic scrambled eggs and sausage. The TV in the breakfast room was tuned to the news channel, so I was able to receive road updates, and as it turned out there had been an incident on the highway, therefore I was able to adjust my route and detour.
The room was very clean, good amenities, and quite frankly, it was one of the best nights sleep I have ever had away from home. Despite being near the railway tracks I didn't hear a thing from the trains passing.
Nearby there are several good restaurants, a Walmart, gas stations and easy access back to the highway.
The pool facility is well located in the center and in it's own building, so no kids are tromping around the halls all the time.
Can say I would recommend this stop completely. less
