I would recommend this motel to anyone. The rooms are large and clean with good beds. We received a warm welcome and plenty of information. Breakfast not included - which is the only thing on our wish list not covered.

Reasonably priced for a big, comfortable and warm room. An informative welcome and straightforward people to deal with. Franz isn't exactly buzzing, but the motel is a good place to come back to each evening.

A really excellent motel. Great reception on arrival and they booked a chopper flight for me as soon as I arrived. Big clean rooms, and internet at $10 for over night, which is better than some other cheap skate motels who charge $2 per 1/4hr.
