Hello All,

We were busy this  Summer with putting together a new landscape in front of the building. Here are some pictures.

Fall came around with more beauty and relaxation time; it's a wonderful thing to be able to travel and a privilege for us to be here at your service!

We would love to share with you the publication of our new web page, we are very please the way it came out and the final work looks wonderful!

We did rearrange the furniture is room eleven; it looks a little more spacious!

And,... there is so much more we are planning to do...

Enjoy your Autumn and make the best of the Fall season and the upcoming holidays!

How To Book a Hotel Room at our property

Booking a hotel is very easy and there is a variety of ways to do it. 

Some people love the thrill of the bargain hunt; others want to talk to the hotel staff in person, so they can be sure and arrange exactly what they want.

Then, there are the people who let a travel agent handle it for them.
Also is the easy way of online booking search engine, showing you alternative days and room types when booking.

There are  a few common ways to book a hotel room with us. All of them will require a credit card, in order to reserve the room and secure your rate.

Do you Have people....

I've worked on different institutions in the past, holding different jobs, however, I am experiencing a new trend here at the motel business; customers I see for the first time or even saw just a year ago, come by the office to give me a hug.

Do you have people give you hugs at your job, or at your business?

I have people come to me and they say: "oh, Carolina, you did such a great job to this place, let me hug you; I hope you don't mind I will take pictures of such and such..."
Or just stop in the lobby before departing and give me a hug!....

...from kids, teens to middle age to older ladies,...they come to the office and give me HUGS....

I must be doing something wright, I would say.

Whatever business you are in - the question is : DO YOU HAVE PEOPLE GIVE YOU HUGS?....

This season happened more then ever.....I am glad to know people are leaving this place - HAPPY!
