What a lovely motel to stay in ...

So peaceful and quite a lovely room to stay in with a beautiful bed to sleep in. I didn't want to get out in the mornings and the pool was just to die for. I would tell everybody to try it out. The staff was so nice and friendly to us I would be back again.


Little gem ...

I was very satisfied with our stay at the Shady Rest. Great value for money and friendly staff. The facilities were above average and the rooms did not disappoint. Clean and comfortable with a relaxing feeling and decor. Covered parking to your room and handy coke vending machine near check in was great for a few Bourbon and cokes to wind down after a day on the road.You will be happy with your choice if you stay here.

Highly recommended ...

We were late to call on our way north at 9pm, but the owner could not have been more accommodating to us. We even were able to order a sumptuous breakfast over the phone which was delivered to our room in the morning. Very clean room with tea and coffee. We would stay here again for sure. Highly recommended.
