El motel Hillcrest Motor Inn es genial. Patrick, el manager, te hace sentir una más desde el primer momento y está siempre atento a ti. El lugar es muy tranquilo, bonito y cómodo. Pese a estar un poco lejos a pie del centro, el paseo se hacia ameno.
Las vistas, los animales y la tranquilidad es lo mejor del lugar. ¡Recomendado totalmente!
