10/10 Exceptional

One night stop
A standard Bella Vista motel with a lovely lady on duty. Great room the only downfall is that the Exit illuminated sign outside us so bright the whole room was light when trying to sleep. No way to get the curtains to block out the light. A minor thing that could cause issues to those who have problems getting to sleep.
