We have stayed here before which was great and always appreciate a motel that is dog friendly. Pros- The staff are lovely, friendly and welcoming. The location is perfect for a quiet night sleep. The bed sheets, bathroom & kitchen was very clean. However this property lets itself down with the lack of maintenance of furniture, curtains, windows, & paint. This could easily be solved but it feels like the owners aren’t prioritising this which is a shame. Probably wouldn’t stay again unless this changes.

Instantaneously the man at the reception was welcoming and helpful! Greeting us with smiles after a long drive he booked us in no time with generous amenities, then swiftly showed us to our room. Very private and lovely, next to the pool and spa which were really well kept! The room was tidy and commendable! After settling in, the receptionist helped us hire kayaks, again with generosity and even helped us get it to the water! Other staff seemed friendly too with smiles when walked past. It’s a bit far from the centre where all the restaurants are but the walk is so pleasant and lovely with pretty views of the water.’ So far loving Cascade Motel and I hope others receive the good experience we did. Would actually pay more to stay here.
