This is an excellent motel! The staff was great. The rooms are nice and well priced. You'll get free high speed internet with your room!!! The resort is just down the road from Motorola and easy access from the airport.

This is a really great restaurant. The service is fantastic and the steaks are great. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but stop by. If you are in the area, have dinner here!

This place came highly recommended for their unique sauce, but I just didn't get it. I thought the sauce wasn't that unique -- in fact. I really didn't like it. The service wasn't all that great either and it was very noisy. I don't plan to go back.

For all of the hype this place got, I thought it was just OK. They do have a chips and salsa bar, but I thought the salsas were uninteresting. The food was ok, but one member of our party got sick that evening, possibly from the food. I don't think I'll go back.

Bring your appetite, but don't expect great food. You get a lot, especially if you order the Cadillac, but I would say the BBQ was only so so. It is a fun place to go, but I wouldn't order the Cadillac again. Instead, I would order something special off the menu.
