Clean with comfy beds

Most previous guests have applauded the hygiene levels on display at the motel. Along with the rooms being measured as clean and tidy, they were also said to be well-equipped with beneficial amenities and comfy beds.

Negative Reviews

Tired and in need of updating

In terms of their overall condition, the rooms were not regarded in the best light by numerous past visitors that stayed at the accommodation. It has been claimed that the furnishings and décor of the rooms were showing their age.

Swimming pool a disappointment

The outdoor swimming pool that is available at the motel was a regular source of criticism for previous guests that wanted to use the facility. Along with it apparently not being open on occasion, the general state of the pool was also criticised at times.

Limited and awkward Wi-Fi service

When it came to the free Wi-Fi service offered, this feature of the accommodation was routinely criticised by former visitors. Along with its quality being judged unfavourably at times, the process of accessing the Wi-Fi - which currently involves using a code system - was considered inconvenient.
