Negative Reviews

Limited Wi-Fi

Guests warn that the Wi-Fi in the motel is slow and very limited in bandwidth, so it is best suited for basic tasks, but not watching videos. However, one can purchase additional MBs for a fee.

Minor road noise

Perpetual traffic, even during the night, can be problematic for light sleepers allocated road-facing rooms.

Uncomfortable beds

Guests often complain about the bad pillows and uncomfortable beds. According to reviews, the mattresses are a bit too hard.
