Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property has deteriorated over time. I have stayed at this motel at least 5 times over the past few years and have always been happy with the rooms. This time the rooms were unclean and the fixtures and fittings are neglected. We asked to change rooms because the toilet seat was in a terrible condition.
