DANGER!!! So noisy!!! It s on riccarton road. U WONT SLEEP all night long. - There 5 or 6 motels even better quality on the same road! Be smart and do not spend any cent here! - I paid for 3 days but I needed to arrive on 2nd day due to changes in my itinerary... Of course they didn't refund the 1st night... Even if they had time to sell it to someone else. - They were knocking on my door punctually, pushing me out... They told me there only 1 maid for all the rooms and she has to do all rooms ( 4 hours needed between check in and check out). - Internet problems. - I left my luggage when they pushed me out on the garage of the office room, I stayed out all morning until 4pm. I picked up my staff and I needed to pee, she said that I have to go to McDonald's... So rude!
