The staff/owner was super helpful and friendly. My parents (who only speaks Chinese) were looked after very well despite the language barrier. The owner even escorted my parents to the Intercity bus stop in person in the early morning too! (The InterCity bus stop is 200 meters away from the motel, which is super convenient).
