2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
The motel room and surroundings were very nice. But my encounter with a staff member was confronting and judgemental. Telling me I shouldn't book accommodation online. That I'm spending money that isn't going to NZ. And that I was supposed to pay for our accommodation a week earlier (I was not told this). I told the staff member this and he said "well they wouldn't would they". I thought afterwards that the Motel had my name, address, and phone number that they could've contacted me to arrange pre-payment for the room. I would recommend Murchison for a night but not this Motel.
