Dont bother
We paid for a king size bed. We got a double bed! Room could def use an upgrade, fridge had black all round the front at the bottom. Laundry room i wouldnt go near, full of dirty clothes all over the machine and ironing board!! Very dirty laundry. As for the reception area very cluttered and un inviting. Asked if they had a fan we could borrow as air con wasnt the best lady said she d get back to us, never did. Smoke billowed down from room next door as they were smoking outside in their area so we couldnt leave door open,think motel must be used for emergency housing clients too as couple rooms had their own furniture out front and kids toys bikes etc. Alot of dodgy looking cars and characters so wouldnt recommend on that alone. Mates were in next room and had a cock roach!!! Paid $699 as special rate for 4 nights def rec going elsewhere.
