Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

The location was good but the property is run down and in need of a major renovation or complete ‘tear down’ . The guy who checked us in was lovely but the actual room was not in great shape.. the shower door did not operate correctly and leaked water on floor, light switches dirty ( we used tissues to turn on/off, everything banged about! Our main concern was the stairs going up to the two bedrooms... they were so narrow and steep you had to walk up sideways.. no bathroom upstairs either so difficult for my older parents to utilize... we were very disappointed as felt the room was not cheap!

property is facing the road so had to shut down blind at all times to avoid eye contact with strangers on the street

    Average, there is a lot that could be improved. A weird smell in the room, possibly a cleaning product used. Mirror in our room was very old and showing signs of wear on the actual mirror. Motel is very dated. Check in was quick, but not really very friendly. Check out, non existent. Rang bell, no one came. Left key on desk.
