3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
It was annoying to get to the motel and then find we had to walk 150m down the road to another motel to check in. This seems to be a permanent set up. Also only one pillow per head and flat pillows at that. Very clean.

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
There was nothing we liked about this property. There were trails of ants in the Kitchen we didnt have much food but in our bag where we had crackers chocolates nibbles etc there were many ants The bed was not comfortable linen was clean bed well made. Bathroom had alot of black mould in different areas. Only one chair to sit on at table an armchair very grubby.This is an honest opinion from an x Motel owner.We would not stay or recommend the Motor Lodge or stay ourselves again
