Property condition

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This Motel does not have a reception office. The owners have bought 3 motels in a row, you have to check in at the Du Pont Motel, which is another block down the road. It would be best to ring ahead, so there is someone in the office, even though the sign says open from 9am to 9pm. We rang the 3 telephone numbers on the door, before someone answered, then had to wait 1/2 hour before someone turned up. At that stage, two more guests and two (renters? Because they both said the office is never manned for that long) had also arrived.

Stayed 4 nights in Dec. 2019

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The location was good and central to everything we needed. The unit was tidy but not that clean. We stayed for three nights and the unit was not serviced at all. No towels replaced. We wouldn’t stay here again.
