Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
We booked this motel because it was pet friendly and we travelled with our dog. When we entered the room there was a foul smell so we looked everywhere only to find a decomposing mouse under our bed. Later at night there was a noise coming from the cupboard and our bags. We looked and found one of our wrapped breakfast bars partly eaten. We threw all of our food into the rubbish bin outside and made sure everything was clean. Still, we could hear mice in our bedroom through the night. One trapped itself in the small empty plastic rubbish bin and was making quite a noise. The other found its way to one of our bags and travelled with us all the way to Brisbane. We came to the motel with one pet and left with two.
