At 10:00 PM there was a party in the carpark outside and was very loud and no consideration for other guests that had to get up early. No one came and told them to quiet down or to go into their rooms.

Room was large and clean. The only problem I had was with the doors. Every time one closed you could hear it all over the motel. I’m sure if some padding was put between the doors and the jams will help immensely
