The property looked old and worn out. Whilst the bathrooms had been recently renovated to a degree the whole effect wasn't overly well done. There was mould on the window sill. The bed was Ok and the heater worked well. The motel was very busy the night we stayed and the internet would not work no matter how many times we tried.
