Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness
This was the second time I've stayed at this motel and the first was a better experience. This time there was residue left on the bathroom tiles where I could see some shoe prints that weren't mine, the white hand towel hanging up was dirty and the shower flooded the room as soon as it was turned on, leaving the bath mat saturated. It was definitely a bit more disappointing than my first experience staying there.
