Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disappointed with my stay. Room had permanently running tap in bathroom. Room did not get made up on 2nd day. No new towels. Antenna socket hanging off wall. Exterior lights not working. Need to spend some money on maintenance. Used to have a nice breakfast at this motel. Not any more due to “covid”. Poor excuse to save a dollar. Not impressed
