1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
It was horrible. Dirty, old and in terrible conditon. Do not arrive at night as there is no lighting outside. On a very noisey road too.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Nice that there was a microwave but bowls or plates to use in it would have been helpful. The Venetian blinds looked like they’d been dusted with a cricket bat. Shower was very good for a motel.

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Falsely advertise late check-in available
Booked this motel last minute based on the profile and the motel's website noting 24 hour check-in upon request. I phoned immediately after (7:30pm) and was told the staff was leaving at 8pm, could not accommodate a 9pm check-in, and that we would still be charged. They still haven't offered a refund despite not providing any services or accommodations.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
There was no one available for check in and the contact numbers were unreachable. We ended up sleeping in the car while the other families that couldn’t check in also slept in their car or on the floor of a friends place. There were three groups that ultimately couldn’t check in on the night and based on my discussion with the owner/manager the next day this would seem to be a regular occurrence. Very difficult to rate the facilities since weren’t allowed access to use them, despite having prepaid and they do not refund. I would warn others against booking into this motel if they wanted any guarantee of getting accomodation Zero stars if that rating is available.
