Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Friendly staff, room smelt fresh and was very clean and spacious. Kitchenette was handy with a microwave, toaster, kettle and electric frypan. Loved being able to access Youtube and Netflix on the big smart tv in the room. The beds here are really comfortable and the room had plenty of desk space as well. All in all, a very pleasant and quiet stay and even though the motel seemed to be fully booked, staff were always on hand when needed. Parking is undercover. There is a pool here , wifi and guest laundry as well. Definitely will stay again amd recommend to others.

Never again!!
Booked online for a deluxe king as pictured and instead when arriving at motel was informed someone booked at the same time and we had been upgraded (downgraded in our opinion) to a family room tucked away in a corner. No choice. It was full of beds (naturally). The floor was disgustingly dirty but the rest of unit was OK. Feel we were 'duped' by management. Not worth the price. Not happy at all!

Good for someone looking for budget accommodation
The room seems to have been renovated not so long ago which is good. When arrived, inside was pretty hot so turned on the air-conditioner. I wasn't comfortable with the mouldy look...not surprisingly the air smelt pretty bad. Next, we were trying to have a cup of tea...found very dirty mugs in the cabinet. Someone used them and left in the cabinet without washing! all three mugs in different shapes and colours were with dried up coffee and tea. Pretty disgusting...I've found a note in the kitchen. You get a fine if you leave dirty dishes so I guess someone just put them in the cabinet without washing. I asked for a quiet room and the manager kindly allocated us in the corner room. However, people were coming and going between 2-4am. Talking pretty roundly. Woke us up few times....we also didn't like people kept smoking in front of their rooms. we had to pass them very close to get to our room. Having said that this is good for someone who is looking for budget accommodation.
