We found this motel dated with mismatched cutlery and crockery, dripping taps in the kitchen and basin, and the light above our bed flickered and faded (not completely off) and the ceiling had some kind of water damage and peeling paint. There were also ants...More
This motel is a mix of both good and bad features, so I'll mention both.
The good: good location, spacious room, fantastic water pressure, best parking that we've found anywhere yet, Sky channels.
The unfortunate: lack of a welcome, with a "give me the money"...More

I think the response you got from Liz C was sound advice and really the only advice that a traveller could give. After all it's entirely up to the motel and whoever you booked it with. Don't know why you reacted to her advice as you have. She never questioned that your husband suddenly died, she in fact acknowledged that you may have reason to be refunded on compassionate grounds and wished you luck. Good grief, why are you even putting this question up here on this forum? Just ask the motel, nothing anyone here can do!! Sorry to hear you lost your husband and I too wish you well in getting a refund. Jeez!
