The service was outstanding. The lovely lady at the desk was accommodating and very friendly. I appreciate good ole friendly service.. my room was clean, particularly the bathroom. I arrived after a long day of travelling and whilst it looks as though the motel is under construction the room was comfortable, warm and clean inside.

The operator was friendly but the unit was awful. The carpet is filthy. In the bathroom and toilet and shower all the corners are full of filth and mould etc. Everything is VERY worn and very old. The beds were fine and the bedding clean. The whole complex needs a complete refurbish, including the asphalt paving which is full of holes etc.

Stopped for 1 night and had a good nights sleep, Comfortable bed with lovely sheets, great hot shower and fluffy towels. The bathroom floor did look like it could do with a good clean and the internet is terrible. We could hear road noise and in the morning could hear people moving around upstairs. It is an older style motel but the price reflects this.

Location is the only redeeming quality. I should have read the other reviews before I booked. Cleanliness: mouldy smell in the bedroom, bedroom carpet felt tacky underfoot, oven knobs sticky with food residue. Maintenance issues: dining table rickety, front door lock insecure.

The lady on reception was friendly and check in was easy. I drove round to the room to find a pillar in the way of my allocated car park. Not a problem until a car parked opposite me and a truck needed to get through. The room was awful. The dishes in the cupboard had old food attached. The bathroom was dirty, I mean really dirty and included the bonus feature of a spider nest on the window. The heater was not adequate for the cold ( and finding a plug for it involved serious furniture rearranging). I worked my way through the things, cleaned the dishes, bought food I could eat without using too many pans etc. Then we get to the noise. Not only did it seem that the water tank for everyone was in my room but you could hear everything in the rooms around, including people using the toilet. Just when I thought I’d made it through, I found the towel I had just dried my hair with was covered in mould. Stay somewhere else.
