Close to substandard. but clean

Review of Golfview Motel
2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 Jun 2016
This is a small motel that has not had anything done to it since the 60's when it was built
The bed was very comfortable but everything else in the unit looks as though it came from the thrift shop. The buildings are in poor repair, very cold as there are no drapes on most of the windows, the heater in the unit is inadequate for the winter, the units are not serviced during a stay( mine was 5 nights), there is a notice in the kitchen advising that bed sheets are only changed once a week but only on request and that guests must wash all he dishes and replace them in the cupboard. There is no sound proofing between the units and it is easy to hear people on either side conversing and snoring. In this day and age putting batts in the wall cavity would be a cheap remedy. The managers are very friendly and helpful, but a sign at the reception makes it clear that they are only available from 8.30am to 8.30pm."Do not ring the bell outside these hours" make guests feel a bit like a burden. It appears that there are only 7 units but parking is a bit of a problem. The grounds and gardens are very unkempt. Although the unit was clean , I feel that it is more like a cabin in a camping ground rather than a motel. There are many more motels in the area charging the same rate that are a better quality and experience. The units do not have telephones- (most people use their cell phones--- I don't! Not a recommended establishment

Have stayed here twice. Each time I have been entered in DOG SHOWS. My dog has been happy in her crate in the car. I have found the units spacious and very quiet. The unit was very clean and I would recommend this motel to anyone wanting a reasonable priced stay.

We stayed one night in Unit 5 of this motel. While a lovely view of the golf course, it was certainly a most basic motel. On a positive note, it was very clean and towels were good, however the unit was decorated with what can only be described as second-hand and sad old furniture. The 'bathroom' was smaller than a wardrobe and I could count the number of nozzles squirting water in the shower (my husband elected to wait until we drove home). I was astounded by the number of laminated notices in the kitchen area with instructions (apart from the essential evacuation notice) I counted five. Sorry to say that for $90 for the night, I am sure we could have done better, or perhaps paid a wee bit more for a much more pleasant room.

Reviewed 8 June 2015

We stayed 2 nights. The unit we had was no bigger than a kennel for a St Bernard. The size of the bathroom area probably wouldn't meet minimum Government guidelines. The owners weren't very friendly. They were new owners but should've made an effort to update the motel's profile and services that are online. On the plus side it was well stocked with the usual stuff(microwave, cups, plates, cutlery etc). The bed was literally stuck in a corner and difficult to get in and out of.
