6/10 Good

My only criticism with the motel was the airconditioning. The machines are old and very noisy and need to be replaced. I could not open any windows as there are no fly screens are security screens on the sliding doors. This was the third time I have stayed there and the third time i experienced this. The staff did offer a change of room, but the room option still had the same issue. The air-conditioning needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the rooms are comfortable, clean and with comfy beds. I like the location and ability to eat is close by. Staff are friendly and the bathrooms are big, clean and have good products.

Verified Lastminute guest review

8/10 Very good

Whilst the room did have some marks on the walls etc. I felt this was normal wear and tear as the room and bathroom facilities were clean and well maintained. I did not require room service as there was sufficient towels etc. to last for the duration of my stay and staff were approachable and friendly.
