There was no buffet breakfast as advertised but a continental breaky tray brought each night to the room for next morning except 2 nights they forgot and had to ask for it next morning...though the breakfast was quite good and large for a continental. Just dont like paying for something I 2as supposed to receive. My room had very dirty stained carpet but everything else was clean. The floor boards creaked in a particular area and very noisy. The staff were very nice and helpful.

One of the worst rooms I’ve ever had to stay in. I would not recommend this establishment to anyone.

Pros: Near to where my daughter is now living!
Cons: Get rid of all of the signs telling people what the can and can't do - very off-putting and not at all welcoming. Complete makeover of room overdue.
It is sad when the nicest thing you can write about a motel is that the shower was great! Room was very basic with badly stained carpet, only one chair despite the room accommodating three people, and the first (and lingering) impression was that despite it being one of the most expensive motels I stayed in while I was away, it was the least appealing. The reception area was more suitable for an automotive workshop than a motel, and unfortunately that left me expecting that the room would be terrible. - and that expectation was correct. Staff were friendly, the shower was really good, but the rest got a big thumbs down from me.

Noisy location

Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Not much you can do, room was clean and functional.
Location: Next to train tracks and has night club attached.
Stayed for the night for work. Noisy nightclub attached, next to train line (railway street, duh). Bed on wheels makes for a fun time on hard floor. Sitting on bed means you roll across the room. All in all, not terrible, just did not have a restful time.

better than expected

Pros: The staff was very accommodating and the room was very comfortable.
Cons: The banging of the blinds in the refurbished bathroom need to be stopped and the outside light needs to be turned off sometime during the night!!!
Location: Easy to find location.
Although the main train line is across the road/highway, I could not hear either the trains nor the traffic in the room.
