This motel is absolutely disgusting!! The rooms are disgusting the floor looks like it hasn’t been cleaned in years! The car park is full of rubbish and smells like vomit!!! We checked in went to our room and left! I lost $107 for accommodation and $25 parking! I was there for 10 minutes max! One elevator didn’t even work! If you looking for a disgusting dirty motel and a car park full of junkies and vomit this is your place! I will never go back! Enjoy my free $137!

Found it difficult to sleep. Other guest fighting and arguing. Bashing doors and making noise well after midnight.

The main reason I chose this property for my overnight stay was the price point. However with such a low price point, I failed to consider others that would be taking advantage of the low prices - there was some noise and obvious drug use from other guests, one in particular declaring loudly that she had just got out of jail while riding the elevator. The cleanliness of the room was ok, but could have used a little bit more of a clean - like the day-to-day stuff was done, but it felt like the weekly cleaning and maintenance was not done - dust and "items" above lights and on top of areas that would not normally be seen; I will be first to admit that areas such as this could be cleaned only weekly, but this appeared as though it had not been done in some time (perhaps months.) Then the staff were hot and cold. The night manager was lovely, and did everything in her power to accommodate me and make my stay more comfortable. The morning staff however just saw me as a number and even a small request of a bowl and spoon to enjoy breakfast (purchased elsewhere due to Covid-19) was denied because the "kitchen is closed." Meanwhile every room has a number of coffee cups, spoons and glasses - would it be so hard to ad a single bowl and spoon to the wash up? I think if I had the option to stay here again or an alternative unknown for a similar price I would probably go with the unknown. If you are on a budget though, the room was comfortable, just do a clean check before unpacking.

This place may have been great back in the day, but not now. This is a very tired and run down property. The location is good and central but that is about it. When I opened the door to my room I was greeted with a stale cigarette smell. The room is like staying with grandma and you can feel every spring in the mattress. The bathroom was serviceable and clean. If you need a cheap place to drop your bags, have a shower, and head out into the city then this is fine. If you are going to be spending any time in the room conscience then find somewhere else to stay.

My key was programmed to the wrong room and I opened the door to a lady laying on the bed. Very embarrassing for me. I iron in the room didn’t work.
