Overall pretty good. Some single rooms very tight and small but good enough to stay in for a night. Thank you

As the Motel is circa the 1960s, it has a lot of vintage retro features, which made up for the somewhat poor conditions of the bathroom. I had a visit to this Motel on my bucket list. I enjoyed it; but I suspect many fussy people would not like it.

As soon as i opened the door, i was greeted with a large pet pee stain on the floor that obviously hadnt been cleaned properly. I was going to move the bed over it to keep my toddler away from it, however the bed had obviously not cleaned under for a long time. I went to step onto the balcony and found there was a step outside starting literally half way across my door way, thankfully i looked first or would have broken my leg. The balcony door didnt stay shut unless firmly bolted from the inside, the balcony itself was littered with cigarette butts and filthy. The air conditioner unit was held in place outside with basically just a foamy filling. My mothers room next door didnt even have glass in the door, just poorly attached perspex that fould be pushed into room. Over all unclean and unsafe! Not sure how this place passed OH&S standards. Dont bring your children here.
