This was honestly the worst motel experience I’ve had in my life. It was so dirty and grotty. Needs a seriously good clean, paint and repair. I would not recommend this place to anyone. It’s cheap and nasty. Spend the extra dollars on a place you can at least feel clean at.

The price initially, however the place is digesting, the noise level and behaviour of “locals” staying at hotel nothing short of disgraceful. Do not stay here, would be safer, cleaner and more comfortable to sleep in your car

Absolutely filthy, cockroaches running around on floor, stunk of urine, mice faeces on table, pubic hair on floor. Blood trails in car park, never been washed off. Needs to be reviewed by health inspector.

I had to book this hotel at the last minute because the booking platform AGODA screwed up my previous booking with a better hotel. Had I known this was as noisy and unclean as I found, I would have gladly paid double and stayed at a higher quality hotel. Friendly staff but unfriendly conditions and cockroaches..
