Property was very poorly presented , rooms were extremely dirty and underwhelming! Shower was broken, carpets stained , marks on all the walls and there was broken handles on the draws and cupboards. After our complaint we were upgraded to another room equally as bad. Would not recommend this motel. Pictures do not describe the reality of this place.

Check in was quick and easy, but that’s where the positive notes end, upon entering our room it was immediate disappointment, the rooms are so tiny! There’s barely any room to breathe and the bathroom, my god you can barely move in there, it’s smaller than a plane bathroom, absolutely ridiculous! Then there’s the quality and cleanliness of the room, the bathroom door got stuck and wouldn’t close, the sink was smashed and the toilet seat was peeling!, the bed was filthy and covered in someone else’s hair, the sheets and towels were dirty and the walls were covered in grime, we complained and got moved to another room which had an even smaller bathroom and we no longer had a nice view (the first room had a pool view), we now had a view of a disgusting air conditioning vent which was extremely noisy and vibrated the windows which made it very hard to sleep, there was also very cold air coming from the window frames, my partner and I were freezing come night time. Another thing we weren’t impressed about was the fact that they hiked up the price for New Years yet closed several facilities including the diner, safe to say we will not be returning
