The images of the property published on the website weren't an accurate reflection of the current day condition of the property.

Arrived at this so called “motel” which is actually a halfway house of permanent residents which are homeless, alcoholics and drug addicts. Saw my so called room which had stained blood on pillow case and cockroaches on walls. A lovely homeless lady came to me as no one attending at reception and said it is not safe to stay there. I rang the mobile number on door requesting a refund to be laughed at and hung up on. DO NOT BOOK THIS PLACE IT IS DESPICABLE.

Very run down. Dirty place. The AC wasn’t working. The “new” key “ only opened the door if you stood on one leg and wiggled the key in a certain way. I found that out after being locked out of my room for half an hour while the owners left to go “shopping”. The bed smelt awful and was like a hammock with what used to be pillows. The towels were very old, smelly and felt wet. The bathroom door was very hard to slide and was falling apart. The fly screen had a fist sized hole in it. The fridge wasn’t turned on, which I didn’t realise until the next day when everything I had in there was warm. The TV was almost smaller than my iPad. There were random undesirables walking through the grounds, knocking on doors. The walls were soo thin I was woken up at 3am by next door’s visitors arrived and talked for hours. The smoke detector was not working and without a cover but it did have a sticker on it stating it was inoperable. There was none of the normal stuff like shampoo/conditioner or the little things you normally get. The water pressure in the shower, well there wasn’t any really and the taps were so fiddly, one millimetre either side of perfect and the water was cold or scorching hot. There was no QR code, or check in, anywhere and no hand sanitiser. I found hair in the bed! I felt dirty just being there. It was the kind of place that should be rented by the hour.

No hot water either last night or this morning. Lucky I work in an office and not on a construction site.
