Very noisy with construction running outside. Not what we expected, extremely misleading ad. Images on add only showed the ‘expensive’ rooms. Kitchen had roaches and the door in the kitchen which lead to the back of the property was always open which didn’t help with the mess. Shared bathrooms were ok.

Dear Edwin I am sorry that you did not like our room. I note that you did not stay nor did you accept our offer of a refund. Given this I assume your opinion of the bed was based on glancing visual inspection, not having actually slept in the bed? The room pictured on the booking sites is of another room, of the same category (Queen Room with Shared Facilities). Upon inspection the only difference is the location of the window relative to the bed. These rooms are also accurately described as being 12m2. A rating of 1 out of 5 for a room you did not stay in is hardly rational but as is the nature of the world today, we must accept it.

Dear anonymous Thank you for your feedback. We will look into your concerns. Regarding your booking. The room you booked on booking.com is titled Budget Double room with Shared Facilities, hence the separate amenities. At the time of making your booking it is clearly disclosed in the terms and conditions that we require a $100 pre-authorisation for each booking. I am sorry if these two facts came as a surprise to you however we do try to be up front and obvious with our disclosures. A pre-authorisation is not a "cost"to you, it is a temporary hold on funds in your account, to cover any incidental expenses. Regarding the WiFi, we do provide 24/7 Free WiFi in the motel and I would always recommend addressing any service or connection issues with staff as they are only too happy to assist.
