It is disappointing to receive this review. I am not sure if Motel 98 was not what you were expecting or there was something wrong that we could have rectified.

The major draw card for this motel is its restaurant, I have been coming to this place over the last 20 years infrequently and the restaurant maintains a high standard. The motel rooms are old but clean.
