First issue for me was an unmanned Reception at around 6.00 in the evening, and the phone to pick up didn't work, and the alternative number to ring went to voicemail. Someone did turn up a few minutes later, but whilst I expected a motel it was more like an apartment complex. I'm guessing there has been a change in ownership and a low staff level put in place. Great location but the accommodation is more at the budget end than the photos would suggest.
