Dirty and uncomfortable Need a holiday after staying there Rude staff telling us they would only service our motel room which only had 2 towels once during our four night stay. We had to call them after the third night to say we hadn’t had a service and no clean towels. Only good thing is it’s a great location for the Bowls Club
