Very basic motel and about what you'd expect given the price, although would have appreciated a hair dryer. Staff member provided wrong room number via text which caused some confusion. During check out, staff member again not available, and yelled down from open window to put key in box.

Booking was made via Wotif because not pre-paid. Booking was received by Hotel from Expedia and was fully prepaid. Not happy. No off street parking although street was a dead end so not much traffic. Room stank of curry. Bathroom door had no catch, various plumbing fittings were loose. Bed was good and firm and towels were OK.
