Motel Six

Pros: Handy location
Cons: The motel is quite tired and needs modernising. The beds are small and uncomfortable. The room needs air conditioning or at least a fan.
Location: Good location, close to the CBD
Good location being close to the CBD. The motel is a bit run down and needs modernising. Room lacks air conditioning or at least a fan. Opening windows at night is not an option due to noise. Can hear other visitors in the up stair rooms. Very noisey.

Cleanest motel EVER

Well priced and so well presented. I’ve never seen a shower so clean it was like a mirror. The staff were lovely and I liked the way the owner showed us to our room and did a final check to make sure it was perfect! Would highly recommend
