    Response from john B, Owner at Bamboo Motor InnResponded 30 May 2017

    Sincerely regret the issue with the hot water. We have checked the system and found the problem stemmed from a faulty timer switch that controls the system in that section of the motel. I will contact you to offer compensation.

    We stayed here overnight, the manager was very helpful and the motel is in a convenient location. There are plenty of eating places within walking distance. The room was comfortable and clean. I would recommend this motel.

    3-4* motel; facilities are spotless and tidy. John the manager was extremely helpful. There is an industrial fan at the back of room 9 which switches off overnight, so keep your bathroom door shut for a quieter time.More
