There is nothing to rave about with this motel; however, there is also nothing to really complain about. It is very basic and serves a need. The bed I had was extremely comfortable and allowed for a good night`s sleep. I found the room and the shower clean. As I said, it serves a need.

Don't except room 302 on the top floor, it is right over the busy street so traffic noise all night, the room has no bedside tables and the bathroom door does not close, the shower head is held together by gaffer tape. There is only one of each cup, plate ,spoon etc. Also it is on the third floor, no...

Tiles, poorly painted white brick walls which were dirty, old metal beds, which were rusting, Tv and Wifi didn't work properly, toaster, handle ripped off. No matching chairs, chairs in room rusty old outdoor...

Budget motel providing less than budget value. An absolute disgrace. I occupied two rooms over a three night stay. Both were dirty. The second rooms bathroom had mould wherever you looked. Much worse than the first room but what made it horrible was the dribbles of mould, dirt or what ever it was flowing down the tiled walls in the...

Great place to overnight or for a couple of days. Secure parking (free) means you can take the car, and being on a main road it's easy to get to. Train station is only a short walk for access to the city. Room was clean and comfortable and bigger than I expected. And best of all - No traffic noise.
