The room that I was in was very dated with non-matching carpet patches. However, it was pretty clean and the facilities were good. Excellent secutiy, free undercover parking, a toaster and a microwave (unfortunatley no instructions on how to use). The fridge was of a good size, but the freezer compartment didn't work.There was an unusual array of toiletries including...

Super clean rooms, tiled throughout and very airy. The guest amenities cater for the forgetful. Pleasant relaxed staff & very accomodating in a non pretentious environment. The rooms provide good privacy from the outside world. Some of the best Zzzzzz's I've ever caught were at the Marco Polo.

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...

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...

Dear Mark M, We are extremely disappointed to hear your review. We are known to our guests as a clean motel, as all rooms are serviced regularly by our housekeeping staff. Rooms occupied by guests for several nights are cleaned thoroughly unless the guest indicates that they would not like to be disturbed. Our motel has a thorough housekeeping procedure...
