Fine rooms with facilities in good working condition. Good wifi network. But restaurant meals not great, and the management needs to get good chef to improve on the outcome from their kitchen. The meal I had the last time we stayed in there about 8 weeks ago was a disaster.

Thanks for your kind words and feedback. I wish I knew what meals you ordered as we suspect this may have been an isolated incident. Nevertheless management will keep a closer eye on the quality of the meals and we will not hesitate to bring in new cooks or Chef if need be. Thanks again for your feedback.

The workers were very nice. Everything was in order. The rooms are clean, especially the toilet. Not to forget the food was very nice, especially the Fish Pepper soup. And the location is excellent you can easily catch a bus to any destination you are going or just ride back to the airport.

I only stood over one night because I usually stay close to the airport a day early before I leave Nigeria, but the staff are very polite in speaking and not the usual ghetto talk I receive from other hotels seems very educated staff, the only problem I had was that the AC unit had a funky smell like mildew...

The motel met my needs for just the one day I was passing through. However there is need for them to improve or upgrade their social services like the internet and television. My previous visits were much better than this last one. They did apologize for the problem. They probably need new equipment.
