This motel is disgraceful and the owners should be ashamed. It is tired, run down and in need of repair. Simple things such as cleaning around the outside, the BBQ's which they brag about where filthy. No tissues were supplied....what is that about! Room was clean, but tatty, patched, carpet needs replacing. The so called WiFi was non existent, try...

This place is a bit run down and could use a great pressure clean on the outside with a bit of TLC it would be lovely. The room was clean and the place it self is very close to everything with great views. The restaurant in the place is closed and it looks OK so with a bit of effort...

Definitely the worst hotel I've stayed in. That's about it from a computer sized television to smelly carpets and broken towel rails. Doors in the hallway kicked in and in desperate need of repair. Do not even consider this one.

We found the hotel to be clean. It was however very poorly maintained. They are very cheep. For example wouldn't supply extra rolls of Toilet paper or any tissues or shampoo. They couldn't supply second key cards. The vent on the ceiling of our shower fell of right after my wife showered causing a mess and scaring her. I would...

Read the reviews. It is very dated, old plastic flowers and far too many creepy pictures in ornate guilted frames. Picture of a little girl in a white nightgown above our bed. You almost expect to see her in the hallway with dark circles under her eyes. The carpets are filthy and stained. Sheets and bedding was clean but not...
