    The room was ok and clean, but the motel is located next to a busy street and railway. The noise was terrible, and what was even worse, with every car or train passing our bed was vibrating- we couldn't sleep at all.More

    Hello, I would like to book a room for myself, my husband and our 2 daughters through TripAdvisor. Our daughters are 2 years old and 6 months old when we arrive there. I would like to ask if there will be a charge for our children if they will not require extra bedding? Can I make the booking under 2 adults for 1 room if they won't require extra bedding?
