“Thumbs down :(”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2011

If you are thinking of stopping off at Leigh and you want a reasonable standard room, unfortunately you will be hugely disappointed.! A studio room costs $120 which has a double or queen bed in it, you have a small table with kithen facilities and bathroom. When I opened the fridge the seals were covered in mould!

The concrete walls are painted white. The decor is something from the 1960's and all the sheets/towels were old & fraying. It looks like they had been there for 10yrs or more!! The shower room is small and has a horrible aluminum shower tray and the shower itself is so poor you can hardly wash your hair.

The only positive thing was the service, the lady at the front desk was helpful and friendly. She greeted us with a lovely smile. However, to stay here it should cost around $70 per night not $120. To be honest I feel the whole motel needs to be bulldozed and re-built. I hate to give negative recommendations & most probably the owners can not afford to re-decorate the motel etc... in hindsight, I should have looked at the rooms before we committed to staying there.
