We used one of the need it in a hurry websites to find this motel. It only got worse from then on.
We should hae researched the motel more BEFORE booking.
After booking realised the "cheaper" rate we booked was the same as regular the regular rate. Not happy!
We arrived at 4.00pm to be be advised we weren't expected until the next day. Not happy!
However the management did have a vacancy, no wonder, the place is a cross between a geriatric hospital and Fawlty Towers.
As others have commented, the place was previously a hospital and very little has changed.
I don't like being in hospital and I didn't like being here either.
We had a room facing the main road.
The room smelt musky and damp, in fact the whole place had a smell to it. Carpet is well worn, plastic shrubbery is covered in dust, there is no ambience to this place at all. No wonder there were few images of the facilities on their website.
We couldn't close the curtains and had the night lights from the street streaming in all night.
We had coffee making facilities, but no power to plug the jug into. Had to use the beside table to connect to a plug in the power board. Not sure what Occ Health & Safety issues are in place! There is no toaster to make toast for a BYO breakfast.
Television reception was intermittent - ranging from good, to pixelated, to loosing signal, to back to good. If you're watching with any intent don't bother!
Walls were dirty and marked, mirror frame in the bathroom had paint flaking off. There was mould/fungus in the shower recess, the shower caddy was rusting. The air-conditioner was connected to an extension cord plugged into the power board. The ceiling fan is turned on/off by pulling a shoelace.
How by any stretch of the imagination this place could be rated three stars is beyond me.
For me giving it any star rating is being generous.
If by chance you read this review before booking, consider yourself lucky.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS
