This dump really, really needs to be razed to the ground!
Heating didn't work, wifi didn't work, tv didn't work ... but apart from that, everything was crap.
Howver, the fridged worked ... BINGO, but ... rattled and hummed like hell and consequently got turned off promptly until my departure.
The owner, surely a distant relative of Basil Fawlty, well, er ... really should pursue another career! Yesterday!
He showed me where the antenna was located in his car park. I drove to it & still got no signal. He told me, "These laptops & their micky mouse wifi cards" or such like rubbish.
He got the tv working. Nothing like a bit of brute force eh! He had to re-tune the satellite box because "...those things keep going around the Earth!" Really! I suggested that manufacturers should be made aware of that.
The heating, well talk about Heath-Robinson. After he turned one knob [installed many years ago] to 'heat' & then turned a very, very sloppy dial [also installed eons ago] to 'max' & then cranked the stat up from his office eventually the heat arrived.
I was told, "You're not the first to have these little hiccups." Well mate ... I probably won't be the last.
The decor is terrible. No coordination whatsoever. Looks like it's been thrown together by a bloke with no idea!
The motel allows animals judging by the blonde dog hair on my carpet.
My bathroom, unlike other reviews wasn't too bad. It had just been repainted ... including the towel rail & other bathroom furniture! Bodge job or what! The shower was actually very efficient, however, this does not really warrant any extra stars but ... what a relief!
I did have visions of Norman Bate's hotel when I took my shower though.
The hot water in the wash basin took a little while to come through.
Why doesn't an individual have a stab and make a proper hotel in this town, or dare I say it, a Super 8, National 9 or Motel 6 or suchlike do it. There's money to be made here. Or ... are there just enough desperate & weary travellers to keep this type of outfit going?
