The hotel is old but the effort put into maintaining and cleaning the hotel is excellent. The receptionist, a young male, was outstanding. Gave us all the information that we needed and was very polite. The pool which is inside has been well looked after.
Breakfast was above average compared to other hotels visited ie it was very good.
Local Chinese buffet was great value and had the best mixed vegetables.

Room Tip: Go to local chinese buffet.

We try to stay at this hotel for a few reasons, its a good half way point, it has usually quiet rooms and a nice breakfast. The pool area is great and they have a adults hot tub. It was closed though so they allowed us to sit in the regular hot tub after closing for a few minutes to soak the bones, a nice touch.

Was not impressed first room we went into had not been cleaned. The second room they put us in was not the cleanest. There was soap scum around the shower. Carpets needed a good wash. was not impressed with the cleanliness of the room. The pool was awesome and clean.

This motel is old and dated. It is being upgraded. We were first put in a room in which the air conditioner was uncontrollable. After some time and extensive negotiation, we were relocated to another room that was yet to be upgraded but was adequate; however, the room opened on to the indoor pool area that was both humid and very noisy. The staff was somewhat helpful.

This is a dated hotel that need lots of updating. Minimal room service, toilet kept sticking, rugs have seen better days, soap dispensers were empty, the bed was comfortable and the hot tub and pool were nice.
