This motel is old and shabby - badly in need of bringing up to date.
Tried to check in early and were told we could - but then the room was not ready when we arrived.
Asked for an iron - was presented with an ancient iron with a dirty sole plate and an ironing board that collapsed and could not be made to stay up.
The double bed was pushed hard against a wall, which made it difficult for the person near the wall to get in and out.
The walls are not noise proof.
All facilities basic - the table might have been re-made from a rubbish collection.
HOWEVER - the one saving grace - comfortable bed and clean sheets (horrible smelly towels and tea-towels though). And it's close to bus route, shops, airport, so you can leave it for the day.
Wi-fi exists but impossibly slow.
Don't know how it got a star rating! (Not all that cheap, either.)
