Superficially, it's a nice place.
For a motel to greet me with a sign "if items are removed ... immediate police action" is off-putting. But for the motel owners to try and safe money by remove lightbulbs from the bedside lights so they can't get stolen is crass.
In addition, the rooms are small: if you sit up in bed, you look at the bonnet of your car 3 meters away through the verandah door. There are no windows, just one huge door, which makes you feel you're sitting in a gold-fish bowl, visible to all and sundry from the car park. For privacy, there are only black-out curtains - ie no natural light at all.
The walls are too thin, you can hear people laugh next door. Coffee cups are plastic, fridge is half-size, the water tap is the wrong size so you can't fill the kettle properly ... it's just irritating and unpleasant all around.
