The motel room is an average motel room. I think we were perhaps unlucky with our particular room though. The first night we were awake until 4am due to the creaking in the bed upstairs. Constantly. For 2 hours. And it wasn't even 'that' type of creaking, it just sounded like somebody jumping as fast as they could on it. Either that, or somebody's got stamina.
In another room, there was the lovely sound of a TV blaring until perhaps 5am, and either the inhabitants were hard of hearing or the walls are so hollow that even I could hear the 2am news updates, which were very informative. To add an extra bit of fun, we then had another group of people in the place with music blasting out and running up and down the stairs when they came back drunk. They did sing very nicely though.
This was on a Thursday night. It would have been more acceptable in a weekend I guess. Friday was of a similar vein, minus the drunks singing but TV noise ran until 6am this time. The telltale beer cans left on the tables outside give you a clue as to why it's so noisy here.
Aside from this, the wireless Internet is expensive and there was a cigarette burn in a pillowcase. The towels are also threadbare.
If you're wanting a place to crash after a night out, this is probably a good place for you. If you're getting up at 6am for a flight, don't bother.
