Arrived at 1900 hrs to find our room had not been cleaned from the previous occupants. Carpets were filthy and room looked grotty and in need of refurbishment. For $120 I expected more!!
We moved to another motel down the road- Thankgoodness

I know 65 Aus dollars is cheap for a room, but I expected the basics; like clean sheets, not a bed full of grit that felt as if someone had slept in it with their shoes on. That's not to mention the ants and the manky broken shower unit. Alarm bells should have rung when another guest in front of us at reception had to replace his own lightbulb because his room was in darkness. Avoid. Spend a few bucks more and stay at the Fig Tree a few doors up the road.
