The motel is located near a busy road. Although I understand there are a number of renovated rooms, unfortunately the room we had was not one of those. It had worn 80s decor, was cramped and there was mould in the shower, so much so that we didn't dare use it for fear of getting a fungal disease. It was also noisy, we could hear comings and goings, plumbing noises, a noisy old heater and the gym above. We were scheduled to stay three nights but left after two. Some websites show lovely pictures of the renovated deluxe rooms. Standard downstairs rooms are nothing like those. We definitely will never return.
