“Dirty, dirty, dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2011

The motel was in a good location as it was in walking distance of the central city. The reception staff were friendly, however having their pets in the front office was a bit off, especially when the cat farted and smelt the place out.
Our room was very dated, but we knew that when we booked in so it wasn't a surprise. It was a surprise though to find we had to slept in single beds, it had two rooms and there were four single beds which was a big weird.
The room was dirty, we found rubbish from what looked like a party underneath one of the beds, cans and wrappers and dead bugs everywhere. Yuck!

I am truely sorry that you found your unit dirty-no excuse but it was an extremely busy week-end(world cup rugby) and your unit obviously missed vaccuming. The room is set up for groups of 4 individuals. We have only owned the motel for 6 months and are trying hard to upgrade and refurbish the units. And hey kittens are like babies you dont always know what they're going to do
