Stayed one night in a "deluxe studio". Room is probably good for one or two persons with only one bed, but in the twin configuration we needed was quite cramped with difficulty finding somewhere to put suitcases so we didn't trip over them. Kitchen space was good, and room was clean. Beds were clean and comfortable. Shower and toilet both very cramped (except vertically, the shape of the building made them great for giraffes), be careful when using the hand basin not to bang your head on the small shelf above. The motel was obviously built before the nearby road became so busy, and while the building of a high wall along the road, and the addition of a virtual extra wall on the rooms cuts out the noise adequately, the idea of being able to sit outside or leave a window open is laughable.
If you book at this motel, make sure you either print off, or have the location firmly set in your mind because Westminster Ave is a very odd shape and if you start at the wrong end, it's easy to lose track of.
