“Avoid at all costs”
Reviewed March 9, 2008

This Motor Inn is the pits, avoid it like the plague. It is dirty, noisy and poorly maintained. The room smelt horrible.The white sheets on our beds were covered in black grease and semen stains and pubic hairs. The bed covers, the mattress cover also covered in semen stains and hairs ingrained into the weave. The beds were so old and hard that you were sleeping on springs. We asked for new sheets and they were no different from the first lot. This is disgusting. We had to then go and buy sheets and pllow cases so that we could sleep on top of the beds. The pillows were old and holey and covered in semen stains. The unit next to us had a dog in it that barked all night. The motel owners seemed no plus when we complained. The units have no telephones so that you cannot contact the owners. Smoking is allowed so the units constanly have smoke waffing into them. You can hear everything that goes on in the units beside you. There is no water pressure in the shower box, we had to shower elsewhere. There is constant vehicle noise from movements of cars and trucks and buses within the site. Our whole holiday was ruined from lack of sleep and the necessity to have to buy our own bedding. Avoid like the plague !!!!!!

AppleMotorInn, Manager at Apple Motor Inn, responded to this review, December 17, 2008
Since this review was written we have done alot of work to uplift the motel. Many of the rooms have been repainted and drapes/curtains replaced. Carpets and flooring replaced. Outside of the main motel repainted and general clean up of the grounds.
We are not perfect, but we do offer nice clean rooms that management and cleaning staff are always trying to improve.
We have done major work to make the Apple Motor Inn more inviting to guests and we appreciate feedback to say just how much we have achieved.
