“you get wot you pay for.....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

Most unimpressed with this place,,, it was cheap,, which was good, but the whole place was just tired, shower mouldy, electric jug didnt work, motelier (Asian) wouldnt answer his internal phone or answer the door until 9 am. Very limited in guest amenities, 4 tea bags, 4 coffee sachets, 4 sugar sachets, and no soaps, shampoos etc. There are lots of motels in that area, I suggest you check them out before booking. I wont even mention the trains, or motorway noise.

The office ladies were very nice.the room was clean but i found dust above the mirror and picture frames.our wifi was cut off after about 1 hour and did not turn back on in the morning. there was only enough milk and sugar for 2 decent cups of tea but there was 3 of us. the website states "sky channel" so i assumed there was sky - there was, free view but no sky, and there was a sky watch magazine.Lastly there were very nice lamps but the plug could not reach the wall sockets. i hope this helps everyone including siesta motel.

Stayed 2 nights with family. Got 2nd floor. A little hassle to carry luggage up small stairs. But friendly reception and good wifi. Quite a distance from Newmarket central if u wanna walk but easy road access. Good kitchen and efficient housekeeping. Nice and clean toilets. Not much of a view and can be a little noisy during peak highway hours. But quiet at night and nice breeze. Value for money.

Good location and within easy access to Newmarket and the city. Good value for money. Room very clean. Although the decor needs some updating, for the price it is clean and tidy. Plenty of parking. Staff very friendly and welcoming.

Although it was one of the cheapest places when booking. First night we found one light not working, fridge was loud, the first morning, the toaster sparked when stopping it, was dirty and disgusting. Sofa bed wasn't in good condition, the main bedroom curtains were so light you got all the car lights shining thru, there was graffiti behind the door, dust, screws and clothes price hanging tags under the bed. The blinds though-out the room were old and brittle, the ones in bathroom were MOULDY! Could hear the people upstairs running around, a window in the bathroom didn't have a lock, not good for room being by roadside.
The beds were made the first morning but not the second, same with vacuuming.
When telling the lady on check-out about the problems, all she could say was oh the cleaners, oh no, cleaners. I asked for a refund as it wasn't an acceptable room to have with our 17 month old, got offered a very low amount. Her husband came out and tried to have a go at me for asking for a refund.
