We booked this motel as we wanted something cheaper than the hotels on the beachfront. We knew that it was a cheaper type motel and our expectations were set accordingly. We got there and got into the office to check in... it smelt really bad and the guy behind the counter (the owner i suspect) was not that friendly and had really bad English which made the check in process tedious. We then went to our room and it smelt musty like if it had not been aerated for months. We had a small kitchen as we wanted to cook some meals while there. We opened the kitchen cupboards and found 2 plates, 2 forks, 2 knives and 2 bowls of different sizes. There was no dishwashing liquid so who knows how we were meant to clean our dirty dishes and who knows if they were clean in the first place as the previous customer would have had the same problem.
The beds seemed clean and we slept well on them. The air con was fairly old and noisy but this didn't disturb us.
Breakfast was included in the price as stated on the booking website... well, i don't call this a breakfast. It was made up of packaged danish pastry (very average) and a coffee. There was no room to have breakfast in. In other words, don't tell your customers you'll get breakfast if it consists of 1 very average item
All in all, not a great experience and there are far better motels for the same price.
