Went with family and a bit worried re all negative reviews (have been on I Drive twice before). Basically the motel needs a serious facelift, and if that happens then this is a serious motel in ideal place on I drive.
Wifi avaliable in lobby and bar, rooms adequate size for upto family of 4 and only 2 storoes set round small but adequate pool. As mentioned ideal to walk along I drive and to wet and wild (across the road) and Universal only 15 minute walk so save $15 parking.
Staff all friendly (apart from miseable one one on breakfast - shes the thin one not the happy older one) Re the breakfast it is ok but spoiled by the ones who leave the area a mess and not throw their trash into bins!! Only takes a second and they have to walk past them.
To say there is negative reviews all I can say is that they were turning folks away as they were full.
As mentioned before I have been to area before and if this motel gets a facelift will definately go back.
