Upon arriving at the motel it looked very appealing and the same can be said inside. We entered the motel and were greeted by Sunan who was very friendly and booked us a room for a 1 night stay in the Admiral Suite with a balcony for $109. The room was modern and spacious with the BIGGEST flat screen TV we had seen this side of Currys! (equivalent Aussie electrical appliance store). There was a sofa in the room along with a coffee table, and we had a small kitchenette with a microwave. A/c was provided too. The bathroom was a decent size with a shaving kit, dental kit, soaps etc. provided for guests. We had two large suitcases with us which were easily stored on the fixed suitcase rack provided. Our second case could be stored in the space beneath it.
We nipped out for a takeaway, a good 10 mins drive to town, however we were able to eat it at the table and chairs provided in the room. We did notice a few ants around the kitchen area, which we promptly disposed of! We are unsure if there was an ant station in the room as we didn’t see one.
Due to another day of lengthy travelling we retired to bed shortly after – and WHAT a bed! Bar our own, this was the best bed we had slept in during our 3 week journey South! : ) We had a fantastic night’s sleep and bathroom trips in the night were a doddle due to the pretty stained glass window in the bathroom – no need to turn any lights on, but not strong light which affected our sleep!
As we had a few electrical items with us due to us travelling we needed a couple of plug sockets for charging our items, i.e. mobile phones, sat nav, mp3 players. We ended up unplugging lamps and the alarm clock to do so, at least a dual socket would be beneficial for guests.
Upon leaving my boyfriend drew back the curtains to see some ‘muck’ inside the curtain rail, along with a dead spider. Bit yucky, but nothing housekeeping couldn’t sort out in a flash! Also the screen door was ripped slightly. Again, nothing major.
Bottom line? A good value motel for the price! Stay again? Yes, definitely! : )
