It was in a great location for our need. Also had great eating places right there alongside it. The room was very clean and comfortable with good heat pump. It is an older establishment. We did have a problem with lock on door to courtyard otherwise meet our needs.

Our shower was unusable (reception seemed unfazed by this news), no plug for basin, toilet seat loose / wobbly, hole in the bathroom door - it's the little things that count...?

The motel is well appointed on a major road, so is easy to find. However, the pool & playground are shared with several eateries, making it a busy place. The sound proofing in the part of the building we were in wasn’t that good. We could overhear conversations in the rooms around us.

Bad experience, room we were in had windows next to outside chiller with people going in and out alot all the time during the night, also same area outside window they had place where they emptied their empty bottles. Alot of excess noice from restaurant in the complex made it not such a good experience staying here. Cleaners need to thorough check, found old used soap in soap holder in shower.Would suggest possibly request accommodation along eastern wing of motel. It was a shame as used to live up on North Shore, and had great memories of the Poe.
