Our tv had a burn mark on the screen which spoilt the viewing however we were offered another room but as we had already unpacked and only staying one night we declined.

My daughter is staying just up the hill and it was a nice location, close to where she is. To be honest it was the best/cleanest looking motel out of the few I looked through!
