Walked into the room and couldn’t breathe as I am asthmatic, room is a non smoking room but they allowed smoking outside and the outside is covered so smoke just blew back into the room Also the curtains looked like they haven’t been washed in years and had rat or ant droppings on the basin And what looked like a flee in the shower So had to check straight back out and try and find other accommodation

It was adequate for our requirements and we would recommend it as good reasonably-priced accommodation. However, our unit was upstairs and opposite a unit where the people were smokers. The motel's policy of allowing people to smoke outside their units meant their smoke entered our unit through gaps around the door; normal gaps that would not have been a problem under any other circumstances.

Very tired and run down. Non working fridge with door broken. Lights and fan in bathroom not working. VERY disappointing. Have stayed here many times over the last 20. This room really was disappointing.
