Plus side:Clean and tidy studio room. Well enough equipped. Easy walk into town.Friendly greeting with easy check in/out. Minus side: Bed was hard, not comfy, feels wornout. Place is tired looking, dirty marks on door curtain. Shower curtain not hygenic. Room really needs a complete refurb. A good motel for easy stay, however, not the best value given their prices.
