Room heating was adequate but not sure...

The best part of Rotovegas Motel is the hot pools, which were well used and appreciated. But the rooms are very small and awkwardly laid out. They were not really as clean as they should have been, but the worst part was the noise! Either from traffic, the electrical switchboard(!) at 5.00am each morning or the neighbouring units. So sleep...
