Very pleased. On arrival at 830 pm was greeted by a cheerful gentleman. He made check in very quick and easy. Happy that my requests for a private entrance room got me the furtherest room from the road entrance and other patrons. Road noise hardly noticeable. Room is spotless clean. Plenty of kitchen ware, microwave, linens, pillows however only the...

Where do I start ! The owner was very rude upon arrival which should have set the alarm bells off. Got to our room which was dirty with stains/hand marks on the wall, dishwasher didn't work, main lights in bathroom didn't work, horrible traffic noise ! Would not recommend !

Obviously, nothing anyone could say or do would make this unhappy person happy. Neither my husband nor I would be rude to a guest checking in unless the guest was particularly aggressive to start with, even then we would still do our best to be polite. The dishwashers have been mistreated numerous times by guests and the cost of keeping...

I booked this motel before reading all the negative reviews on Trip Advisor and despaired. However, I have no complaints at all after our overnight stay. The lady in reception was friendly and helpful. The room was modern and clean, if not a bit sparse. This was preferable for us, as we have a toddler who is adept at breaking...

Hi Judy and Bruce, Thank you so much for your great review, it can be a bit tough when the only one's that respond on TripAdvisor are the unhappy people. We do get good feedback as people are leaving and we have a lot coming back time after time. Again thank you for the positive comments. Kind Regards Karyn and...

Not happy customer here. Uncleaned shower box. The spa bath still had dirty ring around it. Fridge still had food stains on shelves. The headboard and bedside tables had thick dust left on them. I have used this motel in past no problems.

Worst stay ever! Rude staff, party going on outside rooms on balcony. Broken TV, ditty rooms. When most residents complained the next morning the staff didn't care. Awful! I would strongly suggest you find another motel. The new owners have no interest in customer service or maintaining the property.

The reception was nice enough, I was told there was only a two bedroom apartment left available after enquiringly for standard studio, therefore could get a discount $175 from $215, if I just use 1 room. I was surprised on arrival and departure the car park was only 1/2 full. Upon arrival the room looked modern and relatively clean, but...

Unbelievable that we even considered staying here again, but it was convenient. Unbelievable that the owners haven't done anything to improve the place. This could be an outstanding motel with care and attention but obviously no one cares.
