I stayed here under another persons recommendation because I was traveling to Napier with my dog. I arrived late at night and was disappointed from the moment I entered the room. The motel is a block of old joined state flats with concrete walls between each room. It was cold and there was only a single oil heater and no electric blankets. The blanket on the bed smelled like dog, the room had not been vacuumed in who-knows how long, the bathroom was growing mold in every corner and most walls, there was something splattered on the bathroom wall that resembled blood. The shower water pressure was non-existent and the tv had regular tv channels, no sky at all. The curtains in the ranch slider were a bunch of recycled curtains that didn't quite cover the space leaving gaps between each curtain. We had asked for two beds and one had a single pillow no thicker than a phone book.
Upon waking we couldn't get over the fact that simple cleaning had not been done so called around and found a much cleaner motel to stay at. We told the cleaner (who came only to give us fresh towels, not to clean, before we had even left the room for the day) that we were leaving and why, and she spoke to the Manager. He told her not to charge us seen as we were not happy. I tried to pay anyway but she insisted so we left. I almost didn't put this review up but I don't want others booking the motel without first knowing what they are booking. Photos will be attached.
