Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

No working light in the bathroom. Bathroom window broken. Toilet cistern needed fixing as was constantly filling up. TV remote dead. Some/most of the fixtures had seen better days. Staff friendly enough though.

  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness

The property itself is very tired. The staff on check in were very friendly. I tried numerous times to contact the motel beforehand and did find this very difficult. They didn't respond to an Expedia message or an email. The room did need a deep clean and new carpets, they were threadbare and even missing in places. All that aside the bed was super comfortable and the area was quiet

  • Disliked: Cleanliness

When getting into the room, it was dirty I asked to be moved to another room where the bedding was also dirty, when asked to change they just removed. In the end me and my son made other arrangements to sleep at a different location

Fraud companys

I have arrived at this hotel but they invoke reasons like they are overbooked and they are not able to offer me an accommodation, but now when I am trying to get my money back they are refusing to pay it and they are trying to pass the responsibility to the platform that I use it to pay which is Hotels.com. I am convinced now that both parties are frauding people and I will go further with this case because innocent people have to suffer.
