8/10 Very good

Not what it used to be
This motel changed hands towards the end of 2022. The website still advertises full breakfast available. There is NO breakfast! Maintanence is slipping - last couple of times I have stayed at least one light not working in bedroom. They are using the previous family owners notices/ welcome/website literature etc. By doing this & not putting the new names of the owners on anything seems dishonest to me. Hoping they raise to the previous owners high standards soon.

4/10 Fair

They were flexible and let us check in a couple of hours early. But this is where the good new ends. How can anyone give this property 8/10 is incomprehensible. It’s old and decrepit, the shower is weak and runs hot and cold, the carpet and chairs are all stained, so was the hand towel which looked like it hadn’t been washed, the room was musty. I know it’s a budget motel and I’ve stayed in my share of these but this one is amongst the bottom ranked.
