2/10 Poor

No hot water and no communication
Booked the king room with spa tub and arrived looking forward to a nice hot shower/bath only to find that the hot water doesn't work. Called the motel manager and was told that the entire area hadn't had hot water for the last 10 days. I questioned as to why this wasn't relayed to guests beforehand and was told they informed guests upon arrival (a bit late to make alternate arrangements!). To add insult to injury, after calling about this, the only compensation that was offered was $10 refund and $25 credit for next booking. Room/furniture was also in poor condition and lacked simple items such as cutlery. Simply not good enough.
