4/10 Fair

If you are given room #27 refuse it!
The owner and daughter were very nice at check in. I did mention we had driven from Townsville and so worn out and ready for a nice rest, and that is why I wonder why we were put in the only room right next to A1 highway, with double windows that face that road. The road noise made it impossible to sleep. We did manage to get in a couple of hours rest as the traffic dwindled in the very early morning hours. Honestly, that room should not be rented out...never stay in room #27. I feel that the rest of the motel would be very presentable, clean, comfortable bed, a little outdated, but the price reflects that. We had requested a room with a kitchenette but would have forgone that if we had realised we would have to deal with the road noise. I am sure I would have more than happy with our stay otherwise. I just hope #28 was already occupied and not just left empty. It would have definitely been quieter.
