4/10 Fair

My expectations were low as it was cheap. We booked two nights but left early as my partner was unhappy with the property. There was a man smoking at the front in the room next door and that wafted under our door. There was a noisy occupant at night. The bed was comfortable and the shower pressure good. There were very few power outlets. The accomodation is dated and in need of some TLC and an update to make it more comfortable. We won't be returning

2/10 Poor

The complex and rooms are exactly as they were when built. Assume 60’s or 70’s. Absolutely no frills but did have a clean comfy bed. Vastly overpriced for whats provided.

8/10 Very good

Great showers, plenty of room for trucks, it’s an old motel, but it works. Only down side is the price, for what it is you can get better for the same price or even a bit less.
