4/10 Fair

Upon arrival before 2pm the check in had already closed. We retrieved our key from a safe but sadly the room was extremely unclean. We left our keys and went to another place.

6/10 Good

The TV remote was broken and didn't work correctly. No one at reception for late check-in had to give my credit card details to online reception, I hate that, that's why I use Paypal.

2/10 Poor

The whole motel needs a facelift. The carpets need to be replaced, the air-con needs to be updated, the lights need to be checked every time a client leaves to make sure they work and the rooms need to be serviced every day.
