The on-site pool is found to be modern and kept in a good condition. Guests appreciate being able to cool down on a hot day and typically describe the pool as clean.

Negative Reviews

Maintenance issues visible throughout

A lack of maintenance is a clear problem at this motel. Guests describe problems as being apparent in both the rooms and shared areas of the property and tend to be of the opinion that the building looks run down throughout.

Dated and dirty rooms can disappoint

The decor and furnishings in the guest rooms appear so old and dated that it seems likely that the accommodation has never been refitted. Additional disappointment often comes in the form of poor cleanliness.

Long-term residents

Visitors feel that some of the other guests staying at the motel are long-term residents, further explaining that these folk can act in a way that is quite intimidating.
