Room was clean although the mattress needed to be replaced it really sloped to the middle. Our room was close to the road so if your a light sleeper ensure you book a room out the back. Microwave, plates etc all in room which lets you enjoy a takeaway.

A mistake, had at least 6 Asian hookers working out of this motel. Men coming and going until late in the night, the one beside me had maybe 6 + visitors for the night and she was not very pretty. My advice is give it a miss. Plenty of better motels in town I hope!
