“Beautiful Motel, Beautiful rooms but Not Clean! Full of cockroaches”
Reviewed 7 December 2011

There are lots of cockroaches in rooms, bathrooms and kitchenette of this beautiful motel! Parking space is good. Rooms are spacious with nice balcony. However, the management of this motel is rude and not welcoming. No matter if guest's reach late, management should understand that delay in checking In by guests happen for reasons, they should make there guests feel comfortable no matter if they reach late, the guests might be tired and feeling out of place in New Country after a long and hectic journey.

JohnDavison, Owner at Marlin Court Motel, responded to this review, 16 December 2011
I have checked our bookings and these guests did stay with us back in February.
We have no record of any problem at the time and we did actually give them a free upgrade.
Why would it take a "senior contributor" 10 months to write this?
This is hardly fair on us Trip Advisor, how about removing it???

Great spot for a relaxing holiday, large bright clean apartment with outdoor area. Comfortable bed and no street noise. Owners very informative about the local activities.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower level for easier access
