Positive Reviews

Clean and spacious accommodation

While guests do point out some examples of poor maintenance, the accommodation here typically makes a good impression. The studios and apartments are consistently described as clean. Plus, even those guests in a larger group have found the accommodation reasonably spacious.

Convenient location

For many guests, the location of the motel has proved to be one of the most appealing features. The proximity of the airport is an obvious highlight although guests also mention that there is a decent choice of stores and restaurants within a short drive.

Friendly service from staff

Guests have rated the standard of service here highly, often describing the staff and management as friendly and welcoming. Those guests who made use of the motel’s facilities and services found these easily accessible and well organised.

Negative Reviews

Motel is quite dated

Although clean and reasonably comfortable, guests have found this motel rather dated. There are also some examples of poor maintenance although, to be fair, these are typically minor. Those reported include broken plug sockets and frayed carpets.

Wi-Fi may disappoint

The quality of the Wi-Fi here has often proved to be a disappointment to guests. The signal is said to be intermittent, so guests find the connection is prone to dropping out. Those guests who did get online found the connection fairly slow.

Breakfast could be improved

Being able to have breakfast on-site is convenient but guests have found the quality does not live up to the price. It’s likely that there are better dining options in the area. Indeed, guests have often chosen to visit a nearby cafe.
