What could anyone possibly say in a positive review of this place. It’s disgustingly smelly of tobacco smoke, dope, weed & an array of other smells. The carpet is stained, but the cockroaches seemed friendly. The clientele who come & go at all hours, doing who knows what - left us feeling nervous (scared) to be there, so we left early. If we’d known it wasn’t in a nice part of town we never would have stayed there & the desk person could have made us aware.

It was like the staff were doing us a favour. The room smelled of cigarette smoke, the bathroom wasn't very clean and the shower set up was ridiculous. One of the powerpoints was getting ready to come off the wall. The bed was ok but that was it. Way overpriced for what it is. I've seen better rooms in dodgy pubs. Stay away.

We stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night. As soon as I walked into the foyer and saw a crabby elderly woman who looked unhappy to see us, I knew it was a wrong choice. No lifts, we had the top floor, 2nd storey. As soon as we opened the door, I was transported to the 1960’s. Everything was so outdated. I will admit the room was very clean, and the cleaning girl was very friendly. There are a lot of dodgy looking men walking around the complex, or standing on the verandah smoking, and NON STOP police presence. The walls are paper thin, the Friday night, the man next door must’ve been on his phone all night till 4am, we could hear everything. Then on Saturday night, at 7pm, if we made a slight noise, he would bang on the wall for us to be quiet. At 2am Saturday morning, we were woken to the sound of smashing glass, sounded to me like a car window. Next minute, in the car park where we park our car, a fight broke out, and a woman shouted that her car window was smashed. The language and noise was atrocious. I looked out the window to see a woman on top of a car, and the car doing burnouts trying to fling the woman off! The next minute she was flung to the ground. They were all under the influence of drugs. The noise kept us awake, and we were too fearful to leave our room as there were lots of undesirables hanging around the stairwells. The motel is very run down, and in need of desperate repair. The owner has to decide if she wants it as a drug drop in centre or an actual motel. I am just glad we had no children with us, as it was not a pleasant place to stay. In hindsight, we should not have stayed there at all. I have learnt a lesson, read Trip Advisor reviews first!!!!

Where to start 1. The whole venue had a very strong smell of pot and cigarette 2. The room was outdated needs a major renovations still stuck in the 60's 3. The shower window was a clear glass window not a bathroom frosted glass and a security camera outside the window that looks to be looking into the shower
