This motel has one new side and one very old run down side. When you book they show photos of the new side!! My room was absolutely disgusting and dirty i was contemplating sleeping in my car! As soon as you opened the door the room smelt like curry with a mix of cigarette smoke, The carpet is so old it is pulling away from the floor and creasing in places, there is cobwebs everywhere on the roof, there is marks everywhere on the walls, the bed is hard as a rock, Walls are paper thin so you hear neighbours, There is a flat fire alarm beep going off every minute and i read in reviews this was happening 3 months ago!! ….. The list goes on, my advise do not stay here it is not worth your money whatsoever!!

Although room is modern, the shower had mould all through the grout and on the floor, the fridge had been turned off so when we went to use it for our food it had a terrible smell in it. The back of the unit is covered in rubbish which is a breeding ground for rats. Outside the front of the units I noticed there were smoke butts all in the gardens, as they have not provided ash trays for smokers. Seriously I’m not rascist, but these 3 hotels are run by Indians, but come on guys your need to care for our country, and keep it green and clean. 😡😡 Just a suggestion to the owners, spray some bleach on the mould, no scrubbing is required, it’ll disappear within minutes, and put the large pieces of rubbish in the recycle bin, and if your turning thie fridges off, leave them slightly open so fresh air gets in them so they don’t reek.

Upon arrival big carpet stains and smelt like cat urine. Dark and damp looking conditions. The oven was unclean. I do not recommend this motel. The wifi did to work. The staff listened but did nothing to resolve the situation. Overall a big thumbs down. I hope the staff management read this review and do something to improve the situation for the sake of their customers.

Spent 3 nights and wished we hadn’t. Paid $249 each night for a 2-bdrm apartment and services well below par. The internet didn’t work in our room and Indian mangers/staff dithered around. The oven was disgusting so we could not heat up a pizza. Bugs in bed and carpet smelt. We only chose the place because it was convenient to family living nearby. We will NOT be returning!

Arrived to a room with carpet stains and limited/no wifi. Service was poor and were unable to fix the wifi (Room 20). Spent 3 nights here and was not satisfied at all, much rather sleep outside to be honest.
