Well, I decided to give this place a try on my most recent trip. I came away with mixed feelings (as usual). Pro: The room is a little larger than some other budget places I've stayed. It seemed reasonably clean, albeit a little dusty here and there (possibly due to the practice of leaving the windows cracked open for circulation.).... More

We stayed at Motel America for one night in April 2013. Good value for money. Bit noisy from guests in carpark, but clean and comfortable. Staffed 24/7. Kitchenette + fridge. Didn’t use air-con. Good wifi connection and shower.

Not especially nice, not horrible either. Reasonably comfortable. A fairly short walk to the main tourist area with a selection of restaurants. I felt safe at the motel and safe walking back and forth to the restaurants. If you're just passing through, this isn't a bad place to crash for a night.

Internet here was awful. Was here for 2 weeks and not enough was done to fix it. Owner of the hotel dismissed the problem and ignored my report, and instead he raised his voice and argued with me and we were nearly shouting when I reported the problem to him. Don't bother going here. It's too long a walk from... More

Short two block walk to "down-town". Cheap , quiet compared to the hotel's down-town. Having a stove and refridgerater was nice. (made our own breakfast and coffee) No real "view" but very clean. You can go by most of the positive reviews here...I just added some more photo's.

We were first shown room 16 with a kitchen and breakfast bar. The bed was really hard and the room cold. We ended up in room 3 which was closer to the office, warmer, had good wifi and a bigger kitchen with a round table, tv and better all round. The owners gave us some pots and pans to use... More
