You get what you pay for here. A tired looking yet adequate roomy place. Needs attention to mouldy ceilings in bathroom ( a ventiation catch on window would help). The microwave had been missed in cleaning as was a little off putting with smelly spills. ,Smoke from neighbours smoking outside units does drift in.

First thing we did when we got in was put the jug on and make a cuppa. The first cup I picked up hadnt been washed from the last person that used it. The room was not clean like I expect in any motel. All very superficial bench wiped etc. Glad we only booked one night.

Shabby and in need of maintenance in and out. Bathroom mouldy, place dusty, lack of kitchen utensils (1 small pot, no bowls), wallpaper flapping, beds comfy enough, shower good pressure. Pool area used to confine owners (or a guests) dog during day not ideal.

“Some family units don't have separate bedrooms, pay to check first. One large area for 6 is a bit off.”
