We stayed at this motel for 3 nights less than a week ago. There are six of us, four children under 12. Our motel unit had two towels. After asking for more, we found one had a black hair, another had a toenail clipping, another smelt as if it hadn't been washed at all, another smelt of faeces which they had tried to disguise with a strongly perfumed product. It was clear from the drying room downstairs and their towels, that they do not launder their towels commercially, or hygenically, and from the rough texture, and dark drying room downstairs it is clear they do not use dryers to dry them.
The bathroom was not clean, no heated towel rail or extract fan, dirt crusted in the corners of the spa bath/shower. The shower curtain smelt absolutely awful.
After the towels and the bathroom I was not convinced that the kitchen was properly clean.
It looks as if this motel was once a very lovely motel, the feather duvets were lovely, but the rest of it was run down, and cheaply run. I don't mind motels that have dated decor or lack heated towel rails, but they MUST be CLEAN, especially the towels!
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS MOTEL TO ANYONE UNTIL THEY FIX THEY TOWEL LAUNDERING AND THE CLEANING.
