My friend and I had not booked a hotel for our weekend in Portugal. First night we spent in the car that we rented, but second night, as we wanted to take a shower and sleep properly before our early morning flight back to London, we decided to just get a motel room. This was the first one that we found. We were on a highway and saw a sign that said "Hotel 2KM", so we followed the sign and arrived to this place.
When we went in, there was a price list. The cheapest price for a twin room was 50euros, but as we didn't want to have breakfast, internet, or a view, the receptionist said we can have it for 40euros. We were allocated room number 115, which had a balcony facing the sea. Room itself gave off a good first impression, it was clean and cute, but when we opened the drawers, we could see that the furniture was quite old, and also the bathroom shower and bath was quite old as well. The only modern thing there was in the room was the TV, flat screen, but it only had a few channels (no more than 10) and they were all in Portuguese.
The shower was quite confusing, at some point without knowing it, I turned the water off and the receptionist had to come and help me, but she was very nice. After taking a shower I called to ask if thee was supposed to be a hair dryer in the room, the receptionist said that it is not always provided, but she has one downstairs, so she can bring it to me.
Room had an A/C system installed, but for some reason, it never got warm enough. It was like 20-21 degrees, but I wish it would have gotten warmer.
All together, the room was basic, kind of old, but ok for a one night stay, and the receptionist was excellent!
