It's Tanzania, it's Africa, so when the water isn't warm, the lights go out, and the water doesn't work at all, consider it part of the experience. What I loved about the Transit Motel was that the staff tried very hard to get the water to warm up (it didn't) but they also made sure I got my wonderful breakfast (I had forgotten there was a free one), and when the power and water were both off, I went for a nap, during which all was restored. Their good humor, and willingness to work with me made it turn out just fine. I found the rooms very clean, although you MUST wear the flip flops in the shower or your floor will have dirty footprints everywhere. Also if you pull the drapes open next to the alley and you are in your altogether, don't be surprised if you startle some worker like I did, because there is NO privacy. Stay dressed or keep the drapes closed. The lights are dim but that's the price you pay.
Plenty of plugs, thank you very much, for recharging. It's a twelve minute walk to the airport if you're not carrying much. The bathroom light is very dim, too. So bring a flashlight.
