My family and I stayed here for a night in July and whilst it was a keen price for 4 of us, I expect more, even at a budget hotel/motel.
The rooms were very tired and need refitting with modern amenities, the decor was tired too. The bed linen was spotless and crisply clean, as was the room in general.
Steps up to the first floor room were okay for a young family, but older people may struggle with them.
The reverse cycle AC kept the place warm and breakfast was okay and included in the price. I checked when I booked that it was brekky for 4, though this was disputed by the hotel upon arrival - it was resolved however within a few minutes.
We had to suffer the noise of the people in the next room for most of the evening, though as we considered this a night's accommodation and not our main holiday stay, we turned up the TV and managed to ignore them.
As a stopover on the way to somewhere else we'd consider staying again, though not for more than that.
