“Cheap & convenient for travellers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2011

I booked this guesthouse (why "motel" I cannot understand - there is no parking!) for its convenience to the SSR Airport & the manager contacted me personally about a pick-up, which was very convenient. The room was clean but spartan - no bottled water or kettle provided until I asked. Predictably the promised WiFi was not working but the manager allowed me to use his computer since I had an urgent communication problem. I appeared to be the only guest and the owner greeted me at breakfast.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2011

The Motel is a family operated business. The owner proved to be extremely unhelpful when we arrived after a late flight saying our booking we had previously made through an agent did not exist. Thus putting us in a position where we had to pay again in cash upfront for a full weeks accommodation to stay in his establishment without any promise of a refund.

The location of the motel is on a busy street and is not near any tourist venues, for example the closest beach requires a public bus and the Islands capital is well over an hour away. After informing us all the car rentals in the island are booked out the dishonest owner offered us an excursion in his car. Don't be fooled!! We had agreed on a price and after a full day of endlessly driving us around the Island demanded over double the price we had agreed on. There is no reasoning with man and he is not afraid to raise his voice to get what he wants.

The rooms are basic and clean enough. Free WIFI is advertised but 'doesn't work at the
moment'. The motel offers a deluxe breakfast, one piece of dry bread roll everyday ?deluxe? There is no reception and the front doors are unlocked 24/7 leaving you feeling insecure.

I would not stay here again nor would I recommend it to anyone on the basis of the dishonest way money is made from tourists staying at the motel.
