The unit we stayed in was spotlessly clean in all areas, but the kitchen seemed a bit run-down, and all the utensils etc were clean but old. The glasses were on a shelf that looked like it hadn't been painted for decades.
When we arrived we put some milk, wine, and cheeses in the fridge then went out until around 9:30pm. Unfortunately upon returning, we discovered the fridge was switched off (at the wall socket) and the cheeses had all partially melted, and the milk wasn't so great either.
I wondered if, seeing as the motel was not busy, the fridge had previously been turned off to save electricity while the room was unused?
On the positive side, the unit was spacious with a double/queen bed in the lounge and three single beds in the second room. The internet speed was good, and the staff were friendly.
Probably wouldn't stay here again though, as despite the cleanliness it just felt a bit run-down. And the incident with the fridge - while no doubt an accident - was really annoying.
