Thank you Michelle the manager, had a wonderful stay here, staff are all very friendly and happy to help as much as they can to make your stay enjoyable.

Thank you to Kiri the cleaner, willing to help with any request, very friendly and an excellent cleaner and communicator.
Both Michelle the Manager and Kiri the cleaner went out of their way to help me and made the stay most enjoyable.

I would strongly disregard all the negative comments.

The value for money is excellent. The place is very clean. Beds comfortable.
Location is really good, close to restaurants (none in the motel),and a 2 minute walk to the beach. Swimming pool is very clean and very well looked after.
Very happy to have stayed. Would thoroughly recommend this place. Definitely be back to stay.

Me and my two kids stayed in a room 1 night, and my brother and his friend were in another room. I didnt expect it to be flash, but it was beyond what i had thought. Cockroaches, mould, cracks in walls, broken light shades full of bugs just to mention a few problems. I couldnt believe cleaners worked there to be honest. I have cleaned in motels before myself. There was no ceiling fans and the aircon was useless. The rooms were very stuffy. Notes everywhere telling you what you must NOT do. Mary was lovely and friendly, but it is not what you expect when you pay for a room. I expect cleanliness in the very least. Wouldnt go back again, but if you are looking for something fairly cheap and central then go there, oh and to connect to the internet was a nightmare unless you went outside and to the front of the building

Sheets are ok, but if you are on a tight budget, this is the place for you. Promised free wifi, but couldn't connect to it. lots of insects. one good thing is that the host is friendly and will help you with your itinerary. Otherwise, if possible stay at somewhere else.

Room Tip: You pay for what you get.

Booked through Internet. Photo's looked OK. Reality was very different. Room dirty, 1/2 inch of dust on clock. Furniture old, scratched, saggy. Disgusting. Looked like they had been there for 20 years. A few bits of missed matched pieces of crockery and glasses. I had a cold shower but water had heated when husband used it. Every time we went to the office it was open but screen locked. Hard to locate owners to complain. The worst was yet to come. In the morning was covered in itchy red dots which are still visable 3 weeks later. I presume they are from bed bugs as marks look similiar when looked up on computer. As were going on a cruise, starting out this way certainly put a damper on it. I cannot believe from some of the other reviews we are talking about the same Motel. The only good thing was leaving the Jadran

Room Tip: Look somewhere else
