I was very disappointed arriving at the property. I called ahead to let the attendant know i was arriving after midnight. The key was exactly where the attendant told me. I had trouble finding my room which was located on the backside of the motel. When going to my room, there were several wildlife animals in the area. The bed was very uncomfortable and after a 6 hour drive it was a disappointment. I ended up across the street at the Best Western approximately 1:00 am where I was greeted with a smiling attendant who gave me a room for the same price as the disappointing Wanderoo. Oct. 3, 2022 I went back to the Wanderoo to let the attendant know I did not stay at his property and wanted a refun. I was not given a refund for that disappointing room that I did not stay in.

The rooms were a big disappointment. Nothing like the pics on Expedia. The rooms had a weird smell, the carpet was stained and we were killing bugs. It just wasn't anything like we expected. We left try next morning because the guest above us partied until after 2:30am. We went to another hotel. The Gravel Bar was great.

Liked: Cleanliness
There’s a positive and a negative
The room was ok but the the shower head coming out of the wall and the unpredictability of the water pressure wasn’t so great. Also the bed was alright but with two thin pillows for two people wasn’t so great. I would have asked for another room but this was a weekend in town where every hotel was sold out. The restaurant and bar is great and the service as well.
