2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
The highlights were few but the Motel is in a good location and I enjoyed a hot shower in the morning. The amenities however were old and the heater either did not work or did but there were no instructions and the cord did not reach a power point. The kettle needs attention and the room is cramped and TV not in a good position but the reason for the poor rating was the toilet was dirty and very obviously not cleaned.
