Not quite what we had hoped
Posted Jun 7, 2016
Unfortunately this was one of those instances where the Expedia rating let us down.
The Motel wasn't bad, it just wasn't good value for the money you pay for it. The room was clean and fairly big, but at the end of the day it really was just your run of the mill Motel. I'm unsure why the price was higher than others in the area, which I'm sure were very similar. Obviously the only big difference was having the spa in the room, but I will explain why we never actually felt comfortable using the spa.
The morning after our first night, house keeping came around. We didn't need it as we hadn't really used anything, and didn't feel like being disturbed. I had a look around for a 'Do not disturb' sign, but there wasn't one. So we waited for them to come around, they knocked on the door, and I replied with "No thank you". They then left, only to come back a couple of minutes later and unlock and open our door to ask if we wanted anything like towels. At the time we were right in the middle of getting ready for the day, neither of us completely dressed, definitely not wanting to be walked in on. Although it wasn't a huge deal as I managed to catch them at the door, only missing my shirt, it is one of those things where it could have been a whole lot worse, and it left us feeling very uncomfortable with the whole spa bath situation knowing that staff were able to walk in and that we didn't have a 'Do not disturb' sign available.
We never felt completely comfortable after that.
