We had a girls weekend away and stayed at the Baywatch Motor Inn. The hosts were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The room was very clean and quiet. I would thoroughly recommend this motel. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.

Located on the end of the main drag it is closer to the cheaper restaurants, however nothing is a particularly far walk away. If you want to climb the Mount you may want to drive a bit closer though.The room was clean and modern and the staff friendly. Check-in and out was painle

This is 3rd derogatory written review you have made in response to the fact that we declined your request for a midday check out. "The Lady" at reception never even spoke to you - you dealt with my husband at check in time and never in person requested a late check out - it was all done over email through booking.com, where it was politely declined. It is not always possible, due to housekeeping, maintenance and prior early check in requests to fulfill a late check out request. We provided you with an extra half an hour which fitted in with the requirements from our motel guests who had made prior arrangements and our staffing requirements on the day to make sure rooms were ready for our afternoon arrivals. The offer to you to book another night so that you could remain until your requested check out time was also made,(as we would not have been able to get the room cleaned to resell), even though you found this offensive. I hope this matter is now over for you. I am sure you will find another motel to stay at in future that will be able to offer you the late check out that you seem to assume is a right.
