Furniture is well worn. Its tidy but in desprate need of some investment to up date and ensure things like drainage is in working order as shower doesn't drain properly. I know motel prices increase during peek times but there is a point where it just becomes price gouging and results in people feeling absolutely taken advantage of. Considering price...

Room basically OK. Bed comfortable, quiet fan and fridge, nice crockery and clean surfaces. Let down by a filthy old shower, with little water pressure, no where to put soap or shampoo and dangerous for those with sight difficulties or elderly with two floor levels in and out of shower. Filthy shower curtain. No coat hangers or anywhere comfortable to...

We were looking for somewhere cheap - but not something below standards. We paid for 2 nights but wish we didn't. The room was just tiny - the bed felt like it was from 100 years ago. Woke up with aching body every morning. I opted for the floor through out the stay to see which one was comfortable. The...

I am writing to tell people how rudely we were treated at Apple Motor Inn in Hastings on the 22nd Dec 2014. My husband myself, 19 year old son and 6 year old grandson were booked in to stay one night. We arrived back after being out for dinner at 9 p.m. The owner and several other people were drinking...

This will be the last time we stay at this motor inn. On arrival the fridge did not work but was changed quickly. The light bulb in the main area had 'blown' and couldn't be replaced until the next morning.The room smelt mouldy and felt damp. The handle on the wardrobe door fell off as there was not nut on...

Thank you for your comments. This unit is a budget unit in our complex and the tarriff clearly indicates the standard of room which you booked. These units are smaller than other units in our complex and have minimal amenities.... again this is reflected in the tarriff. They don't have cooking facilities..never have and there is no booking site which...

After reading all "not so good" reviews, I was worry that I'm going to have horrible experience, but turns out not! I was going to cancel the booking so I called the hotel, but the reception man answered my worries and explained how policy works with very understandingly and patient attitudes. My room was gorgeous and clean. After hopping some...
