          Located near mrt. Quite old. But no frills. Stayed in deluxe double. TV had free sex channels. That's why it's a motel. Lolx Surrounded by food! No worries of lacking late night supper... If u need daily cleaning, need to tell them.

          I hear most motels in Korea don't let guests stay in the room nor leave the bags during day time, because they need to rent them out for few hours. is Cara Motel also that type?
