We last stayed here back in 2009 where I reviewed it and it's misgivings then.
I am surprised to note that the motel was refurbished this year. Unfortunately apart from a coat of paint and a new Air conditioner I couldn't see much improvement. The kitchen area is just plain grotty. The dirt ingrained around the sink edges where they meet the laminate was disgusting. You can't control the a/c, they don't supply the remote. The courtyard area light didn't work.
I agree with others that the smell which assaults you as soon as you open the door is very off putting. Again no Foxtel, no wifi etc. make this a poor choice. I believe there's better around if you're not fussy on location.
We won't be back but I sincerely hope this place gets cleaned up for the sake of other guests.
