I can't believe this Motel is still operating

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 9, 2011

I have had the misfortune to stay at this hotel. We booked online from Sydney where it was described as an international hotel with tennis court and swimming pool. Well the room was disgusting – I couldn’t bring myself to get under the covers. Cobwebs hung from the ceiling and mould grew up the walls.

People walk the corridors at night, smoking, and trying the doors. I could also here the comings and goings of the room above as the women entertained her various male acquaintances through out the night.

The tennis courts floor covering was worn and had large holes in it. The chain mesh fence surrounding it was broken and hung from precariously from the few remaining wires.

The pool was unusable as they had replaced the water with gravel...

I spent only one night here back in 2009 and I was astonished to read that it is still operating. If you value your life – don’t stay here…
