2/10 Poor

Not a good place
Not a good place to stay, the lighting was terrible in the room, the bathroom flooded when we had a shower, the person that runs the motel was rude. There was no power points near the bed which I need for my sleep machine. It says it has wifi however when we got there no wifi or phone service. I can live without the phone service but not wifi when the website clearly says wifi. Also room was meant to be a smoking room couldn’t smoke in it, we were fine with that so we asked about the veranda if we could smoke on there, we were told no, why are you even asking? The area for the pool had no lighting and if people were going to swim in it at night it’s hard to see in the area.
