Disappointing

3 room changes before one was found with a working AC. No remote for TV in one room and in the other room there was a remote but it didn't work. Cable was not working for the whole stay of which reception was aware of and the TV broke on the last day anyway. curtains did not fit the windows in one room and the second room didn't have any and so we had to put the bedspread up at it! In this same room the toilet flooded and we were just given towels to mop it up ourselves. Staff were friendly and polite but did nothing about the problems. On the Thursday evening the restaurant at the rear takes up most of the parking spaces at the Motel for their valet parking and its music can be heard in all the rooms on the right until the early hours. Although I was not there over the weekend, the restaurants security told me they were fully booked which implies parking at the motel would get tighter! I cannot recommend this Motel.
