    Location, cleanliness of room.

    Our towels were taken away, despite being hung up to be re-used. Not really a bad thing, but we were happy to use again.

    Suggest heating be improved - At the price paid would expect airconditioning/heatpumps in the current market. Bar style heaters with fans not really up to standard now days. Other than that yes would reccommend the Motel.
