I arrived at midnight, very tired I’d been awake since 5AM. Door key/card didn’t work, had return to lobby. Second key card didn’t work, I had to insert multiple times finally it worked. I was almost in tears. I had to get up at 4:30AM. Carpet inside room badly stained. Furniture was spartan. Room had strange odor. Bathroom was clean, but modular shower insert very slippery inside—be careful like the sign says. I ordered taxi for 5AM and it was 15 minutes late, and arrived 10 minutes after inquiring a second time. Service at desk mediocre, inattentive. Overpriced even for location. For a motel chain this was a disappointment. I wish I stayed at one of the mom and pop type places I also found listed nearby. I almost never fill these out. So maybe people only post bad reviews and those with good experiences don’t post. I may skew the rating negative and I apologize—it’s just that my experience was less than underwhelming.

The room smelt - a combination of cannabis, damp and something! The room was very cold, there was a heater in the room that kept sparking and was a fire hazard, after repeatedly asking they put the central system on heat (it was set to cool though the weather outside was 12 degrees at best). When they eventually set it to heat around midnight after the third time of asking, and we put the room fan on to warm up the room, it didn't work. The extractor fan also didn't work, and as the window wouldn't open there was effectively zero ventilation in the room. My kids got sick - hardly a surprise, and *very reluctantly* we decided to stay another night, because we didn't want our kids to have to go on a train when unwell - but they wouldn't clean the room or even refresh the beds. We decided to leave because keeping sick kids in a room with no ventilation that hadn't even had bedding they'd vomited on changed - was not going to happen. This was a horrible stay.
