1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I would NOT recommend this property to a stray dog. I'm usually pretty relaxed and happy in most locations - not here. The only redeeming feature of this property is its' location to the Newfoundland Ferry. There is nothing else to recommend this property. The garbage and abundance of cigarette butts are everywhere on the property and right outside of most doors/windows, such that the odour flows into the rooms. My initial room was foul smelling from the abundance of cigarette smoke and mold/musty odour. The second room had a dirty toilet and neither lights nor fan in the bathroom worked. The third room was in working order and cleaner, albeit the level of cleanliness was certainly lacking. Dirt and dust on walls, sticky table surface and floor. At least this bathroom was clean and in working order. By this time it was 8 pm. The motel is very aged and in need of many repairs and a good paint job would add wonders to the feeling of the place. The onsite manager seemed uninterested in discussing my concerns and only moved me from room to room. If I had arrived earlier in the evening, I would have sought alternative accommodations. Best advice it to check the entire room for cleanliness and working lights/fans/fridge before you move in any belongings. It was a hassle moving stuff from room to room.
