Booked a 2 bed motel room for 2 nights online, based on the glowing reviews. We walked in and it smelt of damp(?) the floor rolled downwards towards the front door. The kitchen was filled with mismatched crockery and cutlery and had last been updated in 1970s. Bathroom was fine

Response from frankee55, Receptionist at 252 Beachside Motels & Holiday Park

Our cabins are only basic and small. The doors can all be securely locked along with any other room. We checked the communal showers and the curtains seemed to have all been in order however the cleaners may have fixed it the day after it happened. If the shower curtain was wrecked and bothering you, you could have come and told a staff member so we could solve the problem for you. In response to the uneven shower floors they are on a slight lean so the water runs towards the drain. The booking was only showing the cost for 2 adults and we had advised via the booking site the extra cost in advance giving you plenty of time to cancel if you were unhappy with the price. If you were feeling uncomfortable for some reason you could have come and talked to the reception about it and we would have happily refunded the money.
