"The floor had not been swept before we moved in, as there was food under the bed. The bathrooms were dingy and grimy, and are in desperate need over being overhauled - the bottom of the bath was black and the tiles in the bathroom were dirty. It was the worst motel out of three we had stayed in over the previous week."
