          So Agoda has a price for accommodation. I rang the Motel to price match. She advised that Agoda shouldn't have the price so low and she was going to change it. She advised Agoda double book often. She wouldn't price match. I booked 2 nights through Agoda. We arrived late arvo. The room was reasonably clean. Lights and desk dusty. Bed was made but by the look of it by a child. We got home the next day. The bed was pulled up and the pillows thrown on the bed. No clean towels provided. Wouldn't recommend for all of these reasons.

          Free parking right outside your room. Room was alright, furniture looks old. Overall, clean place to stay. Walking distance to Westfield shopping mall and a beach.
