Checked in late which they were able to accommodate. Plenty of free onsite parking despite very central location. Free laundry, and the staff helpfully moved laundry to laundry bag when done. Rooms were comfortable and clean and wifi was free and fast. Would definitely recommend.

Owner/operators with English as a second language, therefore oral commuication difficult and specific requirements lost in translation. Units are revamped 1970's style, basic and accepatble for one/two nights. The Motel's location near Latimer Square is its best asset
