    The fact that the entrance was on a side street making it easier to get in and out, than if it was onto busy Riccarton Rd.

    Parking was very slim. Parking spots very small, not enough for all the units. Not the Motels fault but roadworks making it doubly difficult to get in and out of the driveway
