    The beds were very good and the staff member was very helpful

    The room was dirty, the spa was cracked and broken, all the windows had not been cleaned and a long time. for the price we paid it was not worth it. for 8 dollars more we found a better hotel across the street which was great (oasis resort) i would higly recomend!!

    Karaka Tree Motel is quiet. Our unit was far enough away from the road not to hear any vehicle noise. The spa was excellent.

    There were a couple of lights that didn't work, and we informed the staff about this.
