No bells or whistles but good value for your money
Our stay at the Alcala Motel was comfortable. The room was well maintained and clean. There was no air-conditioning, but there was lots of natural lighting and with open windows, the temperature is comfortable. The kitchen has a microwave and fridge and comfortable seating for more than one guest. The shower was interesting, in that the shower head was quite low and taller than average individuals would have to squat to take a shower. Other than that, the management was very responsive and friendly. Overall, value for money.

It suited my needs for the night. It is perhaps getting to the time it might consider an overall upgrade/modernisation, but is still well maintained in its current form.
