While the lady at the reception was polite and helpful, that is all that is good to say about my stay. Among the other 'guests' I could hear drug deals, prostitutes, loud arguments, swearing, spitting, constant yammering in a foreign tongue, and cars moving in and out for hours. Outside my room at one point there was a very large... More

I stayed here for a night when my houmates threw a raging party but I just needed a nice 8 hour sleep and recharge. A lovely lady checked me in at 3 or 4 in the morning like it was no hassle. I got straight to sleep in the comfy bed only to wake up a few hours later and... More

this is an older, less modern hotel with basic amenities. It's clean, comfortable and close to eateries, pokies, tab and public transport. Price is appropiate. What makes this hotel better than it's age or condition is the staff and their bend over backwards help! We are repeat guests because of this. Whilst bringing a team of Special Olympic Athletes to...

We were in the area for a conference.The motel was conveniently situated.. It was a positive experience in freshly decorated deluxe, room well appointed,staff friendly and most obliging. The bistro adjacent serves excellent meals.

Paid in full upon arrival, was shown to my room and was hit with the strongest cigarette smell as the door was opened. Asked for a refund as room and sounding guests were unsuitable. Was told I couldn't have one, changed my room to one that didn't smell as bad (still had cigarette odour). My bed and bathroom were clean,... More

This was a 3 night group booking. The organizer was happy with her room and terribly embarrassed about the behaviour of these guests. They decided as a group to book a budget motel in a busy suburban area to keep prices at bay.( Country people) Upon arrival they would only pay for 2 nights not 3 which was not the... More

This stay was one of the worst experiences of my life! The rooms were disgusting! There was a smoke smell in the room that was unbearable and when management was approached they said a t.v had been set a light and they couldn't get the smell out of the room! The management did not care, did not offer a change... More

These two reviews were partners in crime. I actually came into work on my day off to assist my colleague who had bent over backwards to assist these guests and was pulling her hair out by this stage. These people were on a mission and nothing was stopping them. We had put ourselves out to accomodate this group who made... More

You get what you pay for - a very cheap motel. Noisy - right on the highway. It was reasonably clean - but that is the only positive. Whatever you do - do NOT eat at the adjoining bar/restaurant. The food is inedible. My hubby ordered Spaghetti Bolognaise and I ordered Thai Red Curry Chicken...... cost $35.50, for complete rubbish.... More
