Good, clean, budget hotel, ideally situated close to the airport and car rental companies. Make a nice breakfast - hot and cold - friendly staff. They Use a shuttle company to get from the airport to the hotel and will arrange it for you. ZAR 35 per person. Good stop after a long trip.

We had a latte flight in to Cape Town and were too tired to travel anymore so we booked 2 rooms for the night. However the rooms smelt of cigarette smoke. I guess we can't complain for a check in at 2am and check out at 10 am the next day. Its convenient for a stop over but not longer...

Thank you for staying with us. We’re glad you enjoyed the convenience of the hotel and the friendly staff – but we’re sorry to hear about the mattresses and the smell of smoke. We will look into these matters.

How bad has this place become! Gardens not maintained! Reception staff that can't look u in the eyes! Beds that needed a new mattress months ago! Vending machines that won't accept notes! The "lodge" group have lost me as a client to this hotel forever! Clearly it's like a well oiled money making machine with no emphasis on the the...

If you need a stopover for an early or late arrival flight, this is perfect. Rooms were clean, well maintained and good, comfortable beds. Small bathrooms but perfectly adequate for what was needed. Evening reception staff absolutely atrocious but security guard more than made up for her abruptness and rudeness. Again, we weren't too bothered as was literally spending 7...

I use the Road Lodge each time I arrive in Cape Town, it is well placed within the airport complex, and provides a clean/basic service for an overnight stop after and exhausting flight. You can get affordable transport the short distance to the hotel using the sport 24 shuttle located behind the left escalator in the arrival hall. R30 at...

Easy shuttle from airport to the hotel, there was someone there to help with the bags. People make the difference here - our first reception person was miserable and unhelpful to be replaced later on by a person who was so nice, very helpful and could not do enough. Re-train the first one! Double room was not big but big...

Stayed here as we had an early morning flight and is only a two minute drive from the airport. Safe parking and located next to a filling station which was a bonus as we had to refill the rental car. Basic room with shower, TV with a decent selection of channels and air conditioning. Did not book for the continental...

The Airport Road Lodge was a stop gap to help us get over the 10 hour delay to Durban. It was comfortble, seamless. You get what you pay for a bed for the night with no frills, not even coffee in your room.

We had an early flight to Johannesburg so chose to stay at the airport. The hotel is basic but very clean and perfect for a stopover. The staff are friendly and there is safe parking. They arranged a shuttle to the airport which was a bit more expensive than UBer would have been but right on time. The only big...

Our room, number 7, was small as was the bed but it was clean. I think they may have other bigger rooms if you need suitcase space. The staff were very pleasant. The breakfast was not worth R 75.00 per head but was adequate. Rather eat at Mugg&Bean or Wimpy at the Airport. The air-conditioner did not work. Only realised...
