Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed for 2 nights this week, it was convenient as I was travelling to the snow for a day from sydney and needed somewhere close to mount stromlo mountain bike park for a quick ride on my way home (I left the bikes in the room rather than at the snow). Sharon left a key out for me as we arrived at 11pm, the room and bathroom was clean. For about $80 per night, I was not expecting 5 star but we had TV, fridge and Microwave and clean comfortable beds. The location was quiet, the shower was hot and the water lasted without any problems, it's a place to stay the night, I would not recommended hanging around during the day, it is not a destination but rather a cheap, clean, comfortable place to put the head down for the night.

Booked this place online through lastminute.com in June and received confirmation and booking reference. Wa sonly intending to stay one night so only wanted something basic and clean. However, when I arrived they told me they'd lost the booking and were now fully booked. They did however offer to put me up in a room being used by tradesmen to store their paints and tools etc. I didn't stay.

This motel is not central to Canberra at all when we checked in after about a 15 minute drive from the city we were disappointed as to the location and the quality of the room can not say anymore but was really not impressed

The only positives were clean sheets & towels, which are I admit, very important. Arriving late afternoon, when a manager?/owner? finally arrived at reception, she was unable to find our booking. Her manner was brusque & abrupt to the point of rudeness. (And her fingernails were long & dirty! Decided not to eat at this place!!) Fortunately I was able to produce a print out of the booking (through an agency) but she still denied ever receiving this. Upon asking if there were in fact 2 rooms available for our party of 2 couples, there was a less than enthusiastic response. To push her point home, she then insisted again that she had not received our booking as the only 2 bookings for that night were in the names of X & Z, one of which was my husband's first names! When I exclaimed that that was us & said the last name, she still initially insisted again, until suddenly there was an 'Oh' and a pause as she checked the computer screen. No apology! So onto the rooms. I wish I had left and not paid prior to seeing the rooms! The floors were clean but there was no basin in the bathrooms so you had to wash hands after toileting, in the 'sink' at the kitchenette, where the sink was in fact a dirty handbasin. The European blanket was a double size on a QS bed, very thin & the cover was dirty. Freezing Canberra night & no electric blanket so had to leave the heater on - guess we should be grateful there was a heater! The curtains had as dirty splash of something across them & were falling down at the end. Behind them the wall vent had fallen off the crumbling wall. One of the chairs had a large hole in the cloth-covered seat, but the very worst thing was that there was no hot water at night!! Upon speaking to the male owner/manager we were told that 'the guys down the end must have used it all. They complained earlier. Wait 1/2 hour then it should be ok.' It wasn't!! My husband & I and our son (one of the other couple) all got up early the next morning to ensure we got hot showers, but our son's partner went to have a shower at 8am & there was no hot water. (The place wasn't full.) When we left, at 9.30am, reception was closed. We have travelled extensively in Aus & O/S, & have been visiting Canberra several times a year for 3 decades as we have family living here. Never have we stayed in such a dreadful place. At $95/night it wasn't expensive, but this was just beyond the pale!! You have been warned!!

Friendly and helpful staff, great location, pet friendly and relaxed environment. Can't speak highly enough of the service I received here above and beyond the fake passive aggressive customer service you receive at most of the major hotels. Staff went out of their way to make sure we were looked after. Do yourself a favour and try it!

I booked the cheapest room I could find for a stop-over before an early flight home to Qld. As usual, there were some negative reviews here and elsewhere about this motel but a room with 5 beds is hard to find when the budget has been used up at the snow. I found this place to be warm, clean and quiet. We arrived after dark and were met by the manager who showed me the room and already had the heater going. We all had showers and the water was HOT with good pressure. Just what was needed. I felt comfortable and safe here. Other reviewers have said otherwise. I guess that if you want somewhere nearer the airport and for the manager to be wearing a suit and tie, you're welcome to pay double this room rate. It's not near anything and if you want food or any other amenities you need to go for a drive. It took about 15 minutes to get to the airport in the morning at 5:30am. During rush hour you'd need to double that to be safely on time.

The first three stars are for the basic accommodation, and the fourth is for the wonderful service, and the location. This is no Hyatt Canberra Hotel, but the rooms are clean, warm and comfortable. The motel is a bit hard to see as you come in off Cotter Rd - set right back from the main road, so there is no traffic noise at all. It was a six minute drive in light traffic to the National Library, where I was attending a conference, and a third of the cost of the hotels closer to the venue. The downside is that the distance from town does require a car, and I had trouble finding food - there was no microwave in the room, and nothing in walking distance to get your supplies. But for a low-cost base from which to explore Capital Country, this is a great location with friendly hosts that make the stay a pleasant experience.

Nothing fancy but very convenient right in the heart of Canberra but you would think you are in a small country town. Very nice people & Sharyn will go out of her way to make you feel very welcome. Will be staying here again next time we work in Canberra.

Great little place to stay. The lady who takes care of the place is so kind and lovely. Cheap rates too. Will definitely come back. Pets are more than welcome and there is a large area for kids to play.
