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.

The towels provided are like wiping yourself with cardboard, definitely C grade, very poor, and are not brilliant white. Soap bars are not provided, just oily body wash. Rooms are adequate. Staff are very good.

This motel would have to be one of the worst I have stayed in. I don’t understand how this place could be rated a 4 star. It was run down dirty and noisy, people having little parties in the hallway swearing etc until 2.00 in the morning. The staff member we reported it to didn’t seem to interested. Avoid this place

Without a shadow of a doubt, this is the worst Motel I have ever stayed in. Our room was dirty, the coffee machine in the room wasn’t put together properly and when I tried to put my cup in place, the base it was supposed to sit on fell out onto the floor, spilling previous occupants mouldy stale coffee pods and watery coffee dregs on the carpet, my feet and the bottom of the mattress & bedding. On opening the fridge, the only shelf was broken in half and the milk was occupying the only remaining intact door-shelf. The bathroom fan/light vents directly above the BED so if someone uses the toilet, whoever is in the bed, gets the smell from the toilet contents straight on their head and face. This review is only part of the overall experience of this supposedly 4 star Motel, old bits of soap with pubic hair attached etc. We spent 1 night here. It was more than enough. I’d never do it again - even if THEY paid ME.

Place is shabby and very basic - not sure where they got the right to call it deluxe! Fridge shelves broken, mould and rust in the bathroom, bath chipped. It is situated on an ‘island’ in between two very busy freeways so traffic noise starts early. Yes, there is free undercover parking and the hairdryer was great!

Falling apart and not very hygienic. Stayed two nights over a weekend, plaster cornices were falling from the ceiling, rust and grime in shower, used shampoo and body wash bottles left in shower, toilet seat was falling off and power points were on the other side of the room so could not charge phone (used as alarm) overnight. Towels were like sandpaper and key required force to remove from the barrel. There was a sign on the desk that rooms are not serviced over weekends, which is a first for me, so I don't really know what the price tag provides for. This property is a self-rated four star (even for a motel), however I give it two as I did not feel comfortable staying at this property.

I stayed here for 6 nights for a training course nearby. I was impressed overall. Room was clean, wifi was very fast with a strong signal and the room relatively was quiet, despite being near a busy main road. Rooms included a pod coffee machine too, with coffee pods free of charge from reception. Walking distance from Rocklea railway station (which is temporarily closed but has stationlink buses to to the next station up the line). Only minor quibble was that reception was sometimes closed earlier than the published hours. I would happily stay here again.

A new and clean building with good trees and gardens, good parking, handy to rail, small but clean rooms. If the towels weren't like c grade sheets of canvas this would have a higher rating. Don't understand what the 'international' means, it's not really more than a nice local motel.

My wife and I stayed for a night in transit and we had a pleasant stay. The positives, good value for the tariff, very friendly staff, great toiletries, including body wash, shampoo and conditioner, pod coffee and not sachets of instant. Lovely shower over bath with almost instant hot water. The bed was brilliant, not too hard or soft. We both had no trouble falling asleep. The room was extremely quiet with no road or train noise at all due to double glazing. There were a couple of slight negatives though, firstly the rooms are on the 1st floor and no elevator so had to carry bags up stairs. There is only one power point in the main room which is above the bench on the opposite side of the room to the bed. As my wife has a cpap machine it was a bit of a stretch. Also difficult if you have to charge devices. The other negative was that on the weekend there is only the hotel across the road for food within walking distance. We did find a great noodle place in Sherwood about 5 or so mins drive. All in all we did have a peaceful night, would stay again and would recommend the motel.

Hands down the worst Motel I have endured during my 40 years plus of business travel. Rude staff, dirty room, smelly/blocked drain, torn curtains (no blockout), noisy, shocking location, cigarette odour, no hot water - the one positive was I only suffered this “establishment” for one night. Avoid at all costs.

Firstly this place is a motel. In reality it offers a bed and a bathroom. This does both of these, it is clean and tidy, and presents well. The rooms are not that big, but functional. I was in the "rear section" where there is a window that looks at the "front section" bit had no need for a view. The shower is OK. A reasonable rose and good pressure, but only half the folding door....the cleaners must hate it, as the floor is wet not matter how careful you are..... The only real delta on the place, is that it has soap in a pump, not a bar.....and if you are like me, hate them....BYO soap and it serves if function well.
