Motel is old and tired. Bed uncomfortable. Furniture large and overwhelming in the small,room. Desperately needs an upgrade. Moulder not have stayed here by choice but for the conference. Room facilities ok and housekeeping staff wonderful. Carpet in the room damaged. If coming to Hobart for a visit their are much better options available.

Had a great stay here and got a good price by booking directly through the hotels website. Staff were lovely at check in. Free car parking right next to Motor Inn accessed by your room key was very handy. Had a local friend come and visit me while I was there and it was very easy and free for him...

Loved this motor inn. Decent price & room was way bigger & nicer than what I paid in a different "brand name" hotel. Loved the pool & spa. Room over looked the water. Has many attractions nearby & plenty of places to eat at. A big plus is free parking.

The Motor Inn is located to one side of the Wrest Point hotel complex built on the waterside with a tower that is a prominent feature of the Hobart skyline. We found that Wrest Point was isolated, a long walk to get into town. The hotel featured a casino and several gaming rooms, as well as a swimming pool and...

This is a low budget motel at 5-star hotel prices. I've stayed in 5 star hotels at lower cost - and I got a deal on this place! No lifts. Tired and grubby feel to the rooms and motel. Noisy gate that hasn't been oiled in years. More than a mile from Salamanca market etc. Only stay if you're really...

We stayed in the Motor Inn part of the Wrest Point Casino. The room was very roomy and the bathroom was a step back in time, but still nice. The only downfall about this part was that there was no lift, only stairs. The pool and spa was nice that was located in the main building.

Clean, efficient, and a good-sized room. My only issue (which is hardly a fault of the place, to be fair) is that it's a pretty fair walk to the centre of Hobart. Be prepared to either order a taxi, or wear comfortable shoes... The casino was like every other casino in the world - dreadful. But there again, I didn't...

The rooms are of a decent size, clean with nice Manchester. Pillows are good as is the Doona. The bathroom is old but ok. Wall hairdryer. Tea / coffee. For the price of these rooms i expected a lot more. Very old and the room smells. They would not have been updated since they were built. Service at the front...

We stayed in Water Edge King room and for the $179 a night I was impartial. I thought for a $179 dollars you would get breakfast at least but hey ho it wasn't to be. The rooms were clean but very dated. Art Deco but a little bit tired. It's definitely a step back in time. The bed was comfortable...
