Basic but ticked all the boxes: comfortable bed, clean, fridge, microwave, toaster, hairdryer, staff very friendly. Not far from the CBD, only a few minutes drive. As it is on the Kings Highway there is traffic noise but not enough to stop me ftom sleeping. For the budget conscious an excellent place to overnight.

It's a bit dated and simple but its clean, fairly quiet, comfortable and the staff were amazing and helpful. The only issue we really had was the WiFi was a bit spotty but was quickly resolved every time. Would recommended it to anyone needing a place to stay that isn't too far from everything, we'll definitely be back.

I'm sure this place is a brothel. Smelly, kicked in doors. Refused to stay there and the desk staff were so rude. don't believe the photos!! Family room was more expensive to book online than advertised in foyer. Lost money as they refused full refund even though they had rebooked it whilst I was there. Truly awful experience!! Nothing left...

I stayed at the motel overnight en route to the snow and was by myself on this occasion. I didn't try the wifi because I forgot they had it! My room was perfectly adequate for the two people it would normally accommodate and although last decorated in what seems like the 80's, had everything I needed and more than I...

The motel is supposed to have wifi, which it did, but the internet didn't work in my room. This was unfortunate because complimentary wifi in Australian hotels and motels is not very common. The bathroom, which was very small, didn't have a separate towel to dry my hands with, and the shower had nothing except a bar of soap. The...

Cheap, yet clean The room have everything we needed even a microwave and bar fridge. Beds aren't uncomfortable, had a good nights sleep. Warning: be prepared for extremely friendly staff! The Chinese woman who helped us on arrival was very welcoming, answered every question, always had a smile and was just all round nice!

I recently stayed at the motel for 3 nights during the Australia Day long weekend and loved it. The rooms are very clean and I had a air conditioner and free standing fan. There was also a microwave in the room which is great if you want to heat up food. The room I had was very quiet and there...

The room was in a great location for what we wanted , had everything we needed and the wireless internet worked ,and the bed was comfy , our only complaint was the horrible long term stay people that were in the next room , heaps and heaps of verbal loud abuse, doesn't give the motel a good name

First impression was a tiny dated quite depressing room. Not somewhere you would want to spend more than one night. But as it was cheap at only $85 which is brilliant for only 10 minutes from Canberra Airport I wasn't expecting the Hyatt. Although the room was a quirky old style and small it did have everything I needed. The...

Went to this motel on our way home. Not a 5star motel by any means but it's honest and clean. Nothing bad can be said. You get free wifi and a docking port for iPhones as well as a DVD player which is all built into the TV. Nice hot shower. Had good facilities. Not a lot of room in...
