Stayed recently with a group of friends. Wasn't expecting the Ritz, but wasn't expecting the disrepair and unappealing building and rooms. Our friend put a bag on the bench in her room and the bench gave way. The chairs we saw in all our rooms were in disgraceful condition and some were broken. In my own room, I opened the...

Needed a cheap place to sleep for a few hours while we were travelling through and we were able to get a cheap deal on wotif.com. Decent price, good location and room and amenities were clean and tidy.

Actually, I think glory might be overdoing it. This place has definitely seen better days, but "basic" sums up it's present incarnation. The location is excellent, right near Crown St Mall, Art Gallery etc, but that doesn't make up for it. Batteries in the age conditioner remote were dead, notices about card swipe boom gates and key dropboxes now incorrect....

We stayed overnight as we went to a wedding & reception and didn't want to drive back to Sydney. Downtown Motel suited our needs perfectly. It's fairly priced, centrally located and totally comfortable. The room was a decent size. Extra pillows & blankets are provided, along with a bar fridge, remote control air-conditioning and TV, iron & ironing board. There...

This is an older motel that could do with an update for sure, but for the price and location one can't complain. Importantly it is CLEAN and comfortable, and the staff are friendly and very helpful. Having relocated from an unacceptable motel that was way pricier, in a less superior location, very unclean and overally substandard, this motel was a...

We stayed at Downtown Motel in April to attend a show. The venue (The Music Room ) was less than 100 metres from the motel and we found plenty of good restaurants also in walking distance. Secure parking was a bonus so we just left the car at the motel .The room is probably 3 star but was very clean...

average motel. duvet cover had rips/ burns on it, plate wasn't clean, chairs stained. it's very outdated but would be good if it was updated, good location with restaurants 1 min away and good for a night out as it was only a 10 minute walk to clubs but not worth $125 for a double bed and room
