Tiny rooms of very average quality, quite noisy too. I felt I should be wearing thongs in the shower, and like I was in public bathroom with strobing Fluro light. Guess the name says it all 'budget motel' 😳

It's cheap and it's noisy. The room was tiny, tiny. The owners must live in la la land, the prices they charge are NOT budget prices. It is not value for money and at $150.00 per night I would have expected a lot more. Don't leave the bathroom door open when you shower in case the fire alarm goes off...

Our "deluxe" room was small and very ordinary. Some superficial refurbishments are supposed to have been undertaken to what was once student accommodation but it remains very much at a budget level...except for the price.$180 per night is outrageous. At the very least please give us decent mugs for tea and coffee, better than single ply toilet paper and somewhere...

The rooms were clean and comfortable, the bed was decent and the tv was new. What more could you ask for in a budget motel? Plus the owners were fantastic! Super accommodating and friendly. The only downside was that it's a bit out of the way. If you don't have a vehicle, it might be a bit of a hindrance.

The owners are extremely friendly and generous, and go out of their way to call guests in advance and give helpful directions. Highly recommend for a perfect option if wanting a great motel in prime location. Very reasonably priced, comfortable and clean

I like this hotel because it's in the city proper. Rooms were big and it has a little kitchen. Staff were nice and accomodating.We wanted to stay here again last week but it was fully booked. We will stay here for sure again whenever we are going to Wollongong

The rooms were simple but spacious and fine, owners were very kind and welcoming, helpful in answering questions we had. Stayed here for a concert at University of Wollongong so the location was super close and easy to access. Good value for money paid!

The owners were warm, friendly and welcoming. Rooms are small, tidy with very basic necessities. Queen bed was below our comfort threshold. Combined with an enduring musty smell and a bathroom much in need of renovations etc. we will look elsewhere next time round.

Seem to be 2 sets of pics for this place on the web - v modern and old. South African couple that run it were friendly and welcoming. Room was v basic as expected but clean. Bathroom was v old and dingy and needs to be upgraded. Location on busy road was initially a turn off but the property goes...

The rooms are small and relatively uncomfortable. The bed is like sleeping on a rock. Definitely not worth the $$$ paid. Would only stay here if I had too. The Thai restaurant connected is very good. The receptionist is very accommodating despite the uncomfortable rooms.
