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 owner was lovely to deal with but my heart sunk as we walked in; my husband will never live this booking down. The family room was so outdated. As I inspected, my heart sunk more when I saw the shower curtain and the bed spreads. I stay in motels regularly for work and thought bed spreads were a thing of the past. We had to go and buy extra towels from Woolies because we like one per shower but also there was no where to hygienically dry 4 towels. The beds were so hard that we all had head aches and sore neck and shoulders. I suggested we go home early rather than spend a 2nd night but we decided to suck it up so as not to disappoint the kids by cancelling our plans for the full weekend but I desperately wanted to leave. The car parks are so tight like other reviews so I'm glad my husband was driving. The other issue we had all weekend was that sometimes the key would easily pop the door open and other times it was a no go and at one point had to get the owner to come and help get into our room. The mini bar fridge was full of mold in the seals - gross. It would actually be so easy to make some simple changes and turn this place around. A good start would be getting rid of those manky shower curtains and making the beds with sheets under and over the blanket and get rid of those old bed spreads.

Good budget hotel option. Priced at the lower end of the range, we went went with low expectations. It was a little dated but had everything we needed for our one night stay through Portland. Conveniently located a short walk to the heart of town.

A REASONABLE MOTEL AND WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF MOST AMENITIES. THE ROOM WAS VERY COMFORTABLE BUT INCLINED TO BE A BIT NOISY AT NIGHT. IT HAD ALL THE USUAL KITCHEN UTENSILS WE REQUIRED. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS MOTEL TO ANYONE, NOTHING SPECIAL BUT NOT BAD EITHER.

Stayed 4 nights + 1 night for worker. Manager was never happy with anything, left plenty of notice (48hrs) on plan change and he winged, at 6:15pm office was closed so called and asked for a plate to eat my takeaway on and got a big sign and groan, I told him not to worry. Room was never made up and parking is bad. No shampoo or conditioner. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and it’s reasonably close to a great pub, that’s no all this place has going for it. My company will not be staying here again.

I have stayed here several times and find the rooms to be clean and tidy and spacious. There is ample parking on the property and it is very close to the CBD. OTR service station opposite is open 24 hrs. Bill the owner/manager is always friendly. The price is very reasonable compared to other properties in Portland.

Within minutes of walking into this DUMP we were on the phone trying desperately to get out. After driving 10 hours it was 9pm by the time we checked in so we had no option but to stay. Checked out 7.30 am following morning. The place is dirty, smelly, mouldy, dated and the owners are RUDE and unhelpful. When we complained the response was “oh well you can’t please everyone “ DO NOT STAY HERE unless you enjoy sharing you stay with low lives and foul mouthed bogans. The owners have refused to refund any money.

We booked an Apartment. The apartment was in fact 2 hotel rooms joined together with a shared (and very old) bathroom. Apartments have kitchens/ cooking facilities. This is false advertising. Who has shower curtains in 2020 ? Would not stay again or recommend. In major need of basic maintenance.

This place was truely awful. From the minute we walked In the lady at the front office was disorganised and rude. Our room was extremely old and very dated. The curtains could only open quarter of the way and the noise from the road was very loud day, night and in the morning as a busy roundabout was right outside the door. The door opened onto the footpath beside the road. The pillows were hard and uncomfortable and the room had a musty smell when we walked in. Lightning was very minimal. This place is a 15-20 minute walk to the beach. Car parking is very tight. My advice -pay slightly more and stay elsewhere!
