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.

Weird, rude, anal and just plain odd owners/managers is an understatement! If you don’t like the motel business Mr and Mrs Odd couple then get out of it! Cut your losses! You need to learn to allow your guests to have a relaxed stay. Apart from them both having a zero personality for customer service on any level, please be advised not to use the A/C with even the slightest crack of the front door open! Otherwise Mr Odd will pay you a visit and give you a lecture on wasting his electricity. Meanwhile Mrs Odd will be roaming the grounds looking for other guests for Mr Odd to lecture! We only wanted a little fresh air, as the room stunk like an old well used motel room in Hicksville. A word of warning! Please DO NOT EVER EVER STAY HERE no matter how cheap the rate! It’s 100% hideous!

Located on the edge of Lismore CBD with easy street access, my check-in was quickly done. Car parking is a mix of undercover and open car parking. My room was clean and a good size, whilst having a microwave and a good sized small fridge. The small ensuite bathroom was clean though the smell of bleach was strong and running the shower considerably reduced the smell. I slept well, as the bed was firm but comfortable. Late at night during my 2 night stay, a couple of guests were heard yelling, but this occurred at 2 different rooms. Early in the morning after my 1st nights stay, police arrived with lights and sirens to park across the driveway, blocking street access, then spoking with a guest which is not something, the motel has any control over. A number of the rooms are upstairs and stairs are the only access, with the front stair not having a light operating. I also found that a previous guest had put a sock over a wall light as I'm guessing it was too bright. Overall for the price the room was reasonable value. I think the room rates as a 3.7 out of 5, so gave it 4,

This is absolutely the worst place we have ever stayed in (and we've stayed on some bad places). If there was anything else at all anywhere within a 50k radius available, we would have walked straight back out the door. Filthy carpet, mould on bathroom ceilings, our shoes stuck to the bathroom floor tiles, filth and graffiti on the walls. Health department needs to inspect this place.

This seems like a nice place to stay but my recent experience left a terrible taste in my mouth. I had booked via hotels.com and had to cancel at the last minute due to a change in plans. I cancelled after double and triple checking the policies under which I had booked and confirmed that I was within the cancelation window. Checking my bank balance the next morning, I discovered I had been charged the full amount of my three day stay by the motel directly. I called hoping to correct a simple misunderstanding but was told this was their standard business practice. After a quick call to hotels.com customer service, it was relayed to me that they claimed they had never charged me, despite seeing a screenshot of my bank statement. Hotels.com had the issue rectified in a jiffy but this motel sent me a nasty email confirming they had sent a refund despite my bring in violation of their cancellation policy while copy/pasting the exact same terms I had agreed to and was in compliance with. Give them your business if you must but don’t trust them.

We travelled as a group. They have very good options for family rooms. Nice room with good size, clean bathrooms. Equipped with all necessary amenities. Enjoyed barbecue area. helpful staff. Central location surrounded with all tourist spots and Memorial bath was just next to it. Perfect place to stay with family.

Unless we scored the worst room in the complex I am at a loss as to how this place gets such good reviews. Dis-organised check in. We did book on a web booking service. Room had a reno some time ago. Nothing seems to match anything. No hand soap. There was a container present but was empty. Plenty of mould on ceiling in shower and mouldy window in the room. Mattress is firm which is fine but pillows are like rubber. Uncomfortable night's sleep. Blanket was undersize for the bed type. Shared the single packet of two buiscuits provided.

Excellent motel rooms with competitive price. Best for business travel. Very comfortable rooms with all basic amenities, as good as your own bedroom. Free high speed internet and foxtel added more value. Staff was very helpful.
