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.

There is no pool or restaurant or bar available here but I guess they may open as the year progresses. Lovely staff, basic rooms, very clean and everything works. A great no frills place to stay in a central location. Outdoor parking is available and it is popular amongst workers

Very noisy, a lot of workers staying here and a lot of loud talking and running around and banging on doors. Room itself Is neat and tidy, bed if fine, shower pressure is average, furniture showing it’s age. Restaurant is shut .

Recently stayed at this hotel for work, really miserable place to stay in Lismore. On my first night there, I was kept well entertained all night by very noisy footballers in the rooms above me and noisy people in the rooms either side of me, who were all still partying to the very early hours of the morning. Management reported they "spoke to all the party goers" through the night to tell them to quieten down; i didnt hear any of that happen and it certainly didnt work. There is not a lot of noise reduction between rooms, so surrounding conversations are heard quite easily. The location of the hotel is convenient, on the main shopping street and only a short walk to the shops. The hotel classes itself as 4 star, but check what type of room you are booked into, because only the renovated rooms are 4 star. I was in an old, unrenovated room, which was dirty, with old amenties, and a very strong smell of ?bleach. I dont blame the cleaning staff in these situations, Im sure they are allocated only a short period of time to clean rooms, so obviously can only do so much. The bathroom was very old style with stained, filthy floor tiles, absolutely no room to get dressed whilst in the shower area and really not pleasant at all. I would suggest there are better places to stay in Lismore

New ownership since I last stayed here and they have made some upgrades to the rooms. Handy place to stay as there are plenty of restaurants nearby within a reasonable walk or a short drive. Quite comfortable.

Stayed for 1 night, great location with friendly staff. Beds are soft and provided with extra pillows and blankets without any additional costs. Iron and ironing board also provided complimentary in room. Overall was a good stay for the price you pay. Would only ask management to make sure there is no smoke smell in the non smoking room. The window must have been left open after house keeping and outside smoke blew inside the room. But apart from that, was not bad.

Stayed here one Thursday last month (September). We booked through booking.com and chose Karinga as it was rated 4 star and the online photos looked fine. We paid $122 for my wife and I, which was way over priced for the quality of the room. I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves.

Several rooms were booked for family members for two nights and all were rather disgruntled regarding the unavailability of the pool due to a pump breakdown, and no microwave or toaster in the rooms. My sister, who runs an AirB&B pointed out that guests should have been notified about the pool, as it was February weather, or offered a discount. That was met with excuses by the manager(?). Also we were rather rudely directed to the public pool across the road by the office staff, which, after paying for the rooms, we considered the extra costs were over the top. The rooms were exceptionally clean and beds were comfortable otherwise.

Response from TraceyD2012, Manager at SureStay Hotel By Best Western Karinga Motel
Responded 5 Mar 2020
We are sorry, that the pool was not open, but it was beyoud our control, that the pump broke the day before, and we are not to know that our guest only booked this motel for the pool. Also with no microwaves or toaster in rooms, all they had to do was ask for them. We don't have them in rooms as we have a restaurant on site. We are not a Air B&B.
