I paid $180 for a night for a place that should have been about $90.00 a night it is old and run down, I stay in about 30 motels a year and would say this is about the worst I have stayed in given the price charged

Dear Guest, We’re sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay. During peak seasons such as school holidays we often sell out of smaller room types, leaving only family-size rooms available. Typically these are occupied by 4 or 5 people, and thus cost more than single or double rooms. On this occasion you booked at the last...

4 of us were looking for cheap accommodation (nothing fancy) just for 1 night before flying overseas the next day. This motel was very good value, not far from the city, and just a 10-15 minute walk to Summer Hill shopping centre. The motel rooms were small, but clean and the shower had plenty of hot water and good pressure....

Very friendly staff. The motel is Very Very tired and desperately needs to be updated. Motel is priced accordingly and is a cheaper option then city hotels. Public transport is at the door. There are NO lifts to the rooms so that means carrying your luggage up the stairs to your room. You could hear upstairs dragging chairs across the...

The housekeeping left a lot to be desired, we had noisy neighbours and with no lift to the upper floors it would make it hard for elderly holiday makers to get to their room. However the location was good, secure free parking was a bonus and the beds were comfortable. If you are just looking for a stop over in...

Stayed in a family room which was a little disappointing when first entering in the room. There is nothing at all pretty or luxurious here. 1 double bed, another double with a bunk above made the room quite crammed. The bathroom was quite basic and there was a TV and coffee facilities with microwave. Was pleasantly surprised with the check...
