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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely hotel. Great and helpful staff, clean, lovely ambience and located minutes from the City. It is THE place to stay when visiting Lae. Morobe Hotel is has the Lae Garden City Restaurant in the same compound. This restaurant serves a large variety of delicious Chinese food. Strongly recommended.

I was really impressed with this hotel, the rooms are spotless and finely furnished to a high standard (starting K399). It’s safe and staff are very friendly and professional. The cafe and restaurant next door (in the same compound) are great value for money with amazing views over Lae and surrounding mountains. It’s better to get a room on level 2 or 3 as it’s a bit quieter than level 1 where reception is. The sound does travel a little. Only use Guard Dog to get around in this city.

Unfortunately I haven’t got the chance to stay here but I’ve been to the restaurant upstairs on numerous occasions and I’ve never been disappointed! Best Asian restaurant in town, a cute cafe on the side for some nice desserts and a spectacular view of the city and mountains!

I’ve stayed in Lae city and Lae international and Hotel Morobe will be the one I return to. Wifi actually works which is more then the other two. Rooms are smaller but fine. New restaurant upstairs is very tidy with good views over the town. Free breakfast is actually decent.

Rooms were big and bright. Food at the newly-opened restaurant in the hotel was super good Chinese food. We loved the pineapple fried rice! However, service was really slow as the restaurant just opened a day before we were there. It took about an hour before our food arrived. A lot of improvement could still be done in this area. Hotel management and staff were friendly and really accommodating. The Hotel Manager, Mark, even offered the hotel's service vehicle if we needed to go to the bank to change money. We loved their breakfast. The sausage and bacon were not fatty and not oily. One proof is that my boss who usually eats light managed to finish her big breakfast. Also, if you happen to stay here, make sure to try the cakes at their cafe Cafe 411. Everything was good -- the Japanese cheesecake, mud pie, tiramisu cake. Thanks, Hotel Morobe.

Lae is only a stop for tourists. It’s not safe and this hotel is good for those of us that want some piece of mind during our stay! It’s clean, has the amenities and the staff is great! They have a sister hotel and restaurant that is very good.

the size of the rooms in this hotel is not as big as other hotels around. However, the breakfast is better, as they serve eggs and sausages aside from bread, fruits and cereals. The location is a little too far. Not so many choices to buy food from.

My first visit to this hotel and everything was very good. Helpful staff, a nice room and a secure, central location. The café is being upgraded which will be a further improvement. Breakfast is a buffet style at present but will be further expanded. Room service is high quality and efficient. Recommended!

I had the pleasure of staying in this fine establishment over the Easter weekend, 2016, and cannot recommend it enough. Room was a good size, bed was comfy and bathroom was roomy. Everything was what one would expect for real good Motel of Australian quality. Staff were very helpful, and though the brekky was 'light on', it was still quite enjoyable and plenty enough. Security was great. If you come to Lae, I completely recommend you stay here.
