Great one nighter

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Mar 2022via mobile
We hired the room for one night on our way back to Melbourne after a holiday in Tasmania. We booked it because it is close to the ferry, however it was much more than that. It was a room in the newer part of the motel clean, large, good facilities, quiet (with the door closed) and efficiently run.
We will stay her again if we come back to Tassie.
Date of stay: March 2022
Room Tip: Get one of the newer rooms
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

We chose the motor inn as it was close to the Spirit's port which made it quick to get to when we arrived in Devonport. The motor inn is located on the river port area and next to the Bass Highway. We didn't have any problem with traffic noise during the day and it wasn't bad at night either. It is close to drive into Devonport shopping area where there is a Coles and Wollies supermarkets. Our room had had some refurbishment but it seemed to be half done with paint flaking on the ceiling and power points in user unfriendly positions. The bathroom had been refurbished but needs to have a better clean of the ceiling as there is some mould starting.

The bed was very comfy. There is a guest laundry on site but we didn't use it.

There is a bistro on site which serves pub food at a reasonable price and what we had was very tasty.

This hotel is situated in East Devonport which is close to where the Spirit of TAS leaves.

Stayed here with extended family, while the rooms are small, they are super clean and offer the usual amenities.

Reception customer service was helpful, friendly and very efficient.

It’s motel environment, your car is parked outside your room for easy access and a short walk to the local onsite local pub which is very popular with locals.

Bottle shop and several cafes nearby, it is situated on the other side of the city but a short walk or drive across the bridge to take you to the mall etc.

Thanks All at Argosy. Really enjoyed our stay
Looks older style on outside but all nice modern inside. Totally okay for short stays .
Plenty room. Breaky avaliable at Property as is Dinner in Bistro .
Walk across road to Mersey River. 5 min drive to Ferry Terminal. Short drive across Bridge to Devonport main shopping area. There are shops near Ferry too on same side as Motel and Beautiful Ocean Beach.

Room tip: Two sorts of rooms. One more up market and 2 bedrooms. We have stayed in both. Dont be put off by slightly old style appearances on outside. All good in. Nice Meals too

It was clean with a lovely refurbished bathroom

Parking outside the room and bistro on site serving well priced meals.
Perfect for staying near Spirit of Tasmania , just a matter of minutes.
I will definitely stay here again.
Service was friendly too

Room was clean, however I think smoking was allowed some years ago and the our room has some smoking smell.
The room was facing the road so although at night it was not too busy, still noise from the road is heard.

Room tip: Avoid rooms facing the road.

Sorry to hear that you found the room smelt of smoke. We do not and have not allowed smoking in our rooms for many, many years. Unfortunately some guests may smoke out side the room while their door is open. We will try to address to ensure that no smell lingers in rooms
