The linen on the beds was nice and fresh. Well, that's all of the good stuff out of the way, now let's talk about the bad. I have NEVER stayed in a motel that was as filthy as this establishment. On first impression I thought "she's an old motel that's been freshened up a bit", but that thought soon passed...

The place was in a very poor condition. Everything was very old and falling apart, and we found cockroaches in the bathroom. Just outside the room there was a big pond that formed from the rain that you had to bypass before getting to the room. The Wifi was not that great either.

Stopped in on our way back to Wollongong from Brisbane. Was greeted at the car an given a tour of the room, shown how to use the TV and air con. Very comfortable room (one double bed and one single). Very clean. Yes it's on a main road, but every place in this price range is. Would definitely stay over...

I turned up here at about 1am after another hotel did not honour our booking. As another reviewer notes, there is a large sign outside saying rooms are $85, however I think the guy knows when you arrive late that you aren't going to look around, so he offers $125 and then you have to argue a bit. I settled...

Of all the motels in town, we had to pick this one. A bit of elbow grease applied to the shower is needed, and the fridge urgently needs defrosting. We couldnt even put one esky block in the freezer. Very tired, but a good scrub and new bed linen would help.

It would be unfair to expect that a $100 motel room exceeded all expectations. It didn't. However, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom reasonably roomy, basic amenities are provided, and undercover parking outside the door made this an acceptable option for a short o/n stop. There are a lot of motels in this town and many of them seek to...

stopped in for a quick over night stay with a group of friends. Whilst discussing between the group if we needed two or one room the receptionist was pushy handing myself two keys to two rooms. I asked him to wait for a minute as we had not come to a conclusion. I was told repetitively to "come pay me...

Totally fine for $80-$100/night. Absolutely criminal that they charge $300/night for the most rundown looking room I've ever stayed in in a Western country. Our hotel double booked us so they found us accomodation here for a night. Seriously, for this type of money it is laughable.

Considering this motel was overpriced due to the xmas holidays it would only be far to rate it on the standard price range which is still overpriced. Friendly greeting with a price haggle (drop) which suited me. Comfortable and reasonably clean with all the bits and pieces. Did find scuffed cupboard doors and rusty outside bar fridge. A few loose...
