Booked 2 rooms for family of 5. Both rooms were old and worn and totally outdated..bad smell to both rooms.beds were not comfy. As much as it is a budget motel i would rather pay extra and stay elsewhere.. 3 min walk to hungry jacks was best thing about it.stripped one bed to find a disgusting stained underlay..

Stayed there for one night and won't be going again. Rooms were clean enough but dated and noisy from the car park. Air conditioner unit outside was so noisy it was difficult to sleep so ended up turning it off and the curtains must have cost them $10.00.

When you book into a cheap motel a week for the Clipsal weekend only a week before you don't expect much. But the bed was comfortable the air conditioner worked when it was 36 degrees outside and the shower was OK. It was clean although the bathroom fittings very old and crazed, clean none the less. Reception was extremely polite...

We stayed here for 5 nights during the Clipsal 500. Was not expecting to have such run down dirty and uninviting rooms First thing I did when we arrived on a 36 degree day was clean the Air conditioner filters out from cakes of dust and lint so the Air cons could actually breath and do there job. Mouldy bathrooms,...

Room was clean. Bed was comfortable BUT there were no clothes hangers. There was a microwave but no plates, bowls or cutlery apart from a couple of teaspoons and cups. What is the point of having a microwave if you've got nothing to eat with? Ok, I accept that I could have gotten some, however, there are no shops nearby....

Dear Debbiemsg, Thanks for taking the time to review our motel. My apologies that your stay wasn't as good as it could have been, As of last week we have started replenishing the coat hangers around the property and soon should have the hangers back in each room so other guests should not have this issue. We have decided to...

Went here for a wedding. The location was nice and close to everything we needed to get to in Adelaide. In terms of price, I paid $150 for two nights, for a single room, which was alright. I knew it wasn't going to be anything fancy. The first thing that struck me was the extreme smell of air freshener in...

Hi Furredesign, Thanks for taking the time to write your review. First i would like to apologise for the air freshner extravaganza, The housekeeping supervisor is trained to apply one spray of our air freshner to make the room more inviting on entry but it seems they may have been a little trigger happy on that day. I have already...
