Reviewed 21 September 2017

Although the location is great, we didn't enjoy our stay here. We stayed during the week in mid September and it was $88 which seemed liked good value until we got to our rooms (we had room 108) which smelt like stale kitty litter / piss. We got there very late so didn't ask to change as the hotel was full.

Take note that the bed is only a double, not queen, which was quite small for a couple. Our toilet tilted and nearly fell off the wall when we sat on it. The fridge also froze all our food.

Breakfast was passable with fruit, coffee, packaged pastry and cereal. Although the staff and location were good, we'd recommend finding elsewhere.

The hotel is careful not to show a picture of the outside. Its a nasty cheap hotel, with all kinds of not very nice people staying there. We were woken at 6.00 am by rock music blaring at full blast from the room on one side. When they had then stopped (as we banged on the wall) the man upstairs started screaming at his partner, saying his weed and wallet had been stolen from the car parked outside the room. This place did not feel safe. The rooms were tatty, bits of plaster chipped off the walls etc. The main bedroom didn't even have a wardrobe? For the amount of rooms, the breakfast area is tiny, totally inadequate. Would not stay here again in a million years.

Room Tip: Dont stay there

We stayed in motels ate whole trip. All cheap all good value.

It was friendly, clean and affordable exactly what we needed for 1 night on the road. Didn't stay for breakfast so I can't comment. The location is brilliant. Close to everything. I would stay there again.

Real basic older style motel, which could do with some TLC.
Crappy cheap threadbare towels, marginally clean room, smallest cakes of soap known to man, stinky fridge in room 104. Really basic continental breakfast ( no toast or bread available) after 8am!!!!
In saying all the above, the people who work there are very friendly and you couldn't beat the location. There is a great little Mexican restaurant across the street and a good coffee shop right next door, so all in all it isn't a bad place to stay for a night, if you want a short walk to everything.

It was so dirty and horrible hotel for $230 for night!! Everything is dirty and old. There was many hears at the floor and in the bathroom. Walls at bathroom have mold!! If you will get it in yours lungs, you will get very hard sick! Everything inside need rebuild!! You can see it on pics. Bed clothes and pillows are so dirty and old, pillows are yellow. Carpet has born spots from cigarettes. Never vacuums. This is the worst place at the world!!!!! But it has nice pics on booking.com. It's just pics. Ventilation is not working in bathroom. Water is not drain from tub and sink. This hotel room is not suitable for life! This hotel must be closed before fix all problems. WiFi is not working.
