I stayed with my family for a night to visit carnival city. Its a reasonably priced hotel with good amneties. They should put an elevator for easy access of rooms. Rooms were small and crammed. The views of the carnival city were nice. The reception area is small and not cosy. Would definitely stay there again. .. strangely

Rooms, beds and toilets should be physically accessible to wheelchair users. I think porter or reception clerks should be trained or made aware of guests using wheelchairs to be booked on a friendlier used or physically accessible rooms. The front entrance was also not accessible. I hope you'll improve these areas cause I am member of Disable People South Africa... More

I stayed at the Carnival City Road Lodge with my spouse, for one night. The staff were very friendly and checking in was a breeze. We stayed in a non-smoking double room. Whilst the room was not big, it served its purpose as a quick place to rest our heads. The room was spotless and we could see that attention... More

As we all know, the Road Lodge is aimed at the budget travel market and it achieves that purpose. The hotel is well kept, clean and the staff are friendly and curteous. Well pitched at the rate charged. The breakfast was also average (no bacon :-) ) and there was enough to have, but the coffee machine makes horrible coffee.... More

Although very conveniently located next to the Carnival City, this hotel is not exactly 3 stars! The rooms are very small, a tiny shower tary, and have a tiny 14inch TV that shows only 4 channels. There is no high speed internet in any rooms. You can get wi-fi in the lobby area only up to 9.00 pm. The strangest... More
