Have stayed before at this Motel so thought this would be good to revisit. Convenient close to public transport, plenty of restaurants locally. Disappointed - had a superior room (supposedly ) no mini bar fridge (although we BYO anyway) but the room was average, bed comfortable, requested extra pillows as only 2 in room for QS bed and extra towels...

After reading some pretty appalling reviews I admit I was not looking forward to staying at the Jika but had no other option. I do think it is over priced but when there is nothing else around I guess you can get away with that. I have to say I have found all the staff very friendly and helpful. Like... More

Very very basic, close to Melbourne. We were in the standard room and all furnitures are really old and basics. WiFi to be payed (10 $) and accessible to 2 devices. Breakfast still very very basics (bread, butter and few more). If you need a cheap solution to sleep and don't expect nothing more let's go for it. In any... More

Have stayed here many times over recent years due to handy location, but it has become so run-down that we will never stay here again. Room and furnishings were worn out, shabby, stained, neglected, broken. Everything reeked of cigarettes, including all bedding: made for a nauseating night. A/C had to be set at 30C. to produce a feeble warmth on... More

We stayed here in September 2011. Check in was fine - really nice front-desk staff. Area was well stocked with all the touristy brochures. The 24 hour reception service was very convenient especially with our early checkout. Plenty of off-street secure parking. Room was clean upon arrival and there was aircon and heating. No qualms at all with the room.... More

I love reading people's reviews of this place. I mean, what do you expect for $110 a night? Sure, it is basic but also clean and great value for the cost conscious traveller. My room was clean and simple. It came with complimentary shampoos, etc and tea and coffee making facilities. It is great to still have low priced, acceptable... More

We picked this hotel through American Express and were disappointed. The hotel was tired, the resturant only open for a continental breakfast and the daily cleaning room service sporatic. We stayed there 8 nights and some days the cleaning was well done and others days not completed at all. The location was ok, a 15 minute walk to the train... More

Basic but adequate...small room with queen and single bed, fridge, tv, kettle. Parking at the door. Breakfast (included) was limited but sufficient for a quick start to the day....cereals, toast, yogurt, juice, fruit salad. Conveniently located on main road.
