Stayed here Feb 2014. Last minute thing. Room was interesting to say the least, something out of a bad movie. A mish mash of colours and patterns. Not very clean. Could hear the trucks out on the main road as well as people at 7am outside the windows talking loudly. Was going to stay 2nd night as we were exhausted... More

I loved my stay at the Bananatown Motel. The new staff said that they moved in only a couple of days ago and were very friendly. Before when i came to this motel in 2009 the rooms were horrible and the staff were not friendly and were not at the reception on time. The new management team have changed the... More

As someone has already noticed this motel is fabulous because of the new management team. I stayed here for one night; traffic didn't disturb me, staff were really friendly and everything was nice and clean. They had all the kitchen facilities that you need (seriously you not gonna live there so a fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and loads of tea,... More

Only an overnight stay on the way to Sydney. Took up 2 adjoining rooms - we only slept there as we were visiting relatives. Easy to find and good exit back out onto the Pacific Highway. Reception service excellent. $170 per night for the 5 of us but we had self catering accommodation right in Sydney for $200 per night... More

Old and worn unit that looked very tired and extremely dirty. The once pink verticals were now a dull shade of grey with dirt you could scrape off. The ceiling fan had a centimetre of dirt covering the blades, the walls had cobwebs hanging from the corners, and a badly stained lounge. Complimentary toiletries were limited to one small soap.We...

We stayed two nights in the Bananatown Motel. We were looking for somewhere cheap to sleep as we had plans to fill our days. Accomodation was very budget, while the bed was ok the pillows were very old and, on closer inspection, grossly stained. The bathroom was functional. The service was great with the lady serving us offering plenty of... More

Not sure where to start here. Floppy soft bed with polyester floral quilt on top, lumpy pillows. Ugly outdated bathroom. Kettle that was black inside when I took the top off to fill it. Ugly bare brick walls. Worn pink towels laid in a fan pattern on the bed with little packet soaps on. And right next to the Pacific... More

Bananatown Motel is right on the Pacific Highway which is the road which connects Sydney and Brisbane (Grafton Street is a small entry road for a line of motels along the Pacfic Highway). We basically chose it because they were advertising a rate of $75 per night for a double room, we were super tired after a long trip up... More
