This I s is a cheap 2 star motel. Room was dirty, very tatty I felt. Air con did not work, com webs around it. Wood surfaces marked badly, paint and door dirty. I came with open mind but would not recommended at all. Free parking and Internet are the best points and proximity to city. Breakfast was also very... More

Excellent location and staff. Room was big and clean and an outside area where we had full facilities for our own meals. The price was very reasonable and affordable as we were on a tight budget. The managers Ivan and Joshua were extra friendly and helpful

Stayed her first for 3 nights in November 2013. Again chose the 3 night special. Single traveler. To me it was still good. Clean rooms, nice bed and linen and a good shower and bathroom. Free wifi and free onsite parking. Would be fine for a couple. I stayed week nights and evenings were quiet. Reception and cleaning staff were... More

Stayed here for 6 nights. Would possibly stay again. Motel is a little bit old, but it provided what we needed for our stay. Bed was very comfortable and had great sleeps!

This hotel is very reasonably priced. Of course, that means that you cannot expect any miracles, but it's a decent place for the price. Staff was very helpful, they let us check in without any trouble though we arrived around 2am (and even waived the fee for late arrival). The room was spacious and clean. What bothered us was that...

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was clean & comfortable. The door-less shower was a little odd, as others have pointed out, but the hot water was plentiful & we didn't mind a wet floor. The staff was very friendly. A minor negative is that the room window looks out onto the interior courtyard. As we had a... More

I picked this motel for it’s location and using the reviews on this site, thought it was worth taking a risk on. I could not have been more wrong! The manager was helpful and friendly when I reminded him I had requested a ground floor room and no stairs. (he had been observed going upstairs to check if our room... More

Stayed at Garden Lodge for 9 days last month. Wanted a place close to the city for work and departure for overseas trip. Although located right on Parramatta road I did not find traffic noise an issue. Found staff helpful and no problems with wifi. Location is near to Norton street and other good eateries. Room was clean.

We are presently staying for 5 nights and was looking for an economical place near the city. The Garden Lodge is located within a short walk to either the light rail or the train into Sydney. It is an older hotel with indoor corridors and windows that face into an enclosed atrium. There is a door to a small balcony... More

The motel is on a very busy road, but if you get a room at back, there is no noise (except for the planes flying over - on a flight path to Sydney Airport. The rooms are quite large for a motel and adequately appointed - even if it is the minimum. The room is clean if well worn. We... More
