The Tower Motel is decent, clean accommodation with plentiful free parking. We stayed here for one night to watch the Foo Fighters and I would have been happy to stay longer. We were expecting a room with a double bed and a single and got one with a double and two singles, which was a nice surprise and perfect for... More

Not a bad place to stay; but a bit tired and not very clean. Fortunately it was at the lower end in terms of pricing and that is why we chose it. But like most things, you get what you pay for. A good spring clean would probably entice me to return; but not otherwise (unless I was desperate)

Very nice pleasant place. Wife and I stayed here a while back, very pleasant area, plenty of room in the accomodation, good people running the show. No fuss, simple good cheap accommodation. Recommend this to anyone in need of decent clean accommodation in Hobart.

Happy that the staff were able to help out with the motel shuttle the next day, although you have to head to the next corner in order to take it. On top of a hill so reasonably easy to find and not as far away from the city as I thought. Room itself adequate for my needs.

Stayed at the Tower Motel for one evening as I was going out with friends in the city. Location is not central but for the price I paid was worth having a bed and warm room for the night. Not the cleanest place but had everything I needed. Great to have electric blankets on the bed!

Stayed at the motel for 4 nights with friends in 2009, It was good. The room was clean and tidy with plenty of space and parking space too. The people were very friendly and helpful. If you want to spend time with friends I would definitely recommend.

Easy to find, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Was accommodated at the back which was quiet. Staff helpful, clean small room and breakfast available. Unfortunately, having three beds in the room made it a little crowded.

Average basic 3 star hotel. Room was clean but furnishings are shabby and outdated. Bathroom with basic amenities provided. Room has a small fridge and tea making facilities. No WiFi in the room but is available in the reception area. This property is not suitable for those without their own transport as there are no shops or restaurants close by... More

Hairs everywhere, dirty walls, stained sheets, Missing paint and a toilet that looks like it belonged in a jail! and so loud we could not sleep, we could hear upstairs walking and jumping around...
