Very comfortable, lovely and clean but it was the service that made it stand out. Used it on a business trip and we were made to feel welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. Warm and friendly people.

As a host Hogan was very accommodating and showed a very high standard of hospitality. The room was lovely clean and well appointed. And the location of the motel was perfectly situated for us to be able to access the LDS temple and the CBD

We had a group of 6 staying for 2 nights in the large family room. We arrived and were shown to our room by the motel owner who is so friendly and hospitable. Our room was large and spacious and included 2 bathrooms and kitchenettes which was excellent for our group. The beds were comfortable and there were lots of... More
