We enjoyed our stay at the motel, our room was large and had every thing we needed for a family of 3 adults and 3 children 1 of whom they let stay for free, it was the cheapest motel by far in the whole of the city and in a good location. We will stay there again for the price... More

This was our second visit. This time under new management. Nothing had been fixed, replaced, repaired or even painted since our previous visit of twelve months ago. The ceilings were still damp and mouldy, and the three rooms we had were damp. Broken latches on doors, extremely poor heating etc. The beds we two singles pushed together....etc etc etc We... More

Hamilton was booked out for Field Days and this place was all we could book. It costs $450 for the one room for the night. Beds were supposed to be x2 doubles and x2 singles as it was for our workers. When they got there the room had only three beds, and one pull down! Not good enough for four... More

First impression from the outside I knew instantly I was not going to enjoy my stay, inside the décor and carpets only reinforce my view! What drew me to this accommodation was the "extra large spa pool" and it did not disappoint. We were a family of 6 including 4 children and booked the family room which had 2 separate... More

Free wifi, full kitchen, separate bedroom, clean, convenient, seniors rate and $85 a night. What more could we want! Not flash, but friendly service and we were told we could pay when we left - how many motel owners would trust their guests so much? Highly recommended.

Did not really meet expectations created by web advertising. The service was fine, but the room and buildings are not really up to much. The are dated and not particularly clean. Things in the room were mixed in terms of what worked and what didn't. We were not greatly impressed and would not go back. As for price it was... More

Just came back from a trip to Hamilton staying overnight at Cedar Lodge Motel. What a big difference from the other place across the road which charged us $100 for just the two of us. We thought to try a different place and decided on Cedar Lodge Motel. We were not disappointed. Value for money, fresh clean linens, spacious, full... More

Quite an old motel but very spacious unit. Plenty cutlery and crockery for our group. Great to be able to cook dinner every nite in our unit. Unit could do with a make over as curtains rather dated. Didnt try spacious spa. Parking outside unit was great.
