This motel is in need of some modernisation but it has everything you need for a pleasant stay. A very spacious room (we booked a 1-bedroom unit and found 2 double beds + a single bed, plenty of space!). Kitchen and bathroom were clean even though there was dust in the bedroom and some spiderwebs in some corners of the... More

It was a very pleasant stay. I originally only wanted to stay 4 nights but extended to 6 as Hamilton is a nice base to explore the surroundy country. The motel was clean, quiet and centrally located. The staff was very kind and helpful The place could need a little modernization here and there but everything was in working order... More

the two rooms we booked were very functional for an overnight stay. Lino was a little tired in the bathrooms and could use with updating. we enjoyed our stay there and not sure why this motel did get negative feedback from some travelers as the beds were comfortable and we all had a good nights sleep.

The place has been let go. Unit was tired & limited in supplies/utensils etc. No cleaning behind doors etc, & we found rubbish from previous guests left in a wardrobe. Staff were friendly, & the price was cheap, so it's a case of you get what you pay for.

Seems the manager runs the motel and diary across the road as well, all at the same time. The motel is old, and would be ok at normal prices but we were there for Fieldays, and were paying over twice the normal price per night. We were here for 5 nights .Room took a while to heat up and all... More

Now owned by friendly but dodgy proprietors of the Ulster Motor Lodge across the road. Stove elements not working, oven suspect. Missing glassware, cutlery & kitchen utensils. Cleaniness standards have really slipped as we are regular patrons down thru many years. Happy to pay more, move on & stay somewhere better next time.

I was kind of surprised by this place; looked a little dodgy when we pulled up but when we asked to look at the room we were surprised that it was virtually a 2 bedroom apartment. The room was a little old and desperately needed a makeover, but everything was clean and worked. One thing of note was the surprising... More

Staff were helpful and friendly. Furnishings were a little dated but the beds were extremely comfortable and the motel was super clean. Very convenient location a block from the supermarket and on edge of cbd. We would stay there again for sure. Was worth the phone call ahead to get a great price for a family group :)
