Front house staff were very pleasant and helpful. We were able to leave our car in car park while overseas for no extra cost which was great. Bed was comfortable. The room was old and dated however and the shower pitiful.

I stayed here for two nights and I found it quit nice. The service was very nice & friendly from all staff both in reception and in the restaurant. My room was large with a very comfortable bed and pillows, plus the place was also clean.

Our rooms were well appointed, quiet and comfortable. The staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Unfortunately, we were there for a funeral, staying one night. Not only did they offer to store our bags while we were at the funeral, they also offered us a room to freshen up and change if we wanted to before our... More

We stayed over Anzac weekend for two nights. From the photos online it looked nice but that was far from the truth. From what I gather we stayed in one of the older rooms (I had no idea there was an option of one of refurbished rooms) the room itself was very run down, hot, small and dirty. We had... More

This is a relatively old hotel that has gone through some great renovations. The room I stayed in was very bright and airy with a comfortable chair a round table and a desk to work at. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was quite large with the only downfall being the shower in the bath which was quite cramped... More

I absolutely loved staying at Auto Lodge Motor Inn. The rooms are lovely, they have a washing machine and the facilities are great. However it is the staff that make us go back there. From reception, kitchen, bar staffn waitresses both morning and night to the builders and painters that were doing odd jobs. They're all friendly, super approachable and... More

We got upgraded to one of the newly redecorated suites that had a view of the sea which was awesome. We had a studio room with a queen bed and single for our daughter with ample room for us all. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Was a bit chilly to use the pool but it looked very... More

I stayed three nights while attending a conference at the Devon hotel across the road. I chose Autolodge because the rate was cheaper than the conference venue of the Devon. I assumed I would get an inferior room to my colleagues because I had paid less. Not so. On arrival I was told I had been upgraded to a superior... More

Stayed two nights for work. Front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room itself was a studio, clean, but showing its age. My workmates room had peeling wallpaper etc. My bedside lamp didn't work, and none of the free TV channels on the office channels offered worked either. That aside, I still enjoyed my stay here. The room... More
