This motel does not pretend to be anything other than a place to stay over, especially if doing other activities in the area. It's possibly not the best place if you plan to stay in your room. For the price it provided me with a comfortable night's sleep (Fri night) and the option to walk up to the Wollongong Diggers... More

I had been invited to a birthday party in Wollongong and chose to stay at the Downtown as it was very close to the party's venue. The motel is difficult to locate from Crown Street (had to drive around the block 3 times before I found it). The Receptionist was both courteous and friendly and I was given the ground... More

We stayed at this motel two years ago - they have replaced the TVs with new ones (probably because of the change to digital) the rooms have not been upgraded as far as we can see and the balcony leading to room is rusty and had pieces of timber nailed to rail to prevent it from breaking away. The hair... More

The carpet was stained, the bed linen pillow cases appeared to not have been changed i.e. stained and smelly despite the fact they had pressed creases in them
