My girlfriend and I are currently staying at the Downtown Motel. It has been clean and is a handy location to Wollengong Central. However, there is a lot of noise from the restaurant/bar to the side of the building and there is a club behind the motel - sleeping here is very difficult!

This motel is right in the middle of town. Absolutely a perfect location We were offered a choice of two rooms, the cheapest at the front we were told could be noisy. We chose the more expensive quieter room at the back. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful. Parking is in an enclosed parking area behind a security barrier.... More

A clean aged motel in lower crown street, that is still great value for money. The staff are very friendly . But it all come with a catch don't stay Friday or Saturday nights. All the young party night club goers stay there due to its central location. Didn't get to sleep till 430 am Saturday night due to loud... More

The best thing about this motel is the location. It is close to everything you need in Wollongong. It is a little difficult to locate if you don't know the area however. We found everything adequate for an overnight stay, but it would not be my choice for a longer holiday. The staff were pleasant, which is a big plus.... More

Stayed here for one night whilst attending a function close by. Unpretentious 60's style motel still with the original decor including bedspreads! It's like you've gone back in time but it's cheap, clean enough, has a bar fridge, tea/coffee and a toaster (obviously no breakfast room here) TV, ensuite etc. I slept well, no street noise and the reception staff...

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

Stayed here one night, suited our needs, very close proximity to WIN Stadium, 5 min walk. City centre close by, along with cafe’s, restaurants and pubs. Hotel is dated but room was clean, bed linen fresh and towels large and fluffy. Beds were comfy. Secure off street parking behind electronice gate. Hair dryer was broken, it worked but the hose...
