You get what you pay for! Close walk to mall and Win stadium. Terrible shower. Uncomfortable beds and the cleaning staff come into your room before checkout time to collect towels to wash. They knock once and don't give you a chance to open the door before they've walked in.

Old and tired but clean enough. This could definately do with a bit of paint, new carpet and a modern touch and it would be ok to be rated as 3 stars, but I think it's more like a 2 star. Ok for overnight stay.

staff friendly, clean sheets but I would not stay more than one night. Couldn't not sleep for the life of me because of the traffic noise, really bright lights in walk way near the apartments so the light is in your room allllllllll night. The water system is loud too when other rooms use water we would hear it all.... More

Stayed here for work this week. Booked as was cheap and cheap it was. Photos make place look half decent but wow, could really do with a freshen up. Very basic furniture and as for the TV, was smaller than a computer monitor. Internet was free but a voucher only allowed 30min then would stop. Back to reception for another... More

I stay at this hotel about 4 times a year, I have never felt the need to look elsewhere, for the price you get a clean room with all expected features. The biggest draw card for me is it's location and the staff are never put out by me turning up later than expected, It has a 'family run business'... More

We learnt a excellent lesson with the choice of this motel. We followed the a pamphlet picked up at a wild life park which advertised motels in Wollongong. We were in the area looking at the sights on a weekend before moving on. We drove to the first motel which has no vacancy, we then rang the next two in... More

Perfectly convenient if you just need a stopover in Wollongong as the bed and bathroom are clean and comfortable enough and there is plenty of parking space. Worth knowing that it is a way out from the centre of town and that breakfast does not appear to be available though.

Great location in the centre of wollongong, very friendly and great sevice. As we were in town for a birthday we found our room to be clean and tidy with a queen size bed and balcony just what we needed for a overnight stay. Close to shops, pubs and a westfield only a 10 min drive. We would definitely stay... More

My friends and I stay here for the Santa claws pub crawl around Wollongong. The staff were welcoming and very helpful at 3am when a few lost their keys to the room. The rooms we're what we expected from a 3 star hotel and very clean!
