Good clean place. Value for money and was upgraded to newly refurbished room. Very clean and amble room. Location close to Maca, HJ, KFC and short drive to CBD. Will stay again on way back to Adelaide. Also now comes with continental breakup.

Booking was for a deluxe queen room, pretty sure that's not what we got, judging by the pictures posted. Seniors friendly? No, they weren't aware of that. Heater extremely noisy and failed to warm the room. They did supply a free standing heater that did warm the room eventually. Complimentary orange juice? None to be found. Room was clean.

Good morning Heather R, Thank you for taking time to review our motel and your constructive feedback. The accommodation you stayed in was our refurbished queen room. We do respect our senior travelers and appreciate their business. Seniors discount is offered to senior guests and is generally an industry 10% off the RACK RATE of the room type. Unfortunately we...

Clearly this motel is currently under renovation but that is absolutely no excuse for the room being rented out to be dirty. The fact that the rooms are out dated was not the troubling part of the, thankfully, one night stay. Glasses were dirty. Milk in the bottom on one, another had a crack all the way down the side...

WoW...this is a shock for not only management, but our very hard working housekeeping staff. I have to say I question your motives about placing such a nasty and questionable review on Trip Advisor and if you were so upset with your accommodation, then why did you not come to reception and advise our staff of your challenge? If this... More

Found the Smerdon on-line and got what we thought was a good deal in comparison with other 3 stars we have used as half-way stops (Adl/Melb). Counter staff were really good and gave us local maps and advised on local eateries - which proved good!!! Motel is a bit oldish(eg, A/C a bit noisy/clunky etc) but new management are progressively... More

I called up on the Friday lunch time on the Queens long weekend on the off chance there was a room available that night and also the possibility of a pet friendly room. The lady I spoke to was very helpful and booked a pet friendly room for my dog and I. Late check in was available as we only... More

Welcomed by friendly and very accommodating Craig at reception. All the refurbished rooms were taken so offered us another for $80. Linen is new and the room is tidy and clean. 2 bottles of complimentary water. I couldn't work the heating, so Craig came over and got a maintenance man and showed me what setting to put it on and...

Good unpretentious lodgings for a break in our trip, covering all the bases. On the highway but with quiet rooms, good access to city's facilities, obliging owners who are sprucing up the place. If you want a stopover that is basic, reasonably priced and very adequate, give this a try.

Just what we needed after a long, long day of traveling - a warm welcome from Craig and seamless, professional service to boot. From the time we walked in the door we felt right at home. Can't wait to see how the renovations look!
