This place was absolutely disgusting. We arrived and the man told us we had paid double the price as they didn't change it from the snow price and wouldn't do anything about it. The kitchen was dirty. Toaster looked like it had never been cleaned. There was 2 mugs and 2 bowels for 6 people, no glasses. A 3 seater... More

Budget indeed. The price is OK but you don't get real worth for the money. As earlier posted it's not clean. A clean but very old refrigerator without handle and two of the four knobs of the gas were missing. A good cleanup will help but if that will the job.....

We weren't expecting too much from our stay but it was good. They are updating their rooms and it was nice to have a full sized kitchen but the utensils were dated. It had a nice clean bathroom and clean floors throughout. It would be great to see an updated couch as the one we had was a bit old.... More

We chose this motel because of the price and had low expectations, given some of the reviews on TA. Initially given an upstairs room but that was cheerfully changed on request, although with a warning that it was in the older part of the motel that had been done up recently. What a pleasant surprise! Yes, the room is small... More

Whilst we knew this was a budget motel, the first impression wasn't good when the stairwell looked like it hadn't been swept or mopped for weeks. The apartment itself was basic but okay except for the lack of cleaning. The plate in the microwave was filthy and the top of the fridge was covered in a thick layer of dust.... More

What more could we say. We arrived in Cooma unexpectedly for a family funeral and decided this place to stay...As we made a n emergency trip from south coast of WA and not having time to return home for extras..The wonderful Cleaner offered to wash & dry our clothing for us while we were out and came home to it...

This motel in Cooma was budget friendly and perfectly adequate for an overnight stay. It was warm, clean, centrally located and had a very comfortable bed. The proprietor gave a friendly welcome and was helpful. If you prefer high specs this won't tick your boxes, but if you want a clean, comfortable, cheap overnight stay it will satisfy you.

We arrived in cooma at 10pm looking for a room for the night. We just wanted clean and comfortable. We called on our way there and got a room for $50! John the owner put the electric blanket on and heater on so the room was toasty. The room was basic but exactly what we needed, warm clean and comfy.... More

Great for a ski stopover when the kids are starting to drive you insane, it's only another 80km to Jindy. It was warm, cheap and our room was clean and non smelly. No restaurant, we walked into Cooma. Girl behind the desk was nice and helpful, cleaning staff are real characters and worth a chat.
