We had stayed at the Econo Lodge previously, and although basic accommodation, it provides a decent base when flying in for the weekend. (airstrip within a couple of Kms). The rooms are spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable, the furnishings still rather dated. It is very reasonably priced at $85 per night. The new owners seemed keen... More

A very tired and old motel which needs lots of TLC. The price was far too expensive for what it was. The rooms are large ,with very little comforts in them. The outside grounds are a disgrace, the pool not working, the paths need washing to get rid of the bird poo every where. Grass needs mowing etc. A lot... More

Stayed with my family in April 2013, arrived late and was accommodated. This is a remote area and the accommodation is basic. This is about the level of accommodation you would expect for such an area. We went to the hotel for tea which was fish and chip type stuff and full of fat. When we got up in the... More

I don't know what the other people are complaining about. Try staying at a real 3 star motel/hotel! This was so clean and had been re-painted and had other things fixed up. Manager was friendly. Offered us a voucher to the pub down the road. I personally didn't like the food but my partner did. I ordered fish and chips... More

John made me feel so welcome. The room was outstanding. I met a few other people staying at EconoLodge and they loved the atmosphere too. It was cold in Kingston but the heating was awesome. I would like to go back in Summer so that I could lax by the pool with a beer or two. Econolodge is located near... More

Old and neglected and smelly. My husband has just recovered from a heart attack. He was too upset, to stay in the room. Unfortunately we have paid in advance and lost 109 dollar. Would not recommend this motel, which we have booked thru Hotel Club. We moved in a clean motel in the same town.

I Travel a lot for work, staying in many hotels/motels, however this little motel in the south-east would be my favourite. Owners John and Di are extremely nice and welcoming... I've stayed here 5 times for the south east field days, and after rocking up in a singlet and shorts they both stilled remembered who I was by name. It's... More

We stayed at this friendly motel at Christmas Day. It turns out, all Australia is closed that day and no chance to get a dinner. The owners were so lovely and prepared tasty sandwiches for us! Thank you so much! The pricing is ok and the room had everything we needed for one night.

A group of aviators chose this accommodation due to its proximity to the Kingston airfield and stayed here for 1 night, booking 5 rooms. The rooms are basic but clean, the bed was very comfortable, the shower water was hot and there was no noise and best of all it is very reasonably priced.The owner was very obliging and taxied...

old and tired. everything needs an update. turned on box air con and it was so noisy we couldn't hear the old box tv which is perched on the paint chipped bench. right next to the faded tan leatherette chairs. this place really needs freshening up. not a huge cost, just some effort.
