This is the budget lodge and is part of the City Lodge Group. The rooms are around $50 per night. Clean and functional, a little noisy, but not unbearable, it is after all on a busy main road. Breakfasts are nothing fancy, if you want fresh fruit, toast, preserves, cereal, and scrambled eggs with sausage thats what is on offer.... More

The room facilities are average, but don't bother asking reception for anything! On enquiry about what we could do during the day I asked about the botanical gardens and was told there were none, however the Durban Botanical Gardens are 3.5km down the road. If you ever want to get anywhere, it would probably be easier and quicker to walk.... More

I have stayed here often. Seems the last time they paid any attention to the maintenance was just before my first visit, oh, eight years ago. No longer cheap, clean and convenient - now it's just cheap. Unless, of course, you ask the hotel to do your laundry. That's ridiculously expensive. Plus: I gave them four items, and they lost...

A great deal for someone just looking for a cheap deal. The Road Lodge is one of the hotels under the City Hotel corporation and I believe is their most basic variety. Chains are not common outside the cities in South Africa and bed & breakfasts are the most common type of lodging. Road Lodge was very basic but just... More

Road lodge is the most basic hotel from this chain, it has a small room with no frills. Everything is clean so for just a night of sleep no problem. If you are looking for a bit more fancy place to stay choose another memeber of the chain like city lodge or garden court. Breakfst was OK, again nothing special.... More

We had a Towers Suite so we didn't have the problem with the space nor the glass partition. Great room, very large bathroom and spacious. Small balcony with no chairs outside it was too noisy anyway to sit out there, I will explain, as you can expect South Africa is frantically trying to spruce the place up as like they... More

In true Road Lodge style, this hotel was good value for money. The rooms are typically small but the staff is friendly and the accommodations are clean. The location of this hotel is the only downfall. We spent a lot of money on taxis traveling to and from Morningside where we could find restaurants and pubs. There was very little... More
