I was booked into this large ~200 room motel for work as I was attending a conference at the Crown Convention Centre. The motel is only a 20 to 25 min walk from Crown Casino, Convention Centre and Theatre so the location was convenient for the conference. It is on the other side of the river to Perth CBD, but...

I stayed here for one night after arriving into Australia at Perth. Good location and excellent staff. A short walk to a couple of decent restaurants...loads of free parking too. Nice rooms with decent bathrooms.

Unfortunately I see so many people bagging the Great Eastern Motor Lodge! Not only does the Great Eastern offer very reasonable prices but their rooms are clean, maintained regularly, the housekeeping staff lead by a very capable young lady called Linda leave nothing to chance. We have found that should you require anything at all (within reason) all you have... More

Firstly due to the mining boom there is little value for money in this beautiful city. The boom is very much slowing down but nobody has told the hoteliers this yet. 2 nights in March for a double room cost $170 per night w/o breakfast. It is easy access for the airport and not far from the city by car... More

This Motor Lodge has everything from simple single rooms to family suites and spa units. It is just a short taxi trip from the airport, within walking distance to the Perth casino, and adjacent to a small shopping complex (red rooster, subway, pizza, Mexican, IGA and cafe). The rooms are clean and depending on the style have cooking implements. All... More

Lucky it was only for a night. Overpriced, nil room service. They provide you with a half carton of milk on arrival at reception if you wish to have tea & coffee in your room. Which you have no idea how long it has been sitting there for. Bathroom small. Bed ok. Noisy .

Stayed in a single room for 2 nights. Uncomfortable bed, No cups in the room. Noisy corridor. Take away shops near by, average food quality. Look elsewhere unless desperate or over-nighting. Close to the airport, 10 mins.

This is a motel and you get everything you would expect in a motel. Yes it is noisy. For one it's near the airport, 2 truckers stop there overnight. Forgiving that the rooms are nice size, kitchenette, small bathroom. They are clean and provide toiletries. The room as foxtel (movies bonus). There is a pool onsite, however haven't ventured to...

Walls are paper thin. Staff unhelpful. Bed sheets unclean. Horrible dinner in the "sister" restaurant down the road. No room service or anyway to get food after 830 or before 6. Carpet feels like many cigarettes have been burned into it. Wifi is unreliable and expensive. Traces of mice in the room. It's close the to airport, which at least... More

We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment. Clean rooms, and furnished sufficiently for a safe and comfortable stay. No laundry facilities in the apartment but kitchen was spacious. The toilet was big and comes with double sink. Big carpark. There was a food vending machine in the hotel ground, and drinks and food boxes could be purchased from it. We were... More
