Having stayed at the Great Eastern Motor Lodge a few times, we tended to try out different rooms depending on number of people we had. It is in a fantastic location with public transport right at the door stop to take you into the city. Rooms are always clean and comfortable. The staff are always helpful and friendly often accommodating... More

Perfect location, close to everything in Perth city, casino, parks, river, hwys, and train line. Great pool, very cheap for a fully self contained motel for families. Staff were great booking us in on the spot and straight to our room.

After nearly forty years of global travel for the mining industry, I can honestly say, I have stayed in the best and the worst accommodation in the World. Everything from Five Star luxury hotels to a tent without the essentials for weeks in mining camps in outback Africa. Because I have purposely developed a positive attitude to life, I use... More

Stayed here 1 night, a brief overnight booked by another party on my behalf - glad it wasn't longer. Tragic, tired, dirty, worn and decrepit would about sum up this place. I didn't think Motels still existed where they still use synthetic blankets and bedspreads, and the carpet looked like it had been relocated from the publicv bar of a... More

Sorry you were not happy with your stay at the Great Eastern Motor Lodge. This review is disappointing, as we pride ourselves in offering clean,spacious and affordable self-contained accommodation. This business has been under the same management for over 30 years and our rooms are refurbished on a regular basis (5 - 7 years). In fact, since your review we... More

Being from the northwest I called to make a booking just 100mtrs away but was refused because I put a couple of reviews about the motel being rubbish and a particular staff member treating staff and clients rudely but I am so glad I was not able to stay there because I stayed at the Great Eastern Motor Lodge and...

Stayed overnight before flying out from Perth. Expensive for the very generic facilities. Room was large but very small shower. Bedcover looked worn and tired. It is much further than I realised from the airport. Only real asset is being close to the river- very pretty walk with numerous birds to be seen. Wouldn't stay again- would even go into... More

Wonderful place to stay, staff try very hard to help and no question is too silly, clean tidy rooms, surprisingly quiet being on a highway, from their basic room to their superior room to their spa suites all great value for money, easy car parking, it also has a lift for those who may struggle with stairs, I'm lucky enough...

We arrived un- announced as had been staying at another motel nearby which was crap! The Great Eastern Motor Lodge went out of their way to help us. They even upgraded us to a 2 bedroom fully self contained unit for the same price as a motel room! We had an oven, saucepans, plates, cups, cutlery, full sized fridge, air... More
