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

Fourth floor, balcony, and 10min from Perth or the airport. We booked a superior room which made it easier when friends came over for drinks. Good value for money and doesn't try to be more than it is. Stayed there a few times over the decade.

This one was a last minute booking because of travel changes. Just $14 taxi ride from the Perth airport and the only one that answered its phone, the reception fellow was informative, kind and cheerful. I was happy to find the accommodation and hotel in good shape, clean and surprisingly quiet. No restaurant but cooked breakfast to my room was... More

I stayed here for 7 nights through work but would be pressed to recommend for families or couples. No restaurant and mainly filled with fifo workers doing inductions or for flight connections. Some rooms have balconies and most have kitchenetts. Wifi costs were too expensive. Better off to purchase a pre paid and use your own. For over $140 it... More

My review may be biased considering I had one of the greatest nights of my life here, but from an objective standpoint this motel delivered good service to me. I booked for one night on the website. They had a drop down menu for you to select your time of arrival which I found useful. Parking was free! Check in... More
