I am not known for negative reviews and I remain a great supporter of the City Lodge Group but I was greatly disappointed by the service I received a this particular Road Lodge. My pillows even smelt like smoke and I couldn't sleep from all the noise from inconsiderate fellow travellers. I've never had this problem before at City Lodge... More

The Road Lodge Johannesburg is just a very short shuttle ride from OR Tambo airport. It is a very, very basic hotel, but always consistently clean and great friendly service. Room and bathroom are small, but for a quick overnight between flights, it's only about USD55. Clean, safe secure and a good night's sleep. Can't ask for more and a... More

Small, clean rooms, perfect for the overnight stay especially on layover or stopover - or travellers wanting a clean bed, hot shower on a budget. Priced appropriately too. I walked in at 10pm without prior booking, didn't seem full. TVs are the old models ie not flatscreen, are small but have major channels in SA. I didn't try the breakfast,... More

Quick easy, quiter than closer to airport Good secure parking No frills but clean functional and ver reasonable particularly compared to extra cost for minimal extra benefit at more up market hotels near the airport. Close to Gautrain Rhodesfield station so easy access to Sandton

Stayed here on a brief overnight between flights and it worked, but nothing stood out. The rooms are tiny but clean, the parking is secure and there is a small breakfast area provided they have food. Be wary of the shuttle though, they don't run nearly as often as promised and took nearly 2hrs to pick me up from the... More

On business trips to Johannesburg, I normally stay at the Town Lodge located just around the corner from it's lesser cousin. Noise late at night and early mornings was a problem, with banging doors, loud TV's and rowdy visitors. On the 2nd day I asked to be moved further away from the stairwell, but it made little difference in terms... More

Our Lufthansa was 11hrs late and needed just some hours of sleep before +1000km drive. This is not fancy hotel, but good motel for some hours of sleep. Safe parking for rented car. Shower with hot water. Room is not big, but all sq.m:s are sensible used.

Good enough hotel for an overnight. Comfortable bed unless you're tall. Hot shower. Feels safe. Shuttle every half an hour for less than regular taxis departs from behind the car rentals. Good breakfast if you're early enough. At 8.30 eggs and fruit are nearly finished. Professional reception and reservation system.

The best thing about the hotel is that it feels safe with a 24 hour reception and a gates around the premises. The room was very small and looked clean at the beginning but after folding out the sleeping chair we noticed that the cleaning was not very thorough. Only the visible parts are being cleaned. Shower and bathroom were... More

This was the cheapest hotel that was close to the airport, which was the only reason we chose it. I've stayed at Road Lodges before, and knew what to expect, but this was the worst one I've stayed at. The check in process took forever, as there was only one person working at reception, and there were four people in... More
