The place looked fine online and in the dark but after check in you drive to your room around the corner and soon notice broken down cars and junk laying around like old mattresses old lounge cushions and car trailers. The pool was full of water but has a lovely green mouldy looking thing growing on its walls. Not sure... More

We arrived around 8pm and left around 6am the following morning. The front house staff were very lovely (the 2 ladies we met). The room was clean, nice towels, a little kitchen & fridge. Great location, minutes away from the mall, grocery store & train. Very quiet, great for a one night stay.

Whole room in urgent need of proper clean. No cutlery, good location good sized room. Visit spoilt by dirty conditions. Wouldn't stay there again. Crumbs in bed. Was this by... More

Having read the previous Trip Advisor bad comments re this hotel, we were delighted to see that under new management, this hotel turned out to be very comfortable. Despite being on a major highway, it was very quiet on a Saturday night. Outdoor swimming pool.We had a big room, queen size bed with comfortable Actil sheets. Also a toaster, microwave,... More

I wish I had read these reviews before I booked. I have traveled extensively both in Australia and overseas, in hotels, motels and B&Bs. Never have I found a place so tatty or dirty. There was dust, moth holes in the curtains and the shower and bathroom were filthy. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

Property has been refurbished and comments posted do not reflect the current state of the Motel. Most comments are from the previous manager time who has been dismissed. Owner has taken control as of 01 December 2011 and can guarantee guests quality accommodation. Owner More

Good grief, what can I say about this place other than DON'T DO IT!!!! Turn around and go to ANY of the other Motel's in the area. Heck, sleep on the beach if you need to. I guarantee it will be better than this place. After booking a couple of nights through an online booking service, I ventured in and... More
