We loved this motel. It has a modern style and furniture, very clean, and comfortable. Great sleep quality. It is not right on the main road, keeping it away from traffic, but still right in the middle of the township, across the hot springs. Friendly people at the reception and a great BBQ place! We will definitely be back.

The best part about this motel's location is that the hot pools are right across it. We stayed for 2 nights and since we couldnt go out due to rains, we spent most of the time in the hot pools or in the motel room. The staff was very friendly; they have a huge collection of DVDs that you can... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. The apartment was a good size and had everything we needed, it was clean and tidy. The motel is situated on a quiet road a few minutes walk from the central area. There are a few bars/restaurants close to the motel. Would stay here again.

Highly recommended for anyone making the drive along the west coast. Pros: • Clean room • Friendly staff • Quiet • Just a short walk away from the best restaurant in town (Alice May) Cons: • The laundry room opening time is a bit short

We stayed in a Studio unit and a King Studio unit for 2 nights. And the units were really clean and spacious with everything we needed. Also, the staff at 58 On Cron Motel were extremely helpful, telling us everything we need to know or have while at Franz Josef Glacier. I would recommend anyone visiting Franz Josef Glacier to...

A clean and friendly motel with good laundry facilities and well equipped bedrooms. Easy parking and set back from main road - so quiet! Not basic, but does what it say on the tin. V. helpful staff. It has the bonus of being opposite the thermal pools too!

We chose 58 On Cron based on other online reviews. Franz Josef township is entirely a tourist town set up to service visitors to the nearby glacier. So a certain expectation is created simply based on location. We arrived late-ish, after a long drive and a couple of hours spent at nearby Fox Glacier. We were warmly welcomed, given a... More

Myself, my wife, and our 2 adult kids stayed here for 2 nights in Feb. 2014 in a 2 bedroom with one bath for around $250/night. This is a very clean, simple hotel. Anne, our host, is definitely the boss and I don't mean that in a negative way. She can help you with anything from where to eat to... More

As many people on Tripadvisor described this place as basic, we weren't expecting much and were wonderfully surprised. Anne at reception was lovely and VERY helpful (also booked our half day heli hike on the glacier).. The room is very nice. We had a king bed, tv, nice little kitchenette with fridge, microwave, hob, kettle, well fitted out with dishes,... More
