Reception was friendly. We had a very clean, new 1 bedroom apartment for 2 adults and 2 teens. Was expecting a sleeper couch so was nice to have a double bed ,even though it was in the lounge, and 2 singles in the bedroom. Was even a BBQ outside but you could walk to the most amazing little restaurant just... More

During our time in Franz Josef we stayed two nights at the 58 On Cron Motel. The motel is quite modern and clean. Hot pools are just accross the street. The staff was very nice and helpful! Great DVD collection to choose from. Unfortunatly very slow internet connection which might attributed to the remoteness of the town. Personally we found... More

Motel was very clean, but we were disappointed by the stale smell that hit us on entering. Sprayed almost half a bottle of Coco Chanel to try to get rid of the smell which still lingered. Lady at the reception desk was lovely. Very friendly and helpful.

We are a family of 4. Two college aged kids. The room layout was great. It had two bedrooms. One with a queen and the other had two twins. The kitchen and bathroom were great and very clean. The only thing needed is the proper size lamps for reading. We arrived late from a BAD day and started laundry late.... More

The lady at the counter was lovely, she showed us a room gave us milk and vouchers for WiFi and another for a... More

Big glass sliding doors provides a lot of natural light into this comfortable one bed room unit. Living room had a queen size bed, a sofa, a comfortable lounge chair and a table with four chairs. The windows did have window screens which was good considering the town is in a rainforest with a lot of bugs. Small but modern... More

Ok, this place does suffer from the fact that it's located in an extremely rainy area, but that's what allows that beautiful rain forest. The hotel is clean and equipped with what you need, a kitchenette with a little table & chairs, a small bathroom, ours had a queen & a twin bed plus a couple of chairs & a... More

Granted we had lousy weather. It poured with rain, and their were a number of rooms around us filled by one party who kept walking back and forth past our room making noise and peering in. But aside from that this motel is not one of the better ones we have stayed in. It is pretty basic, and drab. There... More

58 is pretty basic & not too fab if the weather poor, brollies necessary. To be fair, we found some nice bars & restos but the weather was very very inclement! English, even...The system of State Highways somewhat a misnomer...
