Despite booking a "family unit" which we were assured over the phone and webpage would include a separate room for the kids, on arrival we were put in a studio unit with 5 beds. The room was clean, but in a terrible state of disrepair. Appliances, including a heater were outdated and featured exposed wiring. Beds were uncomfortable and the... More

Stayed there for 3 nights and the rooms were not even serviced once. Clean towels each day but beds were never made nor were the bathrooms cleaned. Heater was not even working on the first night. Would have moved out but all the other motels were fully booked. We were greeted by a big cockcroach the moment we entered the... More

I reiterate everything other reviewers have said. Place was dirty I put an item of my own clothing around the pillows as I didn't want to put my head on them. Advertised price $80 but was charged $130 with no prior explanation. No discount for sharing with the cockroaches. When I queried the cost, the person at reception said "it's... More

I found Park Lodge to be dirty, very under equipped and expensive for the services they weren't providing. We had a cockroach in our room which ran under the bed. When we lifted the bed to catch it we found it had not been cleaned under for months. Family we were travelling with found an rtd bottle under their bed... More

I could not agree more with the other reviews. Luckily we arrived in the afternoon so could see the units and grounds in daylight. The kitchen was just a cupboard and the room dark and dingy. When I looked for the swimming pool the stairs to it were overgrown with weeds and the pool looked as if it had not... More

I wish I had read this site before. When I booked mid week, I asked about the beds, I was assured the the bed's were great and would stand up to scrutiny. Big Failure! We were tired after the 7 hours drive and didn't think to check the bed 1st. Service was without grace as it came at the end... More

Totally agree with Jean G comments - only wish I had read these before booking. Cleanliness not up to standard. Whole complex very tired and needs upgrading. Kitchen utensils and appliances could have come from a garage sale.Tea towels with holes, bath towels thin and bath mats frayed. Swimming pool not operating despite 25 degree temp. Noisy at night as... More
