4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We found this motel by pure luck driving past it. Was recently renovated and some rooms are still being upgraded. Very functional and having a microwave instead of just a kettle was fantastic. Would stay again next time in Canberra

We usually go to Canberra for one or two nights and stay at Red Cedars. Their rooms are very simple but comfortable and clean. Easy to find, 5 mins drive from the downtown and just across the road from the NFF venue.

Room Tip: If you don't have big luggage, ask for an up-stairs room that can be quieter.

We stayed here and were impressed with the room and the price!
We think we had one of the recently renovated rooms.
Great location we were 5-10 minutes from everything.

Refurbishments now completed. Units clean with nice fresh new cabinets. The room size was good with a lounge and a table with two chairs. Large TV and an Air con that worked well the was no noise and I slept well. It is abut 7km's from the city but a couple of kilometres down the road is the Watson shopping centre with a take away and a Thai restaurant. I had Thai and enjoyed it. Canberra is a frightfully expensive place to stay so this would be a great place for families. can't say I noticed any play ground equipment but after a day of doing the sights of the ACT I guess the children would be ready for bed early. Not too far from Belconnen and the AIS facility. Management very helpful.

My family stayed at Red Cedars for one night in a non-smoking family room. As soon as I opened the door the stench of stale cigarettes hit me - it was unbearable. Fortunately, our total time spent in the room amounted to 8 hrs as we were at a wedding until the early hours of the morning. My complaint to management on checkout fell on deaf ears. Not only was the smell unbearable but my husband now has bed bug bites as a souvenir. Next time in Canberra I will pay slightly more and stay somewhere else.

I arrived 4ish and the carpark was looking dodgy with workman having drinks at the bbq. Reception was ok. Surprisingly, the room was good. It's been renovated, decent size tv and the bed was comfortable enough. Air con worked well. Need to drive back in to Canberra to get takeout dinner etc but it's convenient for drive out towards Sydney. Noisy in morning waking up to sound of school kids and the plumbing. No place for a sleep-in. Price was good. Prefer to stay at Olims for same price but better location.
