“Decent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I don't know what the other people are complaining about. Try staying at a real 3 star motel/hotel! This was so clean and had been re-painted and had other things fixed up. Manager was friendly. Offered us a voucher to the pub down the road. I personally didn't like the food but my partner did. I ordered fish and chips and i got a very bony filled fish with dry chips and hair sitting on top. This happens, i know, but it really put me off. He ordered pizza which seemed like a microwaved coles special. Anyway - the lodge - yes, so good. Would stay again. Worst part was just the noisy heater/air con unit.

John made me feel so welcome. The room was outstanding. I met a few other people staying at EconoLodge and they loved the atmosphere too.

It was cold in Kingston but the heating was awesome. I would like to go back in Summer so that I could lax by the pool with a beer or two.

Econolodge is located near one big 24 hour petrol station so good food can be bought from there at anytime.

Old and neglected and smelly. My husband has just recovered from a heart attack. He was too upset, to stay in the room. Unfortunately we have paid in advance and lost 109 dollar. Would not recommend this motel, which we have booked thru Hotel Club. We moved in a clean motel in the same town.

I Travel a lot for work, staying in many hotels/motels, however this little motel in the south-east would be my favourite. Owners John and Di are extremely nice and welcoming... I've stayed here 5 times for the south east field days, and after rocking up in a singlet and shorts they both stilled remembered who I was by name. It's a great feeling.
Rooms may need a few upgrades here and there, but I certainly don't care. Look forward to staying here in the future!!

We stayed at this friendly motel at Christmas Day. It turns out, all Australia is closed that day and no chance to get a dinner. The owners were so lovely and prepared tasty sandwiches for us! Thank you so much! The pricing is ok and the room had everything we needed for one night.

A group of aviators chose this accommodation due to its proximity to the Kingston airfield and stayed here for 1 night, booking 5 rooms. The rooms are basic but clean, the bed was very comfortable, the shower water was hot and there was no noise and best of all it is very reasonably priced.The owner was very obliging and taxied the group, at least 3 trips each way, for free in his own vehicle, from the airfield to the motel. While this gesture often occurs to those who fly, we were all impressed with his level of service and his cheerfulness. Likewise he was extremely helpful in providing additional glassware etc so we could all sit together in one room for refreshments. Would definitely stay here again.

old and tired. everything needs an update. turned on box air con and it was so noisy we couldn't hear the old box tv which is perched on the paint chipped bench. right next to the faded tan leatherette chairs. this place really needs freshening up. not a huge cost, just some effort.
