“Avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2007

My husband & I went to Hobart for a short break and we were booked into Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn for 2 days. We checked out after the first night. It was that terrible that we could not stay a minute longer. We should have checked out straight away, we regretted staying the one night, but we were tired and it was a long day travelling to Hobart.

Good points:
Friendly staff
Check in was hassle free

Bad points:
Dirty bathrooms (hair every where)
Room deco very dated (like 1950s)
Room sofa has stains everywhere
Carpet looked like it hasn’t been vacuum for decades
Stains on bed sheets and pillow cases (looks like it has not been changed for weeks/months)
Noisy (because it's next to main highway)

Avoid at all costs, don’t even go there if it was free.
