A good three star hotel with excellent service. Free parking is provided which is rare close to Sydney city center. The motel about 20 minutes by bus from the central station during night time. It is 500m from Summer Hill train station. Be ware that not all trains stop at this station, but we found the frequency (Approx once in 15min at most times) to be fairly decent.
The beds and furniture was good for a three star place. The room had a air conditioner, bar fridge, TV, tea/coffee making facilities, decent bathroom accessories (much more than what you would expect from this class). The premises was very secure.
My review would have been far far better if we had not had a little bit of damp smell and a cockroach in our room. We had to keep the windows open due to the smell. The staff said that the cockroach might have come in as a result of that.
Never the less, the lady at the counter was extremely cooperative. We were shown another alternate room but it seemed to have a bit of cigarette smell. She offered a full refund if we wanted to move out the next day. Given that there were few economical options close to the city, and we were going to be out of the motel most of the times, we decided just to stay on.
