“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We loved this motel. It has a modern style and furniture, very clean, and comfortable. Great sleep quality. It is not right on the main road, keeping it away from traffic, but still right in the middle of the township, across the hot springs. Friendly people at the reception and a great BBQ place! We will definitely be back.

The best part about this motel's location is that the hot pools are right across it. We stayed for 2 nights and since we couldnt go out due to rains, we spent most of the time in the hot pools or in the motel room. The staff was very friendly; they have a huge collection of DVDs that you can borrow and watch, as well as umbrellas that you could use when it rains there! Very spacious rooms, great kitchenette facilities and sufficient parking space. Very comfortable stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. The apartment was a good size and had everything we needed, it was clean and tidy.

The motel is situated on a quiet road a few minutes walk from the central area. There are a few bars/restaurants close to the motel.

Would stay here again.

Highly recommended for anyone making the drive along the west coast.

Pros:
• Clean room
• Friendly staff
• Quiet
• Just a short walk away from the best restaurant in town (Alice May)

Cons:
• The laundry room opening time is a bit short

Well located motel in Franz Josef. Very clean room, spacious with a kitchenette which was fantastic. Nce comfy bed and quiet. Located close to lots of places to eat. We ate at King Tiger and Alice May's, which were all within a few metres. There are also quite a few other places to have a drink and eat. Wouldnt want anything more from a motel to be honest, Would definately stay again.

We stayed in a Studio unit and a King Studio unit for 2 nights. And the units were really clean and spacious with everything we needed.

Also, the staff at 58 On Cron Motel were extremely helpful, telling us everything we need to know or have while at Franz Josef Glacier.

I would recommend anyone visiting Franz Josef Glacier to stay at this motel as it is a convenient spot, whereby you don't miss anything at Franz Josef Glacier.

A clean and friendly motel with good laundry facilities and well equipped bedrooms. Easy parking and set back from main road - so quiet! Not basic, but does what it say on the tin. V. helpful staff.
It has the bonus of being opposite the thermal pools too!
