I have been staying there for the past 14 years every time I travelled overseas or a weekend break. Very good value for money. Has always been good and I will continue going back. Only point is that when upgrading the system why you always delete the data and details of regular guests. It avoids wasting time if infos are... More

My family and I stayed at the lodge over christmas and I must say we really had a great time. We were able to relax and enjoy the calmness. We would have booked for longer but people were really negative on tripadvisor about these lodges. Yes it is not what we are used to with other 4 star hotels. Anyone... More

We booked a twin room online about three weeks ago, then I phoned to confirm the booking. All was set. Get there, they book us into a wrong room. Not what we paid for. Then get the correct room. Then they double book the room,(not very comforting or safe) and some people come into our room while we are changing... More

Being the entry level accommodation of the City Lodge Hotel Group, all of the Road Lodges countrywide provide superior accommodation at the lowest prices. The cleanliness and hospitality at Road Lodge Carnival City are really noteworthy. It is well-maintained and is comparable with more luxurious accommodation elsewhere. Road Lodges are where we stay wherever possible.

The room was just below the standard average Road Lodge. Service was slow. No elevator so you may have to carry luggage up stairs to the 2nd or 3rd floor. Its well priced for the location though as its in the Carnival City Casino and Entertainment Complex. Worth booking in to spend the night if you plan on going to... More

We were well received, the rooms are comfortable and the receptionists are friendly. The location is its greatest attraction, for restaurants, bars and game rooms are steps away from the hotel. We stayed over the weekend we were going to a show and it was very convenient. I hope to return more often and keep up the good work

I stayed with my family for a night to visit carnival city. Its a reasonably priced hotel with good amneties. They should put an elevator for easy access of rooms. Rooms were small and crammed. The views of the carnival city were nice. The reception area is small and not cosy. Would definitely stay there again. .. strangely
