I turned up here at about 1am after another hotel did not honour our booking. As another reviewer notes, there is a large sign outside saying rooms are $85, however I think the guy knows when you arrive late that you aren't going to look around, so he offers $125 and then you have to argue a bit. I settled... More

Of all the motels in town, we had to pick this one. A bit of elbow grease applied to the shower is needed, and the fridge urgently needs defrosting. We couldnt even put one esky block in the freezer. Very tired, but a good scrub and new bed linen would help.

It would be unfair to expect that a $100 motel room exceeded all expectations. It didn't. However, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom reasonably roomy, basic amenities are provided, and undercover parking outside the door made this an acceptable option for a short o/n stop. There are a lot of motels in this town and many of them seek to... More

stopped in for a quick over night stay with a group of friends. Whilst discussing between the group if we needed two or one room the receptionist was pushy handing myself two keys to two rooms. I asked him to wait for a minute as we had not come to a conclusion. I was told repetitively to "come pay me... More

Totally fine for $80-$100/night. Absolutely criminal that they charge $300/night for the most rundown looking room I've ever stayed in in a Western country. Our hotel double booked us so they found us accomodation here for a night. Seriously, for this type of money it is laughable.

Considering this motel was overpriced due to the xmas holidays it would only be far to rate it on the standard price range which is still overpriced. Friendly greeting with a price haggle (drop) which suited me. Comfortable and reasonably clean with all the bits and pieces. Did find scuffed cupboard doors and rusty outside bar fridge. A few loose... More

It's convenient, most of all it is clean with good facilities. Hosts are pleasant, and conversational It's not the Taj.. (Pun) but we enjoyed our night there, most of all, the 5 to 10 minute walk to some great pub meals. We'd stay again, if we were just travelling through. A little bit of noise from the trucks that forget... More

Last room avail in Coffs. We would NEVER stay here again. The house next door to the motel contains Drunken, Feral Hillbillies that swore and fought until early hours of the morning. Smoking permitted outside the rooms and woofted in all evening. Road noise was nothing in comparison to the disgusting behaviour of the neighbours. If you don't mind loud... More

Unfornatually this hotel is a hole, it's dirty they don't really care about the clientele that they let stay here, for people who live on the premises they don't address the noise levels that their guests make. When I turned the fan on dust went flying around the room, the floor where the fridge is was dirty and sticky, the... More
