I was so worried about staying here as I booked and paid before reading the reviews!!! And when I read the reviews I panicked!!! BUT we where pleasantly surprised!! Its definitely not 5 star but our room was quite clean and smelt clean , location is good. You get what you pay for so we really didn't have any complaints,... More

Stayed on Saturday night and found the place too be very tired but also very clean. Absolutely fine for a stop over & I believe that the new management will endeavour to make improvements as they can. Air con worked extremely well & found the pool to be very satisfactory.

Stayed there for one night and not a pleasant experience. Room was pretty average. Towels were not provided and later after notifying they supplied those. Found Cockroach inside the room. Shower is very slippery that is why didn't bothered to take shower. Won't recommend anyone to stay.

We are a family of 5, headed down for white xmas at movie world and didn't want to have to drive the 2 hours back. Therefore we needed somewhere fairly cheap (as we literally just needed a bed for the night) safe and secure. I searched high and low and most places wanted about $300..........we stayed here for $160. Although... More

Air Conditioning broken (managers claimed my booking told me this, but I cannot see any notice informing me that), very tired, worn and not all that clean. Cheap but I would rather pay a few dollars more and avoid third world accommodation.

Basic and aged accommodation in a good location. The place is in need of a spruce-up. Though we generally slept well (tired after excursions), the beds were not very comfortable. When we arrived (after hours), there were no chairs in the room, which was speedily resolved by friendly staff next morning. The kitchenette area had a small fixed window with... More

Staff lovely, cleanliness needs to be looked at, fair enough the rooms are old, bathrooms need makeover, beds very firm...so if you like firm beds this place is for you, all in all a cheap motel, I would come back again and bring a mattress topper 😉

We stayed here last night. Good if you are just here to sleep/crash for the night. Very simple rooms, no kitchen but has microwave and mini bar fridge. If it's cooler months, bring extra blankets as the ones supplied are only thin. Has air con and small tv. No real complaints but you get what you pay for
