Stayed as we were passing through for the night. Was the cheapest accommodation we could fine due to easter weekend. Very budget. Crowded just the plan essentials. Where the bed was, there was a pipe sticking out of the wall from an old radiator heater that had been dismantled but they left the pipe attached to the wall. As I...

Unit needs a good makeover. Dead cockroach under the bed in the room the children slept in. Cockroach crawling around in the cupboard...

It was disgusting. A non smoking studio smelt of smoke, carpet was stained, shower laminate had chunks broken off the lower edges. No microwave and the TV only received free view, no radio but we were advised that we could listen the National Programme via the TV. Receptionist was very ungracious and very happy about refunding our money. This motel...

The pool is fill of slim. You have to pay $5 for a spa. They didn't service while I was there for 8 days at all. Cockroach's (big ones) crawling all over the place. Poor maintence. Frayed cords, broken in half stove elements, dark and cold. If you don't want to get sick . Don't stay. Highly recommend Comfort Inn...

We chose this motel because it looked ok from the road, and the sign said free WiFi. I was surprised at how cheap it was – but not once I'd seen the place. Very tired decor, peeling paint and a smell of damp. What's more, the 'Free WiFi' was only for the first hour! The walls were so thin we...

We had the basic studio for one night and for $80 (includes $5 booking fee) thought it was a bit pricey for what we got. We weren't given any internet access at all. The sleep was okay and the arguing couple in room number 4 provided all night entertainment.

If you after a place to stay with basic amenities and nothing flash I'd def recommend this place. At 50 bucks a night budget suite compared to 100 elsewhere you can't go wrong. Hr free internet per day per device. I use this place everytime I come up for work. Its close enough to town without the unnecessary inner city...
