I stayed here for one night and found the staff to be very nice and accomodating. My room was quite big and was very neat and tidy. The "bacon & eggs" breakfast was also very good and they even supplied fresh milk for coffee!

The location is great for access to the City (a bus stop just outside). Plenty of space for parking. Rooms are in need of painting and a general makeover, but they were clean and had everything you needed, most of all the beds are comfortable and the showers are hot. The staff are amazingly helpful. We stayed on the ground... More

I used this accommodation for business stay and it was perfect located for me to do my job. However, when i came there, i realized this place hasn't been updated for quite some time. Parking was free which is a great bonus and there is a lift ( if you have the luck that it comes to your floor) the... More

Convenient location for airport and city.. Always found the rooms clean enough. It is an older hotel but well kept.. The only downfall I find with the hotel is.. No restaurant or room service. However the booklet of info always has eatery recommendations.

Save your money & look around elsewhere. Very dirty, very loud disruptive smelly. Not what we had remembered from a visit a few years ago. Tired to discuss our experience to the receptionist/clerk in a very polite & respectful way & feedback was not appreciated or validated.

We stayed here a few times and it is always consistently clean and comfortable. Good location to the domestic airport. It has a pool and air conditioning which is a must in WA summer. You can get family rooms with cooking facilities if you want to.

I have stayed here a few time since work book us a room here. Rooms are average but the service is well above average. The motel is located between the airport and the city and the taxi ride from the airport is about $20. There are a few take away places close by and a good pub further down the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Great Eastern Motor Lodge offers luxurious, value for money, accommodation to families, business people, transit visitors and the holiday maker. We are situated for maximum convenience, midway between the city and the domestic airport, within close proximity of every service. There are 200 rooms in all, ranging from motel suites and bed-sitters to one-bedroom suites and two-bedroom suites for families, plus rooms with spas. Children are welcome with cots and high chairs being available on request. One feature of the complex is that most of the beautifully appointed suites have a fully equipped kitchen, including crockery and cutlery so guests may do their own cooking in preference to dining in restaurants, an expensive addition to any holiday. However for the business person, there are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance of the lodge - the city centre is only minutes away. Fully cooked breakfasts are available on request. Each fully furnished and fully serviced suite is equipped with remote controlled television, radio and reverse cycle air-conditioning. The complex has full laundry facilities available, same day dry-cleaning and ample free parking for cars. Twenty four hour reception is available seven days a week. Free wireless Internet and free FOXTEL is available in our rooms and there is internet and printing facilities available in our Business Centre in reception. ... more   less
