Had a really nice stay, clean comfortable room, good tv and aircon ! I've stayed here before and it's nothing like it was. Good to see they changed the management, a breath of fresh air, staff are friendly and happy to help ! :-)

My 62 year old mother stayed here last night and left in tears the woman was extremely rude and charged extra for an 8 minute late departure understandable they have policys but unreasonable and greedy considering there was no one waiting for the room also has not given her a receipt for the extra money she has paid. Sheets were dirty so she used the ones out of her car as she was travelling from Kalgoorlie and the room smelt and was not clean If anything else is charged from her card I will be taking this further. You are providing a service and shouldn't be treating your customers like crap. I hope you get shut down, your a horrible person!

Worst place to stay and very rude owner. No where close to what you see in the pictures. Yellow stainless all over bed. Forget about pool you might get coronavirus entering into it. Don't get trapped yourself looking that $80 price.

Classic Motel We arrived at the last minute following information from Booking. Com, to shorten the story, says that the behavior of the receptionist who also owns the motel was terrible and disgusting because the billing was already paid -non refundble. Even during our staying the service was at zero level, the receptionist who also the place owed charged our credit card even before we arrived at the amount of the stay and another $ 50 in case of damage, when we went out we asked for getting the money back and she refused to check the room, the money was not returned to date claiming damage In short, an original way to steal money from customers, at such a level of service, not to approach this motel. Horror !!!
