Booked this as it allegedly is close to Perth airport.
Perth hotels are pricey so figured this by airport was a decent buy. WORNG.
It is not close for starters - a $25 cab ride each way. A run down place absolutely in the middle of NOWHERE.
Looked like a Bikers convention was taking place.
Arrived late and desk had no record of our booking.com booking at $A130 a night for an alleged "larger suite with private bathroom".
Half asleep desk guy finally located booking.
The "suite" is an old room in this converted flop house type boarding place.
**NO** TV ... I have not even stayed at USA cheapsville roadside motels that do not have a TV.
NO soap for the shower, despite threadbare towels being provided.
Nothing done to room for years it looks like.
Our "KING" bed was 2 x wood sided singles pushed next to each other.
A kettle on table but no tea, coffee or milk or cups. ABSURD!
Indeed not even plastic cups or glasses in room for a drink to swallow tablets etc.
$130 a NIGHT --- $30 IS ABOUT RIGHT!?
Halve the price or avoid at all costs is my advice.
