This motel was fine for an overnight stay and the room was clean comfortable and decently equipped. Its not in a great location for finding dinner but fine if you are going to events at the nearby sports stadiums.

We stayed here for 1 week and it was a great choice! The room was big and clean! The Internet was free and FAST!! The cleaners were great! The tv was big and and had all the connections I needed for The play station an laptop to plug in! Bed was very comfy, location is great close to CBD. There is a busy road right out front and you can't hear any traffic.

I would deffenantly recommend!!

We only stayed here one night but found the room clean and well appointed. It cost $125 per night which was reasonable.
I have seen some bad reviews of this place but on the sign outside it states that the rooms were newly refurbished so it looks like improvements have been made.
One gripe was ytd temperature in the room as there was no air con just a ceiling fan.
If you need a fairly cheap place to stay this could be gut you.

This was a great place to stay at the last minute, we got an excellent deal. As we were travelling on motorcycles it was great too as the bikes were out of sight. We will most definitely go back there

Room Tip: If you like a quiet motel ask for a room round the back even though the front ones wouldn't be t...

The first unit we were in was unit 34.After unpacking we were making a hot drink and it took six cups to find one clean enough to use.The plates were the same,they felt like sandpaper to touch.
I suggest they were just rinsed under cold water.
After complaining we were moved to unit 28.That evening when preparing our meal we found that the pot we needed had no lid, there was no sieve to strain our pasta and the grill in the oven did not work. After again complaining we were allowed to use the stove in an adjacent unit.
The next day after returning from our sightseeing we found that the rubbish had not been removed by cleaning staff (this is supposed to be a fully serviced facility).
There was no soap rack/caddy in the shower. When I tried to balance a shampoo bottle on the track over the shower door I discovered at least twelve used cakes of soap on it.
Light bulbs were not checked daily, and once again we had to complain.
Management/reception never took responsibility for our complaints, they blamed the cleaning staff,Indians were in the unit before us(very Racist)and they purchased a bulk supply of light bulbs which turned out to be poor quality.
Twice I asked reception for directions to a tourist attraction, but they couldn't help because they were new to the country.
We were given a $15 daily rate reduction but I feel but my overall opinion is that this is a sub-standard establishment.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

Management did give me a good rate, but I couldn't say I would have been happy paying any more for this room. The shower was pretty unpredictable, and a lot of the things in the kitchen had not been cleaned adequately.
On the plus side, it was quite, and you do get free and fairly reliable broadband.
I was in a studio room, and it was OK for a night, but I probably wouldn't want to spend much longer there.

A nice a clean, refurbished room! Has new carpets, free wifi, nice big TV, a fridge, cooker, free tea and coffee! Was quite although we were there mid week and only 3/4 other rooms were occupied. It was winter so we did not venture into the pool. There wais a public bus outside to get us into town or ou to the base.
