“Acacia Ridge Motor Lodge”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

A very clean and comfortable motel. After a good nights sleep we had a buffet style Breakfast which was included in the price and was enjoyable before setting off for Coober Pedy. The staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the back of the property, they are very quiet with no road traffic.

Stayed here for one night. Friendly service when I booked, when I arrived and especially when we were there. We had a lovely cooked breakfast and even though the rooms are quite dated, they were very clean and comfy. They even gave me a razor when I mentioned at breakfast that I had left mine at home. Would happily recommend this motel.

Very Quiet rooms which are very clean with an almost a retro feel in decor with everything you need hair dryer, Kettle, toaster, ironing board. Comfortable bed. Excellent Service and a decent breakfast which was included with our deal.

I have stayed here severals times over the last couple of years, and would do so again, units older style but very neat and tidy, very reasonably priced, and nothing was to much trouble from a lovely host, rang to say we were getting into town late and were surprised to to see her waiting to open gate for us.

I stayed in this motor inn on a Saturday night. Booked online for a retro single room, cost of $70. It was just off the highway, but far away enough to not hear any traffic noise.
I arrived late (9pm), but rang ahead and the lady was waiting for me and was most pleasant to deal with and very friendly and all organised for my arrival.
The retro room I think is called such as it is just old decor, but in all seriousness it didn't look to bad. New small flat screen TV, coffee/tea etc, clean very comfortable bed (Queen I think). Good clean bathroom and towels etc. Also has a heating/cooling A/C.
It's basic but pretty good for the money, certainly nothing to complain about at all.

I left early and left the room keys in a return slot and organised for my car keys and my car to be picked up later by someone else, only to happy to help with this as well.

I can recommend this room easily for the money I paid even if you are with someone else i think it is only $80 or $90. Not much for clean comfortable lodgings.

Room Tip: I had a room at the front against the room and slept well on a Saturday night. Most other room then...

Yet again I was welcomed warmly to this motel. This is one of those great finds that you want to keep secret but also want to tell everyone about to make sure they do well. Customer service is 10/10, stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms this time, bit more upmarket than what I've had in the past but worth it. Very comfortable bed and spotlessly clean room. Didn't have the breakfast this trip but took advice on some places to eat for dinner. If your passing through Port Augusta this is the place you want to stay at.

This motel was a good find in Port Augusta. While it is an older style motel, the owners have undertaken a refurbishment program and our room was smartly decorated. The facilities are also sparkling clean, with fresh paint and a very tidy set-up. Our early morning breakfast was well-cooked and offered something for everyone at a very reasonable price. The location also ensures a quiet night's sleep. While the Acacia Ridge is easy to find from the main highway it is far enough away so you are not disturbed by traffic during the night. We will be back!
