“Has gone downhill unfortunately! beware!”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

My husband and I have stayed at the FLAG MOTOR LODGE for over 32 years, ever since we started going out together and then after we had our family. It was wonderful but especially in the last 6 - 12 months there has been a change of staff and one staff member in particular is very, very abrupt and rude!Nothing has done about her despite numerous complaints from other clients and also staff members.

We used to have a lot of respect for the manager and duty manager but as they do not seem to want to look after long time clients and are only out for the ''big bucks'' we are going to stay elsewhere from now on.It is a shame because we had the highest respect for the management but they seem too slack to address issues that are losing them clients, mind you we get the impression they really dont care as they can always fill the rooms with other workers from mining companies etc which is really disappointing!

The rooms are clean and the meals and housekeeping staff are absolutely fantastic! So are most of the reception stafff apart from one!

We hope you do not come across this person, you will know if you do!

I stay here quite often with work. The rooms are neat and tidy, recently renovated and have a large screen TV. The meals are basic and good. If you fancy something different the Red Cray is across the road and there are also a few other options not far away.
Just a word of warning - the restaurant is only BYO so you can only order a soft drink with your meal, but there is a bottle shop just down the road so that solves that problem. There is a fair bit of road works going on out the front with the widening of the Great Eastern Hwy, so you get a bit of a traffic snarl in the mornings so leave yourself plenty of time to get away.
Over all it is a reasonably priced and clean motel with good meals. Far cheaper than what some of the other places in Perth think they are entitled to charge nowadays.
There is quite a large contingent of Fly In Fly out workers here, but I have never had any problems with noised or anything. It is very close to the airport and most people depart pretty early in the morning

Room Tip: Some rooms have a balcony. You could request a room back from the highway, but I have stayed in a ro...

This is a no frills motel that is clean and tidy. The restaurant is very hit and miss, but there are plenty of other options nearby. It is in a convenient location close to the airport. Chris at reception is very friendly and helpful. Was concerned that there would be a lot of noise as there is a lot of young FIFO miners staying at the same time, but was pleasantly surprised that the rooms were relatively soundproof.

We were traveling through Perth and needed a room to stay and had no reservation... very tired! we stop at the flag and they accommodated us.
Lets be honest, the place is not a luxury resort, but it was clean and comfortable, lots of families were staying there and great location.

My Partner and I stayed here for two nights the room was very simple but nice, clean and well organised but no remote for the air conditioner (not at fault to hotel as some get thief's) the reception on arrival and departing was appalling never been to a hotel with a un friendly reception staff who has no customer service skills (possibly need to evaluate the staff at hotel). Food was lovely but had to be quick to order as may not be available (ran out as was told) first day no home made cheescake second night no garlic bread or brechetta. Was slightly noisy but i can sleep through anything haha, for $145 a night good value not the best stay but did manage to over come and have a good holiday stay.
