Just spent a night at this expensive Motel...Nothing supplied at all, and for the price we thought it was a total rip off. Never stay anywhere near room 62! Clearly the "working girls" room and they kept us all awake. Didnt even get asked if we enjoyed our stay on check out. 2 towels supplied for 3 people, and we needed 2 off those to stop the water running everywhere in the shower

Room Tip: Look for something better

This hotel is a rip off, compared to other hotels I have stayed in, in Perth.
Other hotel supply, iron/ironing board, hair dryer,tissues,shampoo/conditioner, flannel/hand towels & biscuits all in the cost of the stay.
When I went and complain about the staff locking me out of our room they were rude, told me to calm down and couldn't give a stuff.
I had spent the day at the Royal Perth Hospital with my brain damaged sister who had just had surgery for colon cancer. I didn't need to come back to my room to find I was locked out.
The Flag Motor Inn on the Great Eastern Highway Perth is a let down and over priced. They call it a superior room and charge $170.00 a nite.
I would NOT recommend anyone staying there it's a not worth the money, way overpriced.

Really expensive for what you get, if you have the time shop around.
The room is clean and bathroom too give points for that compared to other places thats about all on the good side.
Shower has a curtain which means water gets all over the floor in the bathroom bit of a nuisance. No ironing board or iron in room a kettle is all you get. Air con unit is absolutely useless can't even take the chill from the room.
You dont need an alarm clock as you will be woken up at approximately 5.00am every morning by a truck driving in and then backing out a few minutes later.
No shampoo or tissues supplied or any other toiletries.
Toilet paper is low quality.
There is a laundry with one washing machine and dryer, a dollar or two more then most other places I have stayed to use.
Restaurant has a long waiting period, however it was recommended not to eat there as they do not know the difference between well done and rare.
The first night there it smelt of garbage outside the restaurant not a pleasant introduction.
Seems to be a lot of people standing around drinking beer no alcohol served in the restaurant either.
Its a bit of a nuisance to find in the dark with major road works happening outside, the motel is now set back from the road and its easy to miss the driveway till you get used to its location.
The place is two story its a bit of a hassle lugging a 20kg bag up the stairs.
Parking does not seem to be a problem at all on the premises, surprised they don't charge a surcharge for it.

This place is only interested in making dollars not the comfort of the guests it seems.

Room Tip: If by chance you decide to stay here a ground floor room away from the restaurant would be much more...

We stayed here overnight as we arrived in Perth after flights from the Eastern States and saw the vacancy sign lit up. (We were too tired to drive home near Bunbury.) Room was nice and clean with nice hot water and the heater kept the room toasty all night. Close to Airports and even though there are roadworks outside on GE Hwy, the room was quiet. Had a small kitchenette too, which would be good if staying more than 1 night. Will definitely return if we have late/early flights in the future.

Room Tip: Motel is renovating at present, try to get a room that is finished.

I have stayed at the Flag Motor Lodge Perth several times over the last couple of years and never had any problems there,what you pay for is what you get,and always helpful and friendly'
I admit having read some of the recent reviews i was expecting it to have gone downhill but not a bit of it.My wife and i had a superior room to the side upstairs with our own balcony.Not at any stage did we hear the roadworks or have any problems with FIFO workers although there were quite a few staying there judging by the number of working blokes in their ones and twos eating that night.
Room,whilst not being overly large large was clean and tidy,the staff were all friendly and helpful,dinner was quite good value for money and wait staff were pleasant and courteous.
I did actually ask who was the recalcitrant amongst the staff as I was interested re some of the recent reviews but nobody admitted to being that person and as staed,all staff,front ,wait etc were on the ball.
I will definitely stay there again next trip to Perth.

Clean rooms that have had new carpets and a coat of paint, layout is old motel style, front rooms facing the highway could be noisy, construction works outside july-12. 3star and no more accommodation. $165 room rate. $18 taxi ride to airport. Restaurant closes early. Ok just for overnighter FIFO but it is probably the least appealing motel of the many I've stayed in so far in Perth.
