We have stayed twice now, the last time for two nights. The room was clean, amenities as you would expect from a budget motel, but clean and tidy. Both times we stayed we were not troubled by highway noise. The managers, staff and housekeepers were all very pleasant. The motel is starting to show it's age, however if the level... More

I stayed there with friends as well as hubby, of course, for a State Bocce competition with Special Olympics in Sept 2016. Close to all amenities such as shops and bowling club, takeaway etc. Basic rooms, but a great price - we only paid $50 pp/pn. Very comfortable and staff are very friendly - can be busy on weekends but... More

Room booked on line. Looking for a central location to spend a weekend at the a concert followed by a harbour tour. Motel was an older property situated on the Pacific Highway. Possibly in need of renovating but the price of $83 a night alerted me to the fact I was not to expect 5 star. Room was at the... More

Have stayed years ago in the top rooms, over the weekend we stayed down the bottom in room 19, the room smelt of stale sex, ants all in the unit, in bad need of updating and cleaning. Curtains had holes all through them, and lace curtains were yellow/brown, beds badly need replacing, no hot water when we went to use... More

An affordable motel only minutes away from Charlestown Square. The motel was roomy enough and had very comfortable beds. Tea & coffee and a microwave was supplied. I requested a quiet room and was given a room at the back of the motel complex which suited me fine and could use the back entrance instead of onto the highway. Breakfast... More

Motel has many rooms, needs updating but clean and the Manager Terry, was very accommodating. The included in price continental breakfast was good and if you wanted more choice, the prices were reasonable.

A motel that has been around for many years. We booked one of the better rooms, however, upon arrival we were offered a two bed room which we thought would be just as good. Not so, as it was in the old section of the motel. A section that really has seen better days. The cleaner is squirting the bleach... More
