What can I say, the hotel literally stinks, our stay has been worst experience ever. Our room had one towel for four people, they wouldn't believe this (trust me it's true, I would never steal one of the cardboard-like towels) and accused us of stealing the towels. The manager was a bully and came into our room to search for...

Thank you for the feedback. Our aim is to provide a comfortable stay for all our Guests and your concerns have been noted and followed up with Housekeeping Staff. We are sorry you had this experience. But you had 6 people stayed in the room which supposed to be 4. We provided 2 extra towels to you when requested.

Postives- good location walking distance to portside wharf and $12uber from airport. It's a crash pad for the night before a flight or a cruise, not high expectations. They also have a shuttle and free metered wifi. Negatives-The rooms are dated and worn, and for $130 seems like a lot for this dive. This time though there were about 8...

The Airport Motel is very close to the International Airport and so convenient to be able to leave your vehicle while you are overseas. With a very rainy night on one of the nights we stayed it was very helpful to be able to order room service including alcohol. It is a bonus that the staff are very helpful. We...

Stayed in a family room for one night. Check in was quick and easy and we stayed in room 1 at front of motel. Road noise wasn't an issue for us at all. Beds were comfy and shower was good. Easy 5 minute walk to Eat St and Portside if your going on a cruise and they do have a...

We stayed here overnight before and after international flights. This place is just a good basic motel. All you need as a stopover motel. Checkin was quick. The family room was great with a queen and two singles. They provide a cot for $10 if needed. Only a 5 minute walk to Portside or Eat Street where there is lots...

The Airport Motel is perfect when needing somewhere close to the airport for an early/late arrival/departure. It is basic but clean and comfortable. Not far from places to eat or our car hire company. If you are looking for 5 star then go elsewhere and pay for it.

Stayed here over night recently, we were due to go on a cruise the following day. They have a free Shuttle bus at 9:00 or 9:30am that takes you down to the port but we opted to walk as not only a 10mins walk, because it was so close to Portside we checked out a little later due to flying...

Negatives: Old motel, small rooms, don't do wake up calls, welcome folder in the room was sticky, stained pages stuck together. We thought that for the money we paid ($135) it should be a better quality. Positives: A few restaurants within a 600 meter walk. Cheap shuttle for 2 ($15) to the airport

Great price for a clean, comfortable and friendly stay. We stayed the night awaiting a flight the next day and couldnt be happier with the service. Great affordable and clean accommodation for a budget price. Highly recommended for an overnight stay and 5-10 minute ride to the airport.

Thank james c
