Where do i start....very dated and unkept! Would not recommend or stay again. Pool was advertised as heated, it was tepid and certainly no something you would swim in at this time of year. That was 1 of the main motivators of booking. Overall pretty disappointing to say the least.

I wish I had read reviews before booking. This is the scungeous motel/hotel I have stayed in. There were broken venetian blinds-not expensive to replace- shower curtains that should be dumped- again not expensive to replace and the carpet was so stained etc I really didn't want to walk in bare feet on it. The telephone in room didn't work...

This place is dated and very tired looking. How ever breakfast at $12 was amazing. Fully cooked bacon n and eggs wow. Ok for a one night stay but not luxury. Two heaters in the room but no fan and it was hot! Had that old smell about it. Staff not very welcoming

- The first room I was allocated had cigarette butts overflowing in an ash tray and the shower wasn't working. So they moved me. The next room: - No hot water. I asked the motel manager and was told it is because someone in the room upstairs must have had a bath or shower and used all the hot water....

A night in the Grosvenor Motor Inn was possibly the worst spent in our 35 years of Moteling. From the Outside and on the website it looks appealing but we should have been warned by an abandoned supermarket trolley and cigarette butts in the newspaper holder by the door of our suite. Upon entering we saw tattered and venetians which...

Ok to just put your head down. Nothing flash at all very old fashion, paint peeling of the ceiling in bathroom, really poorly maintained such a shame, could be a very nice place if had some TLC. Good location wouldn't want to stay there any more then a night tho.

On arrival I realised i had stayed here before a couple of years ago, so as it was pretty dismal back then I felt disappointed I had booked here again! But our room was clean, very run down though, and the beds are VERY old soft spring beds. The staff were helpful and nice, it would have been a great...

This motor lodge is run down and although the unit we had was clean, but was very poorly maintained. The bed linen was very well worn, one very old woolen blanket on the bed, the towels good but the bath mat was very tatty and ready to be used as a rag. This is an establishment that does not provide...

Great location, close to the city and attractions. Safe area. I was a bit nervous heading over to Grosvenor Motor Inn as recent reviews were not the best, but my friends and I were fine with our stay. The rooms are a decent size, and facilities are decent. Our only issue was the bed sheets did have stains and were...
