Wed had an unplanned stay and, fortunately, the Airways Motel, was able to accommodate us. The receptionist was friendly and very informative. The room was very clean and tidy, stocked with coffee and tea and even milk! The free, unlimited, and fairly fast wifi was an added bonus. Although it's located on a busy main highway, it didn't seem too...

Airways Motel was immaculate, comfortable, and the kitchen area was nicely stocked (our studio had a microwave, kettle, and fridge, with all the dishes you'll need). The manager Lynne was very helpful, courteous, and friendly - you could tell that it was important to her that you have a good stay. If you're without wheels there is a bus stop...

Great stay, such a friendly receptionist. Excellent beds. Just had to ask how to get power through the card as I had never come across this before - I am from the country!! But great idea. Very close to the airport so excellent for people flying.

Stayed one night prior to early morning departure, free unlimited wifi. Was a great location for being handy to airport. They do have a airport shuttle but we didn't require that. Modern rooms, the night we stayed was a very warm night so was great to leave windows open with safety locks. On a busy highway so very noisy, but...

We rented the two-bedroom unit, which as really a small house. It contained everything we needed, including a small but functional kitchen and a washer and dryer, and a yard for the kids to play in. The unit was clean, although the oven and the toaster weren't working when we stayed. However, the owner very graciously offered to bake our...

Very helpful during booking process and with extending the stay. First night we were in a four-person room with extended family which was rather cramped. There were a few things broken (e.g. flush button on toilet) and the cleaning wasn't perfect, but that may be because the units are getting older and harder to clean. The two-person stidio unit the...

Worked well for the time we were there. Good location. Good kitchenette with all the necessary cooking utensils. On the negaftive side the couch sunk in the middle and the spa bath was too small to use.

Stayed one night after getting in at 3 am from Australia, not far from airport, easy access to obtain key from after hours key box. Very clean, would definately recommend. Road was a little noisy but we were so tired it didn't matter too much.
