The room was basic and a little weary but roomy, comfortable and clean, the staff were great with easy check in and out. The hotel is close to a lot of venues but the lack of restaurant with limited room service to choose from meant that as tired as we were we had to go out and hunt down fast...

This motor lodge was located near the city with easy access to Fremantle and the city. The room was basic but had everything we needed, as family of 3 adults, two bedrooms a lounge and kitchen. The staff were very helpful when we needed it. My sister was taken ill during our visit and we had to take her to...

We stay here as an overnighter when flying out early the next morning as it's located not far from the Airport & City. Check in was easy and well organised and the rooms were comfortable & clean. Some of the other people we stayed with complained a bit of the noise in the building with crushing bottles & someone sitting...

Most people stay just to catch an early flight. The place is ok, a bit dated and definitely only 3 star. The lack of a restaurant is really annoying. All they have is a vending machine. The staff were helpful and pleasant and check in and out was fine. The hotel is in a smi industrial part of Perth and...

Stayed overnight for an airport run... Landed late and left early the next morning. Manager/owners were accommodating and helpful. It's the location and noise that I had a problem with. Cars in the middle of the night thought that the highway was a race track, and I struggled to sleep as a result. People in the unit above were also...

Arrived at the hotel to find a room in desperate need of updating. Cutlery was filthy with food stuck in the forks. Bathroom was adequately clean. Was disgusted to find undetermined milky white marks on the sheets of the queen size bed. The front staff was very apologetic and had the room cleaned again but this sort of thing shouldn't...

Negative feedback of any nature is never pleasant however we do need to hear it so that we can endeavour to make appropriate changes to ensure that it does not occur again. In this instance the guest did make a complaint to our reception staff that they were not satisfied with the bedding and the cutlery in their suite and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Great Eastern Motor Lodge offers luxurious, value for money, accommodation to families, business people, transit visitors and the holiday maker. We are situated for maximum convenience, midway between the city and the domestic airport, within close proximity of every service. There are 200 rooms in all, ranging from motel suites and bed-sitters to one-bedroom suites and two-bedroom suites for families, plus rooms with spas. Children are welcome with cots and high chairs being available on request. One feature of the complex is that most of the beautifully appointed suites have a fully equipped kitchen, including crockery and cutlery so guests may do their own cooking in preference to dining in restaurants, an expensive addition to any holiday. However for the business person, there are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance of the lodge - the city centre is only minutes away. Fully cooked breakfasts are available on request. Each fully furnished and fully serviced suite is equipped with remote controlled television, radio and reverse cycle air-conditioning. The complex has full laundry facilities available, same day dry-cleaning and ample free parking for cars. Twenty four hour reception is available seven days a week. Free wireless Internet and free FOXTEL is available in our rooms and there is internet and printing facilities available in our Business Centre in reception. ... more   less
