Clean, large and adequate. The bed was comfortable, wifi good, price reasonable but the noise of the trains thundering through during the night was terrible. The cars swishing by were tolerable but the train noise woke us. Maybe rooms at the back of the motel would be quieter. Would we stay again... Not really sure.

This was not chosen because it was the only place available - it was OK but we wouldn't rate it as more than average. It was cheap, and the room functional. It wasnt spotless, and the whole establishment seemed a bit uncared for. It is on the main highway, and so traffic noise might be an issue for some people....

This motel is run by a delightful Vietnamese family. The motel itself is quite old but everything is super clean and the staff are so nice to deal with that it makes for a very enjoyable stay. The Wifi is excellent- very fast and reliable. The prices are excellent and we would definitely stay here again if we were coming...

What a surprise this was. It was a very nice room. Clean, comfortable, affordable and had everything we needed for a nights stopover. Friendly host, free wifi, electric blankets, comfortable bed and all the standard amenities. Even Chinese delivered to our door.Would stay here again for sure. Very impressed :)

Well, the price was good, the service was wonderful however the motel needs a good upgrade. Very old inside but clean. Affordable was the key. Reasonably central to the main street. Good parking. Great restaurant attached to the motel..

After reading previous reviews - I was a bit concerned as my employer had booked me to stay here. I am still here and am pleasantly surprised - this is a very nice hotel. Had a rear block room, there are rooms at the rear that are the same size etc. Bathroom and separate basin brand new. Very good size...

You can't expect a motel at the side of the road in a provincial city opposite a railway line and on a main road to be anything else but an overnight stop. That's what we expected and that's what we got. But what we did not get was a shower that was even vaguely useful. Not that there wasn't hot...

Rooms were tidy, but that's about it The free Wifi was terrible, they had to replace the tv then i couldnt get the free foxtel at all, It was a cold night so we left heating on auto so every time it turned on it sounded like a hammer hitting the wall, so couldnt sleep.

The family room was perfectly pleasant and the beds were comfortable. The staff were welcoming and friendly. A few issues though - there was a broken window with tape across it that hadn't been repaired. Apparently an earlier guest with young kids had hit it and smashed it. For safety reasons this should absolutely be repaired. Explaining it doesn't fix...
