Nice and friendly but asked at reception if we could have back room but guy assured us we wouldn't hear traffic from room 2 well that was a lie as it was bad, clean and tidy but for light sleepers beg for a room off the road

I recently travelled to Casino for work & stayed at this lovely little motel. Though on the main road into town the facilities were spotless & the traffic noise is minimal. I was pleasantly surprised. If your looking for somewhere affordable, that wont break the bank, this is it. There are only 10 rooms so get in quick. I would...

The 70s style motel has been maintained in good condition, but as with others of the period, they could do only so much with the bathroom. Clean, comfortable, functional and convenient. Rooms smallish, but adequate with space to sit, good bench and storage space but limited hanging space. Good access to the CBD and places to eat. I would stay...

Long drive to casino but a warm country welcome to a clean and functional room Parking is a bit of a squeeze but it works because owners manage it well to leave gaps to maneuver. Room is clean! in walking distance of eating options.

Great place to stay in Casino. Very friendly, clean and welcoming. Good beds and I loved the variety of pillows from hard to soft , which I think is really important. Close to McDonalds and centre of town. The only minuses I can think of is the lack of variety of tea's such as green and herbal tea and the...

We stayed at the Squatters for a night and arrived with no booking. The owners were very friendly and helpful with local places to eat. The motel is an easy walk to everything in town. The room suited our purposes and the bed was comfy. Unfortunately the pillows were a poor quality ( which, if I am honest, seems to...

I had 3 nights here. The motel owners are delightful people who were friendly (but not intrusive) and always willing to help. The room was very comfortable and quite spacious. The free wireless internet was a great bonus. There was a good range of free-to-air and Foxtel channels (although the Foxtel pictures were a bit dark). It is an easy...

Room was a decent enough size, clean, tidy and comfy. Located centrally to the main shopping area. Breakfast was delivered on time and piping hot. Breakfast was good value and tasty. For the cost and taste we were glad we ordered in and not worried about going anywhere else.
