Reviewed 17 March 2017

Stayed at this Motel to attend a wedding at another venue. Large family room (only 2 adults staying), with kitchenette. Comfortable bed and clean. When we walked into the room we could smell cigarette smoke in there, the window was open, and it was quite noisy from the street. Early hours of morning, an alarm went off and seemed like ages before it was switched off, and a lot of noise from outside. We also heard the shower from the next door room, which made a squeaking noise everytime it was used. Okay for a one night stay and conveniently located.

Reviewed 24 February 2017

Recently spent one night at this motel in order to attend a concert at the WIN Entertainment. Perfect location directly across the road from it and short walk to beach and restaurants. When booking we were assured of a double bed and two singles (we were 2 friends travelling together-this was the 'family apartment'), only to find the single beds were a fold-out bed and a sofa bed. Most unsatisfactory. On arrival we had to ring a bell for someone to attend to us and he arrived with bare feet which did not fill us with much confidence. The bed linen, although clean, had a brownish tinge to it, having been washed,we assume, with the brown arctic fleece blankets.The bed cushions were grimy and frayed and should have been binned years ago and the 'decor' hadn't been changed since the 70's. The carpet was stained and the shower curtain also was way past its use-by date. To add insult to injury a notice on the wall warned of a fine of $100 if any rubbish of any kind was left behind. Excellent location though!

Great location for entertainment centre, stadium, restaurants, shopping, beach but needs major work - mould in bathroom, stains on carpet very hard mattress, bad TV reception - at $154 a night was certainly not value for money when paying for entrainment dinner as well. Won't be back

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

As other reviews have noted, this motel is not the latest, but it is very well location. A very short stroll to the beach, next to the entertainment centre and 5 mins walk to some of Wollongong's best restaurants.

It's got everything you need, inc a stove! Plenty of light, off street parking, super friendly management and staff. It was clean, free from bugs and that 's important to me!

Yes, it was old, but I was there to sleep not hang out and admire the decor.

Room Tip: Great location
