136 On Bealey - Motel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Lovely motel. Good service and comfortable bed. However the rooms are directly on Bealey Ave. The traffic is constant all night long, trucks, racing cars, yelling, people roaring past. Not ideal if you ae looking to have a decent sleep.

We stayed there for 3 nights and I can definitely recommend this motel. There was a problem at the beginning because we booked a twin room and we were offered a double one. In fact, there was no problem because the receptionists immediately gave us another room - much bigger then the booked one. The whole apartment was big, very clean and with all facilities we needed, tea, coffee, sugar, milk were also available.

We had a second floor room overlooking a busy road so not so attractive for enjoying the small balcony. A older style well run motel within walking distance for breakfast & dinner establishments. A nice flat walk into the CBD and the re Start area. This is the area of new buildings and the 'Container' popup shops, a very unique feel with the shop keepers upbeat & positive .

The accomodation was on a main road, but despite the roadworks outside during our stay it was not an issue. It was a clean comfortable and spacious room. The staff were very helpful, giving us plenty of information about the area. They recommended the Container Thai "restaurant" across the road - a takeaway with picnic table seating outside - which was very busy and the food was excellent! It was only about a 10 - 15 minute walk to the city centre which was useful. It has good wifi and onsite parking. It is also close to the airport, so we didn't have to drive far after our long haul flight.

We stayed at this motel for 2 nights. The woman who welcomed us in was incredibly sweet and hospitable. She was very helpful and answered all our queries. She even lent us the phone so we could order pizza! haha. the beds were perfect for the 3 of us, one single and a queen. I would admit that the floor space was a bit small, but we managed. Place was clean and the bathroom was spacious. However, I would like to mention that because there was no separator from the shower area to the rest of the bathroom, the water from the shower would get everywhere! It wasn't a big deal, but I would like to think that if we had stayed longer that would have bugged us. Other than that, I would still very much recommend this place as everything else was beyond what we were paying for. Cheers!

This room was large, very clean, and the bed was comfortable. There is a small well stocked kitchenette. It is walking distance to downtown and the staff was very friendly. We did have some construction on the street that went to 1:00AM, but it wasn't terrible and didn't keep us from sleeping.

We needed a bit of help to sort out a booking issue with Trip Advisor and Bronny on the front desk went over and above the call of duty to make sure we were happy and settled. She is an asset to this establishment and made us feel at home in the beautifully presented adjoining rooms. We will definitely be recommending this place to everyone. 😀

Always helpful staff. A convenient spot. Walk to town, coffee and breakfast at the corner shop, dinner close by. Rooms on Roadside balconies are good for sunny mornings, but the rear (no balcony) are more quiet. I will return to stay here again

I stayed at 136 On Bealey Motel last week. The staff were really wonderful, super friendly, and very helpful. The room wise clean and tidy. The spa bath was so nice at the end of a long day. The bed was really comfortable with lots of room to spread out. Breakfast was yummy with lots of options to choose from and a great price at $10. I'd definitely stay there again and highly recommend it!

Spacious and clean, helpful staff and accommodating for ridiculous arrival times of certain international carriers. Very noisy street noise late at night with hooning hotted up cars which made sleeping difficult.
