Recent guest reviews

Booked Motel on line it exceeded my expectations ,staff friendly older Motel but very clean and well presented under cover parking for bike a little bit out of town but walking distance to most facilities over all great value for money

The owner is very friendly and helpful, and has only had the motel 12 months or so, and is doing a fantastic job doing the motel up, Painting, new carpets, Comfortable bedding, Rooms very clean. good air conditioning, and plenty of hot water, Close to town, Parking is one car per room at the moment, but was told that she is going to add more parking for extra vehicles when possible. Price is very reasonable.

Never have I been more revolted - not only by discovering cockroaches (plural) on the pillow where I was about to put my face - but more so the lying, deceitful treatment I received from the staff afterwards. I spent less than 30 minutes in the room. Dropped off suitcases after a long drive, went out for dinner, returned at 10pm and discovered the cockroaches. Immediately loaded our bags back into our car and contacted the staff. A young girl attended our room (I'm going to guess the teenage daughter of the management?) and told me "oh I guess we will have to call the exterminators again". She promptly disappeared before I had the chance to return our keys. I called several times and the phone went unanswered. I left a voicemail but never received a call back. I left the keys in the after hours box with a polite note requesting they reverse the charges made on my credit card. Of course they didn't. I had a relative in Australia give them a call after a week, and the person on the phone claimed that the towels were used. Absolutely not true. I sent an email (again nice and polite) stating all the facts and requested they reverse the charge as I received no goods or services from them. Didn't hear back. A month goes by and I email again requesting at least a response and I get a rude reply that says they won't return my money and that they'll wait to hear from my lawyer! It's not a huge amount of money, but the principle. If you don't mind sharing your bed with cockroaches, then this is your place. I've kept copies of the notes and emails I sent and have attached the pic of the cockroach on their bed - looks small in the photo but it was bloody huge ewww

Look this is not the Ritz its a cheap old style Motel for the budget aware. Needed a quick stop over for a mate and I with 2 bed rooms and this was the cheapest. Very very clean and tidy with new furnishings and carpet. Had air conditioning but did not need it. Front rooms had a little high way noise with windows open but I'm sure rear would be good. Tea/coffee and TV and internet was good. Owner helpful and friendly. Not a romantic choice if travelling with the wife but probably the cheapest you will find. Yes would stay again in same circumstances.

A reasonable motel budget prices the main room is good comfortable bed and all the usual things you expect, quiet being on a main road, quiet air conditioning, parking off street is tight when driving out do it at an angle so to not scrape front of car, there was a couple of issues though, needs a bed side lamp but the biggest was the bathroom could definitely do with a total revamp very dated, there's plenty of hot water and good towels but the cracked tiles behind the toilet not a good sight, staff very friendly if bathrooms upgraded would definitely stay again

I loved this motel. Although the room is small, it was spotlessly clean and well appointed. The owners are friendly and professional and provide excellent service. You can get a breakfast pack for a few dollars if you have to leave early the next morning. My only minor issue was the lack of powerpoints. I had a computer and two phones to charge and I could only find one powerpoint in the room and one in the bathroom. There were none near the bed. I will bring a powerboard next time I stay.

A lovely lady runs this establishment and there were some nice touches such as biscuits with the tea and coffee but overall not much to recommend it. At $150 for a family room a queen bed was cramped into a small room along with three singles, leaving barely enough room to manoeuvre between them. The bathroom was tiny with a sloping, wonky floor and an unpleasant smell. The wifi didn't work and the traffic noise was overwhelming. We didn't raise these issues with management as we were only passing through for one night but we've stayed in far superior hotels for a much more reasonable price.

Great budget motel. After reading all the reviews I have to say this motel has improved and cannot fault it. It is very basic and cosy. Linen was fresh and clean. Shower pressure was amazing. Couldn't hear traffic from our room. Yes it does look a little outdated but it shows the history and how original the motel is. And yes we had milk, toilet paper and other essentials. If you need tissues why don't you bring your own. Would stay there again. Thank you

Basic but comfortable......good shower, comfy bed! Don't know about FREE WIFI BUT!!!!! Up the cleanliness and it would rate a little higher! The location is good, and easy to find. Would stay again if in the area.

Checked in Christmas Eve just for the overnight. Room basic but appeared clean except for strong smell of air freshener. During night woke up and noticed pillows and sheets had blood over them. Not from me. Obviously not changed bed linen from previous guest. Advised Manager and he apologised blaming woman who did rooms. No offer of compensation. Wouldn't stay here again.
