747 Motel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here with a group of friends over the weekend. Our room was good for the price and super warm even without the heater on. The electric blanket was a nice surprise and the wifi worked great. Was a bit disappointed with the lack of bench space our room had compared to the others would rather if had one less chair, and the only sink being in the bathroom also wasn't preferred. This meets all basic needs though and we did enjoy our stay.

What stands out when traveling? The welcome and the being made to feel welcome ! I have read the bad reviews but don't think this place deserves them. We arrived exhausted and staff were so understanding and welcoming. Location : under 5 minutes to a major supermarket and literally over road from aquatic centre- The rooms are fine - nothing flash but also not boring but very homely warm clean and welcoming. I would recommend this place to anyone. From central city catch bus 14 up over the hills for an amazing view also

We were very dissatisfied with this motel.. It had very strong smelling diffuser which looked suspect.. Paint was peeling off walls, duvet covers were dirty and stained,(I have photos of this) , the vanity had an unpainted ill fitting panel on the front of it. I would not recommend this motel to anyone...

Our room sadly smelt very badly overnight and the bathroom was mouldy. Pretty noisy outside our room as well. Uncomfortable bed. If your looking for some where cheap to stay it's okay but I wouldn't stay there again if I didn't have to.

Self contained small rooms in handy, but out of the way suburban location.. Staff were friendly and helpful.. nly a short walk to Kilbirnie shopping centre for breakfast, too. close to the airport and at a reasonable price,

Yes, it is tired and badly needs a spruce-up in places, but for anyone who wants a clean place to put their head down for the night, close to the airport and at a reasonable price, this is ideal. Only a short walk to Kilbirnie shopping centre for breakfast, too.

This place was great value for money. $119 for the night 2 adults 2 kids - couldn't find anything cheaper closer to the airport. Staff were friendly and helpful and we kept our car out the front for the 10 days while we were away in auz. Clean and tidy rooms.

Self contained small rooms in handy, but out of the way suburban location. Close to airport, supermarket, beach, bus, with everything you might need, plus free parking. Clean rooms. Highly recommended.

With check in available until 9pm we were surprised when we arrived at 7.00 to find no-one in attendance. We rang the number on the door and left a message, and when we rang again in fifteen minutes the manager answered and told us how to access our room. Free wi-fi in theory was available but we had no way of knowing the password. The rooms are in need of some renovation. The power point needed to be held as you removed the plug or it came out of the wall, the hot plate took 20 minutes to heat a can of soup, the bathroom had nowhere to place clothes where they would not become wet (this was a family room, where people will be using the bathroom to change), and the stairs to the upstairs units went over the kitchen bench, which led to noise every time anyone went up or down. The beds (1 queen, I single) were adequate, but set against the wall due to the size of the room.

Absolutely loved the shower water pressure. The room is quite compact, the toilet is even more. Cleanliness of the room was all right. Had the things I expected in the room. Room servicing was done quite okay. First day had a decent usable towel but the second day both used and unused towels were gone and replaced with a towel like thing that was old, stained and quite disgusting to be honest! Went for the second one and that looked like a cleaning cloth, torn and visibly stained. Yak..... if you have no choice in town and just need a place to crash for the night - it may be the place, otherwise no.
