The name should have been the give-away but we probably didnt expect the bed to touch 3 walls of the room with one tiny walk-way - only one person could get dressed at a time. The shower had good pressure but the space was pretty small too and we would definitely recommend that you take your own soap - there was a dispenser on the wall but the soap was so watered down that it may as well have just been water.

A busy week in Hamilton so availability of accommodation was scarce and not much choice at relatively last minute. Would not be my preferred choice in the future. Noise from other guests particularly when they were climbing stairs and when they were shutting [slamming] doors the walls of my room rattled. Very poor curtaining particularly over the door. Disappointed to find window open on my arrival with smokers in the vicinity [too close to rooms] and security issue with window left open during the day after so called servicing. TV perched on a bar stool beside the bed. Shower attachment needs fixing also folding seat in shower needs a good clean with mould remover. With very little effort most of these things could be rectified. Car parking an issue on my return late at night. Its basically a backpackers and on that basis you get what you pay for. Didn't check out communal kitchen and laundry facilities.

1. Car parking is very difficult and as the motel was full, I guessed that if I had tried to park between the columns and unusual undulating driveway, I might not have easily got out in the morning. I parked down the street instead. 2. There was no soap left in the shampoo 3. There was no milk (even powdered) for coffee or tea 4. The room was basic but serviceable and had a heat pump which was fine.

Incredibly small room but suited my needs. I was a bit frustrated when the washing room closed at 8.30pm. Maybe some maps to the nearest Laundromat, places to eat, etc would be a great help to those not from the area. An allocated place to park? a lot of the parking space was taken up, or unable to get out of, due to someone parking behind or in front of you. I felt safe and the staff was wonderful.

I'm in a box!

The room ($79/night) was so small the door barely shut past the bed which was oriented sideways. The length of the the bed went from one end of the room to the other. Room was about 2m x 2m. No aircon, no tv as advertised in photo of room. Small window opened onto 4 lane intersection, so noise all night.

Easy access to the city and great management.

Was running late so phoned ahead and the reception waited till I arrived. Parking was a problem as there were none left but got promptly sorted. Basic room but had everything I need, bathroom was modern and the bed comfortable, I was worried there might be a lot of noise but by 9pm it was quiet. All in all great stay..

Pros: All easily put in a tiny space.
Location: a bit run-down area but a safe area.
I only stayed for a night. It is really teeny-tiny - a microtel. Somehow it feels like they have taken a campervan and build in many tiny rooms.
