Very clean and tidy. Great for an overnight stay.

Pros: Clean and tidy
We just had a quick overnight stay. It was ideal for our family of six with cooking facilities etc. Very clean and well presented.

Pros: Central location and low price
Location: Pak N Save very close, and not much further to the middle of town or waterfront
Good budget-ish place. Bear in mind no aircon / heatpumps. Soap dispenser in shower had run out which was a bit tricky when I had to be leaving very early, but managed to get a few little dregs out of it to have a mostly effective shower. Free WiFi and good selection of TV channels.

Close to City and Beach

Pros: Friendly staff and very clean rooms
Cons: Maybe time for a modernising exercise. Shower pressure was a bit lacking
Location: Great location, beach, shops, pak n sav etc all within easy walk
An older motel, rooms are getting tired but very clean and functional and the motel owners were very helpful and welcoming. A bit of traffic/train noise but not bad given it's proximity to city. Parking was ok tho better for smaller vehicles - our Prado was a bit long to park in front of our unit so we parked at the rear. Rooms have a verandah and chair, no view. Location was excellent as was a short walk to beach and restaurants etc. If you are looking for cheap, clean accommodation that is close to town then this hits the spot

Cheap and tidy, nicely functional accomodation.

Lovely check-in, utilitarian facilities maintained to a very good level. It's nothing fancy but suited us well.

close to city centre

Pros: Very clean & well serviced. Owners are very pleasant.
Cons: Very tired & run down. Some lights didn't work. Asked for these to be fixed but didn't happen.
Tired and run down basic motel but very clean. I would rate as 2/3 stars. Difficult to park in motel as driveway narrow. Ask for quiet unit. We were on the road front and it was too noisy to open windows in 27 degree heat.
