Should advertise as retro! Very unhappy with 30 day cancellation policy for full amount only.

It is very hard to comment when the guest does not identify themselves in these reviews.Some guests may label the motel as retro but it is still good clean accommodation at a fair price.The beds ,tv's,drapes,toilets fridges etc are certainly not retro.We have a cancellation policy that protects our interests against non bona-fide travellers particularly when there is a period of "high demand"

Clean, comfortable and quiet - all that is necessary. A good choice.

Comfortable hotel, away from the busy freeway. Even though the hotel wasn't modern it still had everything we needed.

Convenient place to stay while on a work trip.

Pros: The room was small but neat. It was all I needed as I was travelling solo. The bathroom facilities were good.
Cons: It was fine.
Location: Just passing through so I can't say much on that.
Very helpful and friendly manager. He rang on the day to check when I would be arriving. I said later than office closing. As a result he left the key in an accessible area so I could enter the room. As a result I didn't have to stress about getting to Murray Bridge in a hurry. My trip ended up being so much easier!

Great cheap overnighter

Pros: Staff and the bed
We were allowed to pick up key early, didn’t want to disturb the staff, late in the night. Explained how to get to where we were heading. Even though the room was old looking, it was clean, neat and for me, most importantly the bed was comfortable. I slept well.

Poor customer service skills

Won't stay again in a hurry as owner was quite rude. Room was ok but there was a used toothbrush and dead bugs in kitchen draw and also an old chicken nugget and baby bottle lid under the beds.

Just an insight into why some owners like myself might come across as rude.I am up at 4am 7 days a week, not only dealing with guests but also hands on with maintenance and cleaning.I wonder how the reviewers would feel at the end of each day? As owners we are set guidelines on our response but Expedia allows untested and unsubstantiated reviews by guests.I suspect this vexatious review by Anonymous is such a review.Nothing was ever brought to our attention at the time.Hiding behind an anonymous review seems a pathetic way of dealing with issues either real or perceived.

Just stop over, passing thru

Pros: To me it was just ok.
Cons: Nothing because it's an older type of motel with small rooms.
Location: It's quite a few km out of town, and in a quite location.
The motel was just ok, mainly because the room was extremely small, with very limited space for a case or to hang clothes.

I'm sorry if you wanted a modern motel.We have never pretended to be one.The location is exactly the same distance from the centre of town as the otter main motel.The only difference is that our motel is not in a built up area.Again if guests want a larger room just ask at reception rather than moan online.

Great location, very outdated

Pros: Location
Cons: Time to reinvest and update the property. The price is reasonable, but overpriced for the condition of the hotel.
Great Location and great staff, however the facility is very outdated.

We have spent every spare dollar on upgrading the motel.I do not take a drawing personally and we are still servicing a mortgage.The motel was built in the 60's and I take exception to "overpriced for the condition of the motel" You should have seen it when we purchased it 5 years ago.Then you would have reason to complain.

Suitable for a comfortable overnight stay

Travelled to Murray Bridge to watch the World Series sprint cars race.
