Hi, I way there only for few hours from 9 pm to 4 am on next day. I’d like to share my experience as it never happened to me anywhere else... I was so tired from driving and I got there around 9 pm and I took a shower and went to bed... it was around midnight which two drunk men opened my room’s door with their key and came in... so I suddenly jumped and shouted that what they’re doing in my room... they’ve been so drunk but they’ve realised that they are in wrong room... when I thrown them away from room I’ve putted my bed at the back of the door and sat on it to ensure no one will be in my room anymore... maybe sounds funny for you but it was one of the most frightening situations I’ve ever had... so I’ve left place at 4am as I was unable to sleep anymore... my question to the management was how the guys’ key was matching with my room!!! I’ve been promised that my money will be refund but even that is not happened yet!!! I still following it up...

While the sheets were clean, the bed cover was not, and the overall decor was very tired. Needs a good make-over. Hasn't seen a paint brush for many years - far too long.

Suitable affordable transit stop

Pros: Close to main road, no time spent travelling off track to find the location.
Cons: Rooms are dated but reasonable for the room rate.
Location: Nil
Minimum time spent in motel, was no fuss with no unpleasant surprises. considering how close the motel is to the main thoroughfare it appeared to be quiet enough that our sleep did not appear to be interrupted by heavy vehicles or the nearby railway.

Good price

It’s basic but extremely clean and bathroom has been renovated. Bit noisy near highway but the air con neutralised the highway traffic . It’s fine for a night if you are passing through town .

Noisy and smelly

Reception was pleasant. Noise all night from Pacific Highway and people having conversations outside our room was unpleasant. Room also must have had a smoker in it some time before us. Not a nice odour. Beds were a bit hard. Bathroom looked like a public toilet block. Got a 2 star treatment at a 3.5 Star price.
