ONE OF MY BEST-EVER MOTEL EXPERIENCES. Arrived late and reception closed. Phoned the number on the door and spoke with Geoff who was out having dinner. Said all bookings were accounted for and then remembered I was booked in the PREVIOUS night!! He was right. He asked me to wait & said he would be back in 10 minutes. He was. One room left, the spa room. Not only didn't he charge me for the upgrade, he didn't charge me again for the room, which I believe he was entitled to do, and which I was prepared to pay. Top quality bloke. If I'm ever in the Tweed Heads area again I will definitely stay at City Lights. Gary Watson, Abacus Auctions, Melbourne

Air conditioner in our room did not work. so gave us another room. T.V. in room didn't work without punching in a code. No info on what the code should be. so management come to our room to reveal code. this code had to be used every time you changed channel. Flexible hose on shower spraying water due to leaky hose. Reported this to management when we checked out in case they didn't know. Loud noisy guests drinking and smoking throughout afternoon. Sat night same loud noises up until about midnight or later. The room was clean. Overall place seemed to be in need of a face lift. We will go somewhere else if we need a room in future.
