Nice and clean room with air conditioning and dstv. It is walking distance to the casino and restaurants. So supper was not a problem as only breakfast is offered at the hotel.Breakfast was very nice and the staff are friendly.

We knew beforehand that this place is a one star hotel and the price for the night was very, very affordable, so we did not expect much. We want a clean place to stay after we attended a show in Carnival City. The room was clean and neat, and although it was small, it was adequate for our needs. We...

The place is clean but extremely small, linen and towels have seen better times but at least clean. No luxury should be expected but at least you have a roof over your head. Ask for rooms in uneven numbers as they do not face the busy road. We left too early to have breakfast so cannot comment on that

We recently stayed at the Road Lodge, Carnival City with a group of dance students and found the accommodation to be relatively affordable, and that it catered to our needs. The staff was extremely accommodating and where they were unable to assist offered suggestions. Children felt safe enough to walk around the complex by themselves and enjoyed their stay.
