We stayed overnight as we went to a wedding & reception and didn't want to drive back to Sydney. Downtown Motel suited our needs perfectly. It's fairly priced, centrally located and totally comfortable. The room was a decent size. Extra pillows & blankets are provided, along with a bar fridge, remote control air-conditioning and TV, iron & ironing board. There...

This is an older motel that could do with an update for sure, but for the price and location one can't complain. Importantly it is CLEAN and comfortable, and the staff are friendly and very helpful. Having relocated from an unacceptable motel that was way pricier, in a less superior location, very unclean and overally substandard, this motel was a...

We stayed at Downtown Motel in April to attend a show. The venue (The Music Room ) was less than 100 metres from the motel and we found plenty of good restaurants also in walking distance. Secure parking was a bonus so we just left the car at the motel .The room is probably 3 star but was very clean...

average motel. duvet cover had rips/ burns on it, plate wasn't clean, chairs stained. it's very outdated but would be good if it was updated, good location with restaurants 1 min away and good for a night out as it was only a 10 minute walk to clubs but not worth $125 for a double bed and room

For such a central position, this motel should rate well but I suspect the owners are waiting for the right offer so they can sell up and the site re-developed. At least that's what the state of this place suggests. It's all very scruffy - chipped paint, cockroach bodies on the stairs, mismatched crockery, bedside lights with globes so low...

This motel is in the centre of wollongong located close to shops restaurants and beaches. Unfortunately this motel needs a major revamp. Rooms were very tired and needed a complete overhaul. Exposed electrical wires at floor level were dangerous, there was mould in bathroom and overall it was below backpacker accommodation. Also with it being close to city centre it...

The room was clean and had very thing that you expect in a motel. We were stay the on a Friday night and did not realise that the motel is located beside a Loud bar/nightclub. After midnight We packed up and moved on. I guess if you are there for the night life this would be a great place to...

This was an unexpected (and unwanted) trip to Wollongong. I needed something in a hurry that was convenient and cheap. And this is what I got. It was also clean and the staff were friendly. It is extremely dated and desperately in need of refurbishment. The whole place has a feeling of dinginess and neglect about it. I had a...
