We stayed here for 2 last nights of our trip to Tassi when we couldn't find anything available during the high season. We paid $130/night for a double room but informed that we only get a family room with 3 single beds when we arrived. That price is also for unserviced room. The room is in ok condition, a bit old. Bathroom is even older but ok for basic needs. We got a bit of the city view but it means that the room is pretty noisy. I didn't sleep well due to the high volume of cars during the nights. If you are sensitive to noise, make sure you ask for a room away from the highway. Wifi is free but slow so only for mail checking and FB :)
We 'd only stay there again if other hotels are booked...

We stayed here as Hobart was pretty much fully booked with the race and taste festival going on. Note we booked in September! At $130 a night for a double room we were told there was no room servicing because of the special price we were receiving, what a joke! Having stayed in hotels all around the world this place was an absolute over-priced dump, avoid at all costs!
Basically they have run the place down to nothing and at charging market rate on city hotels.
Nightmare to get and from to by car as its on the hwy, going only the direction out of the ci

We stayed here for only one night when Hobart was pretty much booked out. This seemed to be a problem in all of Tasmania the week we were there. The room we got at $120 for the night was a family room, but we only used the double bed, but it came with bunks as well. The room was nothing flash, but bed was comfortable and we had a City View - however this also meant we were in the rooms closest to the highway. So I would suggest if noise is a problem you may wish to give up the view. Room was basic, bathroom old but clean. Heating was via electric oil heater. But for us there were not alot of other alternatives. We chose to dine in Bellerive in a great little Asian Cuisine BYO which was great as it was close without having to travel back over the bridge. I would stay there again, but only if my favourite Hobart hotel was fully booked.

My hubby & I stayed at the City View Motel recently and had stayed there a few times before. I was shocked at how much it had changed. It was freezing in Hobart that night, there were no electric blankets on the bed, there was a two bar oil heater that didn't do a thing for the heating, no extra blankets anywhere. I had to go to reception to ask for some light bulbs as none of the lamps had any in them.
There was wet towel in the fridge where it had been defrosted and not taken out.
I asked reception about electric blankets and was told they don't have them anymore.
It certainly is run down and not cheap either, never again..
