My husband and I stayed at the Kingsford Smith Motel for one night on new years eve. We were going to Gianni's at Portside for the masquerade ball so for this reason the hotel was a great choice as far as location goes because it was only a short walk home for us. It would be very convenient for anyone who needs to be near the airport also.
The rooms are rated as 4 star and I would largely agree with this. They are very clean, of an average size and the bathrooms are a decent size as well. I certainly didn't expect the rooms to be as good as they were considering it is called a "motel" - I think they are more of a "hotel" quality. The owner said that they were even being repainted and revamped in the next two weeks so the rooms should be even nicer in the future.
The staff were amazingly helpful, polite and attentive. They lent us umbrellas because of wet weather - which I thought was very cute! The (husband/wife?) team had a real bed and breakfast style about them and were an absolute pleasure.
Best of all the hotel room only cost us $125 on new years eve! We couldn't believe it! On a night where everyone takes advantage and charges over $300 for even the most basic rooms these guys kept a reasonable price.
I would definitely recommend this motel to others. It was a great find.
