Reviewed 20 April 2010

Booked in for 2 nights but only stayed for 1. The room was pokey, smelt odd and the doors didn't seem overly secure. There was 3 of us staying and none of us could connect to the advertised free wifi. But after a couple of cockroach sightings we decided to just checkout. It was cheap and I wasn't expecting luxury. But I wouldn't recommend the Paradise inn motel to anyone

After checking the web site I booked a room for myself and my adult daughter and was quoted $130 for the night. On arrival we were told the room for 2 was no longer available because of an over booking but they would give has a room for 4 at the much discounted price of $150. I was then asked to pay cash as they could not accept cards! Well never take the key to room 15B if it is offered to you... Room barley big enough to fit the 2 single beds and bunk beds in, air conditioner set on 17 deg and no remote to change it, TV (smallest i have ever seen) with no remote and no knobs to adjust volume,which was so loud that almost blew us out of the room, or channels (Therefore NO TV for US!) Then after a night our we arrive back to our secure car park to find our park taken and no others spare, we were then told "Oh well if it is full you will have to park out on the street"
The ceiling had a large hole in it above the toilet, mirror a very hazey brown sort of colour that you can barley see in, no bins in room or bathroom and by the next morning the fridge was so cold (probably from 17 deg air con blowing on it all night) every thing was frozen rock solid! Room adjoined room 15A, but they may as well have been in with us as you could hear EVERYTHING! BUT .. the beds were clean and quite comfortable if that is any help.

While I understand it is xmas holidays BUT to try and charge $200 for a 4 bed dorm room with a fan over 2 single beds and a very poor aircon pretending to cool the the bunks was a joke the room smelt, bathroom had a hole where I assume the bathroom fan had been cracked shower screen , a table no chairs a TV no remote & the volume switch broken . The room was a connecting room I would not have kennelled my dog in the room. KEEP AWAY from room 15B

We realy enjoyed our stay at the Paradise Inn. The price was very reasonable and the service good for the type of accommodation. Beds were realy comfortable and rooms old but clean. They are very convenient being open for check in 24 hours. Our flight arrrived late and our booked accommodation was closed. This was the only place open, and we were happy we had a place to stay and would happy to stay there again.
