First off - this is an no frills older style motel, so if you are looking for something modern this is not for you! That said, this stay was a fantastic price, we paid $110 for a two bedroom, two storey unit which is a huge bargain so it is easy to disregard the old interior. Overall I was pretty comfortable and it was a cold night but the heating was good as was the electric blankets.
The location is only a 5min walk to the CBD with a supermarket within walking distance.
The lady that checked us in was fantastic and freindly. Originally she had given us the wrong room and when we went back she fixed it up immediately.
Personally, I wouldn't stay here again purely because I like things a bit more modern but if you are on a budget and not too fussy then this place is great. We were in town during the St Clair Marathon so this was the last place we could find accommodation for - something to factor in if travelling in May!
