Reviewed 12 July 2014

We stayed here as part of a rugby tour with 20 boys.
Rooms were adequate as was the continental breakfast.
The room I stayed in was a two level apartment with 2 singles downstairs and a double and single bed upstairs. Very roomy even if a bit old but never the less clean. Serve us well and would recommend for groups with similiar demographics.The Baa hotel up the road is worth a visit. The motel is also across the road from the Alhambra Rugby club and field.

We booked for three nights in April 2014, but only stayed for one! An overwhelming musty smell greeted us when we walked into the room. We found broken floorboards in every room, bar the bathroom. Overall appearance was dirty and uncared for, staff seemed surprised when we checked out and mentioned the above problems!

We had a two bedroom apartment directly upstairs to the reception and it was fantastic. Massive rooms and very clean bathroom. Big lounge and dining area with a full kitchen. Free washer and dryer in a separate unit. Free wifi restricted to one device which is a little hassle. Would definitely stay here again. Fantastic place and close to town and supermarkets, just a 5min drive away.

I stayed here in February 2014 for almost 2 weeks on business. There was mold in the bedroom and all of the rooms had a musty damp smell. The rooms are very old fashioned as is the furniture. I stayed during orientation week at the local Uni so there was quite a bit of noise. On the upside the staff were pleasent and free wifi was provided.

We stay two nights on two separate occasions within a two week period and were charged 2 different rate (for the same room) $55 apart.

That kind of left a bitter taste in my mouth... but in saying that we did return.

It was a two bedroom unit with good heating, MORE than ample living space (including full kitchen and dining table etc...), comfortable bed, clean, modern with inoffensive interior.

We had to move rooms as the room that we were first put in had a fuse blown, which meant no hot water (a very easy fix, had we known that was the issue). That was not a complaint as the room that we were put in was much much better for our purposes.

The stairs to the vast upstairs bedroom in the first unit would be too steep for many, especially the older, or the very young. The front unit we were in does have some road noise, but not enough to keep us awake.

I really shouldn't rate this badly as we have stayed three times on separate occasions, but it's almost because we know it and it isn't "bad". I just still smart at paying $55 more for a mid week stay than a Sunday night stay (typically a slow night).

Okay value for two rooms and for the amount of living space you get, but I can't bring myself to like it more...

Room Tip: Room 101 suited our needs best

We stayed here with wider family for graduation weekend. While the place is very tired and in need of some maintenance, and the room could have been cleaner (especially the bathroom), there was plenty of space for four of us, the beds were comfortable, and the location was perfect! This place is just what you're looking for if you're travelling as a family on a tight budget.

Our apartment was big, enough room for us to have our own space which was perfect for our family. The bathroom seemed to have been recently refurbished and was nice. The rest of the apartment could do with an update and some work, though it seems like they may be doing it up? Was possibly the most run down motel we stayed at, though the quirky room added its own appeal and was the kids favorite due to the space. I didn't have a look at their website until after our stay as my husband organised our accommodation, but I would have been seriously dissapointed if I had of because apart from the bathroom our room was nothing like the redecorated one on their web page. I think they need to have photos of the other rooms as well on their webpage. The receptionist was very helpful when we checked in, lovely service and the room was very clean.

Room Tip: If you are going to stay here you might want to ask for the refurbished room
