“Great location and great value”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

We recently spent two nights at the Mid City Motel, and it was great. The rooms were clean, comfortable, spacious and great value. The location is great, walking distance to just about anywhere you might want to go to in the city centre. The staff are great, made us feel very welcome and the place had a nice relaxed feel. The free wi-fi was a very pleasant surprise and useful for checking emails etc.. The included breakfast was also very good and started the day perfectly. This is a very honest property, not pretending it is something else, sure it is not brand new, but is a place we would revisit without reservation and will recommend to our friends and family.

Room Tip: We had unit two, which was close to the road, we absolutely no noise issues, this room had a kitchen...

This motel is centrally located close to shops, eateries, and walking distance to the sinkhole.
Continental breakfast and internet access is included in the price which makes an overnight stay great value for money.

This hotel is in a great location, right in the heart of town, and is a motor in, so great if you have your car. The rooms where not modern however more than adequate, the staff was really lovely and made the stay really lovely. We also had breakfast included which was very enjoyable and a great start to the morning. Would stay here again!

I stayed here with my 2 daughters aged 12 & 14 for 1 night on January 6th enroute to Adelaide.. We booked a family room through wotif.com which included a cooked breakfast for the 3 of us. If you are looking for a spotlessly clean motel with comfortable beds in a great location at a reasonable price then this is the place for you. We didn't need the car, the motel is in walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The cooked breakfast was really yummy and the owners where very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. I would not hesitate to stay here again if I were to visit Mount Gambier in the future.

Whether Mt Gambier is your destination or simply a stopover en route elsewhere, in our opinion you can’t do better for accommodation than the Mid City Motel.
We secured a standard double room for under $100 per night. Our room was large, super clean and well-appointed. There were spare pillows and an extra blanket in the wardrobe with the hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Breakfast was not included in the price, but it is available from the motel or, alternatively, it is possible to make your own light breakfast, as a fridge is provided, as well as a toaster. (Some rooms also have a microwave.) A large supermarket is located diagonally opposite for supplies.
The bathroom had the shower and toilet separated by a wall (with a doorway, but no door) from the basin and good-sized bench. A light over the mirror was appreciated. Towels, bath mat and non-slip mat for the shower were supplied, but only one face washer and hand towel were provided for two people; extras probably would have been supplied had I asked, but I think they should have been standard supply for a double room. Unlike other reviewers, we had only one towel rail, but there is room for another. The bathroom is eco-friendly, having soap, shampoo and conditioner in wall dispensers (not in tiny bottles which I think are not only fiddly, but wasteful). The shower had excellent water pressure and constant temperature, with an effective exhaust fan above. The window allows natural daylight and opens for ventilation.
Another thing we like is that since all eighteen units are at ground level and car parking is directly in front of your room, it’s easy to bring in your luggage. And the car park has excellent security lighting.
Although it did not diminish our stay at all, I can think of only one area for improvement and that would be customer service. Desk staff were not over-helpful. On checking in, we were not offered the free wifi code, or asked whether we’d like a map of the town, or help with anything else. When we checked out, we weren’t asked if we’d had a good stay. Little things such as these should be automatic and part of a friendly greeting and would have been the icing on the cake of what was a very pleasant stay.
The location is perfect; walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the information centre. If you’re looking for clean, quiet, spacious accommodation in Mt Gambier for a very reasonable price, we recommend the Mid City Motel.

Room Tip: All rooms seem spacious and quiet. Some rooms have kitchen facilities.

Have stayed here before and this time it was still up to the standard it has set. Rooms are very spacious and refurbed. Bathroom is excellent although an afternoon shower wasn't too good with little water pressure. Was AOK by next morning. Breakfast was on time and tasty as usual. Its location is one of the key factors in choosing the Mid City. It is well run, clean and tidy and little if any noise. Still recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are ground floor with your car at the door. No stairs - yes!!!
