“Cheap n Cheerful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

Not a bad place to stay. Room is nice but old. TV and air con, tea and coffee making facilities, nice and cheap at only $105 per night. Bed was too soft tho which made it uncomfortable to sleep. Room smelled a bit like smoke but we fixed that by burning some incense in the room.

Stayed here for one Saturday night. Owners or staff were very lovely people. Rooms were nice, exactly what you expect for a motel and were a good price. Right near the foreshore and shops so easy walking distance to everywhere.
Rooms had everything you needed and were neat and tidy. Will definatly come back for a visti here :)

Luckily we only had to stay here over night, we arrived in the early hours of the morning after travelling from interstate. The room had leaves inside and a couple of cockroaches were scuttling about. The room was musty smelling and so old, nothing like the website photos. Tradies were drinking and smoking outside when we arrived at 2am, I think this motel is slumsville. Stay somewhere else, we will be.

I'm kind of reluctant to write this review as the owner helped us out when we were struggling to find an overnight stay in Mandurah with everywhere else booked , but in the interest of helping Tripadvisor readers , don't stay here.
Perhaps I am too middle class and used to a better quality of hotel but the only room free bore no resemblance to that on the website ( not that we saw that until returning home ).
The carpet had multiple stains , the bed sheets were grey ( but otherwise clean ) , the bed was concave , the room smelt damp , the facilities were negligable , the tv remote had disappeared, the walls were paper thin.
The owner/manageress was good enough to advise us that we would have a group of tradies either side of us who liked a beer and that maybe the room might not be suitable but as we seemed to have no other choice we had to take what was offered.
We had no problem with them but it was difficult listening to them abluting and getting ready for work at 5:00am.
On the positive side , because we were woken so early we left the motel by 7:00 am so could enjoy a full day at Margaret River
Oh yes , it was cheap as well , but sometimes cheap is not cheerful.

The motel was conveniently situated, but the roadworks started outside at 6am! (No fault of the motel, I know)
However, the room smelt damp and the bed was uncomfortable. There was a fridge, but no facilities for making a hot drink.
Very basic.
