I can't say I will choose the Flag Motor Lodge again, but it was clean and served it's purpose for a night. Be sure if you plan to use the ironing facilities in the laundry room you clean the bottom of the iron first, I marked one of my shirts with the gunk on the iron, after I had attempted to give it a clean!
I was woken quite early by other guests starting and revving their car engines, so I probably would not stay if you have ambitions of sleeping in. Check out was pretty early and I was not able to extend this as I was told they were fully booked the next night.
All in all, pretty ordinary.

I have stayed here many times. I do not always write a review unless things change. They have at the FLAG. I see greater management in the field and a better service all round. The rooms are well maintained and bathrooms refurbished. Staff have become much more helpful as a culture which is great. Meals are good. Produce selection for meals is better than average. Bacon without fat, fresh eggs, edible steaks and good value and pricing.

From my first review this place has progressed and this needs acknowledgement. I think there is always more to do but going in the right direction for a change.

Pros - Good well maintained rooms - basic but works
Close to the city and airport.
Good meals and room service.
Cheap Wireless Internet - hour usage
Quick check in and out. No muss no fuss.
Plenty of free parking
Con - Nature of the clientele - bashing around at all hours
Internet is very slow

Room Tip: Get a room at the back and upstairs as it can get really loud.

We have been staying at the Flag Motor Lodge for quite sometime over the years because it is in a convenient situation. In that time we have had a few complaints which have been addressed due to the great management. Housekeeping staff keep the rooms nice & clean, meals served hot & timely, check in/out is quick. Just one complaint, if you are ill don't expect too much help, apparently it is too much of an inconvenience if an ambulance is called to assist you. Other than & the hike in accommodation costs, it is close to the airport and city. Management has improved thank goodness. Over all an improvement to our last stay.

Room Tip: Always try and get an upstairs room, there you have the best chance of your room not being broken in...

Where do I start.... The rooms are large enough and are basically comfortable enough but nothing extra is provided ( you have to purchase it from the front desk at ridiculous prices)

The restaurant would have to be in the bottom 3 worth places I have ever had to eat!! its BYO ABD The food took ages to arrive (I'm talking an hour) and you usually have to sit and wait for a table. Don't for a second think this makes it a good place, it's only full because everyone that stays at the hotel isre new FIFO workers and there company is paying for them to eat there so they do!! After the second night I ended up working 20 minutes each way to a pizza shop just to get a decent meal.

And due to the place being full of FIFO workers that are there due to the hotels close proximity to the industrial area only 3 streets away the place is always very noise right up to 10pm or later!!

If you are looking for something that is close to the airport then I say keep looking. This place is way to expensive for the quality but they can charge it because of all the new FIFO guys

After my last stay I was reluctant guest but work paid. Basic accomadation @ $165 per night. Been recently refurbished throughout. New carpet, bathroom fitout, wall painted and all appliances worked for a change. Being older the rooms are quite large. The restaurant had a strange morning service where you filled out a room servive order. No self serve.
Front desk service can still do with a bit of polish but very helpful none the less.
Pros
Plenty of car park
Onsite restaurant
Quick check in
Basic tea and coffee facilities.
Large clean rooms and bathrooms.
Linen changed daily
Centrally located in Ascot.
Bus Service out front
Cons
Bloody noisy with people coming and going all night and letting everyone know about it. Banging doors and walls, loud jabbering, etc.
Food is pretty basic.
Overall it has everything you need but would not for and extended stay. Great for FIFO overnighter.
Not much to see in area and need to travel into Perth.

Room Tip: Upstairs at back away from main road best.

Had to travel to Perth at short notice and was put up here by my company as there was no availability in the CBD.
The booming WA economy means that a basic motel like this can charge over $160 per night - good luck to them. Just about anywhere else somewhere of this standard would cost about half that price.
Room was clean and adequate without any frills. Staff were efficient and helpful with taxi bookings and a few other questions.
Location not good - on the main road (which is a construction site at present) and it's a long way out of town which meant about 30 minutes in a taxi each way to get to the CBD.
Not a lot to recommend it but if there's nowhere else available it's sufficient.
