Very friendly owner. Well equipped, clean room with comfortable bed.
Complimentary wifi- unlimited usage and devices (a first on our trip)
Complimentary drinks to a local restaurant was icing on the cake!
We really enjoyed our stay. Many thanks

We weren't sure what to expect from this motel given the price, but there were limited options available and it looked ok, with good tripadvisor ratings. We were pleasantly surprised. It's a very good motel, very clean, comfortable, warm welcome at reception with helpful recommendations on dinner and timings for the glaciers and getting through the Haas Pass before it closed. Also good and free wifi. Centrally located and we weren't chased out the door at check out time (like many other motels). We would recommend this as a good option.

Arrived in pouring rain was warmly met and upgraded to lodge. Facilities were great views from the lodge over the snowy mountains excellent. Within walking distance of many places to eat. The staff throughout our stay were so helpful as we had a problem with our hire car and they gladly allowed us to use the phone to call, even though it was a free phone number nothing was too much trouble for them. Worth walking to the hot pools from the motel. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed here in December 2013 and were really surprised at how great this was. The facilities were good and the location is great too. WIFI was provided. Would highly recommend this place! There is nowhere to eat on site but there was a fab restaurant about 50m down the road. You can also easily walk to the hot pools which were about a 10 min walk max.

Not sure if this is just what to expect from Franz Josef - if TripAdvisor claims this is 89% recommended, I can only imagine what the lesser rated ones are like.

In the US, we would definitely consider this place a motel. The room is very simple, many parts feel worn and outdated. The shower has no door (just a curtain) so expect the entire bathroom floor to get wet.
