58 On Cron Motel
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Franz Josef
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 February 2013

Stayed only one night and glad chose Franz Joseph instead of Fox Glacier and this motel in particular.
Easy walk to everything. Rooms very modern, not large but nicely furnished and equipped. The lady on reception took time to explain to everyone town attractions and show to room. I needed something printed and couldn't have been more helpful. Great laundry all coin operated. You'll not be disappointed here. Great view from kitchen window...will try to upload.

Great motel with big clean rooms. The beds were very comfortable and enough room for all our stuff (a family of four). The motel is right opposite the hotpools, you have to visit these. Close to town centre and the views are fantastic. Access to a washing machine and dryer. Staff very welcoming and friendly.

we only stayed one night in franz josef glacier. enjoyed our stay at this motel, you have a big comfy bed, enough room for your clothes, a modern bath and a kitchenette for making a coup of coffee. it's close to the town center and the owners are friendly and efficient. there is also air conditioning to warm up the room, essential at the time we were there, it was cold and rainy outside.

We were impressed with the staff - they we're very nice and even made good on an offer we found on the Internet.

True display of integrity on price mistake. Thank you!

Room was great, modern bathroom, with nice kitchenette. The Internet access was a "purchase MB download" deal, which sucks because wifi should be free, it's such a cheap perk!

I would recommend this place. It was great.

Only stayed for one night whilst doing the glacier tour but really liked this motel. Had everything you need for a comfortable stay. We had a massive spa bath which was excellent. The owners were really helpful and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable and I had a great nights sleep. I would have been happy to stay longer and would stay again if I was visiting. Everything is within close walking distance and there is ample parking. Great motel.

Room Tip: The spa bath rooms are good fun

First we were made to feel very welcome. We booked a studio spa unit which was almost new.
The unit was large, especially the bathroom, very clean and had a very comfortable king bed.
The complex is less than 5 minutes walk from the cafes and shops.

We recommend 58 On CRon, although expensive.

We stayed in a standard studio. Nice modern clean room with a decent bathroom and adequate kitchenette. Reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. We would happily stay there again although it is a bit expensive - but there's not much competition in Franz Joseph.
