How they can even charge for these rooms is a disgrace. Aren't there standards that have to be maintained within the Motel industry, clearly this one has surpassed any inspection. These rooms are a health hazard and a work place health and safety issue, just waiting for an accident to occur. Even after complaining and leaving, still no regard, no refund, nothing. Do not stay at this motel.
Very dingy and grotty. I’m surprised it passes any kind of standard to operate.Huge stains over the smelly carpets. Rusty dinged up fridge. Broken soap dish in mildewed bathroom, very loud thumping music from the night-club next door until 3.00am. Horrible experience
My Mum and I stayed for one Saturday night and the accommodation was exactly as advertised. Photos are accurate and location was ideal. We walked to our Family function held at the Surf Club. Check in lady was pleasant and room was clean and safe. We are returning in 4 weeks for another nights stay. $125.00 per night for a double and single bed twin is fantastic value.
Having grown up in and around Wollongong, it was great to return for a 10 day stay! We cannot speak highly enough of the Motel, and both reception, and housekeeping staff, and already, we're looking forward to coming back. Knowing the shower was going to be hot, and we were guaranteed a good nights sleep, (even when the bar was busy), made our stay most pleasurable.
We stayed here for 3 nights, not over a weekend, as a mini-holiday. Our plans were just to 'wander' around the heart of Wollongong and see what's there. For this purpose, this motel was the perfect choice. Good points are the reasonable price, availability of two beds instead of a double, easy walk to shopping, dining, clubs, the beach, and historical points of interest, off-street secure parking, very friendly staff. The bad points were a lack of basic amenities such as no shampoo-conditioner (we didn't bother bringing our own as most places now have it .. but the grocery was just up the street so not a deal breaker either), only one clothes hanger, the closet which could hold a long dress or skirt was also where the ironing board, etc was stored, no clock, no outdoor amenities at all, not even a place to sit. So, depending on your needs - this one could go either way. The off-street secure parking was a huge plus though I have to admit.…
