2nd visit, 2night stay at this property. Found the room good for a short stay, very centeralised to everything in the area. It Did the job. Easy to get to. First morning had housekeeping knock on door to clean up room while we were getting ready for the day. Dont know if they didnt know we were staying 2 nights instead of the 1. We were lucky we had chain on door. On site thai restuant was good. Didnt have to go far for dinner. However it did change hands / name change since last visit. Down side is that the Room this time didnt have a dvd player in it. Purchased cheap 1 from jb hifi. The room doesnt have a microwave either to heat up left over food if needed to. Lastly, beds can be more comfy. Single bed in twin room was bit hard to sleep on due to the steel frame it was on, and a bit too high as well. Was more comfy on the double bed with the friend i was with to watch tv. (He didnt mind) Also, price had gone up a little as well since last visit.

Booked here last minute for a footy shift at Win Stadium. Very easy to get too and so close to stadium & shopping centre. Approx 5 mins to everything. Only problem, needed wifi passwords to be printed/ displayed in rooms instead at reception, esp for those who come back late from work etc. Other than that very tidy & quiet & good location. May stay again if need too. Good pricing for room too.

My wife and I stayed for two nights and we found the accommodation basic but convenient to town and beaches/harbour. Nothing special but cheap compared to other options. The restaurant attached Roses is very good and BYO

My wife and I booked into this motel through the iHub in Wollongong. The clue is in the title - it is a budget motel, but it is clean and comfortable and we found the South African managers to he very friendly and helpful - excellent local recommendations. Both nights we ate at the nearby Collegians Rugby Club at their suggestion - first class food and cheap drinks. We had a room on the upper floor with a nice balcony but it is in the middle of an industrial area so the near scenery isn't up to much. We had two reasonable night sleep but a burglar alarm one night prevented me calling them excellent. Cheap and cheerful - you could do a lot worse if budget is an issue.

We were just arriving from our flight and this was the first motel we have checked in. We asked for a room away from the busy road, and was given one, as it was a lull period as such there wasn't much occupants either to make any noise so we can have our good night's rest for your road trip. The room is adequate for 2 person and parking is great, so do not have have to lug our luggage all over the place, bear in mind you got to go up a few steps. All in it was good enough for the pricing and location, but there is not much food around to fill our stomachs after dark, luckily we got a rental car to drive around for our food hunt.
