I must say that the pictures were somewhat different to the reality. The motel is in a great location, but it is pretty old and pretty tired. The room was reasonably clean, and the bed OK for one night. The bathroom was adequate although there is nowhere in the shower to put anything (ie no niche/ or rack/ or soap dish). The layout was a bit awkward - at the end of the main room was a small room which contained a handbasin, a bench with microwave, a frig and some hanging space. This room had a door, which opened against the hanging area and bench with frig, microwave etc. At the other end of the bench there were some drawers containing a toaster and lots of toast crumbs, and these were blocked by the bin. If you require a hairdryer, I'd suggest taking your own. There was one, but the "safety features" rendered it basically useless. If you do decide to stay here, take care to actually book through the motel - their website is not optimised, and you will probably end up booking through some other site and paying more. Our room was at the back so we did not hear road noise although I suspect it may be quite noise if you get a front room

Do NOT stay here!!! This is NOT a 3 star motel! NOT even a 1/2 star MOTEL would do this justice. The photos online are fake and not reflective of the decrepit state that the rooms are in! The rooms are disgusting, filthy and old -worse than a hovel! We turned around and asked for our money back which the owner (Mark) refused! This is false advertising and illegal! The owner told us that the motel has not been refurbished since 1980!! The place was revolting and we went to find alternate accomodation! We have yet to get our money back!! What a bad place and bad management!DO NOT STAY HERE!!

Stayed with two teenage daughters when visiting friends. The motel was convenient to both Wollongong and Dapto. Was easy to find and very close to amenities like supermarket cafes restaurants. Management was friendly and accommodating and flexible with our needs. It is older style and slightly dated but for two nights was the perfect price. The room was clean and warm and although was compact, there was plenty of room for we needed and we did not feel cramped. Although situated on a busy road, it didn’t disturb us at all as we couldn’t even hear any road noise at all! Would recommended and would happily stay again.

Arrived to find the TV still on.The lamp was broken and hidden behind the microwave. Opened the microwave to see it hadn't been cleaned. Used bathroom to notice dirt had collected on the walls. Almost smashed into wall in front as toilet is so close. I looked at the shower to see black mould. Marks of water down front of cabinets The chairs were marked and torn. One pillow looked used. Hairs in the bed. Closed room and put keys in the return box 9:00pm and drove home. Made for a very long day. And early start the next. It didn't look better in the daylight as I drove past I do not recommend this site

what you see IS NOT WHAT YOU GET!! The room we had smelt old and it was nothing like what the picture displays. Went to have a shower and there was no hot water. My husband and I ran the hot water for over 3 minute and still no hot water. I called reception and the guy turned up about 5 minutes latter, he came into the room turned the tap and and there was hot water instantly, yet my husband and I had it running for ages and nothing. Went to have a shower in the morning and exactly the same thing. let the water run for over 5 minutes and no hot water. The toilet flush also got stuck and was then on continual flush so we had to turn the water off at the toilet. I was left feeling very suspicious of the hotels intentions after my stay here especially after the creepy guy who came to our room when we had no hot water, but suddenly did after he arrived to turn the tap in the bathroom sink. This is the type of hotel that would have hidden cameras to watch the guests. It also advertises a restaurant. which wasn't even open.
