Stayed for just one night between flights.
Very convenient location. You can even walk to a close by Hotel Verde which has both a restaurant and a bar.
The hotel can arrange nice airport pick-up and drop-off, just contact them beforehand.

Staying at the Road Lodge at Cape Town Airport never disappointed me for the last 4 to 5 years . I normally stay there when I have to catch an early morning flight , or arriving late evening as I am from Hermanus .
The staff always friendly and helpful , rooms are clean and it is real value for money .

This accommodation is very convenient for travelers passing through Cape Town airport and needing an overnight stay. It is a short (10-12 min) walk from the airport, straight across the airport parking lot and through a short underpass under Airport rd. Pulling a heavy suitcase the short uphill walk (on sidewalk) to the hotel gate is a hassle, but brief. Request ground floor room if you have heavy luggage. I was comfortable doing the walk in the daytime, but wouldn’t do it at night (single lady).

Although I had a confirmed reservation, the hotel automatically concelled the reservation, even though my flight had not arrived in Cape Town. Desk staff were tardy in addressing the problem. There is no efficient transport option when arriving late at night in Cape Town. Hotel will arrange a very expensive shuttle for what is actually a two-minute trip. Front desk staff were offhand and unable to address these issues satisfactorily

Responded 25 Jan 2021
Thank you for choosing Road Lodge Cape Town International Airport and taking the time to provide feedback on your experience. Our sincere apologies for the various challenges you faced accessing our hotel from the airport and being checked into a room. As we understand, our hotel General manager has made contact with you and we trust the matter has been resolved satisfactorily. Unfortunately, we do not control when the interlinking gate between the hotel and airport is locked, as this is managed by the Airports Company South Africa (ACSA). We advise guests to make use of a shuttle if their flight lands later in the evening, which can be prebooked by our hotel receptionists upon request. The price of the shuttle is determined by that external company, and while normally R80 for a transfer from the airport to the hotel, now costs R180 after curfew. All non-guaranteed rooms – i.e. rooms booked but not yet paid for – are released at 16:00 each day. Our reservations team did try to make contact with you at 14:00 but were unsuccessful. Reservations are guaranteed by booking and prepaying. Regardless, we are so sorry that you arrived at our hotel feeling frustrated and let down by the system and ourselves. We value your business and hope that you will choose to stay with us again.

No elevator to 2nd floor... so 3 flights of stairs to carry your own luggage. I weigh 48 kgs and had a toddler. An elderly porter also helped but I did most of the carrying. 3 x 23kg bags and extra handluggage from international flight.
Rooms are noisy. Booked a garden facing room. Ended up facing driveway. Gate for entry after dark was locked or intercom didn't work so guests requiring entry ended up hooting. This kept us awake and by 1.30 my daughter and I were wide awake. It would've been more comfortable in the airport terminal ..
The room booking advertised free cancellation. This is wrongfully advertised and apparently the room price together with the other fee of $19.90 you pay as the non refundable price are all non refundable doable!!
Free wifi - reception did not offer any wifi codes etc and there was no notice in the rooms.
5am checkout I had to solely carry luggage down whilst male staff stood and watched.
I would definitely not recommend this establishment to anyone . Rather book a chair in the airport terminal. Would be far more practical.
Ps I had a pooling for a date a week later which I needed to change dates for and this I was told was not allowed and I would have to pay for a new booking. Something is seriously lacking in guest relations

Got into the airport on a late flight from Johannesburg and realised it's a Road Lodge, so we did not expect much and that's what we got.
Check in was friendly and efficient, but expect to carry your luggage up stairs- there are no elevators.
The room was small but neat, with two 3/4 beds. The bathroom was very small and the shower minuscule. Those of you who have stayed in Iceland will be comfortable.
However the lingering smell of unwashed male and cigarette smoke ruined the sleep for myself and the other crew, so it's not an isolated thing.
As the other crew member said " we have stayed here twice, the first time and the last time.
A cup of coffee is complimentary in the morning but breakfast is extra.
Honestly? If you are absolutely exhausted crash here, but there are much much better options within a 20 minute Uber drive- rather take the option!

Besides being a very convenient location at the airport we were very impressed by the level of service we received. Friendly and efficient staff. Room was clean and all one needs for a short stay of 1 or 2 nights. We were so impressed that we have already booked our next stay with our visitors that will be flying home.

The breakfast is very basic, but sufficient.

Late arrival in Cape and spent the night at this well located airport hotel. Room and Bathroom are small and clean which served the purpose for an overnight stay and early checkout.

Quicker check in on arrival will make a difference and complimentary airport pick up would be useful. Did not have any meals

The Airport is very close and can be seen from the hotel but due to security do not think walking is advisable, especially at night. The walking "route" that you would have to take is not marked at all and some of the roads do not have pavements for walking. I specifically looked as I was going to walk on my next visit. The shuttle, organized through the hotel, is very efficient.
Answer from Climber24313582068
It is behind the petro station and hard to get there if you are not familiar with the area. It is a long walk, but better to have a car or cab. It is safe to walk.
