The things that mattered in a motel were great. The bed was comfortable. The unit was clean and the shower worked well. Our room was also quiet, although I worried in case there was anyone below us as the floor squeaked something terrible. I would definitely stay here again. The price was right.

I chose this motel as it was best situated for the persons I wished to visit - on arrival I found a circa 1960's cheaply built poorly maintained establishment - once in the unit found it poorly equipped - no toaster [ they did give me one when I asked] - an old cathode ray TV but a full range...

Only stayed here due to location, thank goodness only one night, staff friendly, room clean, the only down fall is the noise!! Their was sooooo much noise from the floor boards to the traffic and everyone else who was there it was entertaining for some I guess!!! Not for me..

OurResponse360, Public Relations Manager at Sai Motels, responded to this review

Hi Camellia A pity your stay turned out to be so noisy. We do have some loud guests occasionally and situated on the Great South road makes it busy. Do come and stay with us again and perhaps we can offer a quieter room for you, away from the crowds and the noise. Thanks!

Stayed just one night when I couldn't find vacancies in the usual places and don't think I could have taken another. It's not very clean. I suspect "cleaning" is more or less limited to making the bed judging by the chewed fingernail cast offs. It's very noisy from other guests. I stayed in winter and it was very cold. With...

Not a clean room by anyones standards. Mould in the shower. Room not vacuumed during the week I had to endure it. Rubbish piled up next to the already full skip bin to attract rodents and cockroaches which were present in colleagues room. $10 per gig of data and $10 per breakfast which consisted of a $3 packet of cornflakes...

Given the price, we weren’t expecting the Hilton, but I was also not expecting to feel like I WANTED to get a tetanus shot! We chose this motel based on location, we needed to be in that area and the price was cheaper than other accommodation nearby, but there is no way this was worth even half of what we...

The room is big (for a couple with one child), the bed is comfortable and everything was very clean. There are basic cooking appliances (fridge, microwave, mugs, glasses and plates), a private parking and also some stores/restaurants nearby. The problem is noise, lots of noise. Every step inside or outside of your room makes a huge squeak (I was in...

Room is clean and decent. But i lived in the second floor so it is inconvenient for me to carry my luggage upstairs. Fortunately, the owner helped me to carry luggage upstairs. They allocate a parking space which is steep and rocky. There are a lot of area for parking within the motel but they just let us to park...
