Stayed here 2 nights in an upstairs room and it was really nice. Very clean, comfy bed and a nice view to the Casino. Close to a few good spots to visit and a great walking track out the front. My only complaint was the very narrow walkway to our room on the top floor right at the end which... More

The room is spacious and clean with full amenities. Location is quite good, just a few minutes drive to the town centre. Free wifi in room, but signal is quite weak. The reception desk will be closed at night time, but there is a phone to facilitate your check in.

We stayed in this motel over Easter, which is a busy time in Hobart. Because of this, we managed to book the last available room, which was one of three on the ground floor. The room was small and a strange shape so there was no room for a table on one side of the bed. And the wardrobe was... More

Great motel. Clean rooms and friendly staff at reception. Good location across the road from Wrest Point Casino. Easy parking and the added advantage of a lift to the rooms - great if you have heavy luggage!

Wheelchair friendly, staff were very friendly. had everything I needed, good value for money. Lots of car park space. Cleaned your room everyday and if you didn't want it, you just had to leave a card on the door.

This motel is really good for the price - really clean, comfy bed, nice shower, the fridge was making a strange noise and there was some sort of electric blanket that kept digging into my face but other than that it was excellent. Great location on the water and right near the casino. A bit far to walk to main... More

We'll put up with the implied threats of the manager again.We stayed here back in September 2015. There had been a stuff up with the room (apparently the travel agent...cough cough) and instead of being given a reasonable room we were stuck in the car park special. Cheaper room.

If you're driving to/in Hobart, Motel 429 is the ideal budget accommodation. It's situation near Sandy Bay which gives you some views from the Motel rooms. There's a Casino (oldest in Tasmania) nearby and it's just a few minutes drive away from the Salamanca Market which opens every Saturday. I also drove to the Mt. Wellington from Motel 429, which...
