Our room was clean and tidy but very dinghy. WE paid $170 for the night for husband and wife and would have expected a bit better than what we got. Was old, Internet was non exsistant and a party of 32 people staying further down partyed until 3am in the morning. This was very loud and the rule in the...

We recently stayed here for 4 nights and had no issues. We were greeted at the reception and found this to easy and friendly. The room was clean and tidy no issues. We used the pool, but not the spa or sauna. The motel is very close to Supermarkets, mall and rainbows end, plenty of resturant and fast food outlets....

If you like the sound of rumbling trucks and traffic and being on the flight path-plus a cold room with dated furnishings and the smell of air freshener then this is for you. It was 165 for a one bed unit. It was clean and I liked having a bath.

Our unit had two bedrooms plus an open lounge kitchenette. The rooms were a good size. They were very clean and tidy. The service was good. I liked kitchen facilities, especially the dish washer. The pool and spa pool was fun for the family.

I am a tad surprised at the other glowing reviews and must have hit the place on a bad day. A very polite welcome and a very helpful host, but it seems to end there. The rooms down the far end seem to be a hastily knocked up affair. Makes me suspicious as to its original use; a lurking suspicion...

Good location, easy to find. Pretty standard motel rooms, were very clean and functional. Close to shops and food. Was very happy staying here. Was under the flight path but this did not bother me. Check in took a little time but the staff were very friendly. Also good option if visiting Rainbows End, within walking distance.

This was a great motel in which to stay. Friendly, helpful staff and initial impressions about the cleanliness of the room were very pleasing.
