Nice clean room, comfy bed, pretty surrounds. Friendly, helpful staff. Good to have a washer and drier on-site after two weeks in campgrounds. Local pizza place even delivers there. Definitely no spiders in the bed, or in fact anywhere else in the room ;)

This property has a great location if you are not wanting to stay in the City area. Its about a 20minute walk into the CBD area. There are restaurants (at neighboring properties) all within a 5 minute walk. It has BBQ's & kitchenettes in room. An onsite laundry at $5 per wash/dry. Locked property access at night - although not overly secure when it takes a couple of minutes for the gate to open/close.... Reception sell a number of daily amenities & groceries and reasonable prices. Overall, it suited our needs.

2/10 Poor

Checked into room and stayed 30 min. Wanted to lay down for a bit and the second I pulled back the sheets a spider crawled across the bed. I immediately smashed it. Also noticed there was some kind of tree or bush debris in the bed. I knew I couldn’t comfortably stay there so went to check out. I told the girl at the front desk the situation and she said, “This is the outback what do you expect?”And then she said that she would have to charge me for that day since I didn’t want to try another room even though I was there half an hour and I found an insect crawling on the bed. I had already paid for the room because I booked through Travelocity and I figured I’d just handle it when I get home. The hotel refused to refund me at all and said that I had to wait 20 days while they investigated it and wanted to know if I have pictures as if I was lying about the situation. I finally got a refund for the two nights after placing a dispute with my credit card. I’m still upset that they wouldn’t give me the $140 back especially since I found the spider And I did not appreciate a girl telling me that this is the outback and that’s just what’s gonna happen because when I checked into the new hotel, I had no bugs at all in my room. Also, the Wi-Fi is terrible. I had a hard time trying to book another hotel since I hardly had a connection. Checked into the hotel next-door had a wonderful Wi-Fi connection and a nice clean room with no insects plus it had restaurants on site.
