VERY old hotel. Stayed here 3 nights with my husband while attending an event in nearby Wollongong. Outdated decor and amenities, but clean and comfortable enough. 2 out of 3 nights quiet, last night could hear person in next room snoring all night & then talking & smoking on the balcony at 3am = bad nights sleep. Thin walls indeed....

Accommodation options are limited in Dapto. We stayed for 2 nights at Elisnor as we were in town for a wedding. The accommodation is old/worn and the layout of the room is a bit weird, but we were comfortable here for the two nights. Owner is very helpful. If you need a taxi, he can arrange one for you quickly!

Stayed here over night. Very comfortable older style motel. Has an indoor heated pool with a spa and we had a spa in our room. The bed was very comfortable and overall very clean. I stayed here as it is only a few minutes drive to the German club and back into the city centre

I was charged 5% for using Amex, presumably 3% is the maximum they are allowed to charge, and I was not advised of the surcharge when I was paying either of my accounts. So he is making an extra 2% profit if you pay with Amex.

The best thing about this motor lodge was the manager and staff. They were just so helpful and looked after us very well. The buildings are old and are super basic but comfortable. The bed was fine and it had the TV and a wheel in shower. However the doors are very narrow and in order to get access to...

Room was clean & well presented. We stayed in a twin room that had a queen sized bed & a single. It looked exactly as it appeared in the photographs. We only stopped for one night. We were quite impressed with how nicely the room was presented & bedding was very comfortable. The bathroom was very small, a little older...

while the room was a little dated, it was very well furnished, the bed was great, and it was so clean! we will be back to stay for certain! the location was near some shops so we could grab a few snacks and have a nice quiet evening.
