This motel is simple and basic. The staff were friendly. It was a place just to rest our heads at the end of the day. The rooms were neat and had the facilities we needed. It's very close to public transport and the Lyneham shops. We walked everywhere. I'm not sure why other reviews whinge about with this place as...

In all my travels both in Australia and overseas this was the most disgusting "accommodation" I have ever experienced. The bathroom was dirty, broken toilet bowl, cracked basin and overall atrocious. I do not have a good word at all for this motel and I suggest it be avoided. I do not understand how such an establishment is still allowed...

We were recommended this place by some fellow travellers we ran into at Parliament House. Really glad we did because for the comfortable clean accommodation the rate was great. It's an older motor in place unlike most expensive trendy hotels in Canberra. Comfortable beds, good showers and very clean. Location is also pretty good close to city centre and to...

Clean and with a friendly receptionist but well and truly overdue for renovation. Towels were threadbare and the shower curtain was past its use by. Good location and price but you can find newer, fresher hotels out near the airport if you have a car.

If you only want a basic budget Motel in a city where most hotels are understandably very pricey then this iMotel in Lyneham is OK. It is an old motel and looks it.No frills, just basics eg microwave and kettlle. It suited me this time.

When parliament was sitting, and everything else was booked out, Lyneham Motor Inn came to our rescue. We checked in at 11:99 am (see photos), and were greeted by immaculate attention to detail... from the flawlessly repaired basin cracks (see photos) to the vinyl-cushioned leaning area. There was also a phone in the bathroom, in easy reach of the toilet...

You should get what you paid for and this trip away we are just staying in budget accomodation, so our expectations are not high. This motel had absolutely nothing going for it. From the lady who took our money at the front desk, who could not crack a smile or make one single comment to make me feel welcome to...

The WORST place on gods earth. Omg!!! The room was mouldy, full of pests, the shower curtain was black with mould, the bath was filthy, cobwebs everywhere, rusty fridge that I was afraid to open. Avoid at all cost. Stay at your own peril this so called hotel / council bin hasn't been updated or cleaned since the 1970's. The...

When I visit Canberra I try not to book over priced accommodation. This place is just Perfect located and reasonable priced clean and very quiet. It is closed to parks, shops and the trendy Restaurants.

I booked this accommodation because all others in my price range were already booked. This is a very old and dated motel. It does have parking and WiFi, that doesn't work. It also didn't have hand towels, shampoo or a toaster. Other than this it has all the basics. The room was quite, until heavy machinery started working right outside...
