The main motel has low cast persons staying, alcolhol, kids running arround.etc. I think they are taking in homeless persons, Then sent to Alpha. No parking, expensive, no movie channels. Awful The curtains that thin that the outside lights shine into the room so you cannot sleep. No sharp knifes, large spoons, masher etc in the kitchen. No hot plates.

Stay away people. This motor Inn is constantly visited by the police. Loud disrespectful people with drinking smoking swearing all hours of the day and night. The inn is presently getting a face lift and looks like it will be quite nice proximity to the CBD is within walking distance as is the Rugby stadium. It is just a shame...

Do not stay in this motel if you want to sleep. I had no sleep due to the noise of what appeared to be permanent residents at this property. Firecrackers going off outside my unit at 11pm, tv's blaring all night, cars coming and going all night. People outside the units talking until 5am! This was a Tuesday night. Also...

The place looked fine from the roadway but the room was just okay,basic, not a standout.To lift this place's rating the owners could spruise it up a bit,it just needed some tender loving care.Not dreadful but not outstanding.The road noise was a bit much to begin with, but did die down later in the evening.I wouldnt rush back here and...

The room was cleaned but the ants walking through the kitchen up the walls tell me that the cleaning schedule is not worth the $180 we payed for the two bed room unit.the cobweb nest in the curtain and around the room look disgusting.The cracked light switches in the bathroom are very dangerous,never ever have I seen such poor maintenance...

Stayed upstairs for one night and only paid $99, so quite good value/price for a motel on the strip in Hamilton. Our unit was a bit dated and tired, but reasonably clean and tidy, certainly not spotless, as there was some mould stains in the bathrrom and on the wall panels. Needs a bit of TLC and a tidy up...

Rooms are a bit dated, but owner was very helpful and it was very clean which is great. one thing I really rated was the amount of shampoo, soaps etc in the bathrooms they really make sure you don't run out of products. 10 points for that. overall an enjoyable stay many thanks :)
