The room needed a very good clean and freshen up. The sliding door for the bathroom was just holding on with only 1 mount, the other was broken and the door dragged and jammed. The bed was tired and one could feel the inner springs in places, the pillows were hard and little give in them. Had to walk past...

Friendly check in great free parking but that's where it stops. The room was filthy I know its budget but the rooms so badly need a good scrub, the linen was so thin and old and did not smell nice and fresh , there was toothpaste down the tiles and was still there when we left. The shower floor needs...

Stayed here for two nights. Check in was pleasant. Plenty of parking, rooms are a bit old. some rust and dust, but clean enough. Location is great, just off the Hwy. We walked into the town, takes an hour. But caught the bus back. The pool has no sun beds, just a hole in the floor so that was a...

Having stayed at Jacksons a number of times over the past few years I have always found is well located and affordable. However, my precious visit I noticed that the standards had dropped. My son and I stated here a couple of days before Christmas. We checked in a immediately noticed the cleanliness or lack thereof. We went out for...

Arrived to find dust & fluff everywhere in room, & I mean everywhere.

I've given this place 5 stars as we really enjoyed our stay. I was very nervous staying here due to the reviews given, but you know what... It's was good! We paid $70 a night and stayed for 2 nights in an economy double room. It is outdated and tired and there were a few minor things wrong with it...

We needed a sleep and go after arriving late one Saturday night on a long haul flight and domestic connection in Sydney before heading off home – another 2.5 hours’ drive the next day. The motel is located just 13km from Adelaide airport – 25 minutes with light traffic. Check-in was efficient and we headed for our room promptly –...

The room was dirty and smelt like urine. The bathroom was mouldy and had cracked tiles. The bathroom floor was filthy. I wouldn't let me dog board here. We didn't end up staying the night, couldn't obtain a refund as there was no one at the front desk. Guess you get what you pay for - NEVER AGAIN.
