Lovely people but the motel is quite tired. At the price it was ok but it was advertised as reduced by $100 for the night we stayed. I am glad I didn't book it at full price. Please replace the smoke alarm would be the major concern. The loo was interesting size wise(Glad by large hubby wasn't with me). The... More

ParklaneMotorLodge, Manager at Parklane Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Hi Clare -we truly appreciated you highlighting the missing smoke alarm in the room. Smoking in rooms is prohibited and past guests have tried to thwart this by removing the smoke alarms - a fact we are unaware of until someone like you draws our attention to it. Parklane Motor Lodge is a unique building and we are excited about... More

Nothing flash but has everything you need. Good shower, comfy beds and friendly staff. If I had to nit pick I would say the light switches are in odd places and the TV channels are all over the place. The pillows aren't great but there's plenty of them if you need to reach your desired pillow height.

Thank Nicole T
ParklaneMotorLodge, Manager at Parklane Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Hi Nicole - your review made me chuckle and your "nit-picking" is on point. The TV - including the channels & remotes have proven to be the bane of our existence - and one we are working diligently to address. Appreciate you taking the time to post up a review and look forward to welcoming you again. More

Hi John & Kathy. Having recently taken over management of Parklane Motor Lodge I have found it extremely enlightening to read the reviews of past guests. Whilst it is heartening to read your comments on the great staff - the fact that you needed to request a mattress topper is not ideal. The architecture of the Motel is unique however,... More

I stayed here due to an expo across the road at the Showgrounds which made the location perfect. The hosts met us and provided an excellent welcome and service, same on leaving.

A welcome that was friendly, with good information provided on local eateries, and directions. Accommodating in requests. The room however, was very tired and in need of some repairs. Stains on the carpet, when I sat on the floor the smell of the carpet was noticeable. Window blinds, some missing meaning a good lack of privacy from other rooms. Electrical... More

This is a lovely place, and I used to book here regularly. My experience at checkin was the worst I've ever had in over 15 years of travelling. Will never return here. Arrogant and disgusting manager onsite.

The bathroom has no windows. It is narrow and moisty. Some rooms are located upstairs, with no lift to carry the luggage. Blankets were dirty and smelly. Horrible. Ongoing civil works by the hotel made it very hard to sleep.
