Easy for me to get bus to AIS and also to city centre. Everyone is most helpful and friendly. Close to the shops and restaurants. I... More

I wouldn't mind the place being so derelict if the price was lower. Really, I stay in cheap places as often as I can, as I'm usually just there to sleep. If it was $60 or $70/night then I would say value for money. But at $110 it was robbery, even in Canberra. The bath tap ran all night long,... More

Our room had air conditioning plus a heater and electric blankets so though it was minus 7 outside we were warm as toast. Inexpensive, clean, comfortable beds, friendly staff, very good location.

Decided to stay at Lyneham Motor Inn because it was only a quick overnight stay & its location is quite close to what we required. Lyneham shops is a 10min walk, Dickson is a $10 cab ride & GIO Stadium is a 10 min car trip away. However .... Look, these rooms were under $100 per night, so you can't... More

We only needed somewhere to sleep after a late sporting match before heading home early the next morning. Check in staff were nice and I had been warned about the room, old and tired and put the heaters on before you go out.
