Cons: I will never stay at this hotel again. There is something evil on the 6th floor that severely traumatized my family. After doing some online research I learned we were not the first people to have an experience like this. A man nearly committed suicide in the same room within the last 6 months. There was another incident about 1 year ago. I know not everyone will believe this but one of my family members woke up with marks around their throat. I think it is despicable that the hotel allows this room to be used. DO NOT STAY IN RM 601. It is haunted by an evil spirit.

7.1 Good
Pros: The breakfast was fantastic! The sausages were delicious! There were only small plates available but it worked out okay and the restaurant itself was very comfortable. We liked the availability of the outdoor patio during breakfast.
Cons: The patio was not open between breakfast and dinner. We would have sat on the patio during the day and enjoyed a beer or some wine in the afternoon. The entrance and restaurant were nicely decorated and seemed well kept while the rooms (we had two) were old with wallpaper curling and terrible decor. The beds were comfortable however but it wasn't a very cheery room by any stretch, and both were corner suites.

Pros: Very good breakfast
Cons: I found it strange that ,since we stayed two nights, the soaps that we used the first night were removed and replaced with new ones, so we had to open a new one for one more use.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is in a wonderful place, just beside the harbour. Above the beautiful board walk of Sydney. The harbour view is impeccable. The rooms are clean and spacious. Staffs are very helpful. The dinner of the restaurant Trio in the hotel is very good.
Cons: 1. The breakfast included in the hotel fare is very basic. 2. The bathroom and toilet is separated from the vanity basin table, which we are fine with. But the vanity basin room is connected with the bedroom, with carpet floor! I resumed that the carpet is easy to get wet. I tried to block the stream on the table with towels but the thought made me very uncomfortable (of the carpet got wet all the time by previous users). If the carpet can be changed into tiles, same as the bathroom, it will make a huge difference.
7.9 Good
Pros: The room was large clean with a great view. Old hotel in need of an overhaul but location, staff and room size made up for that .
Cons: It's a very tired facility.

Pros: The staff were very professional and pleasant. The restaurant food was excellent and the waitress very friendly.
Cons: This place needs a major overhaul. They still have swag lamps hanging, and I am sure they are the same ones when this motel was built.

Cons: The signs at the breakfast buffet to tip the waitress
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: The staff were rude upon arrival because I used a visa debit card for the reservation and they told me that it was not a "major credit card" and they'd let it go this time but I had to pay in full and also pay $100 damage deposit. I've never had that happen before. The first night was fine but nights 2 and 3 were awful as we were left in the dark for two nights and didn't check on any guests or offer flashlights or candles. I was told on check out that we should have canceled our trip, stayed elsewhere or come hurricane prepared. Honestly we were in town for my nephew's wedding and had no alternative accommodation hence booking at that hotel. The place is nothing special but it would have been fine if the staff AND management are rude and have no clue about hospitality or customer satisfaction. Worst experience ever!!!

Pros: Great breakfast and staff accommodated our request for a water view room at no additional cost
Cons: Bathroom was in need of a little love
4.0 Okay
Pros: Got charged on my credit card for the price of the hotel plus an additional 100 then had to pay with my debit on checkout not realizing my credit card had already been charged...so now I'm waiting 5-10 days to get $369 back
5.0 Okay
Pros: Gentleman helping with luggage and information. He was a delight.
Cons: I understand the storm affected the stay. Was not informed of having no power until after the payment went through and it is non refundable. Was not compensated in any form for the inconvenience. The desk clerk did not inform me to take a flashlight. Had to figure that out for myself. Could not charge the phone. Asked to use theirs to make a call. Was not informed of using outside line and had to ask about it. The service was the poorest I have ever encountered in my travels. One of the worst stays that probably could have been a please t one even with no power.
6.3 Good
Pros: Location was good enough, thats about all you can say for a travelodge.
Cons: In all honesty, considering we were at the hotel right after Hurricane Dorian, it was ok, we were without power for about 36hours but out of the hotels hands so no complaints really. Wifi wasn't great even when it was working for my android device, apple device worked fine.
7.0 Good
Cons: Carpets do not look clean, at least need more vacuuming. No glasses in the room. Very loud air/heat system.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff were all really helpful. Buffet breakfast was tasty - lots of choice and re-stocked often. Room (Standard King) was *so* much bigger than we were expecting and the bed was huge!
Cons: Nothing, just to note a bit south of the main town centre and a bit north of the strip malls.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Close to downtown Sydney, NS - easy to find. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
Cons: No elevator (my fault for not checking). Hotel is old and needs renovation. Room smelt musty. Hallway had large stains on the carpet. We used hot tub and my wife almost fell into it because the hand rail is not secure - I expected better for the price.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Easy access & easy to find
Cons: I had no idea there was no elevator until I arrived to check in. I have mobility issues & had to walk up & down stairs to get to our room which ended up being in the basement. The hotel was fully booked & we couldn’t change rooms. It was very rundown & the bathroom had rust around every metal surface - bathtub edge, ceiling tile frame, door frame. The breakfasts were good & breakfast staff were very pleasant. Next time I book a hotel, I’ll call the hotel directly to make sure of accessibility. Would I stay there again? Probably not.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Bed was comfy
Cons: No restaurant

2.5 Mediocre
Cons: We did not stay!
5.4 Okay
Pros: Hotel clerk and owner were both very nice and friendly. Our ferry crossing had gotten cancelled due to weather and this motel is very close to Marine Atlantic Ferry. Beautiful and very quiet area that does not have high traffic volume.
Cons: Hotel clerk and owner were both very nice and friendly however motel decor needs to be updated, I'm sure it was a beautiful spot back in the 80's but there is still panel board on walls and a musty smell in the rooms and the floor in the family room (room we stayed in) is not level and drops down as you walk. Discovered in the morning that the shower had not been cleaned after previous guest as there was still hair and debris in shower bottom and used soap in shower on shelf and no refill for tissue paper. Sadly once we discovered this it certainly made us doubt the cleanliness of the whole room. Once I informed the owner of this he did apologize and offer to send the cleaning staff right over but by this time we were disappointed and a little disgusted so we graciously declined his offer and checked out.

5.8 Okay
Pros: The staff was very friendly. Good location. Comfortable firm bed.
Cons: Time for a bit upgrading. Everything a bit outdated. The curtain was falling apart. Not even a small soap to wash your hands with. On the reservation it said they offer continental breakfast but the guy in front desk stated that they only offer this fro June to the end of August, but offered that we can help ourselves in the morning whatever is left over from summer months.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Comfy, clean, great location and reasonably priced :)

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The family room was fantastic. The host was lovely and helpful.
Cons: The breakfast options were very littled to toast, cereal and oatmeal. Would have loved to see yogurt, apple juice and english muffins as options as well, these are usually standard options at most other motels. I know you can not please everyone.
7.5 Good

5.0 Okay
Cons: I don't think the bed was changed out. lots of wrinkles . sheets plus pillow cases. blinds broken. latches on door not working. musty smell. didn't feel comfortable being there by myself. looked out the back window and saw staff person looking in back window of another motel room from back garden. wasn't sure what he was looking for. just made me uncomfortable. building looked ok from street.

7.9 Good
Pros: The room was clean.
Cons: The room was too cold when we arrived. The bathroom tub was dripping It couldn't be turned to stop the dripping. Since I only drink green tea, I couldn't get hot water. The walls are very thin, so there was a lot of noise in the hall and a lot of banging.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful stay for the price. Clean, lovely rooms, good facilities (including coin laundry, most staff great and attentive, by the water, convenient location.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Food at onsite restaurant is great. Location right by the water, excellent. Also close to central Sydney, so within walking distance to most things. Staff was terrific and room was very comfortable and large.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Despite the bland and dated decor, the rooms were clean. Our room was at the back and on the middle floor that allowed a nice view at the harbour.
Cons: The exterior of the hotel had character but its rooms were bare and did not match the quaintmess one would expect for this establishment. The beds were not that comfortable and after 4 nights staying at the hotel, we were ready to leave. This hotel is fine for a short stay in Sydney but if one is staying longer then two nights, I would recommend another hotel. The pub and restaurant that is a part of the hotel has potential but could do more to draw in customers like a free continental breakfast or a discounted drink to expose patrons to the decor of the restaurant and view from the patio.
7.5 Good
Pros: Staff was terrific
Cons: Old and rooms were not equipped.
6.7 Good
