Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I booked two nights at this motel for a business trip. The day prior to my booking I received a confirmation email, but on arriving at the motel was told that there was no booking for me and they had no vacancies. The manager explained that this is happening regularly now, as their bookings are run through a centralised system.

Worst stay of my life. For just under $200 a night there is no reception, no cleaner or cleaning materials, stairs that would not meet Health and Safety Conditions. The manager would promise towels which never turned up. How do we clean the toilet? clean up crumbs off the floor, no tea towels for our dishes. We stayed 5 nights and the manager was quick to swipe our credit card but we had to BEG him to come to reception to deal with waiting visitors.

Since covid this motel has been run into the ground. DO NOT STAY HERE. Very substandard quality. Advertised as 3 star motel. What a Joke!! Tarrifs exorbitant A camping ground would have cabins of higher stanndard. False advertising stating facilities avaliable.... (Restaurant and Bar Conference facilities) ....... None of these were operating ........They are still adverting them on their Website ....... There were no notices in the Reception diclaiming the non operational Restaurant & Bar ........ The Reception was never maned at the indicated times. ........ The Duty Managers spoke unintelligible English ....... The Duty Manager argued rather than offering solutions as they arose, crossing the most basic of customer service standards, just totally rude. ...... Not even a continental breakfast was avaliable or offered, even the lowest rated motels offer this service. ....... There was not even a welcome folder in the room, suggesting other eating establishments ....... The tourist booklet was dated 2016 how shoddy, total lack of consideration for travellers needing up to date information. ...... I coudnt even use my own grocery items as there was not even a toaster, or microwave in the room. ...... There was a an avacado size stain and four more stains on the couch. ....... There were multiple stains on the duvet cover ....... There was no expellair in bathroom (this is now a legal requirement under current building standards, not a optional extra) ...... Bathroom had a small 8inch square window which took 1/2hr to demist even with the door open. ....... The shampoo canister in shower collapsed first time used. ........ The shaver socket was not secure, so posed a serious lethal electocution hazard for young children ........ There were the barest miniumm of sky channels avaliable, with no instructions to even access them. Overall Champers Motel was the most discusting motel I have ever had the displeasure of staying in. Fortunately for me I managed to block my credit card & only paid for one of the two nights I stayed.

Good and safe location. Clean rooms. The bathroom is fully stocked with body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizer and of course there are a lot of nice, clean towels. Friendly and helpful staff. Overall, you can't beat the location and the price. The service is great and I really enjoyed our stay. I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends.

Best value ever. The room and bed were clean. The host did his best to help us with any issues and knew how to appreciate the customer. Internet was fast enough. Will definitely go back here next time in town for an affordable place to sleep. The wifi worked great to upload pics at the end of a day sightseeing.

My wife and I have just had 5 days in this motel. Both the unit (24) and the "management" are appallingly bad. We booked at short notice as everywhere else was all booked up and the one available unit at this place (or so they said) was the most expensive. The place is in a slow state of decay with dodgy facilities from the poor cleanliness, the useless shower, the useless TV to the toilet seat taped into place. The new management clearly don't have a clue about customer service - we got the impression that they are only interested getting your money and giving nothing for it. Their ability to communicate is non-existent, not helped by their poor ability, or unwillingness, to understand English. As the shower was non-functioning we had to badger these guys to offer a solution (note that they did not offer a solution voluntarily) but the solution was unacceptable - we had learned not to trust them. Note that the booking process required full payment at time of online booking. They had our money and were clearly not intending to offer any kind of recompense. Thieving scum.

This was the worst motel I've ever stayed at. It was very overpriced. The customer service was terrible, from the moment of check in to handling complaints. It was grubby around the edges - dirty walls, dirty light switches, sticky chairs. There was no power point in the kitchen, so I had to boil the water on the floor. The toilet seat was broken and badly repaired so it slipped to the side when sitting on it. The shower head needed to be propped up. The rooms smelt of fat. Some of the nets were ripped and they were all dirty. The cleaners were nice but very haphazard. On the second morning, the shower suddenly went cold. The managers took all day to call the plumber - when he arrived he actually took the mixer away and we were told we needed to use the bath. For 1.5 days after the plumber had been, the hot water ran a rusty brown colour. It was only when we complained loudly and often that we were offered another property that these people manage, but we refused, because that place had a lower overall score and we didn't want to end up in a worse position. We were offered absolutely no other compensation, even though we asked for it. Do NOT book here if you want a normal, clean, well functioning, fairly priced motel with good customer service.

This a very good hotel. The location is great with only a few blocks away from the restaurants and shopping. The bed was comfortable and we didn't have any issues. Appreciate how the room comes with a kitchen too and it's definitely one of the spacious hotel rooms! Definitely a good value in a town and location was walking distance for seeing the sites!
