Firstly walked in the room and it smelt horrible. The bathroom was filthy. Only one out of 4 lights in the room worked. I could hear the person next door snoreing. I used my own bedding as the pillow was damp and the blanket had black hair all other it. I wish we read the review before we booked.

This motel is terrible, unclean and needs a huge reno. Paid $65 for the night. Although on highway wasnt that noisy, Would never stay here again, Do yourself a favour and pay the extra to stay somewhere else

As the queen of budget motels, I tend not to be fussy about aging rooms, however I think The Mercury could do with a wee upgrade. It's cheap, yes, so it's not realistic to place high expectations on the facility, but the extremely old fridge was rusting, the bottom of the room's door had the wood cracked and splintering up,...

I stayed here for one night with a friend as a base from which to visit Temora the next day for the big Warbirds Downunder show (it was the cheapest hotel I could find within striking distance). For the money it was a good deal. The bloke at reception was friendly enough and check-in was quick and no fuss. The... More

Ok so it's not the fanciest motel in town but its not too bad either. For the price it had everything you would need for a stay of a night or two. The managers are very friendly and helpful. The room cleaning wasn't perfect but we felt comfortable and enjoyed he stay. I would recommend for a short stay if... More

The stench as we walked in nearly floored us. We searched for the dead animal but couldn't locate it. We froze as the air con didnt work properly. So next step was to have a hot shower to warm up. Dumb move. When the hot water finally came through it was a trickle. No need to use cold water. Not... More

I recently stayed here for 2 nights. For that money I was expecting a pretty big dive but at the end of the day all I wanted was a bed, shower and toilet and more money in my pocket to do other things. This motel wasn't as bad as I was expecting. She's pretty old and busted but the grounds... More

I don't know why I picked this motel for an overnight stay on the way to Melbourne but I won't make the same mistake again. I had a bad feeling when the bell was answered by a bloke who looked as if he had been cleaning out a septic tank. Not only was his general appearance unprepossessing but he turned... More

Basic, but cleanish rooms. Had to use the shower to fill the kettle. Chipboard under the fridge dessicated (?mice nibbling away) -- gawd I hope not. Masking tape holding air conditioning together. Towels had holes and old marks on them. Grumpy old lady for a cleaner. Other than that...
