This was a quick trip to Dubbo and this motel was centrally located, with pleasant staff, wifi, and a clean room. For one night (or two), it was fine. The room was not big but it was adequate for what we needed.

We stayed overnight whilst making the long haul down the Newell with a very grumpy cat in tow. The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Definitely worth the stay if travelling with pets.

Ok motel for a night, beds need to be softer bit like sleeping on the floor. Maybe need up grading to new beds. Carpets needs gleaning, probably needs an overhaul. I stay at a lot of Choice hotels, this one needs a bit of attention. Would not stay on next visit. Host very nice

Booked a "pet friendly" room for family of 4 travelling interstate with 2 cats but room did not accommodate as only 1 bed. However, hotel manager provided us with another room which was more than adequate and suitable for the entire tribe! And... we were only charged the standard rate. Would definitely recommend to other travellers with pets. Thank you... More

We were traveling from Toowoomba to Canberra and Dubbo and we were looking for a motel that we could have a dog in. The motel is showing it's age, however it is comfortable and had everything we wanted for a good nights sleep. This motel has 1 room available to have a pet in, so make sure you book before... More

We stayed over the Easter weekend and we found the hotel very comfortable and a good price. We had our two sons with us and they enjoyed the pool and the water playground right across the road. The owners are so friendly and we felt very welcome. Location was convenient and the room was quiet. Good value for money and... More

We were a little disappointed with the Econa Lodge. The rating given doesn't seem to match the description. When we arrived a few minutes early, our room was not ready, so we said we would go shopping. The Owner took my wife aside and offered her other selections of rooms which were ready, but none met our requirements. We left... More

Just 2.5 stars ... not their self rated 3.5 stars. ISSUES: The house manager bell kept going on every ten minutes through the night. There is a layer of grime on many things. There are three separate switches to put on TV or air conditioner. Drinking water was tainted with poxy rose petals. Front door needed considerable pressure to close...... More

Stayed here on the way from Melbourne to Brisbane over Christmas, we had our faithful cocker spaniel with us. Owners were very friendly and accommodating, room is older style but quite comfortable, air con, bed shower all were fine, we will definitely make this out Dubbo stop from now on.

The hotel was ok to stay at. Not a bad price for what it was. The microwave in our room was unable to be used (it was sticky taped up) which was a shame. The pillows were a little on the hard side. The owners were friendly.
