Stayed here recently for business. Although the nightly rate is on the low side it was disappointing. Room was tired, out dated furniture in the room I was provided. The bathroom, a pool of water on floor near the toilet surprised me. I couldn't establish where it was from. The whole experience left me cold as the air conditioning unit... More

That photo of the Shearing Shed is nothing like a room I've seen at the place! The bed was nothing like that and old lamps were beside the beds not those fittings shown in the photo. Don't think I'd stay again.

The people were very friendly, however we found this Motor Inn in need of a makeover and updating. The carpet was so disgusting we didn't want to take our shoes off. The breakfast was not very appetising but the owners were very friendly and helpful

Recently stayed for one night on our return to Melbourne from Queensland. We'd had car trouble throughout the day so was happy just to make it to Dubbo before dark. The rate was cheaper than the Aberdeen Sundowner just up the road and seemed much quieter too. The shower was good, no noise to disturb us and we had a... More

The room was so disgusting, we asked for a refund and were denied. We were then moved to another room which wasn't any better. This is very dosappointing and I most definitely would not be recommending this motel to anyone!

Spacious clean room, nice ensuite, comfortable bed .... add to this friendly helpful owners and you have a beaut spot to stay either overnight as with us, or for an extended stay. The Motor Inn is on a busy road, but the rooms are set back so there is no highway noise. Within easy walking distance to shops and across... More

We stayed in Dubbo last night after traveling from Newcastle, we only wanted a Budget motel and this was more than suitable, compared to a recent stay at Rydges Bass Hill during this trip, they (Rydges) could learn a lot from the Shearing Shed Motor Inn, free Wifi, free Soap, shampoo, body wash, body lotion, and shaving cream dispensers. yes...
