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...

Friendly managers. Very basic rooms. The rooms are a good size with ensuite bathroom but the amenities are budget basic . Our room 23 had queen and single beds, tiny TV,Tiny microwave and tiny fridge. The room is spacious enough to please any guests and a few simple improvements would go a long way.. There are so many motels along... More

We stayed at the Shearing Shed on the recommendation of a friend. The room was a bit dated but clean, and we found it to be very quiet. The 2 bedroom room had air conditioning although we found it a bit noisy so left it off (the night time temperature was pretty cool anyway). Both bedrooms had a tv. Very... More

My employer booked me into this motel, and admittedly I may be a bit over-critical as I usually stay in luxury motels not 'value' ones, but I cannot put up with finding hairs in the bed! Two medium and two shorter hairs found in between the old thin and yellowed looking sheets. Really ought to do the laundry and cleaning... More

We were a group of 5. My wife and I stayed in the 2nd bedroom, and the other 3 female singles slept in the main room. We stayed there twice in a 4 day trip to Condobolin. The motel itself was of a fairly high standard, although we didn't eat there. Good TV reception in both rooms, comfortable beds, and... More
