This is a budget motel, affordable, clean, although dated. The noise we experienced from the parking lot directly behind our room cannot be blamed on the motel management. It is what it is and lies with the local police to deal with. To give credit where credit is due, the staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. We requested a non-smoking... More

I recently had to stay in Orange while my husband was in hospital for 2 days. I arrived at the hotel with out a booking, this was not a problem. I was not sure if I would need a second night so only booked one night but was told to let them know as soon as I could if I... More

I was given an upgrade of room upon check-in as the guy at front desk said they were very quiet that night. Later that evening the car park was full, so not sure what that was about but certainly grateful. The rooms are small, but the bed was very comfortable and provided a good night's sleep. There is minimal hanging... More

Thank you for your review of our motel. Due to our great central location, our motel can become quite busy very quickly, but we are pleased you enjoyed your complimentary upgrade. The rooms have been refurbished and are fitted out with the short-stay traveller in mind. Thanks for dining at The Indian Restaurant and experiencing the wonderful cuisine on offer.... More

We stay at the Mid City Motor Lodge every year for our kids basketball finals. Since last year some of the rooms have been renovated which look great and was very much needed. This motel is in a great spot, close to restaurants and the central shopping area. Reasonably priced at $135 a night for a family room.

It's a typical country motel and the decor is dated but I found it clean, staff were helpful and it's very very central. The old cooler/heater worked fine and the electric blanket was very welcome on this cold winter night so I have no complaints. Sure it's not the Ritz, but some of the reviews on here are way over...

Thank you Gary for your review. We are aware of the curtains which the previous owner had installed into the Superior Rooms and they will be changed to block-out in the very near future. We are happy you had a pleasant stay and hope to see you again when you next visit Orange. More

As per the many previous reviews - this place is nothing like the photos shown on their website. A tiny dumpy room that had paint peeling off the ceiling and wall, broken chipped enamel in the hand basin, gap under the door with the cold wind blowing in etc etc.....

As per our previous responses "AustralianFamily99", we do not profess or advertise to be anything but a 3 star motel. We provide clean, affordable accommodation at a very competitive price for Orange. If you required 5 star you perhaps should have booked elsewhere and paid accordingly for that type of accommodation. You did book a "Budget" style room and we... More

This motel is in a great location, very close to the shops and information centre, and over the road from the park. The room was nicely decorated, a very comfortable bed, spotless room and bathroom. The room was reasonably small with only a little storage space, but fine for a short stay. Well-priced and we were very pleased to stay... More

It's Australia's oldest motor inn. Yes, it was renovated in the late 70's, but the original 50's style and charm is still evident here and there. Centrally located and more than enough to pay per night (better value for money than most other options in town). Nothing special, but fine.
