First of all, this is not a bad motel. It's just basic. You get what you pay for. I embarked on a motorcycle tour in august 2014, and stayed in many motels during my one month trip. This is the only one I stayed in where there is no microwave, no dryer, no biscuits, no spare pillow, no spare blanket,... More

Clean, central basic hotel, close to everything. We stayed April 2 and also had no hot water in the morning. C'mon management, you need to get it sorted. It is dragging your rating down, which is a shame.

Rooms were very clean with decent bed, pillows and blankets! The only thing that i was disappointed about was that in the morning there was no hot water so having a shower was a bit of a nightmare...other then that, the staff were extremely helpful and a nice restaurant with great food.

No hot water for a shower in the morning. Not cheap accommodarion but cheaper than others for orange. Was pretty noisy too. Rooms were fresh & clean which was nice. Checking in service was friendly & efficient.

On business in Orange for a few days I needed a quiet and comfortable room and I got it at the Occidental Hotel Motel. Situated a block off the main street the Occidental is quiet, has plenty of parking and a good standard of room. The room was quiet, had comfortable beds and a great air conditioner, necessary because of... More

The occidental was easy to find, easy check in by a friendly guy and had great access to parking and shops close by. The rooms were decent size, clean and great price I would recommend them to anyone just be warned they didn't have a microwave, a little tricky trying to heat a baby's bottle but with a kettle and...

I haven't seen a bathroom like that since nanna's fibro Bankstown cottage, circa 1958. Not sure how they can seriously charge $130 a night for the "family" room. Sleeping in my car probably would have been a smarter option. Just no.

The room was clean but very basic. It had a nice TV but no radio. The bathroom would have been familiar to my mother. It looked like it had been built just post war. They do not have internet (but they say this up front). They do not provide a phone, a hair dryer, shampoo, biscuits. The furniture is very... More

I haven't stayed at this motel since 1975 and it seemed to be pretty old then. The Oxy is in a very convenient part of the CBD with everything within walking distance. The rooms have obviously been freshened up since 75 but they are still very basic. The bathroom for instance has a reasonable new vanity but the tiles are... More

4 of us went to Orange from Parramatta Sydney, for 2 days, looking to see what services we could help/ give a hand to for the Homeless in your area. We stay at the Occidental Motel whilst we were there. Room's very comfortable in size. At one stage we had a catch-up time with a friend in one room and... More
