This place was more like a back packers than a motel. The management were horrible and very rude. Basically the only time we were acknowledged was when we checked in. They never said hello or hope you had an enjoyable stay, absolutely nothing. Would never stay here again and l would advise others not to as well.

I stayed in a family room with my 2 teenage children for 2 nights. Positives: a very large, clean room with air conditioning, large fridge and microwave. Drawbacks: the room needed some repairs but the manager was responsive to my feedback. The pool was clean, but also in need of some renovations. Toiletries provided for one person only in a... More

The Lazy River Motor Inn is a bit old and tired, but it is clean and well taken care of, and not a bad place to stay for a few nights. The owners were friendly and the breakfast menu looked pretty good, although we didn't order from it due to family commitments elsewhere. The pool was really cold, but the... More

Tired old motel that needs to be freshened up, tiny ensuite and basin in main room which was annoying. Main room was spacious, location not too bad, price was good for what you got. Lyn was friendly, beds comfy, nice and quiet, just a shame it's a bit old and tired.

A good basic level of accommodation. Everything was clean & tidy. Aircon worked well in +40 temps. Staff were there if you needed anything. Pool area was also clean & tidy and was a welcome relief in the heat. Overall we couldn't fault our stay there.

What can I say? The stay at the hotel was ok BUT it was when we left that the drama started. When I booked this motel via booking.com I requested a double bed and single bed. When we arrived we were given a double bed. I immediately went to the front desk and they said that I need to pay... More

This person’s booking was for 2 people. I have a copy of the booking from the online booking agency which clearly states double or twin share room. As the booking was for 2 people, with no mention of preferred bedding configuration, the booking was allocated a double room by the computer site she booked with which is standard procedure. Had...

We stayed in the luxury of a room with a hot tub for a very reasonable price, so can not comment or judge other rooms. This room did not disappoint. Everything was as stated and pictured on Booking.com including the free WiFi. Outside pool would have been good if it had been hot weather. Parking was conveniently right next to... More

A lovely motel on the Murray River. Friendly and helpful owners. The motel was clean and fresh. Conveniently located. The room was in good repair, freshly painted, clean, new carpet, functional and all the appropriate motel necessities and niceities were available.I was travelling as a solo woman and felt safe. Definitely recommend it for your stay.
