Close to the 3 Sisters & other attractions, this motel is in the ideal position. Granted it is an older style motel & the price reflects this. Our room was clean & warm & big enough for 3 people. Would stay there again.

We stayed here for the weekend and it was reasonable for the price we paid. The room was okay, the doona a bit dusty so didn't end up using it as I was sneezing non-stop with it on our bed. Aside from that, it was an okay place to stay for a night or two - besides you wouldn't want... More

Stayed here for three nights. Had to buy a heater as the air conditioning didn't work. Found dead insects on the window ledges, torn curtains (was assured these were going to be replaced) and stains on the bedspreads, which were also torn. The bathroom needed a good clean, there were hairs on the floor and mould in the corners. The... More

We chose this inn partly due to availability, but also for proximity to Echo Point - I wanted to easily pop over at night to see stars. It was comfortable enough for a weekend trip, they could accommodate late arrivals, good amenities for its class, hot water. So, no complaints.

We stayed here for two nights and was surprised at how comfortable the beds are! And the shower was awesome, and the towels nice and thick. Also within walking distance to Three Sisters. Will stay here again

older & dated but proximity to three sisters is great. Room had everything we needed which suited us for the one night (road trip holiday) but not sure if I'd have been so keen if staying for a few days. Beautiful location

Stayed at the Echo Motor Inn in Katoomba, NSW Blue Mountains yesterday and can recommend for the budget minded. Two minutes from the Three Sisters tourist location and minutes from all the other sites in the area. We had forgotten how nice this area is. The motel is perfectly adequate without being anything more than it pretends. In the older... More

We booked (and PAID) online for a premium room but when we arrived we were told there'd been a "mix up" and we ended up with a standard room, half the size and no view. The website has a lot of stuff about how they are modernising the rooms, but they are still run down. I had the impression they... More

The Motel is located very conviniently near the famous Three Sisters in Katoomba. You can take some very nice walks, starting at the Motel. It is also about 1km away from most restaurants and shops, so you can walk there if you don't have a car. The Motel has deals with some restaurants in town, where you get 10% off.... More
