Bed was very comfortable. The room was clean. It was nice to have a recently renovated bathroom. Reception and cleaning staff very friendly. Lovely quiet location, yet central to the sights of katoomba.

Very warm welcome at the check in and took time to explain some things about blue mountains and motel. As we did not have a car it was only a 20 minute walk to centre like promised. Room clean bathroom clean but could use upgrade.nice swimming pool and BBQ area free of charge. Great breakfast. Very nice place to stay... More

One evening late November 2014. Very clean and smelled freshly cleaned. A little dated interior, but it is a motel. Excellent dining advice in town given by owner. Overall Good value for money given inflated prices in Katoomba.

This was exactly what I expected after reading the other Tripadvisor reviews for a road stop motel. stayed one night at the Sky Rider Inn mid November, it was a last minute booking as I had booked somewhere else but noticed the location and wanted somewhere away from the noise of the traffic that you can get on the Hwy...

I booked a family suite and queen room for our trip at Blue mountains. The location of the inn was not at the central of Katoomba so it would be more convenient if you drive. There are great food at Katoomba and Leura village nearby (around 5-10 minutes drive). The check in at reception was quick and we were given... More

This motel is not your "top notch" motel but if you are after a lovely clean and comfortable motel with very friendly service and Superb HOME COOKED meals......this is the motel for you. Lovely setting and close enough to walk to shops or just to go for a stroll..Highly recommend.

Stayed for one night with my teenage son in a twin room. Undoubtedly an outstanding motor inn, unlike any other I have seen in the region (or even elsewhere). Good location, right at the motorway and still amazingly silent. Comfortable, tastily decorated, well equipped rooms with small fridge, flat screen TV, one queen and one single bed, excellent shower and... More

W took our relatives from England to see the Blue Mountains and searched for suitable accommodation in /near Katoomba and found the Sky Rider Motor Inn. We arrived early, but every effort was made to make available one room in which to store our luggage. Check-in was pleasant, fast and efficient. On our return from visiting Scenic World, 3 Sisters...

As of this writing, Trip Advisor rates this hotel first of 16 in Katoomba, and four stars. This indicates that reviewers are rating based on value rather than quality, because this hotel is at best average, and it is certainly not "very good", which is what 4 stars means. I really think that Trip Advisor should have two separate ratings,... More

Fine for a quick getaway and seems to be on a par in regards to other accomodation in this price range ($160 family room). It is clean, if not dated, but again not dissimiliar from any other motels in this category. If you are a non smoker the smell of smoke from people smoking outside the other rooms can be... More
