Good place to stay; the staff were really nice, the hotel was clean. Only downside is the walls are a touch thin and I could hear the people next door to me talking WAY into the morning. To be fair to them they were talking pretty softly but the walls aren't great at blocking it out. Also the aircon smelled... More

We stayed for one night only and we're pleased with our decision to choose this motel. Our reception was warm and friendly and the room was spotlessly clean. No complaints about the bed as we found it to be very comfortable. We would recommend this motel to anyone.

We stayed here for one night only on last minute notice. The rooms were very clean and the staff were exceptional , they couldn't do enough for us . The next day on checking out Dianne allowed us to use the pool all day because we had little children travelling with us and needed something to do during the day... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel, arriving with very little notice during a busy period. The room was clean and comfortable with great air con and a well-stocked mini-bar. The owners were friendly and helpful with every request. This is a great value for money stay.

I have stayed at the Dawson Motor Inn on two separate occasions now when I've been in Lismore for work and I will continue to stay there each time I'm in town. The motel manager, Stewart, is the loveliest man! He is friendly and helpful and goes the extra mile for the guests. On my first stay, I was too... More

We could tolerate this motor inn for the one night we stayed there but not if we had to stay longer. The room was small and dated. It was close to the road and noisy at times. On the plus side, the owner was very welcoming and friendly.

Booked at the last minute on our drive from Newcastle to QLD, the service was amazing. On booking we explained we were travelling with a toddler and so we were allocated a room with only a queen bed to ensure we had space for the cot. While the room was small and basic, it was very clean and well maintained.... More
