Route 66 Motor Inn is a large very modern well equipped rooms. Disappointed that there was o free Wi-Fi (not even for 1 hour)in the units-you had to go the restaurant to receive it. Very short walk to town centre, local shopping centre and the botanical gardens next to the railway line(only two trains a week come through). Good undercover... More

I have stayed here a few years ago and I have returned again based on that positive experience. There is traffic noise and you should ask for a room away from the railway line if you are a light sleeper as there are late night early morning diesel locomotive trains. Good size room and ensuite, although the toilet access is... More

Not sure how I have missed this one for so long. I am a regular visitor to Emerald and The Route 66 leaves the rest in the shade. Clean modern well appointed rooms, internet that actually works, delicious meals, close to town. And lets not forget the friendly welcome with,"If you need anything don't hesitate to ask". I'll be back... More

We stayed in an apartment with a well-equipped kitchen, two airconditioned bedrooms, bathroom, and a good sized lounge room. Having our own kitchen was great - while the motel has a nice restaurant, it was closed for Christmas at the time we visited, so being able to cook our own dinner was great. We had such a comfortable stay; the... More

This motel is great value for money. Room was clean and spacious as usual, this is the second time we have stayed here. I think last time I gave in 5 stars, just a couple of things this time disappointed us a tad. The air con did not cool the room down - even after closing the bathroom door the... More

The Route 66 Motor Inn offers clean, quite spacious, motel rooms with all necessary amenities. The bathroom is decently sized and also cleaned to high standards. However, we were told when we arrived that breakfast would be available "all morning" - this turned out to be until 8 am, so when we arrived at 8:20, no brekkie was to be... More

The rooms were well set out with both a separate working and eating tables a very decent kitchenette (with larger fridge). The modern split system air conditioning... More

We stayed here for one night and the room is nice and modern. All the space you could need and well located jut off the main roads. We had dinner at the restaurant that night and it was fantastic. Best pork belly I have had in a very long time! The only downside was the air conditioning. The unit is... More
