2nd time we've stayed here. Stayed here for one night on our way driving from Sydney to Cairns. Meticulously clean, well maintained and great attention to detail. Nice touch at reception was a bucket and squeegee so you can clean your car's windscreen after a long drive ! Highly Recommended.

Love the title of your review, thank you very much. Thanks also for the feedback on our 'De-bugger tool'. I saw this once on my own travels and thought what a great idea, especially out west where many travellers do + 1000kms per day. Safe travels... More

Ian and Donna could not have been more accomodating or pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble. They are genuinely interested in their guests and their needs. It is handy to the centre of town, with most locations of interest and the main business centre being well within walking distance. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. I will not hesitate...

Stayed just one night. Even though the motel is on the highway the room was very quiet. We did find the layout a little odd with the sink located in the kitchenette area adjacent to the bedroom and outside the bathroom (that included the shower and toilet). Regardless of this oddity we did find the room to be very clean... More

decoration was quite Tizzy, older clientele would have appreciated but not for all clean rooms. Cost wise fairly Standard for Roma which has been effected by the resources boom. It is close to the highway, the rooms were quite.

Stayed at the Starlight Motor Inn overnight and the room was modern, clean and comfortable and surprisingly very little road noise from passing traffic although located on main road. The host was friendly suggesting places to eat as well as the motels options. Would recommend the Starlight Motor Inn for an overnight stay if in Roma.

Clean and tidy rooms in a central location. Owner/manager suggested where could eat in town and then mentioned their home cooked menu. Most reasonably priced and delivered to room as they don't have dining room. Friendly personal service. Would stay again.

Extremely friendly staff, who were very helpful and supportive. Nice, clean and tidy rooms. Although this motel is on the highway, it was not noisy - and I am a light sleeper. Located close to all facilities, although I had a car, I could walk to everything I needed. I had a delightful stay and will stay again.

Lovely motel to stay at. Had the family room, only 2 of us. Spa bath was great to watch, bit noisy so just soaked. Very roomy room. Dinner and breakfast was delicious. Loved the containers with bath products in them. Staff friendly.

We are very glad you enjoyed the meals and thank you for highlighting our spacious rooms and the toiletries dispensers we provide. We have received positive feedback on the hand soap, shaving crème & moisturiser at the hand basin & shampoo, conditioner & shower gel within the shower cubicle. I'm glad you noticed all the small things, much appreciated... More

I travel through Roma regularly and I was pleased I chose the Starlight Motel for this stop over. My dog was most welcome and Donna's hospitality was great. The room was very comfortable and clean. Will definitely stay again.

After seeing your beautiful dog Zoe, we were very happy for you to have a corner room, with Zoe tucked away outside your unit. You are both certainly welcome again - thanks... Safe travels. More
