Arrived at 10pm on a Friday night, reception was closed but the owners are always on site. They came down and opened the office, felt so welcomed the moment we walked in, they were lovely. We were checked in super fast and opened the door to such a spacious room... the building is very old and tired BUT everything was... More

Now the Econolodge - we had a great overnighter here this weekend. Although it's an old motel it's been updated with modern bedding, curtains, a fresh lick of paint & wall mounted flat screen tv. There's even an offer for a fresh coffee at reception to be delivered to our room. They've managed to retain the old wood cladding in... More

Without advance booking, the friendly and efficient managers quickly completed paperwork and I offered a viewing before taking the room. Room was perfect for my needs and had an amazing view of Mt Warning. Cleanliness was excellent, and although this is clearly an older building, the fittings were modern and well maintained. Staff were really welcoming an offered excellent advice... More

This handy motel has seen better days but is very comfortible, spotlessly clean and offers great service. It is well situated with excellent views of Mount Warning. We both felt that it was good value for money.

This is very quite location in town and our room had a wonderful view of Mt Warning. The reception staff were very friendly and the rooms very clean. Wifi was very quick and all facilities in our room were of a standard that you would expect in this price range. We would definitely stay here again when in Murwillumbah. Jeff... More

The motel has just joined the Choice Hotels Franchise. The location is quiet and convenient. Walking distance from the towns restaurants. We recommend the little Vietnamese / Thai restaurant. BYO only. The managers are friendly and welcoming. Free WIFI and some excellent coffee from their coffee machine in the reception area. That's a nice touch!

This place was exactly what we'd expected of a motor inn - it was clean, quiet, convenient with really friendly staff. The value for money is great and it was the ideal spot to stay for a weekend in the area.

Murwillumbah is lacking in the higher classes of Hotel/Motel Accommodation. Something they need to have a good look at now that the new Margaret Olley Art Centre at the Tweed River Art Gallery has opened. But if you have to pick a 3 1/2 star Motel, the Murwillumbah Motor Inn is a worthy pick. Our twin Mt Warning room was... More
