“Best Family Motel I have stayed in.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2011

After travelling for several hours we arrived in Dubbo and a friend recommended we stay at the Tallarook Motor Inn as the motel was slanted towards family accommodation.
On arrival we were greeted by the owners who were friendly and made us feel very welcome.

We were given a two room unit that was clean and spacious and very suitable for our requirements. A fully equipped kitchenette was an added bonus. Perfectly located close to the Western Plains Zoo, Parks and Town Center. Sooooo comfortable we decided to extend our stay to 3 nights.
We will stay again and recommend this motel to all our friends.

I found Tallarook Motor Inn a nice place too stay until i noticed Blood Spatter all over walls near beds, i only took notice on my 3rd day there, you could see the attempts made to clean it from the bleech staining on the walls. I photographed all the evidence but staff did not seem helpfull or offer anorher room. I can not find any info of incidents there but to all of you reading this avoid ROOM 10 at all costs.

We stayed here in a family room. The room was VERY basic. It was clean but the room did have a strong disinfectant smell. The place was pretty worn out; sheets, T.V, decor, but reasonable rates and the staff were nice. The breakfast was good value also. Unfortunately we stayed next to a very large and loud family. I could hear snoring through the wall!! They were up at the break of day with a crying baby and loud yelling at the kids and banging. They revved up the old V8 commodore at about 8.30am and were gone. Other than that there wasn't much traffic noise and location is quite good, opposite Hungry Jack's and just a short drive to the CBD.

Tallar, Owner at Tallarook Motor Inn, responded to this review, March 6, 2010
The sheets are always 100% fresh linen. The rooms themselves aren't basic at all. The rooms consist of large living quarters full kitchen and bathroom facilities. Yet again another fallacy of a review. Which in-turn can harm my business due to false reviews from tenants.

The rooms were large and clean but the smell of the air freshener was very strong and irritatingly overpowering. The location was OK and the service was Ok but I would not go there again. The price was good.
