“Dog friendly accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

The service and friendly attitude made this a great place to stay with my dog. The room was very clean and Jan makes the best fruit salad I have ever eaten ! Dog friendly accommodation is rare and people being so helpful is rare as well. We were at a show in the heat and a friend & her dog were quite unwell. Jan allowed her to share my room & we were very grateful for the kindness showed.
Thank you very much!

We stayed here with 2 adults, 1 child and 2 small dogs. Rooms were clean and great value for money. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. There was free wireless internet an the pool was clean and inviting and away from prying eyes. A convenient place to stay in Toowoomba.

We stayed there with our pet and what a nice place. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The in room breakfast was really good and reasonably priced. Jane and Jeff are new to the Motel and are pleasure to deal with. We needed to go out for dinner one night and they offered to baby sit our dog which was a lovely touch. We will definitely be staying here again.

Stayed overnight here to visit the Carnival of flowers. A basic room, but with unexpected extras such as hand soap, body lotion, shaving cream, shampoo, conditioner and body wash all on tap.
Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds and a very friendly, helpful staff. Nothing flash, but great value for money.

stayed over for a week on buisness recently ,was more than a little supprised when I opened the door to my room......nothing like what is pictured on the website.
it was fairly tidy but was very disapointed with the room to the point if I hadn't paid up front I would have driven back to brisbane if no better accomodation was available in toowoomba

Room Tip: stay else where

Have stayed here three times in the last few months and is very good value for money. Not flash but the units are spacious and clean and are all you would want and the management are friendly and extremely helpful. Free internet a great bonus and undercover parking. We will definitely stay there again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

My family and I stayed at the Ruthven Street Motor Inn during the festival of flowers. I was the only availlable in Toowoomba at the time.. The owner were nice and explained that they had recently purchased the property and wer in the process of renovating. It was inexpensive, but it was clean. The owners were loveley.. If you have a family and are on a budjet I would reccomend that you give it a try.

Room Tip: Ask the owner if you are not sure, they are only to willing to help
