“not again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2010

old noisy air conditions and sofa beds. Far from the best motel we have stayed in. needs updating. Freindly service is a positive but not very comfortable rooms. Located next to highway with noisy trucks. Best thing about motel was the service and worst thing was a tie between the bed and the air conditioner.

Peter G, Owner at Dawson Motor Inn, responded to this review, September 23, 2011
I think that the reviewer has confused us with another Motel on Dawson St.

All of our rooms are freshly painted, new carpets, new curtains & bedspreads, most rooms with new air-cons and all beds are firm, we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the rooms and the quiet location.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2009

I was tour leader of a group of 30 who stayed 3 days in Lismore. Our decision to stay at Dawson Motor Inn proved wise. Peter Gerstenberg and Garry Jones were terrific hosts, very welcoming and ensured our stay was comfortable and enjoyable.
We made a decision at late notice to have all 30 breakfasts at Dawson Motor Inn instead of elsewhere which again proved to be the right decision. Peter and Garry set about providing 30 breakfasts at no fuss, on time, delicious, high on quality and quantity. Made our start to each day a postive one.
We also left behind luggage by mistake, the guys acted swiftly to ensure we retrieved the items before we caught our next flight out of Coolangatta.
I would recommend Dawson Motor Inn to anyone wanting a good, comfortable and relaxing stay in Lismore.
