We stayed at the Garden City Motel in Toowoomba once previously and were not disappointed with our stay there this time either. Even though it is on a main road,the motel is still very quite. It was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Overall a great and fantastic place to stay.

Excellent little motel,very clean and comfortable bed. Good value for what it is a small well managed motel offering good value for money. No nightclubs and little street noise despite being situated on the highway, ideal for travellers.

This motel featured rooms that open onto a garden setting. The hosts were very nice, and the rooms were quite comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing in the garden after our day long drive. The motel was located on a quiet street and easy to get back on the highway the next day.

I have booked 2 bedroom apartment for 1 night after looking at the photos on the website. When we checked in I was told that they were situated at different property. So after I got the key we had to drive out onto the busy road and turn right. When we pulled up I nearly had a massive panic attack.... More

We arrived at the Garden City Motor Inn in Toowoomba to stay to enjoy a night with our kids who lived just around the corner. The owner asked us if we wanted an upgrade in one of their units that they were refurbishing around the corner (even nearer to our kids). Obviously we said yes and what a wonderful upgrade... More

We often stay here for a weekend stopover in Toowoomba. The motel is in a good position being close to all Toowoomba's main shopping spots. It is also only a short walk away from the local Club where one can get a selection of meals. The rooms are in excellent condition and one could not ask for more....they have everything... More

The Garden City is one of your older-style variety of motel. It probably could be said it has seen better days. So, for starters, it is competitively priced (though it must also be said competition between motels in Toowoomba can be intense). My room was clean and of more or less a standard size and amenity, with comfy queen-size bed,... More

My time at this hotel was great, friendly staff unlike other hotels which were usually very rude and unapproachable, excellent customer service were positive attributes. Very spotless, clean rooms. Barbeque area and smoking area were a plus. Price of the rooms were very reasonable and swimming pool area was a nice addition to my stay. Gardens were nicely trimmed and... More

We stayed at this motel for one night in February, 2015. The room was adequate but was a little cramped with the extra unused single bed. The car park was steep and a bit limited. There was reasonable free WIFI reception available. The accommodation was suitable for our short stopover but the traffic noise was very loud and the location... More

Stayed 2 nights while in Toowoomba on business. Depressing and noisy. I must have been the only non-smoker, all other guests sitting outside rooms puffing away. Disgusting. Smelly. No room service. On main highway, so very noisy. Pool very unappealing, situated at the front facing the busy road. Poor WiFi, slow and limited. And wasn't cheap.
