Motor inn is just off the Highway which is convenient. Location wise it's residential & next to a mechanic but everything is a 5 min drive away. This includes the town centre & Scenic World. The rooms are clean & although basic it provided what we needed for an overnight pit stop in the beautiful Blue Mountains. The complimentary biscuits,... More

My first motel experience in years. This was a decent, clean establishment with a nice-sized family room (1 double, 3 single beds) that served us well, with a fridge, kettle, toaster and other small basics provided. The property is surprisingly tucked away and attractive, notwithstanding its location close to the highway beside a ramshackle auto-repair shop. Wifi was spotty with... More

We are at the start of the tourist drive and just out of the town centre... our WIFI is free and unlimited you can get as many access cards as required but we find the limit is sufficient. Thank you for taking the time to review us and we hope you may stay again. More

Great little motel, so clean, revamped, renovated bathroom, clean white linen (no grubby old bedspreads), comfy bed, lovely swimming pool, nice location only 2 minute drive to town centre. There's no reason to stay anywhere else. I really love this place (can you tell? ) !

A simple, pretty standard design motel that is very well run. Our room was spotless, obviously recently renovated and very comfortable. Its about a 12-15 minute stroll into town. Great value, good location, very clean, friendly.

the room was very clean and had basic amenities. It is excellent value for money and the people who had recently taken it over were in the middle of renovating the restaurant and were very friendly and happy to assist and share their knowledge.

Room was very clean. Basic but just what we needed. Good size bathroom looked like it was recently renovated. Good sized double bed. Very friendly staff, they gave us a run down of the near by area included best site seeing and places to go for eating. Would defiantly stay again.

We stayed here based on the reviews we saw. Maybe because our last spot was the Four Seasons in Sydney, we were just not so happy with this place. They were helpful when in October we had to change our timing on our dates there - they switched us easily. But on arrival it was right on the highway. It's... More

I stayed here for my birthday in November with my family after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor. I booked 3 superior queen rooms at this hotel through booking.com in advance. This was very convenient as I did not need to pay anything until we arrived. I will definitely stay at the Sky Rider Motor Inn again next time... More
