Reviewed August 14, 2012

This is a return visit to the motor inn. Again we found the room clean and everything you would expect for a motor inn. As always the rooms are well insulated so even with a 0 degree morning the room felt warm without turning the reverse cycle on at any stage in the visit. The fact that it is close to town, on the main hwy and yet still so quiet means this place with remain a fav of ours.

The motel was very clean, but the towels were thread bare and miniscule with one soap, face washer & no hand towels. Since there was no extra blankets we had to keep the heater on, but it cut out about 3a.m so hence we froze.
The only highlight was Alex (the receptionist come waitress) excellent service with a smile.

when there are so many other motels along Cobra St, you would wonder why this one would want to disappoint? Maintenance is not one of their strong points. For one - the tea/coffee making area was in a tight, little, dark passageway, where the lighting didn't work, so you couldn't see anything and the fridge was an old clunker. There was still a broken aircon remote control holder stuck to wall from an earlier model. The curtains were not effective in shutting out the bright porch lights, so the room was quite bright at night. the furnishings were old and tired, well overdue for replacement and the queen bed was in average condition. Car parking was too tight and out in the open. Lastly, but most importantly, the cleanliness lacked. For the rate they charged, I think they could do a lot better than this, especially when it felt so impersonal.

The nicest thing I can say about this place was that it was clean. The bed felt as if an elephant had slept in it previously - great big dents in it that made sleeping uncomfortable. The room was small, really only a place to crash. There were not many blankets so no choice but to sleep with the heat blasting all night long. The wifi sometimes worked, but by the second night it juts up and died and never came back up.

The strangest thing was breakfast. Really generous portions of bacon and eggs were on offer - and they were very tasty. But they ran out of coffee during breakfast on day 1, and it had not been replaced by breakfast again the next morning. We actually had to go out and buy coffee somewhere else.

We had dinner in the restaurant one night, and the girl serving was very good, and the meals very country-style - large, wholesome and tasty.

Room Tip: The rooms are not large enough for more than 2 people.

We recently stayed in an upstairs family room on a short visit to Dubbo. While this motel isn't a flash four star joint- it is great for a cheaper option. The room was clean and spacious. It had a convenient kettle, fridge and toaster. The beds were comfortable and the room air conditioned. The bathroom is basic, with a small shower/bath.
The motel is also pretty close to the shops and restaurants, there are countless fast food eateries very close.
The staff are quite friendly. We had a minor problem with the room when we arrived, but this was quickly and pleasantly rectified.
We had dinner in the motel restaurant one night, and while the food was actually really nice, we waited an hour from ordering to actually eating. This isn't much fun with hungry kids. Apparently it was because of a lot of room service orders, but maybe it'd make more sense to serve the restaurant customers quicker than the people relaxing in their rooms?
That aside I'd recommend this motel, and would stay again if ever back in Dubbo.

Stayed one night in a four star room, which inc continental breakfast. The room was very nice, well decorated and appointed (microwave). The room was relatively quiet, the bed was great and the shower was fantastic. The downsides of our room were; the small, thin towels and an only adequate air conditioner/heater. The staff were all friendly and attentive. We ate dinner at the restaurant which was very nice and reasonably priced. The continental breakfast was all anyone would want, with a choice of bakery breads, spreads and cereals. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate were available too. The location is good on the highway to Wellington (Sydney). We would happily stay here again.

Nothing too flash. The rooms are clean and spacious. Just another motel though. Bathroom a little dated but getting picky now. The entrance and dining area has been modernised. We had the bacon and eggs breakfast which is just as well as the continental breakfast very very basic. Reception was pretty poor. Virtually got handed our key and that was it. Same on check out. No attempt at discussion. So overall, it was okay, but I am wouldn't rate it too highly.
