Bundaberg Spanish Motor Inn

Reviewed March 15, 2012

Stayed in one of the rooms that have been updated.
The new bathrooms are lovely and clean.

Our room was comfortable, with a two seater lounge, small table and chairs, flat screen TV (with many channels), and tea and coffee facilities, with a small table and chair outside if you want some fresh air.

We had time for a dip in the pool, which was drenched in bright Queensland sun and helped us to relax after our big trip.

The managers, Wendy and Russ are very welcoming and most helpful with information or requests.

And yes, as others have pointed out, our car windscreen had been cleaned overnight and it is these small things that really demonstrate what care these managers put into looking after guests. Makes you want to come back again.

Bundaberg reminded us of a small NZ West Coast town, so we weren't expecting top of the range accommodation. However, the Spanish Motor Inn is in need of an update. The rooms are very dark (the light was needed on anytime of the day or night that we were in the kitchen area) and the paint work very old. The motel advertises free internet, but the lady in the reception said it was not working properly and did not know how to access it when we asked for instructions. Smoking is allowed directly outside the rooms, so you need to keep your door shut or you will get the smelly backwash of your neighbours puffing. It was a pleasant enough place to stay for one night, the hostess was friendly, but some lighter paint on the walls and some modern bed coverings would make all the difference.

I stayed here during a trip around Australia and can quite honestly say that it was the best motel experience I've had throughout the whole trip.
The motel is ideally situated off the main highway so it's nice and quiet, but it's also very close to Bundy's main street, eateries and attractions. The rooms were immaculately clean. They were basic but contained everything you need, even shampoo, conditioner and shower gel dispensers. It was also one of the cheapest motels I had come across ($100 for a night) which I though was fantastic value given some of the other places I've stayed in.
It's the little things that count; the cheery and friendly owners who just want to make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable, the assistance with directions on the best roads to take to get there, the yummy breakfast that arrived right on time, the clean windscreen in the morning.
I would definitely recommend the Spanish Motor Inn to anyone traveling to Bundaberg who appreciates wonderful customer service. I was sad to leave and will definitely be back!

A good clean room where everything worked and the bed was super comfortable and the included continental breakfast was great to have. To top it all our windscreen was cleaned for us as a parting courtesy. A top friendly place to stay.

Hi Bruce R.,

Thankyou so much for your Trip Advisor !!!

It really does mean a lot to us both personally and professionally to receive positive feedback.

The pleasure was ours and we hope to see you again at Bundy's quiet motel, The Bundaberg Spanish Motor Inn.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I thought we best give this place a try. I see now why most people are very happy when staying at the Spanish Motor Inn. While it may be one of the older places, the bed we had was wonderful (much better than the 4 star place we stayed a few weeks earlier) , great towels and very welcoming staff. The room was clean and tidy, although dated, but had everything we needed.

The big selling point for this place is that it is a ‘quiet place to stay’. We spent two nights here and we will agree with that statement.

I guess, some people do a job because they have to, the people at this place do a job because they like too. An oldie, but a goodie!

The hosts Russ and Wendy couldn't do any more for us and made us feel right at home but also unmanaged at the same time.

Lovely old fashioned service, confirmed my belief that Qld folk are so much nicer then anywhere else.

I have stayed in a lot of 3 and 4 star places that were not as clean and well kept as this accommodation. Shower pressure was perfect and room was very fresh and clean. loved the little choccie.

Can't wait to come back and visit.

Room Tip: it's well laid out so rooms are all positioned to support privacy and easy access.

We will definately be back. We were taken back by the friendly couple who run the motel Russ and Wendy. They could not have been more helpful with our stay. The breakfast kept us full all day. Our room was clean when we arrived and kept clean whilst we stayed there. Wish there were more motel proprietor's like them. Our windscreen was even cleaned for us each morning! Thank-you
