“Large clean and tidy room”
Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed the size of this room. A bit old style, but comfy, roomy, clean and tidy. Nice brekky. So loved the porridge! The managers of this motel are delightful! So friendly- very suited to their jobs. That's what you want as a traveler - a happy face to say hello & goodbye. Nice big TV. Basically everything for a comfy night on the road. Ahhh..

Stayed July 2012, traveled with family

This property offers at best 3.5 star motor inn style accommodation where you park directly outside your front door. The rooms are clean and the property serves its purpose. It's quiet at a night and offers a reasonably good location, about a 10-15 minute walk into town. They have free Foxtel and the bathrooms are surprising decent.
Staff are friendly and if you get a room at a reasonable price $89-$119 depending on time of year, you shouldn't have too many complaints.
Overall not a bad place to rest and recover after a long drive

Myself and a colleague were in Bundaberg for business and stayed at the Best Western Bundaberg City Motor Inn (note there are TWO Best Westerns In Bundaberg) for one night.
Glenda was very welcoming on arrival, and we were checked in quickly and efficiently. We were asked if we had dinner plans, as I believe the motel has charge back arrangements with a number of restaurants, but we had made plans (see my other Bundaberg review for a great recommendation).
The rooms were clean and spacious, with a bathroom with a large shower, a flat screen TV, a fridge, Coffee/Tea making equipment, a chair and small table and a desk space beneath a little door through which your breakfast tray arrives.
Breakfast can be ordered the night before to be delivered in a number of 15 minute timeslots, with a number of items available for order, both hot and cold. My own personal choices arrived spot on my selected time and were exactly as ordered.
The TV has the digital free to air channels, plus a small selection of pay TV channels.
My only critical comment is that the room I was in (17), was at the road end of the row of rooms, and I found that the traffic noise, while quiet overnight, was quiet noticeable in the evening and early morning. But the bed was comfy, which helped me sleep!

Checking out was also painless, and there was no problem with the storage of our bags until we left later in the day.

This is a pleasant and friendly place to stay within easy reach of many of the places and facilities you may wish to access in Bundaberg.

Room Tip: Rooms 17 and 18 are the road end of the units and can suffer from road noise at peak times.

Fantastic place to stay. Could not fault a single thing here. By far the cleanest bathrooms we've seen for basic accommodation, and even better than many higher end hotels we've stayed in! It's not a fancy hotel or anything, but for a place to come in, relax, regroup, and sleep it's great.

The rooms are nice, clean, enough space to stay for the weekend, comfortable beds. The owners are very helpful. We took the breakfast option and very glad we did - we were quickly ready to get on with the day.

We came for the turtles and didn't know that Bundaberg rum was having a special release event on the Sunday - the only downside for the weekend was that the massive truck belonging to our neighbours was running (incredibly loudly) at 5 in the morning when they were going to line up for the event. From my understanding the events don't happen that often so shouldn't be anything to worry about.

Very clean and modern, its been totally refurbished I don't how long ago I didn't ask. Stayed here on two occasions now. No restaurant however heaps of places to eat within a few minutes and meals can be ordered and delivered and charged to your room. Could not fault it really the owners were very helpful around where to go and knew a few fishing spots if you are into fishing.
Table and chairs outside room to enjoy the evening breeze.
The rum factory tour is quite interesting just dont taste the molasses. Mon Repos beach is only a short drive however the turtle watching is seasonal. The Club Hotel the other end of town is good value for a meal however Wednesdays is cheap steak night and you need to be there by six.
Would definitely stay here again if I was to travel to Bundaberg.

We had to stop at several motels on our drive from Brisbane to Cairns and most of the time, we would go for Best Western motels. This one in Bundaberg was actually not that bad. Very simple of course but the owner was so friendly that it made the stay nicer. Breakfast was included. Nothing too fancy but they bring it to your room through some small doors that only they can open from outside... they slide it in and come back to pick it up a while later. What I found annoying in Australian hotels though is that check out time is always around 10am... A bit early...

Good morning and thank you for posting your reveiw on trip advisor We believe that it is not hard to be nice to people and by doing so makes them feel at home. All reviews we receive are much appreciated as it helps us to improve our business. As far as I know the 10am checkout time has always been that way........it is just a room turnaround thing and in a smaller property like ours is a must. We, and I am sure other property's do as well, will provide a later checkout if required by advising our cleaning staff to do that room last. Usually that gives you a bit extra time to checkout at no charge. Just ask to see if that option is available.As I said we are usually able to accommdate that request if asked. Thank you again for posting your reveiw and we trust you enjoyed your stay in Bundaberg.
