The location is very easy to find. This is the very first motel as you enter town from north (driving south bound).
The buildings are very old. Light switches from 20+ years ago. Ceiling fan. Radiation heater on wall.
There is no air conditioning, so I do not know what would guests do in long hot summer.
No exhaust fan in bathroom, but a big window high on wall.
TV is analogue. No digital TV, no Austar (satellite TV for rural Australia).
Bathroom is on highway side of room, and sleeping is on the other direction. Rooms are quite close to highway, so you will hear semi trailers doing overnight trips, althouugh the gap of having a bathroom between highway & sleeping side of the room may help a little. Some people may not notice the noise, but some will.
Cleaning was OK, although there was dust / dirt on the floor between bed & wall / furniture.
Bed is clean, comfortable.
Size of room is comparable to other motels in country Australia.
Owner was helpful. I did not specify bed configuration when booking, and owner was happy to provide different room with different bed configuration upon arrival.
Comparing against all motels I have stayed in country towns in Australia, I would be happy to sleep here for under $120, but that would be the max, unless I have no other choices.
