“Nowra Motor Inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Nowra Motor Inn for a weekend. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable and talking to the owners who were very friendly and full of local information for restaurants and things to do, we found out that they had just recently taken over the Management of the Motel. We could see that improvements were happening and we would differently go back and recommend our friends to stay at Nowra Motor Inn.

Room Tip: we had a room up one level up which gave us plenty of air circulation during the day (when home) and...

Booked 2 rooms at this motel for 1 night with family. All other accommodation was booked out as we only decided the day before. Checking in/out was straightforward, good location and plenty of parking space. The rooms were old and not very clean, and the one of the rooms had a very bad smell that we couldn't eliminate. The rooms definitely needed better ventilation. Beds were alright, bathroom also old and rusty. Very quiet for a motel. Overall a budget no-frills hotel for those who are just stopping off for a night's sleep.

Room Tip: Choose an inner room on the upper level - quiet and better ventilation.

Stayed here when visiting family in Nowra and it made sleeping in the car look like a good option.

Bed was lumpy, creaked and smelled. Sheets were itchy and not cleaned well (there were pubic hairs in the bed)

My husband went to iron his shirt only to find you have to pay to use ironing facilities!!!

Bathroom was not clean. Mould and peeling paint everywhere.

Avoid this place like the plague.

We spent one night here and were definitely not sorry to leave. Our friends had spent the night before here and they had to change rooms because the beds were so awful that they spent the night on the floor. They checked out our room for us, to make sure the beds were okay, but when we got there, someone else was already in our room. It took ages to get the manager to understand this. When we finally got it sorted out, we got moved into the biggest room. The best part about it was the space. Paint was peeling off the roof and the fans creaked. There were holes in the bedspreads, blankets and couch . One of the cupboard doors was screwed shut and the cold water came out hot. The only positive, if you could call it that, was that it appeared clean. Very shabby, I don't think it has been maintained for a long time. Definitely a job for a bulldozer...

Room Tip: Go to a different Motel.... If you have to stay, insist on inspecting the rooms first.

Have stayed here twice and it was better the second time because the room had digital TV. The rooms are basic. The shops are down the road and it was free parking. Overall my stay was good.

Negatives:
Rooms are old style
Furnishings could do with replacing
Could have done better with cleaning

Not the best, but was preparing for the worst as we got it really cheap
The positives:
We got a good price
Good location
Private
Had the pool to ourselves

Stayed for 2 weeks, this was the cheapest we could find and had free parking. Didnt go for luxury because we went out everyday and just needed a place to stay. It was pretty close to everything. Rooms are a bit old fashioned but had evrything we needed. Just a typical 3 star really...
