“Noisy rooms, stuck in the 1960's and expensive for what it is”
Reviewed March 15, 2010

We stayed at the Nowra Motor Inn in February 2010 as we were heading to Jervis Bay at the last minute and it was the only accomodation left nearby. The sheets were dirty, we could clearly hear every word uttered in the surrounding rooms and yes, it's a motor inn in a small town but is really expensive for a place that clearly hasn't been renovated since the 1960's. The positive? The staff were friendly and courteous. Otherwise, try to avoid this one.

Reviewed November 21, 2009

Firstly they gave us a room key & once we dragged all our stuff up there (stairs only) i opened the door to find an unmade bed & peoples belongings in the room.
I went back downstairs - they did their best i guess, but it took a long time, they had no idea what happened, how, who or anything!!
Eventually we were given another key & that room was fine.
They are small rooms, crapp little bathrooms & the whole place needs updating, cleaning, painting - ahhh i could go on.
Yes its cheap, $75 a night - but i'd still go elsewhere!!!

Don't waste your time
