“By far best motel in Young”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

This is my second time in Young and this motel is by the far the best motel I've stayed in. Sydney is nowhere as cold as Young and electric blankets are always a huge bonus to sleep quality in addition to the quiet modern air-conditioner (unlike the older ones in many country towns that powers up like a generator).

Features I loved most about this motel; coziness of the room, heat lights in the bathroom, electric blankets, and cleanliness (to the extent that I remove my shoes as I step into the room because it was so clean).

A minor downside to it was the size of the TV. In saying that, I'm assuming Executive Suites are more spacious in terms of room size and hence the TV seems small. 32" is not tiny, just the distance between the bed and the TV that makes it seem small. I'm not a huge TV fan so it didn't really bother me.

For a decent meal, walk across the road to the club.

The room was so luxurious that I literally do not want to step out of the room when it came to check-out time.

Room Tip: The Federation motel is always booked out. Book in advance.

The Federation Motel in Young is the most centrally located - just off the main drag. It is run by the Services Club on the other side of the road so there are advantages when it comes to meals - you can even get full room service if you like. The rooms are spacious and well-cleaned. The bathroom is actually big enough for two people. I have stayed in some daggy places in Young before- don't know why I didn't shell out the extra twenty bucks for the Federation .

Room Tip: They are all pretty standard and away from the road.

We decided to do a country drive around Easter. As part of this adventure we stayed at the Federation Motor Inn in Young. This is a great motel and close to town. It is also opposite the town's RSL club which is very handy for meals and a quiet evening drink. Young is a pretty and very tidy town and well worth the visit. The Motel was very comfortable, with larger than normal rooms and a great bed. Well worth the trip.

Room Tip: All rooms are ground floor. Parking outside the door.

I recently stayed at Federation Motor Inn Young for one night while on business in the area. The motel is well located being away from the highway and passing trucks but only a short walk to the main street containing shops, pubs and restaurants. The Services Club is located directly opposite where you can have a reasonably priced meal and drink and charge back to your room account. The motel is quite modern and provides all ground floor rooms with open parking outside and a swimming pool. The rooms are very spacious with a lounge area containing couch, small table and 2 chairs, flat screen TV, bench with sink above bar fridge and a decent size wardrobe. The bathroom is large, modern and clean with a separate bath and shower. The room is air conditioned and features WIFI which is included in your room rate. The room rates are not cheap but considering the good standard of accommodation I believe it is worth it. I will stay here again and highly recommend the motel to others.

We recently had to travel to Young for a conference and once again had the pleasure to stay at the Federation Motor Inn.
This motel is located directly opposite the Services Club and is within an easy walk of the main street.
The rooms are generally large with good sized and modern bathrooms, good aircon & flat screen TV. A pool and BBQ area are available if you have time.
An excellent value for money motel that will ensure a quiet nights sleep away from the highway and with walk of everything

Room Tip: Corner rooms are generally larger

With work i travel all around the world come to Young for a family wedding. This was far the best motel i have ever stayed the management went that extra mile, breakfast was great with free range eggs. This is a must stay motel, in a quiet location with spacious rooms.If there are any complaints about this motel I'm sure that that person would not be happy with any thing.

Stayed here January 2013. A great motel especially if you are staying a few days. Lovely large rooms and my room had a bench and sink with tea/coffee making facilities and bar fridge. Pool was extremely well maintained. Would definitely stay again.
