We needed somewhere to stay while heading south. Booked through Booking.com an hour before we arrived. All worked well. The motel doesn't look like much from the outside but the room was bright and clean. The room and bathroom have been fully renovated with a modern look. The a/c was a bit noisy and being right on the highway there...

Through desperation we stayed a restless night at the Hi-Way. Noisy traffic and neighbours disturbed our sleep, however we made sure the room was securely locked and a butter knife was kept by our bed. On the positive, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would I stay there again....no!

Very small but adequate room. Extremely clean, bathroom recently retiled, loads of hot water and plenty of power points. Some road noise from the semis that rumble past the motel the highway but not enough to keep us awake. Full house so must be doing something right. Pleasant couple in reception.

I was a drop in, just got tired driving and this was the first place I saw. It's kind of old fashioned but it seems very clean, the lady at the desk was really friendly and helped me out with finding dinner. I'm moving on in the morning, I think I might need something a bit bigger if I was...

I stayed here overnight by booking through Wotif.com. From the outside it definitely hasn't emerged from the 60s, but the room I stayed in was comfortable enough. Facilities were fairly basic, and it's a bit noisy due to the main road traffic, but surprisingly enough I slept very well. The only issue I had was that the room when I...

After reading some other reviews we braced for the worst, but we had a pleasant stay here. Yes it's by the highway and loud but some ear plugs solved that. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the manager friendly. While not my first choice to come back to would stay again.

Worst motel we have ever stayed at. Trucks thundering along Pacific Highway all night and goods train rolling by at the rear. You are sandwiched between the two. No sleep at all. Woke up exhausted. This motel in no-where near the city of Grafton. In fact it isn't near anything. Stay there at your own peril! This really is budget...

Management was very rude. Very nosey. Asked questions that was none of their businesses. I was quite shocked as to their attitude. Room musty and mouldy. Highway noise. No cupboard. Everything was very old. Bed very uncomfortable.

We had luck to get a last motel room in area of 500 km around Gold Coast between Christmas and New Year, so let's don't mention the price (101 AUD/ night) - we would pay much more to avoid the option of sleeping in a car... Well, honestly, no one pretends to get a very comfortable stay in a motel...
