Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you're going to charge almost $300 per night you need to fix up the furnishings in the room. If you charge a luxury price please provide some luxury. The Bathroom was very narrow for almost $300 per night. The lounge was dirty and needs a clean too. There was rubbish outside our window which looks like it's been there a while in the long grass. The trucks going past our window were noisy too. In comparison on our Vacation we stayed in luxury (Sunshine Coast and Brisbane City) for almost half the price this Motel charged us. So don't price gouge or take advantage when accommodation is harder to come by.

Response from winston Li, Owner at Motel Kempsey
Responded 4 weeks ago
We do not offer any rooms priced at $300. Our pricing structure is fully transparent and accessible to the public. You can easily check and find the price online. We kindly ask you to identify yourself and your check-in date so that we can double-check what happened. In line with our commitment to honesty and integrity, we expect full transparency from all parties involved. This extends to customer reviews, where we value truthful and accurate feedback. It's essential to realize that if someone lies, people will easily figure it out because we focus on being real and taking responsibility.

We drove from Sydney to Brisbane and started to feel tired around Kempsey. We passed the motel and it looked fine. We called and spoke with Bev. We got a huge family room with kitchenette facilities. We had a wonderful nights sleep and we’re so pleased we found this place. Cannot recommend enough. And was a one minute drive into town for food.

Pretty good value booked thru Agoda for discount on this handy and very clean motel. Owners agreeable and friendly. Bathroom was spotless, bit old fashioned but water was hot enough. Comfy bed and doona was ok for overnight stay but noise Carrie’s through the interconnecting door from neighbours and whiny dogs through night. The latter advice don’t take rooms on the left side below the managers office. Would have 4 but 3 because of the noise!

Fantastic motel stay, very clean and well catered for. The Queen room had a bar fridge, microwave and decent TV. Friendly owners who clearly take a lot of pride in their motel. Would highly recommend this especially for the price.

Great place to stay on your way to somewhere else. The room was neat spacious and has all the things you need. We got the family room which gives you a lot of space with the family. I would suggest trying to get a special rate. If youre looking for rooms with a view this place might not be for you.

Rooms are very clean, neat and tidy with very comfy beds. Motel owners are very very nice and attentive. There's a pool for the kids and adults to wash off the days travel and a BBQ area to compliment that!! Always a stop for us on our travels

Stayed overnight and extremely happy. The motel may look a bit tired but the owners are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant. The rooms are spotless and the bed very comfortable. We had dinner brought to our room and it was very tasty and plentiful. Highly recommend this motel.

Stayed 1 night in a deluxe queen room. Absolutely spotlessly clean and comfortable The room was very cosy with a very large shower. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The motel is on a busy road although, traffic noise was not an issue at all. Great fresh breakfast and very good prices. I will definitely stay again.
