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.

We found the Millicent Motel to be clean, tidy and excellent value for money. The owners even went above and beyond posting items to us which we accidentally left in our room. Amazing service. We highly recommend the Millicent Motel for travellers.

Had found a home for beloved old rotty and close to Mum's hospice-frustrating leaving as rooms trespassed Every day!after giving thousands,male owners made it too uncomfortable watching 24hrs/day If I go fifty feet he's crept over locking or unlocking my door-taking advantage of using anything I own to save the almighty dollar!

Stayed here 'cos it was close to where I was getting my 4WD serviced. The room was actually made up of about 4 rooms - kitchenette, bathroom, lounge/bedroom and bedroom. Yep, it probably needs a reno, but it had everything you needed, and I liked the layout and a real lounge! Very unusual, but nice. We had the free breakfast which was quite nice. There's another place I'll try next time just for a comparison, but I'd be quite happy to stay here again.

Good value for money, clean rooms and the bed was so, so comfortable in room 9! The staff were very friendly. They have a beautiful cat that hangs around near the kitchen too. He was so sweet. Would stay again.

We stayed at the Millicent Motel for a night and found it to be a no frills budget motel with clean and comfortable rooms, friendly staff and good complementary breakfast. There are quite a few restaurants around for lunch/dinner.

Clean and tidy, comfortable beds , great wifi, Tv etc and a HUGE suite with a large bedroom and good bathroom area. Free breakfast, friendly host. An older country Motel with a few miles on the rooms, but it all works well. Priced well and has a good feel.

The whole motel feels down at heal but it’s hard to point to specific issues. The room décor was certainly tired but the amenities were okay. The bed was good enough and we slept fine. The bathroom functioned. It had been partially updated with a cheap vanity unit (only the door wasn't installed properly) but the shower stall still had a plastic curtain and old fittings. The air conditioner above the door operated but was a bit noisy. We noticed that some other rooms had been upgraded to split system air conditioning but have no idea if it works any better. In our room the bottom window at the front didn’t close so we did get too much noise from the forecourt. We didn’t try the complimentary breakfast. The reception area and dining room are not exactly attractive. But to be fair to the owners, the motel provided us a place to sleep reasonably comfortably for an affordable cost. They would be challenged, I suspect, to achieve a return on investment for properly updating this old motel but not doing so condemns them to a slow slide out of business. It’s a quandary many country motels face. In this case however, the easy access to the Coonawarra region wineries and restaurants should boost opportunities to attract business and survive.

I see that you travel a lot and have stayed at many motels you have written 749 reviews so I'm a little bit confused about your comments, (feel down at the heel but it's hard to pinpoint specific issues ?) The bed was good enough we slept fine, 3 1/2 years ago I brought brand-new Queen beds my rating by guess that have stayed here have highly rated as being very comfy bed. The salesperson that sold me the vanity said how could you go wrong this was one of our best sellers. I took the screwdriver down to the room and readjusted the door hinge, we have curtains in the bathroom as they are removable and can be washed. The air-conditioner was installed 3 1/2 years ago and going off the reviews at the time saying that the motor was very quiet the fan does more revolutions thats where you get (bit noisy). The room you had was booked in to have a brand-new split system air-conditioner installed, the bottom window at the front was opened by guess that stayed the night before I just lifted the fly screen and re-latched the window. The dining room area was booked in to be repainted. In the 4 1/2 years I have done many renovation and maintenance replace fridges TV's furnishing benchtop microwaves bedding also put in recliner chairs and the list goes on far too many things to list as to why you thought that I was doing nothing to restore my business I have no idea. I can only suggest staying at a five-star motel and paying the extra price sorry your stay with us was rather tired and sad.All this for $95 a night with free breakfast and Wi-Fi
