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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed one night.
The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable.
The owners allowed us to park our camper trailer opposite our room on a very pleasant grassed area. This was greatly appreciated.
I understand that other areas are available for parking campers or caravans.
We would definitely stay there again.

I found the rooms clean and tidy and the recent upgrades to the rooms are very pleasing and are professionally outfitted.
The smoking arrangements with the smoking area away from the rooms across the lawn area is great for both smokers and non smokers.
The lamb chops for breakfast topped off another great stay have been coming here for 12 years and will continue to stay. Recommend to everyone travelling to or through St George.

Location is good - close to the start of the river walk and short walk to pubs and restaurants and shops. Room was clean and quiet. There is a microwave and table and chairs which is a thoughtful touch for travellers. Price was reasonable for the area. There is a light just outside the window which made the room very light even with the curtains closed. We put a blanket up at the window to darken the room.

Managers only there for 5 weeks (at 01May2020). Average room with parking bay at the door.
Though not set up for it because of Covid19 & few customers managers cooked a dinner for us at short notice. Breakfast was a feast of bacon, sausage, eggs beans & toast that even I couldn't finish.
Quiet location. Easy access.

It has undercover parking right at the door. There appeared to be only one staff member who was pleasant but not as welcoming as expected.
The room was very comfortable with fresh linen & basics, no cold water in the fridge also no face cloth in the bathroom

The Balonne River Motor Inn is a great place to base yourself when staying in St George. Easy walk down the main street to the shops and for food if needed. Our room was very comfortable and clean. I loved the bed.

Very friendly and down to earth staff. Super clean room, and spacious. They had some plumbing upgrades happening but this didn't interfere with our stay at all. The room was quiet and a very short walk to pubs etc.. I highly recommend a pizza from the local bakery and we also had a meal at the Cobb and Co which was yummy and only a short walk from the hotel. There is kennel boarding just down the road at the vets which I also highly recommend too. I Would highly recommend this place and definitely would stay again. I think its pretty popular so booking is recommended!

Really enjoyed our stay. The owners were lovely people. The room was clean and well maintained. The room was really quiet, we could not hear any outside noise. It was close to everything we needed. the only thing I can think of complaining about was the bed wasn't very comfy. Other than that I would recommend.. If i ever come back to St George I would stay here again.

We stayed overnight here while on an interstate road trip.
The reception was very friendly but had posted notices that were clearly deterring customers with pets.
Our room was spacious and comfortable.
There was a hot shower.
The pool was a welcome opportunity to relax and cool off.
A quiet place to stay, close to town and amenities

Thank you for your review. We have the sign in our office as we are not a pet friendly motel. It is not to deter customers to stay here.
