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.

The managers are very welcoming, arranged an early check-in and drove us to the airport the following morning.
Our room was close to the street but was so quiet, no traffic noise at all. It had everything we could want in a motel room, aircon, comfortable bed, table and chairs, a kitchenette with microwave, sink, plates, knives, forks etc., detergent and tea towel. Wow! No washing the cups in a bathroom basin and drying on tissues.
The motel is close to restaurants in the main street. Hay has an excellent hire car/taxi service ($10 flat rate to/from anywhere in Hay including the airport). We used the service to visit several of the excellent museums in town.

Our family of four stayed for one night in a family room. Spotless, the room was pleasantly appointed & the kitchenette was handy too. Pool & the pool area is nice & appreciated after a long day driving. There is also a guest laundry at no cost (washer & dryer) & we made use of this - a laundry now seems to be quite a rare feature. Saltbush is the only motel on our NSW road trip where a guest laundry has been available. Overall very comfortable & we would have been happy to stay longer.

Used the hotel website to book a twin room for 1 night at a rate of $145/night.

The motel is located in the main street on the northern end of town, opposite the supermarket.

All units are single storey with car parking out the front.

A very helpful check in. We were allocated room 18, located up towards the front of the complex.

Our room was very spacious. A queen size bed & a single. 3 chairs & a dining table.
There is a kitchenette, including kitchen sink, with kettle, toaster, microwave, bar fridge, crockery cutlery & provided washing up materials as well .The window is openable.
The beds were very comfortable.
Wifi was fast & free. The air con works well.
The ensuite is a good size, with a generous number of toilettries. The water hot with a good pressure

We have stayed here twice before & think it very comfortable, good value & next time we are coming thro, we hope they have room for us.

We stayed one night for a wedding. Easy check in. Room was absolutely spotless, crisp linen, plenty of room with small lounge and table and chairs and beautiful framed photos throughout the room.
We stayed in the king room.
Motel is modern, neat and tidy and a perfect place to stay. Easy walking distance to pubs, shops, supermarkets etc.

We were just passing through so only stayed one night. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is situated on the main street of Hay so there is some road noise from trucks travelling through the town, though since this isn't the main highway it wasn't too bad. A few of the fixtures and fittings needed some attention but overall it was good value for money. There are the usual options for food in a country town and all of these are close by. The supermarket is right across the road if you need any supplies. There are some lovely walks nearby along the river with lots of bird life if the weather is friendly.

Spent the night there after driving from Adelaide with my son. I stayed here in 2014, Nd the place remains one of the best overnight stays for early revellers like us. Hay is the only significant landmark and town in an otherwise desolate landscape. Best hot shower ever experienced. Met the hotel cat who was very friendly. Neat, tidy and very comfortable. Thanks again

Booked 3 nights in a Queen room using the motel's website. All very easy.
The motel is located in the main street, opposite a supermarket. I asked for a quiet room, so was allocated Room 8 right down the back. It is adjacent to the pool. There is an outdoor seating area in front of the room. It is all single storey & there is parking very close to the room.
Our room is spacious & clean & quiet. In addition to the usual toaster, microwave & jug, there is crockery & cutlery & a kitchen sink, ehich is really useful. This room has a queen size bed & a single. There is air con, which works well & wifi is free & works well too.
The ensuite had a walk in shower with no window.
There is a free guest laundry with washingmachine & dryer which is great. The laundry detergent is provided gratis. There is an iron & board provided in the room.
The owners are friendly & helpful & nothing is a bother.
There was nothing extra that we needed. A wonderful relaxing stay.

Congratulations to the owners & managers of this extremely well appointed, comfortable & accomodating motel. At reception we were greeted warmly & efficiently, our room was clean, impressively appointed with one of the best designed rooms we’ve come across, including a kitchenette and the location near supermarket & eating options was excellent.
We only stayed overnight so can’t verify the other facilities on offer - have to say we are pleased there are no mice !!!

We stayed here on our way to Adelaide & on our return. This is the best motel have stayed in. Clean, comfortable bed, shower was good. Microwave was handy as we heated some frozen meals. Toaster was handy for breakfast. Even had a couple of biscuits. If you want to stay in Hay this one is a beauty. Even though heard a couple of trucks they were not loud, as imotel is tucked away, so very quiet. Highly recommend.

Very friendly staff, very clean room with a great mini kitchenette complete with sink microwave cutlery crockery. There is an IGA across the road so it’s easy to make your own breakfast as well as prepare a basic dinner.
We were lucky we booked as all the motels are booked out at the moment due to the filming of Mad Max 111 in the area. Don’t assume you will get a room.
