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.

Our room was modern and spotless. Appears it was recently renovated. Top notch linen and towels and thoughtful touches like a windscreen washing bucket/squeegee. There is a pub next door where we ate well. Nice country town too. Lovely little pool too and a guest laundry.

This hotel was booked for us by a friend, and we were a bit apprehensive when we pulled up as it displayed 3 stars on the sign out front and from the kerb it looked a little tired. Wow were we surprised when we entered the room. We had the king room as we were there for a few days, and it was fantastic. We would certainly rate it well above the displayed stars. Probably 4-4.5 stars. The room was immaculately clean and the bed was so comfortable. The bathroom was generous and the kitchen included a microwave, fridge, jug and toaster and complimentary plunger coffee with espresso cups. A comfy lounge and table and chairs completed the room. It was right in the middle of town, but we heard little traffic, and was close to shops, pub etc. Don’t drive past this hidden gem.

An Ok motel with nicely appointed Roma and convenient Main Street location. The Wi-Fi was terrible with a meager 1Gb allowance which is inadequate when one once to Skype family back hm. I would have given more had it not been for the poor /abrupt and unwelcoming customer experience on arrival. Next time I’ll drive by and look for another for sure.

The Motel has very nice rooms. But if you want working WiFi don't stay in the back rooms. Or make sure the owner does not turn off your wifi. I asked at the counter if they have WiFi and he said yes. But it did not work the single was so weak. I find that a rip off.

We were in town for the Hayland Gathering, and our family of 6 (2 adults, 3 children and 1 infant) stayed here. We booked a family room, it consisted of a queen bed, 2 single beds, a fold out single sofa bed and a portable cot. There was a small table and chairs. The room was very small, and compact - however for the price, and the fact that we were out most of the day, it was completely suitable for our needs. The room was very clean and tidy, and the staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. The pool was great, nice and clean and the children enjoyed swimming. The location is great, right in the middle of town, walkable to cafes, shops etc. We can highly recommend this motel and would most certainly stay here again.

Very clean modern rooms. The owners were very helpful with our booking at the last minute . We had a great stay and a dip in the pool after a day on the road was perfect for the kids. Great location right in the middle of town.

Great pit stop, only few meters away form Sturt Highway. Tiny town with a beautiful Silo art. The motor inn is few meters walk away from local IGA, bakery, restaurant and bistro. Easy check-in and check-out, parking in front of the room, very clean and comfortable bed. Highly recommended.

We couldn’t find a single thing to fault here. Everything you could possibly want was supplied. Even a set up to wash the car windshield. Located in the centre of town, quiet and clean. Easily the best motel we have stayed in this year. Would definitely stay again.

This motel is ideal for weary travellers. It is quiet, clean and spacious. The staff are friendly. It is in the main street so walking distance to restaurants is great after a long day of travel. The rooms at the back of the motel are best as they are off the highway and very quiet.

The king bed was so comfortable with good linen and a fluffy doona. The room was refurbished and spotlessly clean. Good water pressure in the shower. Nice modern décor and a couch for 2 people. We will stay again.
