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 enjoyed our stay at Yamba Motor Inn, Leanne was so friendly and helpful. Spacious room for three and handy to shops/town. Great for a one night stay for us! The bbq area is wonderful with two BBQs and gas burners

I have spent many nights here while working on a nearby construction project over the last 4 years. The motel has been significantly updated in that time and rooms have great modern amenities and ample parking, even if you have a trailer or large vehicle. There is also a pool, gym and large bbq area, perfect for multiple families or groups.
If only all the accommodation in Yamba was as modern and spotlessly clean as this property is! Great location, close to shops. The best thing about the Yamba Motor Inn though are the managers, Leanne and Rod. They work tirelessly to maintain and improve the property and are fantastic hosts. Friendly country town hospitality in a great beach holiday spot like Yamba is hard to find. Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

Returning to Yamba after many visits to find this little gem was a bonus :)

Leanne and Rod did a great job of welcoming us and were happy to help with all our requests.
Also, the cleaning staff, Belinda +, were very accommodating and efficient during this busy time of year.

Our room was super comfortable, with a kitchenette and separate bedroom, so plenty of room to spread out and relax. The pool area was clean and inviting with plenty of tables and chairs to relax and enjoy the space.
The outdoor bbq and sitting area provided another area to relax under cover from the heat or weather, this made the atmosphere of the motel very homey and spacious. There was also extra parking space behind our room to park a boat or extra cars/bikes etc.
It was great to have the availability of the guest laundry and clothes line which we also used.

We stayed at the motel for 10 days and after staying at several places in Yamba over the years we have found this motel to best suit our needs, and look forward to returning in the future :)

Great work

Stayed for two nights at the end of a road trip, was a great way to end, having two rooms meant there was plenty of space for all. Kitchen was well equipped with all the necessities for a basic cook up (microwave and electric frying pan, no stove). Very nice pool and bbq area and a short walk to Yamba town. Shower left a bit to be desired but that was the only negative comment I could make.

Great, convenient, cost effective place to stay in Yamba. Clean apartment, great pool and bbq facilities, easy parking and friendly owners. They even booked a local cab so we could visit a recommended Italian restaurant for an evening out without the car!

Have stayed at the Yamba Motor Inn a few times now. Every time, all of the staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. The rooms are always very clean and tidy and the Inn has a camp kitchen so you don't have to eat out every night. It it located a short drive (easy walk too) to the town centre and beaches. It has a great pool for relaxing around after a day at the beach. Definitely recommend staying here. Have already pre-booked our next stay.

Good quality motel, we stayed 5 days and found it very comfortable. The BBQ/outdoor kitchen was great, kids loved the pool and I loved the location. Staff so friendly and helpful. Could tell the decor had been updated so it was clean, fresh and contemporary. Comfy beds!

The front part of the property borders the main road in and out of Yamba. The property has quite a few rooms set back from the main road and its occupancy was very low during my stay yet I was given the room closest to the road and struggled to get any sleep. Disappointing to not be given a quieter room given the low occupancy.

Response from Leanne Simpson, General Manager at Yamba Motor Inn
Responded 17 Nov 2023
Hi Charles, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor. We are extremely sorry to hear that your stay was so horrendous. We do try hard to keep all our guests happy and comfortable during their stay however had you had indicated that you would have preferred rooms away from the road I'm sure we could have accommodated that request for you however you did not communicate anything to us either on arrival or departure so it was hard for us to know that you were not happy. We were also sorry that our service level was given a 1 given that we were oblivious to your needs. all the best for your future travels. Regards YMI

We stayed the yamba motor inn for a couple of nights. Room was small and struggled to find a spot for a suitcase. Bed was good and room clean. Pool area was great but water a bit cold due to amount of recent rain. It’s about 2. 5km to main shops. Coles and yamba mall. 2 min away. Would recommend for overnight s or two only due to lack of space for storage.
