I stayed for one night recently and thought this place was excellent. I was upgraded to a spa room by the wonderful staff upon arrival. The room smelt clean as soon as I entered. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the extra channels on the tv (pay tv) were great! The shower was good and hot, although I love more...

Highly recommend, I used the Motor in for a training venue as well as accommodation. It was easy to get to and very accessible for the participants coming for the training. The staff were amazing and just could not do enough. The prices are very competitive and they supplied tea and coffee for the 2 days in the price. The...

We stayed here for one night en-route to Brisbane. Checkin/checkout was friendly and efficient. I had forgotten to ask for a room on the ground floor when I booked, but my request was accommodated when we arrived which was much appreciated. We were in room 1 which faced on to an incredibly busy and noisy road, however the hotel has...

Hi Tessacate, thank you so much for taking the time to write a very detailed review about our property and facilities on Trip Advisor.

We stayed two nights in unit 1 which has a shower over the spa. While we managed the climb up and over the step into the spa for a shower I would think it would be a bit awkward for older guests. The unit is quite spacious, very clean with a comfy bed and good kitchenette facilities. The motel is...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor about our property, and the feedback. When guests book direct with us we always try to match our room types with the guests needs, especially with elderly visitors and spa rooms, if we think there will be an issue, we advise against the spa option, however we...

As far as motor inns go, this is as good as they get. We were able to easily get an early check in, the rooms were large and clean, the staff all friendly and the rates reasonable. 15 min walk to city centre. Can recommend.

We had a one bedroom self contained apartment. The accommodation was very clean and modern and quiet. Very comfortable bed and comfy pillows. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating with our early arrival. Very close to the CBD . Will definitely stay here again when next in Toowoomba. Highly recommend this place.
