We first stayed here years ago when it was the F1 motel. Being new at the time it was in pristine condition. Obviously something happened and the name was changed, no matter. The original price was either $69 or $79 per night. Not bad at that time. I have read other reviews and disagree with most of them that day...

I was put up overnight in the Ibis Budget after my Rex flight was cancelled. Budget is the right word - the rooms are cramped, with no decorations, though the bed is relatively comfortable. The major problem with this motel is the air conditioner - it's as noisy as many of the trucks that drive through Dubbo, and even with...

Dear Simon L, We enjoyed accommodating the group of passengers who were delayed here in Dubbo. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations during your stay, but are glad you ultimately had a comfortable sleep. We recognise the situation with the air conditioners, are actively improving these by the refurbishment of every air conditioner in the hotel....

We stayed here overnight on a Friday. Staff were really welcoming and friendly. Room was neat, tidy, reasonable enough. The air conditioning was ridiculously noisy, so much so, I got zero sleep (not a place for a light sleeper!!). You basically get what you pay for, it's cost effective and facility is as advertised, being budget accommodation.

This hotel was not a very pleasant experience for us. While the staff are friendly and welcoming the room we had was tiny and for the price we paid I would have expected more. It felt like a summer camp dorm room, tiny, steel cube. There was nowhere to put bags or toiletries so there was constant tripping over our...

My fiancée and I stopped here on our way to Victoria from Brisbane. Room was tidy, reception staff were friendly and there is also a lock up car park. Only issue we had was the noise made my the air conditioner, and it was too stuffy in the room to leave it off.

We stay here quite regularly on stop overs between Adelaide and Brisbane. We always manage to get a room even at late notice. The rooms are small and basic so perfect for a stop over. There is a small pool and free onsite parking.

We were being tight choosing this place and overall it was good value for the money paid. The staff were excellent; friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

This is a simple no frills hotel. Expect very little but clean sheets, a shower and a bar of soap. It is very basic but does the job as a simple stopover. There's a nice clean pool, continental breakfast offered for $9 and a fairly secure carpark. The highlight of the hotel is its extremely courteous staff who are old...
