Small motel set back from Ruthven st., which diminishes any traffic noise. Bonus is the complimentary mini bar, with soft drink and tim tams. Within 5 mins. drive to Toowoomba hospital. Not sure about all rooms, but ours appeared to be refurbished in recent years, beds

Good sized room with great modern bathroom. Nice extras such as drinks and Tim Tams in the fridge too! As my room was nearest the busy road, there was a lot of traffic noise and the internet didn't work much of the time, however this place was well located and very good value.

Hi Glyn, It's nice to hear from our guests and their experience staying at the Downs Motel. Yes our rooms are a generous size and we have renovated some of the bathrooms. The Free Mini Bar goes down a treat and we are great value for money. We are set back off the road a bit from the traffic noise and it's quiet from 10pm at night till early morning, so most of our guests get a great sleep. The internet has it's moments and can be rebooted. We are in the processes of up-grading our receivers. Thanks for your comments. Kind Regards Di

The good points were clean room, nice towels. Sadly this is all I can say that is positive. The location is awful, in the middle of a retail centre, next to a large Joyce Mayne store. Parking is totally inadequate and not allocated which meant that when we returned from dinner

Hi Sharon, thanks for your comments. Unfortunately we can't please everyone. Most of our customers love the location as we are so handy to everything. I also live on site and are available 24/7 to help you with anything you may need and parking is not an issue. There is plenty of parking and sometimes when we are full people park out the front of the motel, which is also the Motel's parking and we have never had any issues with security as there are security cameras everywhere. Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Kind Regards Di

You are on a main road leading to another main road but the traffic noise was not really noticeable. The rooms are being refurbished but we had one of the older ones and it was of a very good standard. Remembering you are in the biggest inland city in Australia. The relief

For needing somewhere to stay overnight while in toowoomba it was very close to shopping, had comforts and set up needed for a comfortable stopover. Firm bed, heater could work too well. Turned it off during the night as room on top floor held great well. No noisy traffic
