My wife and I stayed here for 1 night in March before spending the day at the Dubbo Zoo. The room was a very good size and clean. Maybe it is a bit dated, but it was clean and comfortable and that is what counts.
It is very close to the local RSL Club (very good dinner) and we were not troubled by any noise at night despite the motel being on a main road.
The staff were very helpful and friendly.
I would definitely recommend this motel for a 1 night stay.

Beautifully landscaped pool, but dirty and right on a main street with no privacy. Looked as it it hadn't been treated or vacuumed for at least a week, a fellow came out to turn the filter on while we were swimming and later that afternoon we were told not to use it the next morning "because it's being cleaned". Room just your average budget hotel. Service was dreadful. The cleaner came in without knocking on our first morning there, waking us all up after longhaul travel the day before. We asked about ordering breakfast for the next day and were told that "there won't be ANY service, it's Christmas Day." How rude of us to expect breakfast while staying at a motel. Then on Christmas Day the same woman woke us up at 6 am! She barged in without knocking - "oh I couldn't see the car so I thought you'd already gone." There is no shortage of inexpensive motels in Dubbo, don't bother with this one.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Our room type: Standard room (1 queen size bed + 1 single bed)
Ensuite bathroom
Facilities: Microwave, Bar fridge, Tea & Coffee making facilities
Price: Approx $91++ per night
Location: Opposite the road and walking distance to CBD shops
Also to add that the interior was tired looking and nothing fancy but the room was spotless clean and the air-cond works just fine, especially handy on sizzling summer days!
The not so good part was that the walls were quite thin and hence you pray for a good neighbour on your stay.

We stayed one night on our way home from Melbourne. It was comfortable, convenient and had most things we needed. It is old an in need of a refurb - there are weird signs warning of so many things you can't do which we found funny. It's not a place to relax and enjoy - it is noisy due to the location - lots of trucks - but if you want a cheap one nighter on your way thru its ok.

I had to cancel accommodation due to unforeseen circumstances, was charged full price (not unexpectedly) however simply advising the staff of circumstance meant a hostile and rude encounter. Very displeasing and by far the worst service I have ever experience nationally and internationally. I would not recommend.
