We found this hotel to be very clean and comfortable and well worth the $125 we paid
It was near the Toowoomba Hockey Club (Glenvale) where we needed to be for the night so it was very convenient for us. This Hotel is on the outskirts of town near the Racecourse and Wilsonton.
We stayed in room 3. The shower and toilet were new and modern and the Queen Bed was very comfortable. There was free complimentary coffee tea and milk and there was a flat screen TV, couch, iron, table and chairs and complimentary shampoo and soap. There is also a Restaurant, BBq area and courtesy bus for your convenience. Staff are very friendly and accommodating.
I would highly reccommend this hotel for an overnighter or a short stay if you need to be on this side Toowoomba. Very good.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 3 which was perfectly fine.

A reasonably priced older style motel, but rooms have been renovated. The main room was average size, but the bathroom was very large, modern with a long vanity and double shower. The hotel is on the fringe of town, but near airport. Complimentary bottled water provided and excellent after sales service by the hosts. Definately worth considering.

We stayed here overnight to take our child to St Andrews Hospital - the location was great, only 5 minutes to the hospital. Service was so friendly and helpful - thanks Gary. The family room with 2 bedrooms was ideal, with TVs in both rooms. This room was nice and spacious with a little table & chairs in the main room. The newly renovated bathroom was really nice and spotlessly clean.

It's an ok stay. There was nothing that really stood out for me whilst staying here. The greeting is nice enough on reception. The rooms are very standard. I guess modern decor, trendy colours and a change of the bedspread would lift the rooms appearance to give that younger look to match the newly renovated bathroom. The bathroom is the fantastic feature about the room. The bathroom is huge, modern, comes with soap, shampoo etc.. The only issue I have with the motel is that the rooms don't block out much sound. I've had the same issue with another motel in Toowoomba, which was also built with brick. Being a brick building you'd expect a bit of noise prevention, however I could clearly hear conversations from the women in the room next door to me whilst she was chatting on the ph during late hours. The road noise also gets a little noisy with the trucks going past. Apart from that the airport and shops are close by.

The Sunray Motor Inn is part of the Golden Chain Group so you will receive a tariff discount if you hold a gold link travel card. Upon check in we met Gary who was a happy, friendly chap. We had a ground floor non smoking room. It was clean, relatively roomy & recently modernised. Bed is firm but comfortable. The bathroom has also been recently renovated. Shower had great pressure, huge vanity, exhaust fan, opening window & (thankfully) did not have an annoying shower curtain. The Sunray has a small lovely pool area where you can enjoy a swim or in our case a cuppa in the morning sun. The Sunray is positioned on a somewhat busy intersection in Toowoomba West however this did not effect the enjoyment of our stay. Check it out...

Room Tip: Request ground floor unit for easy access to your vehicle
