My husband booked this directly through the Motel for 3 nights and found the managing staff extremely helpful and friendly. We were pleasantly surprised at the cost. It is a great location as you can walk to the 3 Sisters and short drives into Katoomba main street, Scenic World etc.

We were in room 104 which is at the end on the top floor and it had everything we needed. It was roomy, clean, comfortable and, yes a little dated, also included a microwave and kettle. We had breakfast downstairs for $6.00 per person which included cereals, porridge, prunes, fruit, toast, crumpets or muffins with condiments, tea/coffee and apple and orange juice. Not bad for the price!

We went to the club up the road on the Saturday night for the buffet dinner and it only cost $25 for all you can eat! Great, friendly service there too. We enjoyed this friendly little place, the quietness, the staff, the location and will be returning in future. Thank you to all who made our stay enjoyable and pleasant.

We have stayed at Echo Point Motor Inn several times, most recently being last weekend. It is in a fabulous location only a few minutes walk to the 3 Sisters and is a good base for a stay in the mountains. The rooms are not flash but they are quite spacious, have all the facilities we need and we have always found them clean and comfortable. There is plenty of parking and you can park right outside your room. At night it is so quiet as there is very little traffic after dark. The fellow who checked us in was very helpful. We didn't have the continental breakfast as we have our favourite cafe's for breakfast but at $6 it seems like good value. If you are not after 5 star accommodation and just want a good value, quiet and comfortable place to stay then I would recommend Echo Point Motor Inn.

Room Tip: We usually book a view room with windows that face Echo Point

My husband and I stayed here from 5th June to 8th June and were so happy with our choice
The manager/ owner was so very nice and helpful
Our room was very spacious and clean.. The bathroom could use an update but was no problem at all... The bed was very comfy and the pillows were fine
The continental breakfast supplied was very tasty with choices from cereal/ porridge to toast.. Crumpets and raisin English muffins and fruit and prunes ...
We would certainly stay again and recommend it to anyone wanting a clean tidy and value for money hotel.
Thanks for a very enjoyable stay in katoomba

Yes the motel is in a good location, with just a short walk to Echo Point. HOWEVER, the motel cannot simply believe that this will be the only think required to attract guests - especially if they want them to return!

There was a shoe left under our bed, the shower had hair all over the floor from the previous guest and the floor was obviously dirty. PLUS the teacups were stacked back on the tray and had obviously been used before - let's just say the lipstick all over one of the cups was enough to turn me off!

There are many motels/B&B's/hotels in the area, many of which are in the town centre of Katoomba. Most people spend a very limited of time at Echo Point, therefore my suggestion would be to stay in town at one of the CLEANER places and then you are in walking distance to all of the cafes etc and simply catch the bus to Echo Point.

Although it was the cleaner who should have cleaned the room properly, it is the owner who should be giving the final check - as an owner of a motel myself in Victoria, this simply is not good enough.

Clean and acceptable for the price and location. Stayed here for one night so we could hike the valley and would stay here again for a night or two no problem. Decent shower, rooms have heating, electric blankets, fridge, microwave & kettle.
