“Great stay in Lismore City Motor Inn”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Travelling from Melbourne to The Gold Coast on a motoring holiday we stayed in four motels enroute of which the Lismore City Motor Inn was the best. This was based primarily on the friendliness and effort put in by the staff, Sam & Karl to complement the clean rooms. Karl took great pride the purchase and cooking of his prime fillet steaks so if you are thinking about where to eat: head upstairs! Outstanding feature: friendly, helpful staff

Room Tip: Room 116 was clean, comfortable and quiet. It was on the ground floor at the pool end.

Stayed here whilst visiting family. Second stay in 9 years. Staff friendly and helpful. Very clean . Room is comfortable if basic but has everything you need. Very reasonable cost and near centre of town.

I stayed here last week for a work trip; I chose the hotel simply because it was one of the cheapest in Lismore. Honestly I was expecting a fairly ordinary room. I was nicely surprised. I was put in one of their refurbished rooms and it was excellent. It is clean, well appointed, nice big TV, very large comfortable bed & great air-conditioning. The room has a small modern kitchen with enough appliances to cook some basic meals; also the bathroom has a fantastic large shower.

Now the important part of the review, breakfast… I ordered the simple Bacon and eggs for $10. Wow, beautifully cooked, such a decent helping & delicious! And exactly spot on time!

The gentleman on the counter was friendly and helpful as well.

My room had a little road noise, very minor, but that doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Personally I don’t think you can go wrong!

Room Tip: Ask for one of their refurbished rooms.

This motel is perfect for those wanting somewhere to use as a base for seeing the local area or an overnight stay. The check in was quick and easy. First impressions of the room was that it was of good size, light and looked to be recently renovated. The bathroom was also a good size and modern. Showers weren't great temperature ran hot and cold all the time and no microwave/toaster in room could be a pain? Bathrooms have sliding doors you can hear other rooms open and close them as the bang loudly even when trying to be quiet it was difficult.

When you first turn up to Lismore City Motor Inn, you think it is going to be a bit of a let down. However, the reception staff are very helpful and the accommodation itself is comfortable. The motel has upgraded a number of the rooms that I've stayed in over 3 or 4 separate trips - so the beds are good and the facilities in the room, whilst basic, are certainly adequate. The bathroom is big enough for a party - so if you are staying as a couple, there should be no arguments getting ready in the morning.
Parking is right out the front of your room and the location of the motel is great - only a 5 minute walk back into Lismore CBD, yet in a quiet part of town.
Realistically, the service and the location are 4 stars - the rooms themselves are probably 3 stars - but I'd rather stay in a more basic place where you're looked after by helpful staff and the surroundings are quiet than have something more plush and be treated like a number in a queue. Will be staying again.

Giving this place a 4 as for Lismore was a great motel. Stayed over NY period for 3 nights and is the best place in Lismore we have stayed ... will defo be our choice of stay when next up for Tropical Fruits. Had a newly decorated room and the pool area was well good and the Lady on reception was hilarious ... she made you feel like you were staying with friends. Very clean Motel and a great location.

Stayed here during a work trip in September 2012, and couldn't go past their amazing service! Fantastic location and staff very friendly - they had a good sense of humour when I accidentally locked myself out of my room, leaving my keys inside!! Would stay here again if I had the chance to visit Lismore in the near future.
