“It was cheap.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

Hard to find a staff member after hours for an emergency. As the after hours mobile was switched off. There was a squashed dead moth on my "clean" towel that was folded on the bed. Turned me off a little after that. The bed didn't feel clean, the sheets were slightly stained. The draft came through the tiny cracks under the window. Ive stayed in other budget motels before and don't expect resort style quality but clean linen is a basic requirement ! I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone with standards.

I have had the pleasure of staying in the Amaroo for a couple of nights. I had a display at the Busselton Show for a couple of days. I was very impressed with the room on my arrivals. The friendly service at the front desk was very nice to find as well. While the room isn't opulent, it is very clean and well presented and has everything that you need. After a 12 hour day at the show, it was a wonderful surprise to stagger in the door and find the bin had been emptied, the bed made, the towels neatly arranged etc. Approx two months ago I was lucky?? enough to stay at a FIVE star establishment, the bin was never emptied, the bed never made and no one set foot in the door to see if everything was okay. So, well done Amaroo, keep up the great work.

Definitely a must stay if I am going to Busselton again. It is very close to the Busselton Jetty and value for money! They provide services like barbecue and picnic facilities,visitor car parking, DVD hire, free bus shuttle service from Visitor Centre and tourist bus stop, and laundry (washing machine, dryer, iron), etc.

Part of the Budget Chain of motels and this didn't disappoint. Booked a few days prior and confirmed reasonable rate. When we checked in three days later we were so impressed with the spotless and well maintained room that we had. Everything worked and even fresh sheets for the second night, don't see that too often. Great shower and plenty of hot water. Couldn't fault property and thanks to owners for an enjoyable stay. Centrally located and a short walk from good eateries, you can leave you car and have a few well earned wines!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the back, the front ones can be a bit noisy with the traffic from Bussell Highway.

Rooms are clean, well maintained and the bed was very comfortable. Parking is right at your door and walking distance to everything you want. Great Atmosphere lovely location and just felt very comfortable. Noelene and Ken were excellent hosts and would defiantly be staying at Amaroo for further trips down south.

No frills, just a country motel
Stayed with work while in Busselton, wasn't too bad, but nothing flash that's for sure.

Right on the main highway, so ask for a room at the rear of the property. Close to large showroom stores and other take away restaurants.

Room Tip: as it's on the main highway, ask for a room away in the back

We stayed for one night while travelling through the district. The room was very clean & comfortable with a nice en suite & a good shower with good water pressure. The bed was a comfortable queen bed & we could park in front or our door. It is a short walk to the Ship Inn Hotel which has an excellent family bistro. A good place for the passing traveller to stay.

Room Tip: If appropriate, ask for a seniors rate.
