If you turn right out of the motel it is about 300 mts from MacDonald's and KFC and other fast food about 800 mts away.
If you walk to the left there are two pubs. We dined in one and the staff tried to double charge us for drinks. Pretty typical for a mining boom town.
The motel is your typical brick constructed low set. The room was a double bed and small lounge and table. The bathroom was modern and clean.
We had no problem with management and rang to advise we would be in late which was no problem. Early starts ( 4 am) and late finishes are standard in the area with workers on 12 hour shifts.
I think some of the problems with the experience of the reviewers is that Roma and the surrounding areas are in the midst of a coal seam gas and coal extraction boom. There are thousands of workers flooding into town and the companies are booking out blocks of the rooms as accommodation is so scare.
We booked late and our company paid a premium to get rooms.
You wont get a cheap room and the miners have a lot of cash themselves and the companies could not care less what it cost for a room and the meals the men order. In that environment you wont find any bargains or be in a position to negotiate.
The cost of living in Roma and the surrounding area is expensive so don't expect cheap meals, goods or services.
Book well ahead and be prepared to stay in surrounding towns
