this motel is by no means 5 (or even 4, or 3.5!) star, but it was adequate for what we needed: a stopover on a 1300km road trip with 3 kids & an infant.
We had Family Room #3 - booked in advance, on a booking website (can't remember, maybe wotif?). Room #3 has a set of bunks, a single, and a double. very basic. well & truly dated. However, it was clean, tidy, all facilities worked (there's a microwave and small bar fridge, we got a small carton of milk as well), and i have no complaints, really - i knew what to expect, which is key.
There's even an above-ground pool, which the kids enjoyed a dip in on a 38C day before we headed out to dinner.
It is close to the first Gundagai fwy exit, Shell petrol, McDonalds & Hungry Jacks.
If you don't have high expectations, and only really need a bed for a break off the Hume, this joint is at a fairly resonable price ($130 total for the night, for five of us for one room).
I didn't take photos - we werent there long enough, and unpacked fairly quickly so the room untidy before i could take a shot!
