Fitzroy Motor Inn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our recent visit to the Fitzroy Motor Inn was great. The rooms are now equipped with Microwave, kettle, Iron/board, air-con, TV with inputs for your own gear. The owners were great and for the item of clothing accidently left behind, was contacted before we had finished breakfast, and was returned to us via another guest that was travelling for the same reason. 5 stars for excellence and free wifi.

Great motel and perfect for our needs. Clean and comfy with all facilities and a great affordable tariff too. Highly recommended. Great breakfast delivered to our room this morning too and right on time.

Arrived late at night, the staff were very accomodating. (Thanks!) Nice classic aussie motel room. The double bed was pretty small, im short and even my feet touched the end on the bed however I cant really complain for the price, which was very afordable. It did look like they were renovating the rooms.

Arrived into Rocky about 7pm and checked into Fitzroy Motor Inn. The staff were friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. Not very many guests so the place was quiet. Situated in good location.

Rang the motel in the evening of a long trip. The owner was friendly and helpful. Gave me the advertised deal price from a booking website. The motel room was clean and comfortable. It is an older motel, but refurbished nicely. Close enough to walk to local pub and restaurants. Plenty of coffee making facilities and supply of milk. Fridge and microwave. Overall...brilliant for the price. Parking is good too.

We read the reviews and thought umm maybe not worth the money but we found a clean room and really for $85 was in a good location but we found that allowing people to smoke directly outside your room is very unhealthy and of putting we are not smokers and this stunk of cigarettes as astrays were over flowing with cigarette butts, also the room was a bit musty like it has never been aired and the bed was flinstone style very hard. Also dont bother trying to speak to reception they dont understand english and couldn't wait to go back to doing whatever but serving customers, but for a one nighter was ok but i wouldnt stay any longer even for that price

After a very long drive I enjoyed the overnight stay here. Rooms were clean, spacious and quiet. A bit outdated but at 80 odd bucks a night it's a bargain. Location it's fairly central not a long drive to centre.

The room we were in was not only very noisy but very smelly. We are 100% positive someone at some stage had died in the room and had been left there for a number of days. As we have been funeral directors and now retired, we knew the odour as soon as we went into the room, I said to my husband what does that remind you of and his immediate answer was, someone has died in here, I said yes that is certainly IT. That is one smell which is too hard to get rid of.

We booked through TripAdvisor which took us to the Agoda booking site. Booked and paid for a nights stay. Then when we arrived the lady at reception said they were fully booked out and said we needed to contact Agoda for a refund. How did this happen? We could not find any accommodation that night!

Cons: Well what can I say? This place needs to be burnt to the ground. The rooms are filthy The beds are rock hard The tv remotes don't work The Tv has little sound Wifi only works outside the room The bunk beds are ready to callapse and kill your children Bring an interpreter because the owner/manger cannot speak English No cutlery or plates You do get cups that are dirty Ripped curtains, so the big bright sign out the front can blind you all night long Pros You do get an aircon in the window that is so loud it drowns out the sound of the traffic and trucks passing by Paid for two nights stayed one and got the hell out of dodge
