We stayed here for one night. This is an older motel which has been renovated, although more could be done. It's a good clean motel, with decent size rooms, not huge, but not tiny either. It had everything we needed. Very clean. Friendly hosts.

We paid $99 (cheap yes, but...) for a queen room, but the room was gross. Carpet stained, old and grubby, grime and dust under the microwave. The towels were old, thin and marked, and the sheets old, and had a few small holes and stains (as did our blanket). Small basket in bathroom containing our face washer and soap was...

The wife and I booked a room at the Fountain View Motel for a 2 night stay in April. The requirements were a cheap price, clean rooms, reasonably secure off-street parking for our motorcycles and convenience to the Dubbo Showground. As a couple, we hadn't been to Dubbo for about 35 years. I had personally been to Dubbo on business...

This was a quick trip to Dubbo and this motel was centrally located, with pleasant staff, wifi, and a clean room. For one night (or two), it was fine. The room was not big but it was adequate for what we needed.

Ok motel for a night, beds need to be softer bit like sleeping on the floor. Maybe need up grading to new beds. Carpets needs gleaning, probably needs an overhaul. I stay at a lot of Choice hotels, this one needs a bit of attention. Would not stay on next visit. Host very nice

Booked a "pet friendly" room for family of 4 travelling interstate with 2 cats but room did not accommodate as only 1 bed. However, hotel manager provided us with another room which was more than adequate and suitable for the entire tribe! And... we were only charged the standard rate. Would definitely recommend to other travellers with pets. Thank you...

We were traveling from Toowoomba to Canberra and Dubbo and we were looking for a motel that we could have a dog in. The motel is showing it's age, however it is comfortable and had everything we wanted for a good nights sleep. This motel has 1 room available to have a pet in, so make sure you book before...

We stayed over the Easter weekend and we found the hotel very comfortable and a good price. We had our two sons with us and they enjoyed the pool and the water playground right across the road. The owners are so friendly and we felt very welcome. Location was convenient and the room was quiet. Good value for money and...

We were a little disappointed with the Econa Lodge. The rating given doesn't seem to match the description. When we arrived a few minutes early, our room was not ready, so we said we would go shopping. The Owner took my wife aside and offered her other selections of rooms which were ready, but none met our requirements. We left...

Just 2.5 stars ... not their self rated 3.5 stars. ISSUES: The house manager bell kept going on every ten minutes through the night. There is a layer of grime on many things. There are three separate switches to put on TV or air conditioner. Drinking water was tainted with poxy rose petals. Front door needed considerable pressure to close......
