We could not be more pleased with the family rooms we stayed in at the Poplars Motor Inn. They were spacious and while the ensuite a little dated everything else was first class. In fact, we stay here every time we are passing through for this very reason.

Rooms are very large and clean and tariff is very reasonable. Rooms do need updating, especially the bathrooms. Nice young family running this motel and trying I think to get the needed work done. Would choose a room at the back as the highway can be noisy.

We stopped here in the late arvo hoping for a room. They didnt disappoint. $90 for a family sized room. Clean and comfy although the bed could of been more centred in the room to get in and out. The couch was maybe to big taking up the room. Lovely mature couple on reception standing in for family members who...

My family of four stayed here overnight after a long drive from Broken Hill going through to the Gold Coast. We have travelled this road for many years and decided to try somewhere different. Expected it might be a little dated and it was a touch, but the rooms were big and very comfortable. The room did not have a...

An older hotel. But very clean and comfortable. Reasonable priced room's $80 and $90 a night. The owner's are so lovely and will do anything to make your stay pleasant. It looks to me like work is going on here all the time with new upgrades. Enjoyed our overnight stay very much.

Recently spent one night at the Poplars en route to the Gold Coast. The room we were given was very large & roomy, air-conditioned, TV, fridge & tea/coffee making facilities - all of which you would expect in an Australian Motel. I think there was a swimming pool there, but it was a bit cool for swimming. The fixtures &...

On a recent road trip through NSW the car finally died in Coonabarabran of all places. The garage sent us to Poplars where we didn't know what to expect. What we got was two of the most beautiful, generous and most hospitable hosts that we have ever met. Once they realised our trip was over they offered us an additional...

I have travelled through Coona about 14 times but never stayed in motels. This was my first stay in a motel. My buyer recommended me to this motel. A surprise, but a good tidy place, nothing too flash, rooms are a little outdated but for the price one cannot complain. Big rooms, clean, neat and tidy, most facilities are provided...

We stayed as a family of four to break up our trip from Melbourne to Brisbane. I have to agree with the reviews I read. Friendly service and very clean units, if a little dated and the hot water did take a while to heat up. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the table (we ate dinner and...
