Room 1. The room stank as soon as the door was opened. There was wet carpet outside the bathroom and on the bath mat. The smell of the mould had built up over days, not hours. When reported to the owners / caketakers it was claimed the room was used the previous day by a disabled person and that caused the water spillage on the carpet. Really? Oh, that implies by their own admission, they knew the carpet was wet yet, still rented the room. Disgraceful and appalling lack of professional behaviour. The owners / caretakers claimed there were no vacancies and sent a man to spray and wipe the wet soggy carpet. All this did was mask the smell and the carpet remained wet. This is not a way to rent out a room. There was no offer of a refund nor an apology. The owners / caretakers/ cleaners would have been aware of the wet areas, the mould and smell in the room. Shame on them. This is a public health issue. This was not my room. My friends stayed in the room. I hope they do not become ill.

Not a bad location. Old hotel that has had a little renovation done. Bathrooms need to be badly updated. bed is super comfortable. Right on a busy road but noise is not too bad, and I am a light sleeper. Located very close to major shopping center and takeaways.

Overnight stay near Maitland. Excellent location and accommodation. Everything you’ll need. The room was very clean. Off street parking. Great shower pressure. We’ve stayed here before and usually like to try different places but this is still our favourite.

I stayed overnight 31/3/2022 & it was a pleasure my bed Comfy , room nice , Check in & Check Out great 👍. It was nice to Meet The New Mangers Sarah & Andrew who've only been there 7 weeks doing their Upmost Best to Revive a Motel that needed some Tender Love & Care . The Cleaning Staff are Lovely & Love Their Job . I said hi to them & recieved a lovely Greeting this morning. I'm sure those who've stayed before & left disappointed . Give it another go , I'm sure you'll change your mind . Good Managers Created A Better Stay .. Thanks Again can't wait to call I again . Cheers Ray

The Molly Morgan Motor Inn is definitely not worth the price they are charging. It’s old, dirty, tired and needs a complete overhaul. The furniture hasn’t been changed in 20+ years and it’s clear to see as soon as you enter the rooms. The towels and sheets were dirty and stained. When we raised the issues with reception they weren’t interested. Their response was “they would not be dirty as they come from a laundry”. The cleaners need to be introduced to Exit Mould and the bathrooms and showers given a good scrub. There’s a build up of mould that looks like it’s been growing for a while. The “Managers” of this place are not interested in feedback. As you can see in previous reviews, responses to any negative comments are dismissive (as I expect this one will be too). The attitude we got was “The only problem here is you”. I’d probably overlook some of the issues if this place was $70-$80 a night, as you get what you pay for. But, you can do a lot better for the $150 a night they are charging. The “Managers” clearly have a lot of work to do, but I’m not convinced they’re up to the job as “there are no problems here”. Overall, I wouldn’t book the Molly Morgan Motor Inn again, they need a course in Quality Control 101.

The people who manage this place should be ashamed of themselves, they were rude and very unhappy for anyone to be staying there unless you were a tradie, they wouldn’t open the restaurant for our group which was a big group, everything seemed like a hassle, don’t stay here, the only good thing about it was the small travel ironing board in the cupboard which to get to it i had to move the bed to open the cupboard door geez.

Response from , General Manager at Molly Morgan Motor Inn
Responded 25 Jan 2022
We take pride in protecting the motel as best we can during this pandemic and you should have been informed by Val the group organiser that providing proof of vaccination upon checkin was essential for ALL guests and visitors to guests rooms. Some of your group either weren't informed by Val or chose to ignore this information so were unhappy when checking in and were asked for it. QR codes are also mandatory in NSW and we know that many of your group didn't sign in or signed out immediately after checking in. The tradies you mention do not give us any grief when checking in as they know it is for everyone's safety. We are also in a zone with 2 hospitals and a cancer clinic on our doorstep and many hospital staff stay here as do families of patients. As for the restaurant - it is mainly supported by workers but all are welcome to dine. Val was also informed that should the group wish to use the restaurant facility they would need to book as getting staff at the present time is very difficult as I am sure all business owners will tell you. Also no one asked us if we would open even when you all arrived. Had we been able to get staff organised we would happily have opened. The restaurant has never been open on weekends for the full 11 years that the owners have had the business, but could have been if a group booking had been made and special menus would have been provided for this. Your group also used the BBQ in the pool area and left a disgusting mess on the ground and on tables and DID NOT clean the BBQ down after use.

Our room was huge, clean and comfortable. The receptionist was very friendly. The location was excellent. Across from the private hospital. Around the corner from Greenhills shopping centre. The room has all that you’ll need. There is a swimming pool. I’d recommend this place.

This motel was completely overpriced. Smelt of cigatettes, mould in the bathroom, could not log into wifi & the guy at reception could politely not care less. There wasnt, pop down to reception & I will see if we can get you hooked up. No not even interest. I am sick of motels in Australia overcharging. It is no wonder no one wants to holiday here.

Stayed here just one night for concert in Hunter Valley and it was a great little unit although quite dated as you’d expect from a motel. Much better than another local establishment I’ve stayed in though and cheap as! Also, the coach stop is right outside and shopping centre next door so is perfect location for what we needed. Will definitely consider a staying here again when coming up for more concerts, for a night or two. Staff very friendly and helpful.
