5 Reasons Motel Accommodation is Great for a Trip Across Australia

If you are planning a trip across Australia, you will need to book accommodation. Booking into a motel can offer many benefits to people who are travelling around the country. Below is a guide to 5 benefits of using a motel.

Motels are great if you want to make a last-minute reservation

No matter how well you plan your trip, you may find that your plans change. It could be that you decide to change your route and head in a different direction, or you may decide to stay longer in one location than you initially intended. If you attempt to make last-minute reservations with a hotel, you may find it difficult to secure a room. However, because motels are used to dealing with people who are travelling, they are much more likely to be able to provide you with a bed for the night at very short notice.

Motels are super secure

While motels may have a spooky reputation, mostly thanks to the Bates Motel in the classic Hitchcock movie Psycho, in reality, motels are a really safe place to stay. This is thanks to the 24-hour security which is provided by staff who ensure that the rooms and the car park are secure.

Motels can save you money

When undertaking a trip across Australia, it is likely you will need to stay away from home for an extended period of time. If you are planning to stay in hotels, you could soon see the potential bill for accommodation rising rapidly. While motels may not provide all of the amenities offered by a hotel, they have everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay at a very affordable price.

Motels are great for group travel

If you are travelling as part of a group, booking into a motel could be the ideal option for you and your friends or family. A motel will often allow you to reserve rooms which are next to each other which means that you can keep the group together rather than being on different floors in a hotel. If you are travelling with kids, the small size of a motel compared to a hotel will make it easy to keep an eye on them when they are not in the room. 

Motels are staffed by a dedicated team

While hotels may offer a greater selection of amenities, they can sometimes leave guest feeling overlooked. This is often because the ratio of staff to customers means there are very few staff members compared to the number of guests. Because motels tend to be smaller operations, the ratio between staff and guest is much more balanced, which means you can be sure to get the dedicated service you deserve.

About Me

Moe's Motel Blog My name is Moe and if there is one thing that I really like, it is staying overnight in a motel. When I was a kid, my parents would take me on long drives across the country. Every night we would stop off at a motel and book a room for the night. Now that I am an adult, I still like to stay in motels. I must have stayed in hundreds of motels over the years and from speaking to motel staff, I have learnt lots of cool things about finding the best rooms for the best prices. Enjoy!
