We stayed here on our way to and back from visiting family - while we usually stay in Canberra we stopped here this time as we had our greyhound with us. We all decided that this will be our stop from now on, with or without the dog. The rooms are a great size with everything you need and quiet for being on a main road. The location is ideal for a short drive or a stroll into the main part of town for food or a park/playground. Nothing was too much bother, including swapping our room at the (literally!) last minute due to our dog being unable to walk up stairs. We were given the same room on our way back through so the dog would be familiar with it and comfortable. Even speaking to them over email before booking to ensure our large dog was welcome was easy. Bed was comfy, room was clean, self check-in a breeze. We’ll definately be back here again when we next travel through to family, with or without the pets!

Recently stayed at Golden Age Motor Inn, for my trip to Summernats, total of 4 of us. From the moment we arrived, Nicole and Sofi were more then helpful, very welcoming, was very easy check in, thought out our stay the whole team were great, nothing seemed to hard for them, as for the rooms they all have been freshened up/ renovated and nice comfortable beds, with our room freshened up daily. It is a convenient location to local pubs/shops. Golden Age definitely exceeded my expectations, and I’m already going to book my room for next year. Until we meet again. Thank you Golden Age Motor Inn.

The Golden Age Motor Inn is an excellent overnighter for travellers. They are extremely doggo friendly, our two cavoodles were very comfortable. The rooms smelled nice and were very clean and tidy. The amenities are rudimentary, but straight across the street is Zambrero's, Domino's and Hungry Jacks. A 5 min walk will get you into the pubs and clubs of Queanbeyan. The walls are a little thin, but the place feels safe and secure. Parking is not secure, but you are able to park out your front door. Overall, this was a great selection for our last minute stay.

I arrived early to the motel and was greeted by friendly staff. I was able to check in with no fuss which was great as I had my pets with me. I also loved that there was a self-check-in for after hours. The room was big and clean with lots of natural light. A double bed and couch, tv and great shower. There was a stocked kitchenette and plenty of space and plugs for laptops ect. I was very happy with the value. Parking was also plentiful allowing us to park or trailer in the main car park. Location was excellent for us passing through from interstate. We were within 600m of dominoes, zambrero , kfc, McDonald’s, red rooster, hungry jacks, chemist warehouse, Cole’s, woolies, service station, Kmart and pubs. Couldn’t have asked for more convenience. We checked out 6am, dropping the keys in the drop-box. We also received an email offering us online check out. Overall, very happy with our stay and would definitely stay again, especially travelling with pets.
