Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for three nights in November. Our hosts were extreme;ly friendly and gave us information on where to eat, points of interest etc. Our motel was scrupulously clean. We ate at the local pub just around the corner. Very old fashioned pub with good meals. On two nights we had a buffet. Our plan was to do some gold panning which we did for fun and with mild success.

We stayed at Ross Motels at the last minute, having decided we’d driven long enough with two small kids. It surpassed all of our expectations. Beds are very comfortable, shower good, incredibly friendly and welcoming staff and generally what motels should be. I really recommend this place. Stay here!

Small family friendly place to stay. Dated but functional with everything you need. Friendly owners with a cute friendly dog that will come and say hello.

Very short walk to the pub/restaurant next door (very handy)

Would stay again when in Ross.

a nice little motel with all the amenities, clean and fresh. And on the recommendation of our host we went to the pub for dinner. if you are in Ross on a Sunday night the buffet at the pub is a must, good old fashioned pub meal cooked to perfection and cheerful friendly staff

Friendly hosts & comfortable motel. Yes, its an older style motel but its honest & clean, clean, clean! Many upmarket places don't get this bit right! Much appreciated. Love the Ross hospitality, from the Motel owners to the people we met at the great Jam session night at the Empire Hotel. Also met Rick at the Ross Goldfields information & Heritage Centre who gave us lots of information & reasons to return. We will definitely stay here again (& bring friends). Thanks to all. (P.S. Did I say how clean it was?)

Seems brand new, so clean but all they’ve done is recently changed the window treatments. The customer service couldn’t be better. Thank you Katherine for a lovely stay.

The cleanliness, the cotton bedding, the furniture layout, the shower and toilet are perfect. A great midway stop South to North while traveling World Heritage Sights along the West Coast Highway

For the price bracket this is easily the most immaculate Motel we’ve ever stayed in. So well presented. The hosts are friendly and helpful. Next time you’re on the coast, don’t stay in Hoki, stay here!

Spotlessly clean this older style motel has been refurbished and is faultless. THANKYOU for allowing our two small dogs to stay with us. Awesome! Friendly hosts and resident doggy. Lovely walk to goldfields heritage area and lake.

Great welcome to a very well appointed and comfortable room with all the facilities you could possibly want. Literally seconds to walk to the iconic Historic Empire pub and also the Roddy Nugget Café for breakfast. Couldn’t ask for more
