At entry we are unable to reverse our cars in car parks in front of our own room so it is hard to check in and take your things out of the car. Then we are also told how to park, we aren't dumb and can read the sign of not to reverse park, however the car next to us...

Not a bad budget hotel. Built some time back but all freshly painted and refurbished. Also a good foxtell movie selection. I am unsure if free WIFI is offered they offer rooms in the 80 dollar range. Close to the hospital so may be ideal for people visiting patients.

Hi Steve, Thank you for reviewing our Motel. We do offer free wifi and have been told that the signal is very strong, so that is good. We like to keep our tariff at an affordable rate. We are the closest Motel to the Hospital so we do have a lot of guests stay that are visiting friends and family....

Good and , clean, great position, lots of it seemed renewed but at least 20 plus years old. Beautiful garden of roses, lovely owner, one of the best motels I have used. Excellent price. close to Echuca hospital. Across the road to a nice fish shop, and near a heated council swimming pool.

Hello Aileen, Thank you very much for your lovely review. We too think we are in a great location being so close to the Hospital, heated pool, and the very popular Top of the Town fish & chip shop. And yes, the roses are looking beautiful at this time of the year. Thanks again. Kind Regards, Debbie & Chris

Checked into this motel for an overnight stay and found it to be clean and tidy. This establishment is definitely dated with fittings but this can be overlooked as price is very affordable. Walls a bit thin and car parking a bit tight but owners were very friendly and helpful.

We rocked into Echuca to have a look at 4pm, but with no real intention to stay. Once we realised there was much to enjoy about this town we looked for accommodation. This was the first place we enquired about and decided to give it a try. So glad we did. While it is basic, that's what we were after....

I travel SA extensively. This place is very clean, relaxing, comfortable and well presented. One of the best places I've ever stayed in this price range. When I head to Berri the accommodation choice is easy.

Had to stay in Echuca unexpectedly and this place was great. Greeted by a friendly and kind lady called Deb. Rooms are clean and warm, bed very comfortable, plenty of tea and coffee after a long drive. Breakfast, prices are excellent with a full range on the menu. If you are on a budget, I highly recommend this hotel.

When I arrived at the Big River Motel, I was greeted by a lovely receptionist who made me feel most welcome. I was informed about good places to eat in town and the town's attractions.
