Clean, spacious room, friendly staff.”

Hay is the logical mid-point for a trip between Adelaide and Sydney. The Highway Inn Motel is at the end of the Great Western Highway, maybe 1km north of the "CBD", but the Bowling Club is close by for a good meal option. The Services Club is also nearby. My room was clean, spacious and quiet, which is all one really needs for a one night stopover. Staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't try the pool, as it was mid-winter!

Great place to stay!”

We needed to break our trip from a Adelaide to Canberra over Christmas and we were recommended The Highway Motor Inn. After checking all the options we booked the Family room for us and our toddler & mother. How pleasantly surprised we were at the comfortable, clean and well appointed room that awaited us! It was hot so we used the pool which was also spotlessly clean and refreshing. All in all we were very happy with our stay which was short but pleasant.
