Close to Showgrounds and city

Pros: Location,friendly staff
Cons: New and larger aircon unit,replace noisy fan,replace warped chipboard bench top, regrout shower tiles,replace two tiles in the toilet.
Location: It was close to the town and satisfactory for our visit to the theatre.
Double bed provided in room at a price advertised as for a queen sized bed. Grout on tiles in the shower needed cleaning. Tiles missing in toilet. Old noisy aircon and even noisier fan drowned out the highway noise and took ages to cool down the room. The bed was comfortable. When I logged into wotif.com it listed many motels in the area as being fully booked. When driving around the town we found that they actually had vacancies

Very affordable.

Pros: Although the motel is one of the older motels in Ayr, the current staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are improving the facilities.
Cons: I had no complaints with the accomodation. Although it is a basic motel it offers good value.
Location: Easy access to the highway but far enough to be quiet at night

Welcoming and Friendly Motel.

We stayed 2 nights at Ayr Max with our family. The room was basic but clean and comfortable . The pool was lovely and great for the kids. The highlight of our stay was definitely the friendly and very helpful couple managing the motel.

Great for a quick stopover.

Pros: Clean and comfortable.
Cons: Advertised that they had a bbq area so we bought some steak for dinner but bbq was a rusty mess and had no gas.
Location: Right on the highway, close to some shops.
We were travelling in a camper, it was getting late and we decided to stay in a motel. This place looked pretty ordinary but turned out to be very clean comfortable. The managers were terrific and nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you for your review and your nice comments. So sorry about the BBQ, if you had only told us we could have given you a Webber Q to use, we don't leave it out as it is easy to get stolen. I will put a notice up which should be of use to future guests.

Budget Motel in name only

For a budget price .. This motel was a huge surprise.. Large comfy bed with colourful non-generic comforter giving a pleasing homely feel.. Add to that.. Microwave...Free wifi, complimentary DVD with large library to choose from, pool, evening meal delivered to your room if needed... I found it great value for money!

Motel was very run down room was dirty. Room was full of cobwebs and spiders there were cockroaches in the bathroom. The ceiling fan had 3 inches of dust on it there were no lights (blown) in the toilet and the bathroom when we took the bed covers off it was full of dead moths and spiders. The smoke detector was half missing (broken) assumed it was not working and not legal the pool was green and murky. On the up side the bed was comfy and the manager did clean the fan when we complained. I really want a refund if we had not paid up front through wotif I would have turned around and left.
