We have been staying at Garden City over about 10 - 12 years and keep coming back. The current managers have kept up the clean, comfortable standard at sensible prices. We would recommend this motel to anyone looking for accommodation near the centre of Toowoomba.

We stayed 2 nights so got a seniors discount and paid $105P/Night in Room 3. Rooms 2,3 and 4 are away from the highway and down the back, so a quiet nights sleep on a comfortable bed ensued.

We stayed at the Garden City Motel in Toowoomba once previously and were not disappointed with our stay there this time either. Even though it is on a main road,the motel is still very quite. It was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Overall a great and fantastic place to stay.

This motel featured rooms that open onto a garden setting. The hosts were very nice, and the rooms were quite comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing in the garden after our day long drive. The motel was located on a quiet street and easy to get back on the highway the next day.

We arrived at the Garden City Motor Inn in Toowoomba to stay to enjoy a night with our kids who lived just around the corner. The owner asked us if we wanted an upgrade in one of their units that they were refurbishing around the corner (even nearer to our kids). Obviously we said yes and what a wonderful upgrade...
