Wanted to get away and celebrate Australia Day like the Australian country people from where the birth of Federation took place.
Went through the Trip Adviser list of motels and decided on the FEDERATION MOTOR INN.
From the time I made the phone booking with Steve a few weeks before I was impressed. Very friendly and helpful.
Finally arrived and reception with Sue was another good experience. My wife was worried about traffic noise that someone had mentioned on Trip Adviser. We were given the keys to room 7 which was next to the laundry. That was the original room we had been allocated when we booked on the phone. It is about half way down and I have to say we never heard any traffic noise at all and we did stay for three nights.
The weather over the weekend was red hot, and we used the pool each day in the afternoon. It is kept in pristine condition and was complimented with Bali type units, as per my photos. The air-conditioning was used a lot in the rooms and was very quiet and very good. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. We used the outside BBQ seating area each morning for breakfast and it was great. The laundry has free washing machine facilities and pay for the dryer. There is a clothes line behind the laundry however. Steve and Sue terrific hosts. We intend to stay there again in the near future. Australia Day long weekend was sensational, with the neighbouring towns of Rutherglen and Chiltern worth a look. I was going to do a bit of fishing but it was just too hot so the pool won out every time. There is a lot of competition for Motels in Corowa but this one wins us hands down.

Room Tip: I think all rooms would be good.

We had booked to go to Corowa for a whisky, gin (& other drinks) degustation at the Corowa Distillery Co. and could not get a room at our preferred motel. The Federation Motor Inn came up as the next best deal and very close to the distillery.

We arrived a little before 2pm and were given the key to the room, which was in the far corner of the complex. On entry we were impressed with the cleanliness and spaceiousness of the room. The king bed, the (we assume) recently renovated 'wet' areas with excellent fixtures. The shower was most impressive with a large square overhead rose and 4 side wall jet heads that can be directed as desired.
The other significant element was that the building is so well insulated that we did not require the aircon at all during our stay. The outside temperature went from 25 down to 5 overnight but we were very comfortable in the room.
Breakfast was ordered as we went out for the dinner and delivered on time, hot and as ordered. The cost of brekkie was acceptable for the conveinience.
We will stay at the Federation Motor Inn again.

Room Tip: We had the king room but I believe that the other main bed in the other suites are queen. Rooms towards the rear of the complex are quieter.

My wife and I stayed here while visiting friends in Corowa. The rooms a roomy, very clean and tidy and very comfortable. Our room ( No. 3) seemed recently refurbished as well.

Our hosts were lovely, the breakfast on time and well cooked and checkin and out was a cinch.

A true gem, country hospitality at its best!!!!

If only all motel rooms could be like this one. Our room was very large, renovated with modern decor with a extremely comfortable king bed. Two very comfortable armchairs and a small kitchenette. An air con that didn't rattle hot shower and fluffy white towels. It was a quiet area of the town, but just a minutes drive to town and restaurants. Close to the wineries. Hoping to visit again.

Looking for a place to stay in Corowa for the night while visiting family. Came across the Federation Motor Inn. Wasnt expensive and the rooms were surprisingly large and modern except for the old brown fridge. That said this motel had a very comfy bed with a thick doona and the modern bathroom has the best rainwater shower ive had - i couldve stayed in that shower all night. Overall great value and good place to stay.
