About Budget Motels

Welcome to Budget Motels! We’re proud to offer excellent service, clean and comfortable rooms, free parking, and a warm welcome from our friendly motel owners. We take the time to get to know our visitors and understand what they’re looking for in their accommodation, which is why our guests are our best advocates!

Many of our motels offer a range of facilities to make your stay as comfortable as possible, including breakfast, swimming pools, Wi-Fi, restaurants, wheelchair access, streaming services, BBQ facilities, and some of our properties are even pet-friendly.

Established in 1978, we’re the original Australian motel chain, and our membership comprises many properties throughout Australia and Tasmania. Motels can join us under Budget Motels or one of our alternative brands, including Orbit Inns, Paragon Hotels, and Budget Motels Gold. We’re a brand for all property types!

We understand how the internet has changed the accommodation industry, which is why we’re proud to offer a way to book your accommodation that supports Australian families. When you book direct with us, you save money, help support Australian small business and keep all the proceeds right here in Australia.

At Budget Motels, we’re always changing with the times to be a leader in the industry. We developed our custom-built Channel Manager UseROSS specifically for our members to manage inventory, pricing, and policies; designed by Australian property owners for property owners. We updated UseROSS recently to provide our members with an even better experience and more functionality than ever before.

As the first Australian motel chain and still Australia’s favourite today, we can’t wait to share our hospitality with you!


We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the numerous local businesses, event organisers, government tourism sites, free-use photography sites and WikiCommons for generously allowing us to feature your images across our website. Your stunning imagery plays an instrumental role in showcasing the diverse beauty and attraction of these destinations to our visitors. Your photography has been invaluable in creating an immersive and inspiring experience, and we are truly appreciative of your support in promoting these locations.
