Clean, spacious accommodation. Good value for money however if you don't have your own transport this motel may not be suitable for you. 1k walk along a busy highway (no footpath) to the nearest bus stop and $40 taxi ride from the airport! If you do have your own vehicle then I would highly recommend it.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The motel services the busy and expanding North Rockhampton business & industrial area, and is also an ideal stopover for those guests travelling between Brisbane & Townsville or Cairns. The True Blue Motel provides a full service to our guests with meals available 7 days. There is plenty of free parking for all... More

Accommodation in Rockhampton is expensive! and I felt Tru Blue was good value for our money. Travelling as a foursome we required a 2 bedroomed unit. Our needs were well met - 2 separate bedrooms each with an ensuite, with a very large kitchen/sitting area through a door connecting them. The rooms were very large, clean and comfortable, and would... More

Hi - thanks for the review. Yes our restaurant is spartan at the moment as we are just changing the theme. It has recently been repainted and new artworks installed. We are waiting on more and also new decor to come. We are hoping to showcase the 'True Blue' theme. Exciting! More

Good 3 to 4 star accommodation. Very large parking bays undercover which easily house large trailer plus a 4x4. There is a small patio with 'dog enclosure' at the rear of most units. Friendly management. We have stayed there before and will stay again.

I would thoroughly recommend this motel if you are travelling with a dog. Behind the back units there are individually enclosed and grassed areas which are excellent for housing a dog overnight, so it is not necessary for him to sleep in the car. There is also a grassy paddock behind the motel for pet walking. It makes such a... More

Clean Hotel, Friendly Staff and a good price. It's a run of the mill motor in but it's nice enough. It's not central to town and on the far side heading towards Mackay but if your passing through and need some sleep it's good.

Staff are so helpful, the meals delicious, the room spacious - great value for money. Little niceties in the room made the stay even better. Undercover parking was a bonus and the outside seating to enjoy the afternoon sun was great.

Decided to pull in because I was tired from driving. Fabulous location, didn't have to drive through rocky to get there as it's right at the beginning.

We are glad that you had a wonderful stay at the True Blue Motor Inn. Our large circular drive is just perfect for cars & trailers to drive in with ease and out again without continuous backing up. We hope you had happy time for the rest of your trip and look forward to seeing you and the family again. More

True Blue Motel has always been a place we've stopped over en route from north to south over many years.
