The beds were very comfortable, the shower as hot and the place was clean. Dinner for the 3 of us in the adjoining Thai restaurant cost... More

Rusty's has been around for years. In fact, my family stayed there when we moved to Gladstone in the mid 1970s. It used to be called The Rusty Anchor, but has had a few make-overs over the years and is now a reasonably priced, clean little motel in the style of the old-fashioned highway motels. The restaurant was closed for... More

As we were driving through the town..I spotted the... More

A basic motel that has been recently refurbished. The room air conditioning was a old manually operated machine. While it did the job adequately it was very noise. The restaurant however more than makes up for this. First class food! We both had seafood which was some of the best we've eaten. Recommended.

It's unfortunate that due to the mining/industry boom that motels are allowed to charge obscene prices! We visited for a family occasion and chose Rusty's due to it close location to town. The motel is a older style motel located close to shops etc. Yes it has everything you need to sleep but under normal circumstances you would pay around... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback in relation to our motel and wish to confirm the following: 1. Our nightly rate is very much in the value for money category in the Gladstone market and in one of the town's most central locations. Gladstone is an extremely tight market for acommodation due to the massive expansion of... More

Our sporting team had a recent trip to Gladstone and stayed at Rusty's. The staff were extremely welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay as hassle free as possible. While the rooms were not massive, we had everything we required for a good nights sleep. The pool was also excellent to for us to unwind after... More
