My partner and I stayed here for one night as we needed a stop over after a drive from Cairns to Gladstone. I found this place as it was relatively cheap off bookings.com. The room was very outdated and uncomfortable. The bathroom was filthy and had someone else's hair on the wall. The shower was small as well. The walls... More

We needed to stay somewhere for 1 night on our way to Cairns and arrived very late. They were very accommodating and pleasant at the front desk - she gave us lots of tips on things to do and recommended tours in Airlie Beach. The room itself was tiny but pretty clean. The one downfall of our room was that... More

The promotional photos you see is the manager's accommodation with the motel units at the rear. The car parking area (from where the units are entered) is uninspiring, bordering on scruffy, but the units whilst basic are clean and adequate. Our studio unit had a double and single bed, TV, tea/coffee making facilities. microwave and toaster. Somewhat oddly the appliances,... More

Needed a basic room for one night on a budget. This place was perfect. Room was clean, simple and perfect for what I required. Owners were friendly and had even left my room unlocked as they were out when I turned up. Would definitely stay again.

No frills but clean and comfortable. After a long trip and having a early start the next morning this was just the sort of basic accommodation i was looking for..But the Road noise kept me awake during the night and others next door talking til 3 am (Thin Walls ) Didnt help.

Good rate for over nite. But is about all that you could rate as good, bed to hard, place is run down and needs urgent work to get it back to some thing near reasonable. Would not stay here or even visit Mackay again

The room was fairly clean but don't look too close. Nothing flash. A old style motel that needs some TLC. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom small. The louvre window at the back had no insect screen so it couldn't be opened. Don't expect a lot and you won't be disappointed.

Room filthy. Not good. Had to wear shoes inside to keep my feet clean. Thongs in the shower. Might be so called budget but it should still have cleanliness. Central to where we wanted to go but would have paid the extra money and 5 mins drive for cleanliness.

Good budget value, but the whole place is old & run down inside & out, but are very clean & tide as can be. Yes we had a good nights sleep, but would have enjoyed a bit more comfort & less road noise.
