I stayed here for one night whilst working in Mackay. The room décor was quite dated, but otherwise ok. Clean, comfortable and great value (I paid $80 for one night) Free wifi worked well in the room, staff were friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable. Room has air conditioning and TV with a selection of Foxtel channels as well as... More

Have stayed here a few times over the years and on this stay I hadn't planned on it so saw a vacancy sign and checked in - at $70 a night is a bargain. My only disappointment was that they did not clean the room and came back from work to unmade bed and damp towels. But for $70 I... More

Pool also needed cleaning too - owners were... More

This is a cheap and convenient motel for me on this strip. It has seen better days but has all I need and is around the corner from the business I visit there. Service and everything is very stripped back but I found the beds ok and while a bit worn in places it was clean. Number 15 had a... More

There are so many motels as you drive into Mackay it was hard to know which one to pick. We tried a couple before deciding on the Pioneer Villa Motel. The others were much more expensive and although they had signs advertising restaurants, there was no food available as they were closed for the Christmas season. I would have thought... More

Stopped at the Pioneer on the way to Townsville, arrived at 5pm, first thing the kids did was jump in the pool with the managements children who were very friendly, the management were really nice. The room itself was dated from the 70/80s but was clean and tidy, sheets and towels were clean and fresh. Good place for a stop... More

First room we were given had a leaking toilet. The smell was terrible, only we did not notice when we first arrived. Was only when we got back from dinner that the worst was noticed. Also there were no power points near the bedheads! We both have CPAP machines and require power outlets. Staff was helpful but didn't really know... More

Very friendly staff. Centrally located to everything. Close to COU. Stayed here twice so far and has been great both times. Only thing is it can be hard to get out of the driveway in the mornings and get back in late afternoon due to traffic. They do have a restaurant but I never went there. KFC is right across... More

We arrived early and the staff advised us on the time to have the room made up. Very clean and well presented, and the bed was so comfortable!! So tired after emotional day so was looking forward to a quiet night in. Decided to have dinner at the motel restaurant- beautiful. The food was delicious. So nice that we had... More
