Great for 1 night on our way south. Big rooms with comfy beds. Shower was small but with good water pressure, The bathroom was a good size although a little rough around the edges. Waking up in the morning to the view from our room was splendid as the river was at high tide. Walking distance to shops, cafes, restaurants... More

We had a 1 night stay on our way to Airlie Beach. We had never been to Mackay before and found the Motor Inn a great location to check out just a little bit of Mackay. Great proximity to the lagoon, just a 5 minute walk. The lagoon is massive and something for all the family. The Motor Inn is... More

This is the second time we've stayed here, and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Mackay. The managers are very friendly and helpful, the rooms spacious and clean, and the fantastic quiet, breezy, leafy location by the river is so much more pleasant than motels in the crowded motel strip in Mackay. The Riverwalk is terrific for walking and biking, and... More

Close to Shopping Centre and cinema, scenic walking track/boardwalk along riverside at back of Hotel, excellent meals, most helpful and courteous owners who went out of their way to assist us with some urgent admin business plus free Wi-Fi connection.

Or probably a bit better than ok - some things good, others a little bit lack-lustre. I was mulling over whether or not to try a different place around the road as another choice I had lined up was booked out quite early in the game, but the other choice did seem a bit close to the main arterial route...

The room was large. The location is excellent. That's the positive stuff. The bathroom was very old and the shower door didn't shut properly. The air conditioning didn't work very well. There was a smell about the room, hard to say what it was, like a cheap over perfumed cleaning product. It had permeated through the glasses & cups and... More

We stayed at this motel on our way back from Magnetic Island. The motel was in an excellent position, close to the city centre but situated at the end of a quiet cul de sac. The rooms were well equipped with plates, cutlery, microwave, toaster, kettle, tea, coffee, biscuits etc. A comfortable king size bed ensured a good nights sleep.... More
