A honest motor lodge, not swanky and a little dated, but offering good sized clean rooms, nice beds, friendly welcome and easy walk to the centre of Mackay. Close to the river at the end of Macallister St. Good Italian restaurant 5 minutes walk away to the right, just turn left at the side of the ice cream place. Decent... More

Americans traveling from Cairns to Brisbane, we were unsure what kind of motels we would encounter along the way. Finding the Mid City Motor Inn was a true blessing. The owners/operators were extremely friendly and very patient with us. They indicated sights along the way that we should see, and even highlighted the route for us on our map. Their... More

Arrived to check in and was told we had been allocated an upstairs room, but felt on seeing us a ground floor room would be more suitable, which was exactly the case and very much appreciated. Older property with generous sized, clean, comfortable, well appointed room, with a back door opening onto a grassed courtyard. Updated clean bathroom. Even for... More

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.
