Standard motel complex very central to Mackay CBD, walk to everything is easy. Lots of restaurants close (including a great breakfast place right next door). Bathroom a little squeeze but the hosts were friendly, bed very comfy, I can't ask for any more.

Only have stayed for one night while travelling for work. Very warm welcome with home baked cookies was a lovely surprise. It was lovely to be walked to my room and shown around on arrival also. You don't get that in many places any more. Good location in the town centre and close to everything. Rooms are very comfortable and... More

Good location in the middle of Mackay CBD. Manager put us at the back where it was quieter. Home baked cookie on arrival! Friendly staff. Room was clean, recently renovated and sufficient. The bathroom is lovely and clean, but very tiny. Bed was comfortable. Overall good value for money.

The room and bathroom were exceptionally clean. The bed comfortable and toaster, kettle, microwave and cutlery were provided. Staff were friendly and helpful. The only critique I can think of is that the bathroom was pretty small. I'd definitely stay at the International Lodge Motel again!

We loved our stay here. Rooms were clean and had everything you needed. Close to the shopping centre and plenty of food options. The owner, Hunter, was more than helpful and accommodating. Would stay here again.

Exceptionally clean rooms, small, but adequate, especially for 1 person. Excellent wifi. Quiet place, yet very central. Great choice of restaurants within 5 minute walking distance of motel. Breakfast is not available at the motel, however the Quest, next door does breakfast. Not sure if all the beds are the same in other rooms, the bed in my room was... More

Excellent, helpful and friendly staff. Very small rooms and bathrooms, typical of a motor inn style of motel. Rooms were clean and quiet, with toaster, kettle, microwave oven and fridge. The only sink is in the small bathroom. Rooms have very good air conditioning and a ceiling fan. This is basic motel accommodation and they provide this type of three... More

Travelled to Mackay for a conference. This was a reasonably priced motel located right in the heart of the Mackay CBD. During the booking I was aware this was a motel and therefore pretty basic. You get a room. However I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and helpful the staff were and the quality of the room. The room was... More

I had to spend 4 nights here on a business trip. The room was comfortable and quiet. The bathroom whilst small, was adequate. Best Wi-Fi I have ever had in any hotel anywhere! Room was serviced well every day. Perhaps a box of tissues in the room would be a good idea.
