The owner of the motel was working the night I stayed there giving the usual manager time off. He went out of his way to be welcoming and friendly. My drive was taking me longer than anticipated due to construction on the "highway" (very different than a highway in the US). I called to update him and to make sure... More

Good central location, spotlessly clean and comfortable room and a great price! Only downside was the noise of the ferals clearing out from the pubs and clubs all night, but we wanted a central location so I guess it was to be expected on a Saturday night in downtown Mackay!

My husband and I stayed here on Thursday 3 July. We were very impressed at how comfortable and clean the motel was. After having just finished a holiday in Airlie Beach that finished with a 2 day sailing adventure what we needed the most was an excellent shower and a comfortable bed. I can honestly say that this motel had... More

I have stayed at the International Lodge Motel twice when travelling for work and have found it to be fantastic both times. It is neat and clean, the beds are comfortable and all aspects of the stay were great. The homemade biscuits are awesome! The service from the managers was personal and warm. I will definitely stay here again if... More

I choose to stay at International Lodge Motel each time I travel to Mackay for work. I find that it is nicely renovated and extremely clean. The service from Michael & Petra is exceptional, the breaky is great and the home baked cookies on arrival is just such a nice little extra touch. This motel is so central to Mackay... More

This is my second visit to this motel. Returned as this motel is very central. Walking distance to shops and a large variety of restaurants. Park the car and leave it! I was on a business trip with two other women so we had a room with a queen bed and single bed. It was crowded so you need to... More

We live a few hours out of Mackay and regularly stay overnight in our time off; after staying here, we will surely be returning! Location is perfect, with a great Italian restaurant just around the corner, as well as being centrally located to anything you could possibly need in Mackay. The managing couple are the friendliest, most welcoming couple -... More

I would highly recommend this hotel, its clean, beds, linen and pillows are very comfortable and clean. Big TV's, good parking in front of you room and no height restrictions. The fella that owns it and works in reception can't do enough to make your stay a good one. I travel a hell of a lot for caravan shows all... More

We stopped here on a long motorcycle ride back from Cairns to Melbourne, and I can confidently say I have never experienced a welcome quite like it. Not every hotel is necessarily pleased to see riders arrive but the owners simply could not have been more friendly or happy to see us. The room was basic but scrupulously clean, we... More

We used Mackay as a stopover on the way up north. What a pleasant stay it was with Michael and Petra being excellent hosts and doing everything possible to make our overnight stay a pleasant one. They went out of their way to find out what is open in Mackay on the easter Friday even supplying us with freshly baked... More
