Owners were very nice and the unit was quiet hence a good nights sleep. Although room was very clean it did seem a little dated compared to other motels we stay in with a comparable price. Air conditioner was noisy and in hindsight we should have as for another room because of this. Overall though would stay here again.

The room was clean, spacious, and obviously recently renovated. The air con unit however was very noisy - to the point that I was not able to leave it on during the night as it kept me awake. The only problem was there were no screens on the windows so did not feel comfortable leaving them open. Luckily it was... More

Accommodation in Mackay is so expensive so to find a room for $125 that is half descent is good. I stayed in a budget room. It is a very old hotel but the rooms have been semi renovated a while ago. The first thing I noticed when I entered the room was the musty smell so I opened the windows.... More

Shocked to see negative reviews. I found the motel very comfortable which was very close to Mackay CBD. The customer services was top quality and very accommodating. It has everything needed from foxtell to washing machines. I ordered breakfast and experienced the best scrambled eggs I've tasted in many years. Thanks guys until next time, David

I am writing this review in response to the reviews posted on this website. I am the owner of The Coral Sands Motel and always utilise tripadvisor for my personal travel advice. Having said that I believe I should be able to defend my property against some of the negative comments it has received. It is an older motel that... More

Quite an old motel but very well kept and very new looking inside the rooms. The rooms themselves were immaculate with pristine white sheets. Large bathroom and rooms were also quite spacious. Undercover parking for most vehicles. A licensed Chinese restaurant is also on the premises and we enjoyed a great meal there.

Arrived late due to flights and stayed here at short notice. Carpark was built for minis and is ridicuosly small, wouldn't like to try and park a commodore or falcon there it would be near impossible. Room is very dated and basic. Curtains don't reach from one side of window to the other so room is very bright all night,... More

We had to stay here at short notice due to road closures further north, and were given an executive room. Room was clean and tidy, but lacked any extras like a hair dryer. Bed was OK for a night. Parking is off street but very tight, with little room for opening car doors etc, so expect dents and marks on... More
