I stayed here overnight on business and was given one of the recently refurbished rooms. The decor was modern and clean with a small kitchenette and microwave. The bed was comfortable and the room service meal was tasty and welcomed after a long drive. Would stay here again.

We paid a little extra for a 'newly renovated' room (Room 6). It was clean.The beds were very comfortable. The supplies all of good quality and adequate. The staff friendly. However, the renovations appeared to have been done by a handyman, not a tradesman and as a result, we had problems locking the entry door and the bathroom door was... More

We stayed in Mackay for 3 nights at the end of November and are so glad we chose Mackay Motor Inn for our accommodation. Friendly and helpful staff are onsite and the rooms are clean, spacious and well appointed with tea and coffee making facilities, biscuits and some milk to get you started. The bed and pillows were very comfy... More

After travelling nearly 13 hours to get as far as we can on the second day, we got as far as Rockhampton and we thought lets get to Mackay as it would be far to our final destination. So after traveling another 4 hours we arrived in Mackay around 8:30pm. We were looking for a motel around that time and... More

We had to stay in Mackay because our baby was early, we stayed for a week at this property and couldn't fault it. A cheap motel that's clean and comes with Free great customer service. Not modern at all, but while on a budget good value. You do have the option of staying at the Red Cross accommodation while a... More

Don't be put off by the exterior. This motel provides a more than adequate place to stay for the night and the manager/owner is so helpful and accommodating. Everything is clean and tidy. Recommended.

Very clean and comfortable. Stayed with a family of four for $120, so price was excellent. Light amount of road noise, but imagine all of the motels along the Nebo road strip have some of this. Excellent customer service at reception, very pleasant.

In a nutshell, 3.5 stars is top end for this motel. It's old, the water pressure is low and the shampoo low rent. But you know what... the owners are great, the place immaculately clean, the bed comfy, the pillow just right for me, there was plenty of coffee, some bickies, a decent TV, Austar and a great Air Conditioner....
