I stayed here one night on business and this was my seconc time here. I stayed in one of the refurbished rooms which was just lovely. Modern decor, bathroom and gorgeous chandelier type light fitting give this room a real warmth. Bed was comfy and shower hot. The motel offers very reasonably priced room service meals, i had the Japanese... More

I am normally a bit wary about Trip Advisor reviews, but in this case they were spot on. Although the Motor Inn is right by the Bruce Highway where trucks power along all day and night, and although the layout and finishes of the rooms is kind of old fashioned, the Motor Inn is scrupulously CLEAN. Its comfortable with most... More

Cheap motels are normally just that, but this one is not just cheap, its clean and functional, has all the things you need for a one nighter. A bonus is that they serve meals, yes room service. Evening meal was plain but tasty, breakfast to the room was excellent. Just what you need when you have a business meeting then... More

This place was great, no it's not the flashiest place around, but I was after something relatively cheap & this place popped up in my search. Great spot & fairly quiet considering it's on the main road. Very clean inside the room, comfy bed & hot shower, what more do you need?! I'll stay here again next time I need... More

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
