Lovely clean, restful and well maintained. Staff very helpful, happy and friendly. Very quiet place so able to get a good night sleep as windows double glazed and beds very comfortable. Will definitely stay there again and prices value for money

For $120 you get a very clean room.. Very friendly service.. Just what you need for 1 night stay before flying home.. Beds were the best on this trip.. Only negative comment is the location near a very big road. If you are a light sleeper go somewhere else or get a room fare away from the road.

Pardon? No, it doesn't stink - of the overly intense faux-fragrant bloody cleaners that just about every damn place in Queensland seems to use to drown out the uselessness of their cleaning and somehow hope will cover their lack of managerial and housekeeping ability. Actually I'm writing this 3 months after staying there and meant to do sooner, but it... More

Very friendly and helpful staff - best of all during our 14-days trip in Queensland, spacious rooms are spottlesly clean, good price, free wi-fi internet. Our stay here was very very pleasant. Stay here, you will not regret!

We got into Mackay in heavy rain and wind and decided not to set up the caravan we were towing because it was just too hard in the weather. The Mackay Motor Inn was the first accommodation we stopped at to check for vacancy, and we were fortunate enough to get a room. They also had parking for trailers, etc.... More

For budget accommodation you couldn't really ask for more. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We were only overnighting so decided to try the home cooked meals. Wish we hadn't. We got a mixed bag. The rib and eggs was great, the calamari and salad very disappointing for the price (5 small calamari didn't fill up my hungry son).... More

I recently spent 5 nights at the Mackay Motor Inn. While it is a basic Australian motel the rooms are well equipped, very clean very comfortable and value for money in a town where accommodation is generally overpriced . I had absolutely no issue with noise from the highway or the other guests. There is a good selection of pay... More

Basic, clean, comfortable room and a comfortable bed. The staff are polite and helpful. It's not 5 star, but the price makes it excellent value for the overnight traveler. Thanks for a great stay :) Trip Adviser mobile app, why do you insist on making a review 'at least 200 characters'? I think I've summed up my stay in fewer... More

Mackay Motor Inn is the first of many motels on the main road into Mackay. Most have the same 'aged' look about them (from the outside). Check in was simple, quick & the lady was really friendly. The room was a surprise. Everything was very clean & new'ish' looking. Our queen size bed was very comfortable & the kids had... More
