Having suffered some of the older, basic motels in Gympie over the years, it was refreshing to find the new, clean, well appointed Mary River Motor Inn. From the friendly greetings on arrival & at departure to the excellent king sized bed with quality lined, large screen TV, etc, the experience was great & we would recommend it highly.

I highly recommend this establishment. We were a group booking for a function and at every point in time, nothing was too much trouble for Linda an the staff. Linda is an exceptionally energetic person, cheeky and great to work with. The rooms are comfortable, very clean and if I have any negatives it would be the occasional loud truck... More

Stayed at the Mary River Motor Inn working on news coverage of the impending 2015 floods. Great management... very welcoming... would have liked to stay longer. My colleague and I both ate the grilled salmon in the restaurant for dinner... TO. DIE. FOR. Even though this place is on the highway, I heard no traffic during the night. Rooms were... More

The lovely Linda is the secret to this establishments success, from her initial happy greeting to any issues during your stay, she is bright and bubbly. My room was spacious, clean, modern and comfortable. I stayed for 2 nights and ate in their dining room both evenings and the meals and service were very good. There is a swimming pool... More

We were travelling from Fraser Island to Brisbane only to find out that the Bruce Highway A1 was closed due to flooding at Gimpie. A local couple recommended the Mary River Motor Inn and a local city employee guided to the inn in his truck. We got the last room which had just been vacated in the inn and the... More

I use this motel whenever I travel from Central QLD to Brisbane. Usually I ring up to book a room and every time the lovely Linda takes my call and finds me a room. I have become a regular...new nice clean rooms, spacious, and functional. Plenty of parking spaces, close to take aways and a great restuarant onsite.

My wife and I escaped Brisbane during the G20 to do some genealogy research at the Gympie cemetery (I know - not really a romantic getaway). We didn't book accommodation as we wanted to play it by ear. We did a quick search on Tripadvisor and decided to check out this place. I travel a lot for work throughout Queensland... More

Rooms were a good size and very clean. Considering how close they are to the highway it was very quiet. There is ample parking for both cars and larger vehicles. If you are tall you will find the showers difficult as they are quite low. Beds were very comfortable.
