We had a weekend stay at this motel, which was close to town. The room was a bit small with a double bed that was comfortable but only had one small pillow. The furniture was very outdated and in fact the whole room could had used some new paint. The TV was too small for the room and the bathroom... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend on the way down the Queensland coast. It was a pleasant stay the owner was lovely and the room was a standard motor inn style, everything you need; nothing you don't. Bazaarly the room had a stale odor when we first entered but we got that cleared out quickly. If you're on a budget... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend when he was in town on work. It was nice and easy to find, and had a Red Rooster across the road (although we didn't use it). We arrived quite late but we just gave them a call when we arrived and they came and met us. The lady at reception seemed friendly on arrival... More

Coming from the bush I found this Motel on the way to Hervey Bay. Yes it is on the main road, but being close to so many fast food outlets, and not far to Station Square Shopping Centre. I did the tourist bit....saw the Mary Poppins Statue, the Markets they have on Thursday, looked at the old heritage homes, etc... More

Thank you to Mark and Kim for such caring hospitality during our all-too-brief stay at this excellent Motel in Maryborough, Queensland. We are part of a team of runners running around Australia and really needed a good night's sleep after our hard 30km run. Excellent breakfast, we can highly recommend the eggs!

The bright lights of Maryborough were fluoro.. startling so. I can't remember the last time I was a room with so much fluorescent lighting. I especially liked the biggest one being over the bed for a reading light. I could count every pore in my skin when I looked in the mirror. What can I say it reminded me of... More

Stayed for one night, check in was quick but not particularly friendly. Room in need of renovation, very old but clean. Quite noisy as on main road and adjacent side street parking area for large trucks. Absolutely basic room

The room decor and fittings were all old and in need of repair. Bad smell in room, old and noisy air conditioner and peeling paint and mould in bathroon. This motel was very over priced considering its condition. We certainly expect better conditions than this. Also WIFI at $7.50 per hour!!!!
