Stayed there last night. Older style motel but what a surprise. Clean and extremely comfortable. Bathroom was great and even had a spa. The owners very friendly and went out of their way to make me feel at home. Under car parking and situated off the road. Directly opposite the Maryborough Base Hospital. Highly recommend the Cara Motel and would... More

After a friendly greeting from Imre whilst checking in, I went to our parking spot to unload the dog and my belonging. Imre came over and offered food and water for... More

In Maryborough overnight and very glad we chose to stay here. Cleanliness is really important to me and I feel very happy here. There is a pool and its handy to everything. Staff were helpful and happy and welcoming. We would stay again if we come back.

We stayed for one night very briefly on our way from Cairns to Brisbane, and we got the one Cara Mia spa suite! It was a cute, cozy room with a couch and table included. The room was extremely clean, which is very high on my priorities, and Rita was lovely. Didn't use the pool, but it looked very clean... More

Booked through Qantas Holidays for one night. We arrived Christmas Day. Rita and Imre, the managers, made arrangements for our room to be available. Arrived around 1pm. Our room was named Cara Mia and it was well appointed. A double and a single bed, air conditioned, nice bathroom and toilet area, and of course was clean. The air conditioning worked... More
