From the moment that I arrived at the Motel I felt a very warm welcome. The room was exceptionally clean, little extra's in the room made you feel a bit special. I am quite picky when it comes to staying away from home, and this ticked every box for comfort, cleanliness and lovely hosts in Rita & Imre who will... More

This motel suited us for our purpose of a quick Business trip. Easy to find and close to all amenities. We found that the room was very clean, neat and tidy our bed would have been one of the best we have slept in as we have travelled quiet a bit. We would recommend this motel to any traveller.

After many years of staying in other ''budget'' hotels in Maryborough, we are stunned by the quality of this little gem. Great friendly management with a sense of humour, comfortable beds, and an excellent spotless ensuite with good water pressure. The motel is exceptionally clean in it's own right, but the lovely blue and white paint scheme really sets it... More

Wonderful place to stay. One of the cleanest motel/ hotels I have ever stayed in, they could show some 5 star hotels how to treat a customer. Nothing was to much trouble for the hosts. Comfortable beds and wonderful warm shower. Heaps of space to spread yourself out. Really great food and the wi fi was free what more could... More

If you need to stay in Maryborough this is the place to stay. Very clean, very affordable, very central and very friendly. Also free WiFi available so that's a plus. The only downer I have is I tried to book in for the following weekend but it is all book out.

Great value, very hospitable hosts, beautifully clean and well appointed motel rooms. Easy carpark access outside the room. Genuinely very little wrong with staying at Cara Motel. Free WiFi was a great bonus. Didn't use the pool.

Heading north via Shepparton, Tumut, Sydney, Woolgoolga, Brisbane - and the Cara was absolutely the best and cleanest we have stayed at. The hostess was most gracious and it was important to her that guests found the place as we did. I have a wheelchair and the access was excellent, Parking outside our door was easy. A quiet clean place... More

This motel was easy to find and one of the cleanest I have ever stayed at. Had a great night's sleep. Would be excellent for anyone who had a relative staying at the Maryborough Hospital. Hosts were friendly. Would stay there again. Good value.
