I selected this motel from the reviews online so I thought I had better contribute. Stayed for business and it was convenient, clean, friendly and quiet. I found the Cara to be great value for money and I will no doubt stay again next time I'm up.

This is a good pic for Maryborough. Its opposite the hospital. The owners are top peoples. I first stayed at this hotel in the early 90s .. the white brick was trendier then. The bathrooms have been updated and the bath tubs taken out of all but one room. Please dont book that room.. I need a bath when I... More

My wife and I were travelling back down south from staying at Cape Hillsborough near Mackay and after a long day on the road it was wonderful to turn up at Cara Motel (picked from Tripadvisor reviews and location) and be greeted in a nice friendly manner. The room was spotlessly clean, very well laid out and contained a queen... More

This great little motel was my last stop after a long drive from the Melbourne ferry. It was comfortable and spotlessly clean with a very warm welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. They also do evening meals which ironically I didn't need after always searching for motels that also fed you on the drive. Would have liked a toaster and... More

Stayed here for 4 nights during a work conference in Maryborough. Fantastic accommodation for the price we paid. Rooms were very comfortable, very clean and full of complimentary extras such as soap, shower caps, shampoo, coat hangers and microwave, free wifi. Toasters, crockery and cutlery were available at no cost on request. Beds were extremely comfortable and room heating was... More

We stayed here just for 1 night on our way up to Townsville. Staff were really friendly. Room was neat and tidy. My girlfriend loved the way the shower cap was presented, very cute! Easy to find, only down side would be it being directly opposite the hospital. Great wifi coverage and free!

Have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Cara motel in Maryborough and was very impressed by the amenities and location of the property. Just a short drive off the highway and located opposite the Hospital. Also only a couple of blocks to the centre of town.The cleanliness and amenities in the rooms was of a very high... More

Spent 3 nights in this lovely motel. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, surprisingly quiet given that it is across from the hospital and very helpful hosts. Good location and easy to get to the city and tourist sights.Great place to stay and highly recommend.

Super clean, quiet and comfortable place. Owners friendly and helpful. Have been to Maryborough a few times and we always choose to stay here. Close to hospital and to the Equestrian centre. Not too far from town centre just a short drive.

Our room was spacious and very clean. The bathroom fittings all looked very new and the decor throughout the room was pleasant. Manager was very pleasant and helpful. The only minor negative aspects were the relatively small TV, and the fact that there was no toaster, cutlery or crockery. As breakfast was available to order, this may have been understandable,...
