Before we set out for Maryborough, I scanned Trip Advisor's reviews and was pleasantly surprised to read that reviewers who had gone there before we did, had rated it as the cleanest motel they had seen, and all commented favorably on the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners. How right they were! We found it to be the cleanest accommodation... More

We can't fault the Cara Motel, welcoming and friendly service, clean and well layout rooms and the beds were comfortable. We were only there overnight, but would not hesitate recommending it to anyone that is passing through Maryborough.

Thank you so much for being so flexable and allowing us to come in so late on Sunday night and booking an extra night stay. Our kids came and hung out with us and all said how much they loved the place too and how they will be recommending it. We are from Brisbane but often visit family here so... More

From the time we arrived we were made feel extremely welcome by Rita. We booked 2 rooms and they were both absolutely immaculate, very clean and fresh, with everything in excellent working order. It was a quiet location and we got a very good nights sleep. The price was very reasonable when compared with other locations. This motel was close... More

Lovely place to stay at. We were welcomed with a smiling face and a small pot of milk for coffee or tea (great little touch). The place was clean, everything worked well and it was a very well kept place compared to some of the other places we had heard about in Maryborough. Quite a far walk from the central... More

The Cara motel was an excellent spot to stop for the night after a long day of travelling. Close to nice places to eat. Clean and nicely appointed rooms with plenty of room for a cot. Friendly staff, will stop here again.

The owners of this motel will go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your stay. The rooms are very neat & tidy & the food is home cooked & good value for money. I would recommend this Motel to anybody wishing to stay in the Maryborough area.

I arrived very late due to rental car issues and felt ashamed for being so late, but Imre welcomed me and made me feel right at ease. He also provided me useful info about Maryborough which I happily made use of the next day. Cleanest motel I EVER stayed at! And friendliest owners/staff I have ever seen at any accomodation.

Just stayed here one night while driving up the coast. Stayed here once before and had great service and nice refurbished rooms. Very clean - bathrooms are nice and new. Have only dealt with Aimee and he is always helpful and pleasant to deal with. Definitely recommend as the best place to stay in the area!
