You had the choice of two restaurants and room service if you required it .Our whole family chose to stay here and I think they were all happy... More

The motel is in a quiet location a little way from the centre of Emerald. The welcome was very pleasant. We had prepaid the accommodation and, as a result in prices being lower when we arrived, we were given and upgrade to an executive room. This was a one bedroom apartment with a mice living area with separate bedroom. The... More

Just spent another night at the Maraboon Motor Inn and it's like a "Home away from home". The rooms are great, the people are very friendly and accommodating with anything you need. I only stay here when in Emerald. Look forward to another night at the Maraboon !! Thanks guys

The Emerald Maraboon Motor Inn has everything a traveller needs to keep them comfortable . Huge comfortable beds, lots of towels, wi-fi and tv and space. Having a car park immediately next to the room doesn't hurt either. The Capricorn restaurent was excellent if a little generous but as I am not a man I can not find that a... More

Overall it's a lovely property. Good shower, comfy bed. I had a twin room which suited me as a single traveller but would have been a little tight for two. I'd stay again. But it's too expensive for room service. My work budget doesn't stretch to $32 as the cheapest main. There is takeaway across the road. But that's not... More

Nothing good, nothing bad to say, its just a typical motor inn. Has that usual motor inn bathroom smell that takes over the entire room. There are quite a few motor inn's in town, if I was to come back would chose one closer in to the main area that sells alcohol.

I am sorry that this inconvenienced you and I hope my staff advised you of where you could dine and made the necessary arrangements for you... More

The rooms were clean and tidy and very well fitted out to a high standard. We had adjoining rooms to accommodate two families and the set up was very convenient. The staff were friendly and very helpful.
