Stayed one night as we passed through. It was one of the nicest country motels we have stayed in for a long time. Motel is off the highway and quiet. Our room was spacious, light and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, sheets crisp and great pillows. There is an adjacent restaurant (not the tavern) where we had a very... More

I stayed at the hotel for four nights last week. The staff are friendly and the room was nice and tidy when I returned each day. Dinner, Breakfast and room service from the Capricornian were very convenient.

We stayed overnight at The Maraboon motel. We found the place quiet and comfortable, the room was clean and tidy and though an older motel it has not been neglected. It is in walking distance of a great restaurant ( The Capricornian) and the Maraboon tavern. The movie cinema is across the street. Enjoyed the stay. Lee and Ian.

I was pleasantly surprised to find very clean, well kept accommodation like this in Emerald. Room was a credit to the cleaner, bed very comfortable and everything necessary for an overnight business stay. Bathroom whilst a little dated was clean and shower great. Had dinner at the restaurant, excellent menu with lots of choice and efficient friendly service. Happy staff... More

Good location in town, neat and tidy, nice clean room and friendly staff pretty well sums it up. We only stayed the one night but were more than happy with our choice here. We'd be back again the next time we have cause to visit.

I stay at the Maraboon regularly on work trips, the staff on check in are always happy and on the ball. Rooms are always clean and comfortable with plenty of room. The attached tavern is excellent for beautiful meals with handy charge back to your room for check out convenience. I have stayed at a few other venues in Emerald... More
