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.

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.

We booked online for a family room (4 adults) and were very pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to interconnecting rooms upon our arrival and our room rate was even discounted, which was an added bonus. Our rooms were located on the ground level. The two rooms were very well appointed with crisp bed linen and fluffy towels, kettle, toaster, microwave,... More

Booked at Emerald Maraboon on the basis of other reviews on Trip Advisor. Found the place easily after arriving in Emerald, checked in quickly and efficiently and was directed to a large two story building. We were disappointed to be given a room on the upper level which was a bit of a hike with heavy suitcases after 3 long... More
