Stayed here overnight in what they called a upstairs $99 room....which is code for dirty. Cockroaches in the bathroom, ants all through the room even in my bed and dirty cutlery and glasses....clearly housekeeping just assumed they were clean but they were not. Restaurant was nice except you could see in the kitchen and see the chefs sniffing food and... More

I stay here on business fairly regularly and the room is comfortable enough and the service is good on Check in etc... The food in the Restaurant is OK not anything special but just OK. The Pork Belly I had was a little overcooked but the rest of the food was OK.

Booked into the room, went out for dinner at the Bowls Club, meal was average but would definitely not go back there, now back to Route 66 Emerald, the noise was unbelievable, road noise cars, trucks and than the early train, it is not sound proofed, so if you want a good night sleep would not recommend this one. Never... More

First I ordered rack of lamb that was incinerated even though I asked for medium rare. Secondly being on my own they sat me... More

We had a three night stay at this very clean and modernmotel. It had good facilities, staff so very welcoming. Kitchen well appointed, plenty of extra blankets and pillow, comfortable bed and sofa, little private patio with table and two chairs. Would highly recommend.

.I was a late arrival and didn't have a booking. Staff are welcoming and very helpful. The room was a decent size, modern and very clean. After long day driving it was great to find this place. Would recommend if visiting Emerald.

We were quite intrigued with the location of our room, tucked tightly into the corner of the property, and down a narrow path adjacent to a giant pump. We were though pleasantly surprised by the 2 bedroom apartment, with both rooms a nice size and a small lounge area included next to the strip kitchen. The hotel looks more designed... More
