Not sure how I have missed this one for so long. I am a regular visitor to Emerald and The Route 66 leaves the rest in the shade. Clean modern well appointed rooms, internet that actually works, delicious meals, close to town. And lets not forget the friendly welcome with,"If you need anything don't hesitate to ask". I'll be back... More

We stayed in an apartment with a well-equipped kitchen, two airconditioned bedrooms, bathroom, and a good sized lounge room. Having our own kitchen was great - while the motel has a nice restaurant, it was closed for Christmas at the time we visited, so being able to cook our own dinner was great. We had such a comfortable stay; the... More

This motel is great value for money. Room was clean and spacious as usual, this is the second time we have stayed here. I think last time I gave in 5 stars, just a couple of things this time disappointed us a tad. The air con did not cool the room down - even after closing the bathroom door the... More

The Route 66 Motor Inn offers clean, quite spacious, motel rooms with all necessary amenities. The bathroom is decently sized and also cleaned to high standards. However, we were told when we arrived that breakfast would be available "all morning" - this turned out to be until 8 am, so when we arrived at 8:20, no brekkie was to be... More

I stayed at this motel whilst visiting friends in the Emerald area, in fact they booked the motel for me. It was great, it is fairly new and was very clean and modern. The rooms were well set out with both a separate working and eating tables a very decent kitchenette (with larger fridge). The modern split system air conditioning... More

We stayed here for one night and the room is nice and modern. All the space you could need and well located jut off the main roads. We had dinner at the restaurant that night and it was fantastic. Best pork belly I have had in a very long time! The only downside was the air conditioning. The unit is... More

After being forced to stay in Emerald Qld, due to car problems, we stayed at Route 66. Pat, the manager, couldn't have been more helpful. We had no change of clothes or toiletries with us, but Pat advised us that shampoo etc was in the room and a shopping centre just over the railway line solved the rest. Dinner in... More

Stayed here before on business, so I talked it up to a client as his first choice hotel was unavailable. Stayed only one night and after the dramas we experienced, was happy it was only one night. Room was nicely presented, clean and equipped with a kitchenette. There was no hot water when showered the night I checked in, nor,... More

Pat is the manager and she does whatever is needed to make your stay enjoyable, the rooms are fresh and clean, the restaurant and bar are the best in town, rooms are air conditioned and very comfortable, stay here if visiting Emerald QLD

My wife and I stayed for three nights. Our room had everything you could possibly want on holiday. Whoever designed the motel deseves the highest praise. The room was quiet, comfortable, filled with drawer space, the kitchen facilities were great, we had a comfortable bed and lounge chairs. What impressed us was the attention to detail. The manager makes everything... More
