Absolutely recommend this motel. Very welcoming, clean, and accomodating. Last minute overnight booking as we were travelling and very tired. The owners even assisted us to park our trailers. Most friendly people we have come across this trip.

Excellent service and attention - with a smile from Sue Nicely decorated rooms, thick towels, very clean and quiet. I was there for one week for work. A pleasure to stay and will again if I am in Innisfail.

Only a 1 night stay but wasn't arriving until after midnight and the owners had everything sorted for me after a phone call 2 days earlier. Room was spotless and the beds was comfortable. The towels were some of the best i have had and i tend to spend about 50 nights a year in hotels. It might be old... More

Just a small family-run motel. All rooms had parking at their front door - no stairs to drag luggage up. The room was the most attractive hotel/motel room I have stayed in on this holiday. We were provided with a jug of fresh milk for tea and coffee. Good air conditioner and comfortable pillows and bed. A small package of... More

A big thank you to Sue and her staff for accomodating our family in a time of need. The motel is comfortable, clean and central to all amentities (shopping complex, takeaways, fuel station, laundromat) Sue was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Thank you on behalf of Grant, Tracey and Ainsley Dowdeswell.

The best motel I have ever stayed at. Very clean and spacious rooms. The friendliest management and within walking distance to all shops and ffacilities. Free WiFi is available plus a pet friendly motel. Will definitely be staying here again when visiting Innisfail. 5 / 5 Stars

Just want to share my thoughts on the black marlin motel. It's not always easy to find somewhere to stay late in your travels, I found the black marlin and I'm so glad I did as I was welcomed with a beautiful room, clean, cozy and a comfy bed. What more could you ask for, the owners are very helpful... More

Great service, Caring staff, great clean and pretty rooms. They really looked after me, gave me great food references, and even went to extreme help to find a lost item. Close to many shops and food places.

The owners have gone to a lot of effort to make the rooms modern and clean!! The personally touches of fresh milk and Rocky Road chocolates added our experience. Top that off with great service and its a great place to stay!!
