We were suprised by the room at the Barrier Reef Motel. When you enter, you might think it's a workers place. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. We stayed for 1 night. The friendly staff helped us planning our next days on the road in Queensland with helpfull tips.

I come on business every 3 months and I have to say that my stay here was a pleasant surprise. Check-in was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and the water pressure (which is extremely important) was great. Dinner was fantastic and the feel of the restaurant was relaxed and friendly. (Dinner was... More

I choose this motel several times each year when in Innisfail. The Restaurant serves great meals, that are also well priced. The rooms are practical, but still very comfortable. The hosts are helpful, and very friendly. Always perfectly clean.

I was in Innisfail on business, and my organisation made the reservation I found it cheap and cheerful, with friendly staff, clean well-appointed room, quiet (despite fronting onto the highway), a reasonably-priced mini-bar and a value-for money breakfast with real free-range eggs! This one ticks all the right boxes for a budget motel.

Spent the night at the Barrier Reef Motel and it met expectations. It was clean, well lit, good shower etc. We had a meal in their restaurant which was very good, far better than one would expect from a motel restaurant. My Belly Pork was delicious my husband's lemon salt and pepper squid was equally tasty. The service was good,... More

Clean comfortable hotel with pool and onsite bar and restaurant, run by friendly owner-managers. A good choice for corporate travellers and tourists alike. Large family rooms also available. Easy access from highway and only about an hour and a half from Cairns.

When passing through Innisfail recently, I asked a local for a recommendation for a decent, comfortable night stay and I was so glad I was recommended to the Barrier Reef Motel. Parking was excellent, I drove a big rig and there is a huge central car park in the centre of the complex. The room and bed was extremely comfortable... More

I was not feeling well & was given a room anyway when I checked in quite early. I was very grateful for that & also that they told me to call them if I needed anything or did not feel well. "That is service." The hotel was $127 for the night. The room consisted of a queen & single bed,... More

We thank you for your comments and taking the time to review our motel. We were more than happy to accommodate your immediate needs at an early time of the day. We regret that there was no soap in the room as this would have been an oversight and we will need to tighten up on our room control. More

Stayed at the Barrier Reef motel at a very busy time and secured one of the last rooms available. The room was very clean but there was really nothing special to commend this motel as a stand out among the general run of the mill motels hovering around that price bracket. We paid $127 for our room - slightly more... More

I recommended this motel highly. The Manager, Amanda, was so helpful and accommodating in organising a large family group with differing needs in many rooms for an urgent stay. Nothing was too much fuss. Amazingly, the rooms are serviced daily. Great bar/restaurant on site, which was really convenient for uniting our group staying at the motel as well as entertaining...
