Writing this as I sit in our family room. Service is fantastic - Geoff is polite, helpful and well spoken. Accommodated our needs at the last minute with no problem. Family room is large - no bath for young children but you can make do for one night. Clean, and tv in both rooms. Haven't heard any traffic noise so... More

Room was clean and very comfortable. Better than rating. Only downside was road noise in room 2 but so tired and grateful was... More

I am currently in Room 1 at the Childers Gateway Motel, right next door to Banjo_BlondNomad's infamous Room 2! So I am about 46 metres from the Bruce Highway instead of 50 metres, can I hear traffic noise......yes, but we're ON the Bruce Highway, not staying at the Park Hyatt. The room does not smell like a toilet, the deodoriser... More

My husband and I went up to see family. We only stayed overnight and definitely wished we had have stayed longer. The room was great. Had everything we needed. It had a very nice family vibe and felt very clean. We will be up in the next few months and will be returning to this motel.

I stayed at this motel out of desperation - I had a migraine and was too ill to continue driving to the next pet friendly motel 60kms further down the highway...IN HINDSIGHT THIS WAS A MISTAKE! With no sleep I felt sicker leaving the motel than when I arrived. This is my edited review; I removed my original review after... More

We want to start by saying that we cannot believe we have received this review from someone who was in “DESPERATE” need of help and was provided that help graciously. Geoff did call this guest after the initial review on TripAdvisor as we were concerned that she had not stated all the facts about her stay and as a general... More

Stayed at this motel again on our road trip up north. Had a family room this time. Plenty of room. Clean and comfortable. Had the same room on our return trip back home. Ordered the mega breakfast. Yum. Good value for money. New people have taken over. Very friendly and helpful. We will stay again next time in area.

After getting east directions over the phone when booking we easily located the motel (at the southern end of town) we received a very friendly greeting at reception and went to our room. It was quite large and very clean and tidy. After driving a full day we went straight to the pool which was very well kept and spent... More

We stayed at the Childers Gateway Motor Inn as a stop over on the drive from Mackay to Brisbane. We have stayed here before and found the rooms to be spotlessly clean and the owners to be very helpful and friendly. Very helpful advice on what was open in town for a meal. Unfortunately the box air cons in the... More

The bathroom does not have a bath but the shower has great pressure. It is clean and neat. Your sleep will be disturbed with traffic noise, I have an ipod that has a sound masker and I used that. The bed is not wonderful but it won't cripple you, unlike the Arkana in Maryborough. Microwave in the room. Breakfast was... More

We booked a family room and it was spacious and good value for money. We would stay here again. The owners were helpful and accommodating as we arrived late. Thumbs up! The rooms were warm (we stayed in June) and cosy.
