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.

Very comfy and large unit with comfy bed, roomy bathroom and good working air conditioner. Table and chairs as well as microwave are handy to have in the unit. Excellent value. Very clean and well maintained. Although right on highway, traffic noise does not appear to be an issue.

I made the booking over the phone a few days in advance and all was well when we arrived. This is second time I have stayed here in the last 18 months. Rooms are OK but nothing special. Rooms are also overpriced in my opinion. Little noise comming from the Highway, so sleep quality is good. There is not a... More

I stayed at this motel whilst in the region. The Staff are very friendly and accommodating. The Air Conditioners are the highlight. Quiet and cold. can't ask for better. Rooms are clean and large enough for a short or long stay. The pool is very well maintained. Thanks Guys. Will stay again in the future.

Arrived late and struggled to find somewhere to park. Thankfully it's not a big motel so the car park is quite small and although I had to park my vehicle away from my room, it wasn't too far to walk with luggage. Room was clean and comfortable. Walls were quite thin which startled me at first as I had turned... More
