We stayed during the last two days of the V8's, we picked this motor inn by default as everything else in Townsville was booked out, we travel up every year usually just after the V8s but were able to get there early this year. Our normal accommodation which is usually $120 a night was jacked up to $500 a night while the V8's were on so clearly we weren't staying there. I was pleased to find that this Motor inn was not cashing in on the V8's, it was a fabulous quaint little place, very quiet even though On a busy road and the patrons of the V8's were all leaving at the same times every morning. The room was impressively clean with everything we needed for our two night stay before resuming our usual already booked accommodation. Had I known this place was going to be so good I'd have booked my entire 12 day stay here. The shower in this motor inn was amazing, it's not too often I'm not ducking or bending or running about in a shower trying to get wet, but this was an awesome shower full relaxing almost massage pressure shower head at a sensible height. For both myself and my fiancé this was so good it was actually a conversation point for us.. It's the simple pleasures that make somewhere a good stay.
We did not try the restaurant as it was not open on weekends, only running Monday to Friday. However just a short 2 minute walk is an awesome pizza shop, and a Chinese takeaway next door.
The only downfall we had which was room specific i hope was the fridge was very noisy, not noticeable during the day but I'm a light sleeper and it kept me awake most of the first night, but I turned it off and slept brilliantly, I turned it off the second night when I went to bed and had no problems. The beds were very comfortable, clean and provided a very restorative sleep.
Over all I think I'll be booking my accommodation which is usually a minimum of a seven night stay at this Motor Inn. Any person not expecting something for nothing will be happy here.
