Stayed here on business. Was not a great experience. The positives were that the room was large and seemingly clean, the motel was reasonably well-located and the staff were nice. The negatives were that the motel was very expensive for what it was, extremely dated, and not very secure (thin doors and accessible windows).
A group of us stayed here for business. One of our party checked out late one night when her room was overrun with bugs. We were told that there was a sandfly problem in Mackay at the time. The rooms could not be properly sealed against this - there were gaps under the doors, and my room had louvers in the bathroom which could not be shut.
The rooms all had issues with power - when I first arrived I turned on the airconditioning. We went out to the shops. By the time I returned the power had stopped working, which meant that the fridge was no longer cool. That said, the staff were happy to help and switched the power back on. But I believe this was a problem across all our rooms.
In short, this was a tired motel. It is a reflection of how few accommodation options there are in town that a basic old motel such as this can charge $150 a night. I understand that the standard is consistent with others at this price point in town, but that's not saying much. The fact that it appeared to be full every day reflects the lack of options rather than the quality of the motel.
