If you are wanting peace and quiet, I cannot recommend this property. It is 15 meters from a sugar cane railway which runs until late night and resumes early morning.
The staff however are really nice and the rooms are quite clean.

Thanks Scott for your review. The sugar industry is an integral part of life in Central Qld and unfortunately the cane trains do run from July to early December. I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay and hope to see you next time your in town for work.

Stayed here for two nights as this is half way on our 2 day drive South, one night on our way south, one night on our way north. Motel is on the Bruce Highway so easy to find, but this also means traffic noise. Motel advertises evening meals, but not offered when we stayed. Ate at local hotel, which was OK. Motel costs $110 per night, expensive when compared to Mackay rates, rooms are very basic, but quite adequate. At the end of the day, this is the best place to stay in Sarina :-( Might be worth driving 30 minutes longer to stay in Mackay!!

Room Tip: Ask for room away from the highway.

I stayed at Christmas Day 2010 in Sarina. The Host David and Michael welcomed me warmly. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable, service was great. We have a great evening with an delicious dinner. It was definitly one of my most remarkable Hotel stay in Australia.
Thanks to the host for this.

We stay at this motel one night whilst exploring the area for potential real estate opportunities. The motel is not right in the 'CBD' part of town, however it is on the edge of town where is it a little more quiet. This motel is typical of its seeming age and starting to show it. Whilst the room was showing its age it was clean and tidy. The bathroom was roomy enough to be comfortable.

The room contained everything we expected, ie. Tea/Coffee facilities, mini fridge, microwave, plenty of cups, towels, soap, etc. There was new flat screen tv with Satellite TV. The beds were not the most comfortable but definately not the worst I have slept on. There is a pool but no restuarant. The staff were very freindly and helpful. While we were there, the owners were taking out all of the old a/c units and replacing them with split system style a/c which will be a lot better and quieter.

In summary, if you are staying in Sarina, this is probably the pick of all the accommodation here. I hope this helps. :)
