This hotel offers a great place to sleep if your just flying through mackay like we were. Rooms are clean but nothing special. Shower could do with some updating. Free wifi was great. That all said, it's easy to find and on a main road. Best thing was it is cheap.

Second time I have stayed here the last being in 2009. Little has changed other than the availability of WiFi. This is your classic Australian country motel, single storey, u-shaped, pool out the front, you know the type. Yes it has seen better days and needs an update or possibly a bulldozer, however if you are after a cheap overnight...

We stopped in Mackay because it was too long a drive between Gladstone and Townsville. There didn't appear to be much there for tourists. The Pioneer Villa Motel is an old tired place but it has everything that you need including free WiFi. It was a Sunday and we didn't see any restaurants nearby but luckily we found a bowling...

Clean easy modest rooms but very comfortable and everything you need for an enjoyable stay, close to good eateries and a very convenient location. Undercover parking an added bonus. Very cheap rates which is very good value for what is on offer. Comfy beds and nice rooms.

Have stayed here a few times over the years and on this stay I hadn't planned on it so saw a vacancy sign and checked in - at $70 a night is a bargain. My only disappointment was that they did not clean the room and came back from work to unmade bed and damp towels. But for $70 I...

This is a cheap and convenient motel for me on this strip. It has seen better days but has all I need and is around the corner from the business I visit there. Service and everything is very stripped back but I found the beds ok and while a bit worn in places it was clean. Number 15 had a...
