We chose this motel because the price was more reasonable than others and it is located within short distance of the CBD and food outlets. the rooms are old, as is the decor, but pleasantly spacious, with enough room to put luggage and to eat a meal. There is a sofa to lounge in and two chairs. The TV was... More

Uncomfortable bed. Dirty old bathroom. Just happy to have a flush tiolet. Prints on wall faded. Only plus is it had rooms available. I feel the price is too much. Left the next morning as quickly as possible.

Room was clean and friendly staff. Great deal at local pub, all you can eat for $10. + sweets. Shopping centre walking distance. Red Rooster is also just across... More

Had a one night stopover here, easy to find with easy parking. All rooms are downstairs, rooms are old but very clean and comfortable. They do breakfast to your room. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Good vale for money if your on a budget.

We stayed overnight on our drive South. Close to Bruce Highway so easy to get back on the highway the following morning. Very friendly and helpful welcome. Rooms were very clean, good sheets and towels. Bed a bit small, but comfortable. The décor was a bit old fashioned, maybe needs a bit of updating but good value room for $95.00.... More

Stayed overnight prior to joining a coach trip departing from Maryborough, and again when returning from the trip. The motel is ok for an overnight, room and bed reasonably comfortable but they and the bathrooms looked in need of a good makeover, and had a stale smell !!! The person signing us in on both times was not overly friendly... More

When I booked this motel, I didnt realise that we had stayed there before, but our details were still on file and I was happy to repeat the booking. Clean comfortable and friendly.
