Stayed only one night when I was in town for work. The room was comfortable and clean. The showers were hot & with plenty of water pressure. The bed was great, almost too good as I overslept which I rarely do. Across the road from the hospital, but there was no noise. The staff were great & eager to be... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Cara Motel. Imre and Rita are a lovely couple. My room was very clean and tidied daily. Will definitely be back if I need to stay in the area for work again. Thanks for the great food too. Brady Smith - SEQ Fibreglass

Cara motel was clean. Good value for money. Staff very friendly. Service was great. Only 1 thing I found to be problem was that the floor in the shower was slippery when wet. Definately stay there again. Having a cafe next door is good for extras.

We were in Maryborough for a wedding and had read the reviews and they didn't disappoint. We had received an email days before asking if we needed anything, so I asked for early arrival and was no problem. Very clean rooms, nice and quiet,friendly staff and a great coffee/takeaway breakfast which opened early on a sunday morning! Very good stay!... More

Friendly staff, immaculate rooms, at door cover parking. It was a delight to stay here. I was able to check in late after a long journey and they were very accomodating. It was within 5min of everything i needed to do, and even a quaint little coffee shop just around the corner. Would definitely stay here again.

Cara is so close to showgrounds, it was really convenient after along day of showing ponies. Just wish we had time to enjoy the pool... More

A friendly welcome, even though we arrived early. Room was very clean with nice touches, mints by the bed, fluffy white towels with shower cap, tea and coffee, bathroom dispensers. Fast and free wifi. Fox TV. The room has a queen bed and two singles.

Nothing was a bother for Rita who, from the moment we arrived, was very welcoming and friendly. I had a few requests during our stay and Rita provided me with them all.
