Our room was very clean and comfortable. Service was excellent never needed to ask for anything. Reception was warm and friendly, checkout was fast and efficient. Walking distance to cafe's and easy access to town. Some outside noise.

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.

We had a 3 night stay, while my daughter had a horse show at the Maryborough Showgrounds. Our stay was great!! Our room was serviced and spotless everyday. We were provided with toaster and crockery. 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.

We stayed in Maryborough for a sporting event this weekend and the service at Cara was very friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely and clean each day, which was lovely to come home to after being at a muddy cross country track all day!

Nothing was too much trouble for the cheerful owners of the motel. Our room was very clean. Milk was supplied when we arrived. We had undercover parking and free wifi. There was a good supply of fluffy white towels and seeing that it was a really cold night, the extra supply of blankets was very welcome. However we couldn't get... More
