We stopped in here breaking up our road trip out west. Reception was friendly & helpful, accommodation was clean and comfortable, reasonably priced and very centrally located to shops, cafes and restaurants. Not far off the main road into town and easy to find.

As our tour bus rolled in to the Emerald Meteor Motel, some of my fellow travellers had already spotted what their keen eyes always sought. The nearest retail therapy was just across the street, right in the middle of downtown Emerald. Some of them seemed to be trembling with excitement as they scooted across the street, trying to get in... More

This lovely motel is well situated in the centre of town but without the noise of the highway traffic. Although not having an updated decor the rooms are clean and well presented with all the regular amenities. The staff are extremely welcoming and the motel has a restaurant and bar with excellent meals. Exceptional value and customer service for a... More

This was our second stay at the Meteor and we would definitely stay there again. We were in town for medical reasons and arrived at 11.00 am. No problems about getting straight into our room which was great as my husband was not well. The ground floor room was clean and comfortable with a screened, sliding door opening out onto... More

During a recent 5 weeks’ motorcycle tour, I stayed one night at the Emerald Meteor Motel (19 April, 2016). I had booked 24 hours in advance and check-in was friendly and swift. I was allocated room 24 on the ground floor, together with the much appreciated advice that I had been upgraded. My original booking comprised an upstairs room for... More

Reasonably large, very clean and comfortable accommodation and friendly staff. A handy and central spot on the way south made this an easy and good value option. Would recommend and would definitely stay again.

The room we had was a pleasant surprise, larger than I thought it would be with a good sized bathroom and plenty of bench space. The sink, microwave and toaster in the room was very handy. Would stay again. Only complaint would be the air con was rather noisy.

Dropped in for one night driving from Cairns to Sydney. Friendly and helpful staff that went out of their way to provide good local attraction information. Quite old styled motel that definitely needs an overhaul. Rooms are clean but very dated. All things considered it is only marginal value for money that would do better with a basic update if...
