Spent two nights at this motel, so quiet. The room was spacious, very clean and the bed so comfortable. Managers are lovely and so helpfull. Motel close to town but can order a meal in if you want. Breakfasts are also available at reasonable prices. A pool for the warmer months. We have booked again for next year.

Despite the out of date decor, this motel is very clean, quiet and had very comfy beds. There's even a pool! Will definitely stay here again, and recommend to anyone in Childers. Entry was a little hard to find at first in the dark is my only negative.

Very obliging staff who make your stay as comfortable as possible. The premises are just far enough off the highway so that you are not disturbed by passing traffic.Reasonable rates for the room and breakfast which is quite substantial.

Always stay here on our way up north. Geoff and Nicole very friendly and helpful. Stayed in a family room. Our daughter has privacy, air-conditioning and TV. Pool was lovely to swim in. The Motel now has a guest kitchen to use. Great for if you want to save money and cook your own meal.
