Travelling with young family from Townsville-Brisbane we didnt want to stay in a highway motel and were looking for somewhere better. We were easily accommodated by Motel 98 with a twin room. It seems more like a boutique establishment with very large comfortable beds. The overall room standard far exceeded our expectation it was clean, well fit out, and more like something you would find in the big city. Or short stay was great value, dinner and brekky in the Bistro continued the theme of surprising us. I don't normally write reviews but this place deserves a look.

I've travelled for work in the US, EUROPE, and Asia Pacific. 98 is consistently one of the most relaxing and enjoyable places i stay at. Clean, comfortable rooms, good restaurant, great staff, good price, close to everything, good wireless internet and you can park your car right outside your room.

Awesome value for money motel located in a great location. Newly renovated rooms with an extremely comfortable king size bed. Service and quality of food in restaurant were outstanding.
As a constant business traveller to various parts of QLD, this is the best accomodation I have experienced in 5 years.

Room Tip: Room upstairs with balcony and king size bed had a great outlook over the river and a nice way to do...

The room in the motel was nice and clean. The bathroom and furniture seemed relatively new (renovated). The room included a balcony overlooking a small garden and pool. The motel guests are free to use the pool. Free wifi. We had dinner in the motel bistro which was a little expensive but the service (and especially the chocolat cake) was amazing.

This motel is very clean and comfortable with lovely meals and quiet rooms. I would have liked river views but even though this motel is on Quay St it doesn't have river view. Has a small balcony overlooking the pool which nice to sit on with a glass of wine. I went for a lovely walk along the riverbank early in the morning. Staff was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend this motel.

I booked into Motel 98 for one night. They are in the process of refurbishing the Motel which it desperately needs. It just happens that they are pulling up the bathroom floor of the room directly above me. This means constant hammering noise which is interrupted by sound of the radio turned up full blast. I called the reception to see if I could get another room without luck. Here's a tip, if you are refurbishing rooms on the first floor, don't let the rooms below because it is very unpleasant for the guests!!!!!!! Trying to catch up on some work and can't!!!!

Aside from that, the place is tired and not great.

My advice NEVER stay here!!!!!

Stayed for one night as a half way mark from Brisbane to Townsville. Got a deal off wot if for $115. We were greeted by what would be the first of the lovely and helpful staff. Our room was very clean and had everything we needed for one night. We chose not to eat at the restraunt was a touch to expensive for what was on offer but it did look to have a lovely atmosphere. The bed/s (2 singles pushed together) was okay a little too soft but slept well. The bathroom fitting though practical were out dated. I am not sure what makes motel 98 4* it was nice but not that nice. We would stay again if we could get a cheap enough price.
