Reviewed October 7, 2010

I chose this motel for the advertised "free wifi" but wished I hadn't! The wifi speed is only slightly faster than the old dial-up & you can forget about watching any flash media files. I couldn't in all seriously say it has a Restaurant - more likely a room just off Reception that has some chairs, which is very dated & very dark where they serve food. I think they also call this a Conference & Function area (I could be wrong)! Room & bathroom was clean, bed in good shape. Air-conditioning a little noisy.

Nice, friendly staff.
Clean room, a bit dated though.
Didn't go for a swim(cold weather) but the pool looked nice.
Check in and out was a breeze.
Could hear a lot of traffic at night, especially trucks.
Dinner (room service) was the best!!! When I saw the prices I thought they would be tiny serves but it was the opposite and the food was delicious and sooo filling I didn't even have brekky the next morning.

We had an emergency trip to Rockhampton as my father had been flown in quite ill (on life support). As we had left home in the middle of the night and drove straight to the hospital we had not had time to organise accommodation. We ended up at the comfort inn and really, I was shocked. We have travelled quite a bit and were disgusted by the room that we were given. It was dark with only one tiny little window which you could not open. The smell was so disgusting, it had a very strong mouldy, mildew smell, not only in our room but in the entire motel! Our air conditioner did not work properly and kept freezing up and I as work for an air conditioning company I strongly recommended to them that they service the air conditioner and make sure it gets a coil clean. We requested a fan - never received one. The room was so bad that we actually slept at the hospital because it was cooler and smelt a whole lot better. Absolute disgrace - would never recommend to anyone.

The travel lodge was booked out and I was slotted into this Motel. I did not have a good feeling but it was late and I would have been donating them the $130+AUD if I had of cancelled. The front desk staff were very friendly and efficient and this is where the positives stop.
There are two rooms in the photos as I swapped from one room to the other.

The “dispenser” style soap and shampoo are such a nice treat (not). And why bother with the screw down bedside lamps, no one would steal them anyway and you have no useable space on the beside tables as a result. The bed in the first room was so soft you could be mistaken that there were in inner springs in it. The bed head in the first room (note photo) was about 900mm from the main door entry point..what is that??.

The second room was laid out in a superior manner and the bed was OK. All rooms on the balcony and street level have large window area and a large sliding door entry. I would rate this feature as a big 10stars in the most ridiculous bad hotel design features. But by far the biggest let down for me, apart from the high price and the bad fittings was the water flow limiters on the shower.

In Rockhampton individual properties pay for the water they use so I can only assume this facility has choked off the flow to save a dollar. You spend twice as long in the shower fumbling with soap dispensers and try to wet your whole body. Here’s a tip, keep your high accommodation cost at your peril, but off set this by taking the flow limiters of the showers and fixing the décor…at least then it may have be heading toward a positive experience.

We don't mind recieving comments about the hotel. But when its posted on the website14months after the stay its not a very accurate comment as changes have been made and the motel has gone through 1 owner and 2 managers during this period.
