“An OK place ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Completely adequate motel, comfortable, spacious, no pretensions. The front of house staff are most pleasant and welcoming. The motel is in a busy street with lots of places to eat in close proximity. Traffic noise is evident but not at all intrusive, except for the occasional V8 hoon! Beds are very comfortable, I slept well!

We were to stay in a nearby motel but the room had flooded so they booked us into this motel instead for us. Room was comfortable. On busy road and close to ambulance station therefore lots of sirens, but also close to local takeaway restaurants. To begin with staff were not very friendly but it did improve has our interactions continued. Ordered breakfast room service and it was good value for money.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Arrived with no booking and inspected the standard low set motel rooms with car spaces infront of each room. The price offered of $110 a night seemed quite normal for smaller towns for midrange motels. Stayed one night.

The management was very polite and friendly and checkin was done with ease.

If your room was right on the main road it would "probably" be a bit noisy (for me) however we were situated in the middle and could only hear a small hum of traffic noise causing no problem. Some other guests arriving late were a little noisy talking loudly waking me up however sleeping environment was generally good. Bed was comfortable enough with Aircon that worked well and a flat screen tv. Shower / toilet of good quality.

Location convenient to restaurants and other shops by waking.

We stayed at Bundy in June, travelling there by Tilt Train. Our email contacts with Acacia Motor Inn were helpful and friendly & always promptly replied to. (We are still waiting to get replies from 2 nearby motels to our initial enquiries!)
Acacia is well located on Bourbong Street, not far from the railway station. It is a nice walk, not too long, from there to the main part of the CBD/shopping centre.
As we were staying for 4 nights we asked to have a room towards the back of the large motel (2 wings at the front & another at the back near Woongarra Street). We were not troubled by any traffic noise.
There is access to & from the motel via Woongarra Street as well as the main entrance. The Woongarra Street gate is closed later at night. Parking is excellent, all under cover with large bays.
There is no restaurant at the motel but several take-away food places, cafes & restaurants are either in the same block or the next block.
There is free WiFi internet – if you are staying more than 1 day then you need to get the new password from the office daily. The owners are very good to deal with, always friendly and willing to help - including driving you to or from the railway station. The cleaners also are friendly and helpful and do a good job of keeping the rooms clean.
Our room was basic but comfortable and well-priced. As we were staying longer we requested the use of extra crockery & cutlery as well as a microwave.
We enjoyed our stay very much & are pleased we chose Acacia - but we do have one complaint & that was the shower. However, if you stayed only 1 night we feel it would not worry you.
We found the shower to be a small problem. It is a modern one with good water pressure etc. The lack of any kind of raised lip, shower curtain or door means some of the water flows out into the bathroom.
No matter how carefully we aimed the shower head it still happened each day. The problem was solved, to some extent, by the helpful cleaner giving us extra towels to mop up the damp floor.
The bathroom basin is outside the actual bathroom with the mirror to the side, not in front of the basin. There is plenty of storage room – room for 2 suitcases on a rack, enough hanging space plus open shelves in the basin area.
We had a 2-seater sofa and coffee table – the sofa was worth enquiring about for a longer stay. Our queen bed was comfy and we slept well.

Room Tip: Ask for room in the back section near Woongarra Street, further away from any traffic noise.

My wife and I visit Bundy at least once a year and always stay at the Acacia. We have recently spent a night there on our way to Cairns and found the motel to be clean comfortable and friendly. Although on a main road we heard no noise. We shall continue staying here as it has always been a good experience.

Have been staying here for the last 2 years once a month for work, my husband also stays here with work as well. Sue & Shane are great hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them, feels like home away from home, have even taken the dog ( Lucky ) for a walk, Shane cooks a good breaky, has under cover parking and nice wide car parks, large TV and free wifi. Has pizza, noodle & chinese food just across the road. Fridge in reception is always stocked up which you sometimes need after long day on the road.
