“All you need”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Another stop in my business trip around the country, this place was great. I live on a busy road in Brisbane so I kind of like having the highway traffic sound as it helps me to sleep (I cannot sleep when it's completely quite anymore). The planes flying over are probably more annoying but they seem to stop fairly early in the evening, it is sweet watching them fly right over your head, if a little a scary.

My room was nicely furnished with a good spot for doing my work in the evenings. You can purchase wifi from reception, I got 24 hours for $5 which I thought was a bargain. The room also has a massive television set, good for sitting in bed before going to sleep. There is a DVD player and you can hire movies from reception as well (looked like they had all the latest releases).

Stayed at the Country Plaza Motor Inn for a few nights. We arrived in the morning, the staff were friendly and checked us in straight away. The room was perfect for our needs, clean and tidy. The air con was fantastic! The thing i loved about this place was that they supplied breakfast bowls, plates and cutlery, so we could buy our own cereal and milk without having to eat breakfast out all the time. The room also had a fridge and microwave which was very convenient. The bathroom was clean and looked modern. A pleasant stay.

I checked Mackay Hotel reviews on trip adviser and this one came up consistently as good. I am adding my review to that group as well.
Very friendly staff on the phone and on reception on arrival.
Although the style of the complex is 70's era the place was refurbished to be nice and modern although a little dark, the room was very clean and there was a lovely bathroom that had a beautiful stone feature wall.
Close to the airport so planes went overhead but that wasn't annoying as there are not that many.
Beautiful swimming pool and area around it.
Air con was a God send and nice to watch the big screen tv in bed.
Poured rain the whole 3 days I was there so as the room was not huge I got cabin fever and spent time at Canelands shopping centre which is excellent.
The restaurant was closed over Christmas but it looked great.
I will stay here again definately.

Room Tip: Get a room at least half way back as there are big trucks going along the road at the front regularl...

Convenient location, rooms have been tastefully upgraded. Some cleaning was poor exhaust vents in the bathroom was clogged with dust. Got woken up a few times by planes flying low over the motel on approach to airport. Surprise here was the seafood restaurant onsite extensive seafood menu and really good quality for such a small place. Reception was closed someone sick on check out not good! also white stones in car park area need looking at nearly tripped twice in my heels at night you could twist and ankle if not careful.

Room Tip: Back of motel furthest away from main street out front.

Rooms have been recently refurbished. And are modern and well appointed. However the rooms have poor lighting and feel very dark with dark timbers and furnishings. The darkness also makes the room feel small. The bathrooms are nice with a rock feature wall. The room smelt fairly musty but would be typical of the Mackay humidity. Would reccomend for an overnight stay but no longer

We stayed in the 'Spa Suite' were quoted $185/night. When we arrived price was discounted to $175. This was just the first of the pleasant suprises. What a lovely room! The bed, the bath, the facilities, the location, the noise (what noise??) were all amazing! I spent a great deal of time time researching Mackay accomodation - I am (so I am told) an extremely critical and fussy person (don't tell my husband I admited it!). I could not have been happier with my choice. We were so impressed we booked a second night!

Room Tip: Ask for the spa suite!

A motel that has moved into the 20 th Century, refurbished in modern detail. Reception was friendly and a choice of 38 units that are in a U shaped construction. The rear units no traffic noise. Rooms are on the small size ,but a Queen and Single bed fits well in the space. Bathroom well designed and toilet and shower in a separate area. Large T.V. and plenty of extra blankets and pillows.Breakfast delivered to your Unit.
A great bonus was the small Neptune Restaurant and Bar.Good food and service, believed run by Italian family. Would stay here again ,for Sure.
