This place is really nice. New, clean, large rooms, well appointed. We were very pleased with the room and the reception staff member on checkin was friendly.
It really meets everything you could want from a motel. Location on the main drag is great too!
Only thing I would say is that it wasnt the cheapest place ($145/nt), but I dont know what else around in Dalby there would be. Still, Id pay that to have such a good room.
The one thing that they really need to fix though (and why I dropped this a star), is their reservation system. They seemed like they had no clue!
We booked well ahead of our stay (was a wedding). However, we didnt get any confirmation in writing or email. No problems we thought, thats just the way it rolls in the country. Anyway, I got worried on the way to Dalby and called ahead to check.
We were told they had no reservation for us!!! Needless to say we were very disappointed, but luckily they said they had a room available and that we were very lucky.
That alone is pretty bad for a motel/hotel. But the icing on the cake was on our way home after checking out, we got a call from them asking why we didnt arrive for our reservation!!!
At least we had a room and were on our way home, so we laughed it off. But really, this is pretty unacceptable. If we had been on our way and didnt have a room to stay at, this would have been a much, much worse review.
My advice is definitely stay here. But make sure you get something in writing from them whenever you book!
