We spent one night here. The room was OK., set up like a dormitory with minimal seating apart from on the beds. Good quality towels, toiletries etc. We were walk ins and the woman who 'greeted' us could have auditioned for the White Witch in Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe. We were apparently a huge inconvenience to her, wanting to stay a night in her motel. With this reception I would not have stayed but my husband felt he had driven far enough. So my rating for the property is definitely downgraded because of the front person.

As a basic hotel/motel this place is perfect for the person staying a few days in the area or just passing through on their way for business activities like I was with a few other colleagues.

The beds were a little hard but the shower was hot and strong, the television had pay-tv and the air-conditioning was ice cold. I was expecting road noise as it is located on the highway but it was very quite. It is a short drive into the Mareeba Township and there are plenty of choices to eat. You may even prefer to eat the room service menu provided by the hotel.

I would only suggest that the Jackeroo provide a few extra eating utensils in their rooms as I did bring my own breakfast for an early departure.

We stayed here during TC Yasi, the owners are new and really nice, place is in a great location , rooms were spotless and well set up.
Would have no hesitation about recommending this hotel.
