Airlie Beach, Australia
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Great motel for passing through town. Easy to get to, off the highway, quiet area, king bed, room service and cheap. Only negative was the complementary bottles of shampoo etc in the bathroom were used and not restocked, so we put them in the bin both times we stayed. The bathrooms are very small but have a fabulous shower head.

Thank you for your review. I would like to assure you that the complementary bottles were not used and are replaced everyday. The bottles do look not quite full but this is how they were delivered from the manufacture.

Great Motel, very clean and comfortable on the river front. The restaurant is one of the best in Rockhampton. You just walk out your room and into a great restaurant for dinner, lunch and breakfast. Room service is also available.

Great hotel for business travel. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel and restaurant staff were courteous and professional and the food in the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast was great.

Stayed here two nights. Bed was very comfortable. There was a pool but wasn't cleaned while we were there and it was full of debris. Had to go for new password for internet every day which we thought was strange. Very friendly people. Would stay again

Thank you for your review. We are surprised by your comments about the pool as we do clean it everyday. The only thing I can say it has been excessively windy and the leaves from our trees are falling excessively. I have talked to our ground keeper about this and we will try to keep the pool free of leaves,...

Thank you for your review. We advertise that the restaurant is open 7 days a week for breakfast and 6 days a week for evening meals (except public holidays). We do have a bed and breakfast package but definitely do not have a bed and meal package. It is always explained to you on arrival the restaurant times and they...

We have stayed in this motel nearly a dozen times over the years and will continue to return. It is a fabulous location on the river with particularly friendly and helpful staff. Janel was wonderful.

Driving thru Rocky & too tired to continue our trip we decided to find somewhere for the night.

Clean, modern room with comfortable bed was just what we needed. Will definitely...

Motel98 is in a fantastic position, walking distance to great eateries, shopping and right on the river. This is not 5 star accommodation, but is excellent for a clean, comfortable, affordable stay. We needed to be in Rockhampton for the weekend and loved our stay and would definitely return.
