Greeted by most adorable receptionists - Tommy and Coco! We used this motel for the location and the price was reasonable. Beds are comfy, aircon and little fridge that fits two six packs of beer perfectly. If you want to go for a picnic, they can pack you a lunch!

Some would say it's old but it was very clean, comfortable bed, lounge, mostly quiet in room 6 but some traffic noise and earplugs take care of that, the hot breakfast is superb, great value! We stayed 5 days and room was cleaned everyday. Will stay there in future for sure.

The room was a bit small, but this was expected with the budget price, and as a one-night stopover it wasn't a problem. It was quite clean and adequate, and the bed was comfortable. The owner of the motel and his cute dog were friendly. Being on the left side of the road was a bonus, as the traffic was...

We chose this motel because the price was more reasonable than others and it is located within short distance of the CBD and food outlets. the rooms are old, as is the decor, but pleasantly spacious, with enough room to put luggage and to eat a meal. There is a sofa to lounge in and two chairs. The TV was...

Uncomfortable bed. Dirty old bathroom. Just happy to have a flush tiolet. Prints on wall faded. Only plus is it had rooms available. I feel the price is too much. Left the next morning as quickly as possible.

We chose this accomodation because it was close to Hervey Bay, and stayed 2 nights. King bed was fantastic and very comfortable. Plenty of water pressure in shower was very good. Room was clean and friendly staff. Great deal at local pub, all you can eat for $10. + sweets. Shopping centre walking distance. Red Rooster is also just across...

Had a one night stopover here, easy to find with easy parking. All rooms are downstairs, rooms are old but very clean and comfortable. They do breakfast to your room. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Good vale for money if your on a budget.

We stayed overnight on our drive South. Close to Bruce Highway so easy to get back on the highway the following morning. Very friendly and helpful welcome. Rooms were very clean, good sheets and towels. Bed a bit small, but comfortable. The décor was a bit old fashioned, maybe needs a bit of updating but good value room for $95.00....

Stayed overnight prior to joining a coach trip departing from Maryborough, and again when returning from the trip. The motel is ok for an overnight, room and bed reasonably comfortable but they and the bathrooms looked in need of a good makeover, and had a stale smell !!! The person signing us in on both times was not overly friendly...
