This is a fairly typical small town motel. It was functional and very clean. Management were pleasant and helpful. Not flash, but I would stay there again. And the quaint, tidy town of Childers has plenty of nice places to eat and chill out.

The room was large and the motel seems to always be busy. Free Wifi and easy to connect. Reasonably priced and better than some more expensive...

I stayed at the Gateway Motor Inn on 18 October during a "photo trek" around Central Queensland, and while it was just an overnight stay, I was more than impressed not just with the Motel itself, but also with the friendliness of the staff who were more than willing to suggest places of photographic interest in the area.
