The pictures seemed to be a bit misleading the room is very dated and I'm not sure how the previous occupants washed the cutlery as there is no plug, no detergent etc. I ended up washing them by hand in shampoo. Wifi is hit and miss and I got it OK on the mobile phone but had to sit outside...

We booked this motel for a stopover knowing we were going to be in and out in a short period of time so were not expecting a lot for the price. However upon entering our room the floor was covered in water, it was not clean, the bed was not comfortable. We wouldn't even put our suitcase on the floor...

Stayed here overnight between Cairns and Mackay. Aircon was on coldest temp but didn't get overly cold, still it was enough that we could sleep. Toilet and shower very clean. We had a room up the back which are standard rooms I think, $65 so I wasn't expecting the taj mahal. Car parking was right out front of our room....

Disappointed, The room itself was fine but we were put off by a number of cockroaches in the room and the shower was leaking badly. A number of other things like bedside light not working and the soap tray in the shower is broken.

We chose this motel for no other reason than cost and location as it is on the main road en route to Airlie Beach where we were heading. Check in was quick and easy and Chris is friendly enough. Free parking was right outside our room. The room was clean and tidy but unfortunately the Air Con was the noisiest...

We booked this as a stopover hotel in our way to airlie beach. It was good value for money but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it as had a really bad nights sleep. The air conditioning was noisy, the lights in the parking were on all night and they were right outside the window. The staff however we're friendly and helpful....

Great place to stay when your so far away from home. I stayed 2 nights at this hotel which was close to all that is required whilst on holiday close to the city, shops & transport. Friendly staff, clean room, comftable beds & an excellent BBQ & pool area!

We have stayed here several times over past 12 months (Staff still do not seem to recogise us.) Every room seems to be different so check the room first. Some are great value and others are very mediocre. In some rooms, you need to be a contortionist to use the toilet (unless you are left handed).....We have had leaking taps,...

The rooms reflect the type of accommodation you would expect 40 years ago. Although this was very tired, the rooms were clean and staff were pleasant. It could be summed up as very basic. Electrical products were adequate. TV was aged and remote partially worked.

Walking distance to Sun Hotel, Coles, Bakery and other shops and eating places on Charters Towers Road. Early check in is a bonus particular if you arrive on early flight out of Brisbane. The rooms are very comfortable and pool area for families.
