Every thing you need for a comfortable stay. Very pleasant, helpful management, quiet, immaculate rooms, very well equipped with everything you need with the bathroom set up with soaps, lotions, shaving cream and shampoo and conditioner and hairdryer. Very well located close to the hospital and shops. Couldn't fault it.

Very clean, quiet, but central location, friendly owner and lots of little touches. Owners are working very hard and take pride in their business. Lovely little pebble garden on drive-in with water features, pleasant pool area. Could not fault.

Have used this motel everytime I am in Maryborough for business, which is a couple of times a year. For someone who wants good service, clean rooms and a bit of peace and quiet at the end of the day, this is a perfect choice.

This has to be the cleanest place we stayed in on our 2 week car trip. It is comfortable, the people are pleasant, it is quiet (oh, how wonderful!), and it was a very pleasant stay. We were glad to have stayed at Caro Motel, and will happily stop there again.

We overnighted here before jumping on the ferry to Fraser Island. Rooms were clean, the ladies at the front desk helped us with all the tourists activities in the area. Had a toaster and fridge, updated rooms, very pleasant. Would recommend to anyone traveling through!

Neat and tidy motel, everything you could need, very clean and appears that the rooms have recently been renovated. Very friendly managers. Right opposite the hospital. Coffee bar nearly next door. A great budget place to stay.

This truly is a gem of a find, not the least because of the incredibly pleasant, helpful and generous owners, Imre and Rita. We had too many demands (!!) but they were genuinely willing to help us as much as possible. The unit itself was spotlessly clean and prettily presented. Great hot shower and a slightly firm queen size mattress...

My wife & I were on visit for her regular biannual school reunion. We choose Cara Motel to stay for these visits. Imre looked after us this time. The room was very quiet, renovated to a very good standard, the bed was very comfortable. There is cover for the car. All in all a most desirable motel to overnight or...
