Place to crash off the road

Pros: Comfort and price
Cons: Published address does not match motel entrance, coming in at night using GPS created minor disruption.
Location: Capella, halfway between Emerald & Clermont, Queensland
We needed an overnight stop, place we had used previously was full. Reception at pub bar, motel rooms are all very new in appearance, not overly large but comfortable, bed was very comfortable. Dinner and breakfast in pub, food quality excellent,we were treated well by friendly staff.
