Too small for three.

Pros: Clean and tidy.
Cons: Soundproofing. Space.
Location: Not far from shops.
Very clean room, though architecturally somewhat dated. Too small for three adults. Lot of truck noise every couple of minutes up to midnight.

Avocado Motel Childers

Pros: Handy location. Air Con was good. Room was clean, had everything. Toaster, Microwave, Fan, fridge, iron/ironing board. Under cover car parking.
Cons: For a budget room it was spot on for 2 persons, felt it could be tight for 3 persons
Location: Childers does not have many shops open after 5.00pm. It is relaxing walking through the main street and window shopping.
The room had everything in it. It was a budget room, but for an overnight stay on a long driving trip very suitable.

Comfortable Stopover

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, WiFi, clean and comfortable
Cons: The noise from the highway
This is a comfortable stopover for anyone needing an overnight rest. The owners were courteous, friendly and helpful as they welcomed me to their motel. Bearing in mind that it is rated 3 stars, don't expect luxuries. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and the shower was hot! There were the basic facilities you would expect in any motel room - kettle, fridge, iron, toaster, TV - as well as free WiFi. The biggest drawback is that it is right on the highway and quite noisy.
