      Rooms a bit noisy - road Noise and next room can be heard. No hair dryer provided. Wasn’t happy fridge had been turned down during room service , even though we had food in the fridge, wasn’t cold had to throw out what we had. Property dated but was clean and tidy.

      We booked through hotels.com for 2 A, 1 child (14). The room we booked didn’t have facilty for the child. We ended up having to upgrade. Hotels.com need to fix the search engine to accomodate the guests chose for search. Pointless of a double bed or queen for 3 people which was not the motels fault. Bathroom amenities could do with an upgrade eg shower head. Friends stayed in different unit and had not hot water for her family of 4 for 2 nights. Ran out couple minutes in.

      The location was great. Great cheap prices. Great service and friendly staff with smiles on their faces. The motel is a bit outdated, but for the price, location and service, I'd stay here again.

      It was a pleasant stay. The owners seem to really care about their customer's experiences while staying, which is really great to see. The room itself was very clean, the bed was comfortable, with nice soft pillows. It was also decorated nicely, and felt private. The room is a little old, but that never bothers me. The walls, especially in the bathroom, need a bit of attention though. I noticed that there was spakfilla on some of the walls and the back of the door, as if they were on the way to being mended, but someone never got around to finishing the job. The toilet lid also had a crack in the corner. There was also some road noise and a barking dog heard, but that's not something the hotel has control over, so I wasn't overly bothered by it. Overall, I had a great stay! They provided tea, coffee, soaps, towels, cups and spoons, and fresh water, so for me, the good outweighed the bad. For the price, it was a good stay, and I'll definitely come back if we need somewhere to stay in Maryborough again! :)
