The budget accommodation is very disappointing.

Pros: Cheap. And that says it all.
Cons: Nearly everything.
Location: Nearby to shops and club.
The on-line photos look very appealing. These look like they're of the attractive front section of the motel. The back section is old and very tired. Ceiling slumping. Power points loose on walls. Dirty footprints on bathroom wall. Greasy handprint stains on toilet. Dirty marks on bathroom door. Inconsiderate fellow guests reversing mine vehicles (beep beep beep) at 5.30am. Mostly absent manager.

Will definitely stay here again

The room was very clean, the staff were brilliant and very friendly. They waved goodbye when we left like we were family :) There was a basketball hoop for the kids to play with, which we spent hours at.

not the greatest

Cons: designated parking!
I've stayed here a few times now, but i will not stay here again. The last two times in particular I have asked for a room with the parking out the front, as I am a sales rep & I have a lot of valuable goods in my car. When I checked in- both times I asked again & was assured that Yes I definitely did. I parked the car, then I had to go to my appointment & upon return from my appointment BOTH times the car space was taken . In a certain area of the motel people are told they can just park anywhere. This is not suitable for everyone. This is definitely not suitable for me, particularly when I have asked for parking out the front the last two times & have not received it upon my return. very disappointing. You also get woken up approximately 4.30am by miners leaving for work.

Moranbah outback motel.

Pros: staff friendly.
Cons: beds, pillows.
Location: LIcensed club one door away, very loud music!
Staff were good and friendly, the main issue was the room although it was clean, the bed was not comfortable and the pillows had no body to them and were flat. The band next door at the licensed established played very loud music. I was very tired and needed an early night so much for that. I think there are other motels away from licensed premises that I should have stayed at. The motel was close to town centre no problems there.

Disappointing stay

Just a few things that all added up to a disappointing stay. I had to change my dates at the last minute (totally my fault), but they put me in a more expensive room and didn't tell me until I went to pay. The airconditioner was broken and needed to be reset The smoke alarm casing was hanging down and when I asked about it, it was fixed with sticky tape. I went to order some breakfast and some communication confusion meant that I ended up with 2 poached eggs (just the eggs, nothing else) for $20, Thankfully they reduced that to $10 for me. Nothing horrendous, but lots of little things that added up

It was a pleasant accommodation for an overnight stay. The room was clean and quite comfortable.
