Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I arrived at this motel with no booking after a bad experience at another and was quite upset and quite desperate for a room (uni student placement commitments). The lady on reception was just gorgeous and calmed me down, found me a little room which was perfectly clean and tidy with plenty of place for me and advised me to relax and go in the pool to calm down which I did. The pool is a lovely clean area with lots of plants and is a perfect wind down.
Absolutely great area, immediately opposite Coles, a bottle shop and a pub, and a subway! Will definately be booking again next time im in town.
And thank you again to the lovely lady on reception for her great customer service and care 😊

Motel OK to locate. Staff member very friendly and helpful. Room upstairs which was a challenge since my spouse has mobility issues. However, motel was filled with guests so no alternative. Staff recommended venue across road from motel for good priced evening meal which we visited and quite acceptable. Overall happy with the venue.

Very sketxhy establishment, broken locks on doors and windows, unclean peat ridden. I have witnessed multiple drug deals on the property and believe they are carried out by permanenr residents. On two occasions i have caught undesirable people casing our vehicle, which we have had to move to private paid parking elsewhere. I recommend you to avoid this motel unless you are looking for a good drug deal, car to steal or you want your room broken into.

Older style property with a slight "institutional" feel but perfectly comfortable and pretty well maintained, so was fine for a one night stay as we made our way south.
Queen bed plus two singles was great for us and our kids, plus a couple of chairs to sit outside.
Lady who checked us in was lovely and she had to explain to two disappointed kids that the pool was closed...but she did give us great directions to the splashpad in town instead.
Were some very noisy guests also staying at the same time and they kept going in and out until very late in their loud car. Not the motel owners fault but kinda got the impression that these were regular stayers maybe?

Cheap and not so cheerful.

Pluses: reasonable bed, room clean but very dated. Abundant hot water. Fittings and fixtures very tired and in need of update. Pub over the road has good meals.

Minuses

Only one coat hanger in the wardrobe? No desk for laptop/work just barstools and a high counter not comfortable for extended work. Due to price and condition of the property and price it attracts clientele who aren’t terribly considerate of other guests. Drunken and aggressive shouting and swearing late at night. Noisy sitting outside rooms smoking at all hours. Cig smell outside rooms is unpleasant. There are much better options in other parts of Townsville just as inexpensive but far far nicer. Would not recommend or return intentionally.

We stayed here as a family and wanted a decently priced room with three beds (double and two singles). This room met our needs. A little bit on the small side, older and could do with a refresh, but clean and comfortable. Check in was friendly. The motel is popular with workers (lots of work utes in the car park after 5 pm). It’s away from the town centre. Online rates were cheaper than the walk in rate.

A very dated motel with plastic bathroom towel rails etc. The bed linen was very clean, however the bed was not comfortable; it had a hump in the middle. Time for a new mattress perhaps? Advertised "Free Foxtel" but was not anywhere to be found on the TV remote. Also advertised a bar, however the glasses hanging in the bar were covered in dust so I doubt they are ever used. Glimpsing the fridge in the bar there were a couple of beers and some soft drinks. It is obviously rarely used.

It was way too far from the city centre also. I won't stay there again.

Had a wonderful stay at Raintree Motel. The owners, Brian and Merelda could not have been more welcoming and accomodating. The rooms were clean and spacious, and serviced daily. Everything we needed was close by. Foxtel was provided and free wifi.
Beds were comfortable and all the rooms had air con and fans.

They even had a lovely BBQ and bar area (with extremely reasonable prices!) with a pool to cool off on those HOT summer days!
