A completely no fuss stay with friendly staff and clean and comfortable accomodation. A short drive to the town centre that didn't deter from the rating. Check in and check out took less than five minutes in total.

Stopped into the Macquarie Barracks for an overnight stop on the way up the coast. Upon arrival staff were friendly and helpful offering up areas to go for dinner. The place presented well from the street and there is plenty of parking onsite. We just took up a standard room which was basic but clean, had all the amenities required...

Somewhat of a disappointment. The property is in serious need of updating. Located on a busy road b t we really didn't hear anything until in the morning then it was loud and clear. However, we did eat at the restaurant and it was very good. Highly recommend the restaurant even if you are not staying at the motel.

Very good motel, spacious, clean and comfortable. Convenient kitchenette in the room, but it would be better if there was also a microwave. It was perfect for our short stay. Friendly guy at the reception.

A classic and typical motel of yesteryear. Pleasant and helpful staff on arrival. Clean and tidy room and well serviced. The bathroom shower could do with an upgrade...leaking shower head and typical mould around base of shower glass. All up it was ok for what we paid.

Travelling from Brisbane this motel is off the Pacific Hwy. The room was immaculate and had verything I needed. The pool was clean and refreshing. Check in was friendly and efficient. Lots of parking. Excellent blinds to keep the room dark.

We had a very brief overnight stay at this motel on the way from Sydney to Byron bay. Its not an expensive motel, so it was surprising and very pleasing to see a couple of standouts. The room was clean. Spotless, in fact. Its a slightly dated interior, but it is a chain motel. The mattress was excellent, pillows were...

The room was standard but nicely furnished and decorated. We particularly liked the friendly service at the front desk and the restaurant. Good food as well (the fish and chips were excellent, I thought) with good servings too. We'll done!

Struggling to find a family room at peak season in Port Macquarie we booked the Macquarie Barracks warily. Needn't have worried, we had a great one-night stay. The upstairs room was large enough for 4 with a queen bed, single bed and sofa bed. Everything including the bathroom and kitchenette was spotlessly clean. We slept well with no road noise...

I stay here on my way when I drive to either Ballina or the Gold Coast from Sydney - approx halfway point to break the trip up. I have found this motel to be consistently comfortable in all aspects and very roomy. Beds comfortable, kitchenette, and spacious bathrooms. The Reception staff are friendly, helpful and no fuss. Upstairs and Ground...
