Always stay here when working in Gladstone as it central and convenient to everything I need. I have stayed in most of the rooms, the motel room, the studio room, and the 1 bedroom apartment and they are all worth a stay. The only thing against the 1 bedroom and the studio is its very dark as the curtains are...

We booked for one night and was greeted by friendly staff willing to accommodate us when we asked for a late check-out due to our son's competition running late. Nice comfortable and clean accomodation. Would definitely book here again with our next trip to Gladstone!

The motel was just a few minutes away from our friends place and I noticed that the premises were kept very clean. Service is very good. The apartment we had had a nice view. I would love to stay here again when I come back for a visit.

Tired after a long day driving, we were attracted to Toolooa Gardens by the great garden setting. We were self catering (having spent time camping further north). The helpful staff were very generous in the offer of a family room at a great price. It was immaculate with good facilities and a comfortable bed. The room was very quiet. All...

We arrived at 18.00 after a long drive. The woman who helped us was a bit grumpy. When we were ready with checking in she became more friendly and told us what to do around the city. The room was very big and comfortable. The remote control of the tv was very sticky... Unfortunately you could hear everything what was...

I was quietly surprised by the budget room. It was immaculate, and beautifully appointed. the lady at the reception was lovely and very informative as this was my first trip to Gladstone, she pointed me in the right direction for dinner and breakfast and gave me a map showing where the restaurants clubs and eateries were.

The room was a budget room and we were there for 2 nights. It was extremely clean and tidy. The bed was really comfortable and the sheets were nice, thick and crispy. Certainly a welcome relief after a big day.

After reading the Trip Advisor reviews and being on a bit of a "budget" we chose this place to accommodate us for a weekend visit to visit our grandchildren. The motel offers a variety of accommodation styles and one of those is a budget room. The earlier reviews were such that we thought we would take a chance and make...

Unfortunately,it appears that you haven't had much luck with motel accommodation in the past as we can see 2 out of 3 of your choices have been rated poor to terrible. To reply to your comments,we would like to point out the following:1.A remote is located in all room to switch on the air conditioner 2. A jug of drinking...
