Rooms are extremely tidy and very spacious with everything you will need. Lillian and Allan make you feel like you are at home and nothing is a problem. I stay at Coral Sands Motel every time I am in Mackay and will continue to do so.

Good working fridge, kettle & microwave. The pool looks clean and inviting. The laundry facilities are handy to have insite. The restaurant, which is next...

I will stay there again next time I am in Mackay. Whilst you are there try the Hot Wok Asian and Thai restaurant next door. Pool area is clean and with easy access to the city and walking tracks, a great location to unwind after a days travel or work.

This is a great place to stay. Very happy welcoming people that brighten the end of a long day to put you in a good mood for the night. I got a free upgrade which made it even better. The restaurant has great food & drinks. I'll be heading back next time in town.

Room was clean and well set out, beds comfortable. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and put our heating on before we arrived as it was cold.! lovely looking pool (too cold to try) had a laundry as well and everything was close by including restaurants. Under cover parking was an added bonus

Happy to recommend for anyone to stay here, great location, handy to eatery's, pubs but still a quiet location with no road traffic noise at all. Had 3 rooms and they were all good size rooms. The benefits of having a microwave in each room is the finishing touch you need.

New managers are very welcoming and nice people. I would fully recommend this motel for comfort , convenience and value for money. Having the Chinese restaurant on site is an added advantage for people who do not want to drive.

Love this place for its location and reasonable rates - just on outskirts of the City Heart!!! Only hundreds of metres from some of the best restaurants in Mackay - Sorbello's, Cactus Jacks, Hog's Breath, BURP & The Dispensary. Clean and liveable accommodation. Even got a free upgrade to a King Room. Staff were friendly. Will definitely stay again.
