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 have just spent a couple nights in the Mackay Motor Inn.

The MacKay Motor Inn has the following, good size rooms, a great quiet
AC, good size TV free to air & FOXTEL, very good WiFi, fridge, toaster, microwave, great room service and quality meals, the best bed ever and I mean ever, quality sheets and awesome pillows with extras in the cupboard, extremely clean, ironing board, spacious bathroom with a place for toiletries, good shower, undercover parking, free coffee & tea, biscuits, cutlery, large and small plates, bowls, coffee mugs, tea towel and more,
plus a pool & BBQ and
awesome friendly helpful hosts.

The bottom line, I always ask myself the question:
"Would I stay here again?"
I certainly would and will be staying at the Mackay Motor Inn the next time I'm in MacKay and so should you 😁

I represent a group of golfers who stayed at Mackay Motor Inn early March 2023. We used 12 rooms and found that they were very clean, spacious and a joy to stay there.
The management team went out of their way to assist us even going so far as buying extra chairs to put around the pool area so we could have our "happy hour" and daily presentations. WE all agree that next time we come to Mackay for a golf trip we'll definitely stay at the wonderful Mackay Motor Inn. Thank you Naomi and her team

I am normally a bit wary about Trip Advisor reviews, but in this case they were spot on. Although the Motor Inn is right by the Bruce Highway where trucks power along all day and night, and although the layout and finishes of the rooms is kind of old fashioned, the Motor Inn is scrupulously CLEAN. Its comfortable with most everything you need for a restful night (including an excellent coin operated laundry for those who have run out of clean clothes) and we were not bothered by the noise of other guests. The management were VERY helpful, and the Motor Inn is centrally located so it was not a big problem to find a place to eat. Do yourself a favour and stay there. Its not luxurious but then it does not pretend to be.

Really great people.We had a trailer and the staff went to great lengths to help us park both the vehicle and trailer.
And the meals . . . just like my wife cooks, but more on the plate. I could not fit it all in, and ice cream too. My wife never lets me have ice cream ! We stopped on the way home too, and it was just as good. This is going to be my regular stop when I travel through Mackay.

we needed somewhere close to city due to appts and because of school holidays had to settle for this place staff were ok but really only worth stating if you are a smoker average room clean but very average tv remote not working and bed was like a rock, no cold water in fridge just an empty jug, there is no smoking in the rooms but they have desinated smoking areas outside the rooms supposably meant to be 4 mtr from rooms nope it was disgusting we walked out of our room into puffs of stinking smokers everywhere so to get into our room we needed to walk past smokers what is the point of saying it is non smoking when they are outside your door!! also the place is mostly contract workers so it was a tight squeeze getting car in and out wont be staying again not our type of place when it promotes smoking even the manager was outside having a smoke within the arwa of rooms yuck

Cheap motels are normally just that, but this one is not just cheap, its clean and functional, has all the things you need for a one nighter.

A bonus is that they serve meals, yes room service.

Evening meal was plain but tasty, breakfast to the room was excellent. Just what you need when you have a business meeting then a long haul (800kms) home.

the rooms need a thorough cleaning, not to mention some work done to them, ie power points don't work so couldn't use microwave unless you move it somewhere else around the room, and the rooms are not quiet, need some painting etc, they are advertised as fully refurbished. won't stat again.

This place was great, no it's not the flashiest place around, but I was after something relatively cheap & this place popped up in my search. Great spot & fairly quiet considering it's on the main road. Very clean inside the room, comfy bed & hot shower, what more do you need?! I'll stay here again next time I need a room in Mackay. Late checkin? No problem, they left me a key as I didn't arrive until midnight.

After travelling nearly 13 hours to get as far as we can on the second day, we got as far as Rockhampton and we thought lets get to Mackay as it would be far to our final destination. So after traveling another 4 hours we arrived in Mackay around 8:30pm.
We were looking for a motel around that time and we come across this one which is a 24 hour and it was on the right hand side as you are driving in.
As we were leaving at 7am and the office opens at 7:30am you can pay when you arrive and leave when you want.
