What do you want from a motel when you are traveling? For me, it is a comfortable bed, a good shower and a TV that has more than 3 channels. Fast unlimited internet would be a bonus, but it is hard to find. Route 66 has 2 of the 3. Be aware that in Summer, the cold water tap may...

I had an overnight stay when I was in Emerald for business and found the hotel well situated. The only complaint would be that there was no fresh coffee on instant. It is next to the rail line but I didn't find it very disturbing.

Really enjoyed staying here. Very clean and modern. Loved the fact that we could hear the rain on the roof during the night. Thank you for an enjoyable stay. We will be staying here again in the future

Clean and modern rooms, comfortable beds but very uncomfortable pillows. The free advertised wifi did not exist in the room but was available if you stood out in the car park or at reception. The traffic noise would be a problem for any light sleepers. Handy access to the Coles shopping centre which is just across the railway track.

Nice enough room but absolutely terrible pillows. The air-conditioner made a constant whine which meant I couldn't use it overnight - luckily the weather was mild. A bit of traffic noise, but that might also be because I'm not used to it. (Amazing how much traffic goes through Emerald!) But the rooms are nice and the bathroom and shower was...

From the staff to the owners and the rooms,this motel is the best. I was stranded in Emerald due to flight and train cancellations after flooding in Carnarvon Gorge. It was my worst holiday ever but got a little ray of sunshine from the friendly and so helpful staff here. They went above and beyond what they had to for...

All our party felt this motel was very overpriced, not value for money at all! The pillows were terrible, the sofa bed no better than a camp stretcher and there was no wifi as advertised. There was no staff there all weekend to consult when needed. One of the reasons we booked this motel was the pool and spa because...

A small but comprehensive evening meal menu. Was able to also take advantage of their 2 for 1 main meal deal ( by using a shopper docket from the local supermarket) Meals range from $17 to $28. Excellent friendly staff. Good small selection of wine. Very tasty food. Would recommend to anyone, who is after a little class.

Not a bad spot at all, easy to find. Good rooms, comfortable beds, modern rooms that are nice and big, awesome shower and bathroom facilities. Awesome pool but not very big. Was here on a work trip with a big group of us and they accommodated is pretty well.

I had an unexpected stay courtesy of the airline when my flight back to Brisbane was cancelled. The motel kept the kitchen open and handled the sudden influx of tired passengers cheerfully. Good (if expensive ) dinner and clean, comfortable room with good bed and shower. Breakfast was a buffet with an excellent frittata/ omelette.
