Nice clean room, comfy bed, plenty of blankets and pillows. Staff are lovely and friendly, we dined at the restaurant and enjoyed our meals. We were going to dine two nights in a row but they weren't open on Sunday (which is fair enough). We were only staying 1 night but decided to stay another since we were so comfortable.

We had a short overnight stay and found it fantastic. A lovely clean, large room with a great bathroom with heaps of bench space. The meal in the restaurant was very enjoyable would highly recommend a stop over. I don't usually tip but I did this time very impressive with friendly staff.

The service and friendliness of was great. We choose this accommodation having once lived in Emerald and used to accommodate most of our contractors/consultants here just after it was new built. Unfortunately, despite its relatively new age, the rooms already appear to be poorly maintained but clean. The location of the accommodation is central to everything in Emerald. I was...

Route 66 Motor Inn is a large very modern well equipped rooms. Disappointed that there was o free Wi-Fi (not even for 1 hour)in the units-you had to go the restaurant to receive it. Very short walk to town centre, local shopping centre and the botanical gardens next to the railway line(only two trains a week come through). Good undercover...

I have stayed here a few years ago and I have returned again based on that positive experience. There is traffic noise and you should ask for a room away from the railway line if you are a light sleeper as there are late night early morning diesel locomotive trains. Good size room and ensuite, although the toilet access is...

Not sure how I have missed this one for so long. I am a regular visitor to Emerald and The Route 66 leaves the rest in the shade. Clean modern well appointed rooms, internet that actually works, delicious meals, close to town. And lets not forget the friendly welcome with,"If you need anything don't hesitate to ask". I'll be back...

We stayed in an apartment with a well-equipped kitchen, two airconditioned bedrooms, bathroom, and a good sized lounge room. Having our own kitchen was great - while the motel has a nice restaurant, it was closed for Christmas at the time we visited, so being able to cook our own dinner was great. We had such a comfortable stay; the...

This motel is great value for money. Room was clean and spacious as usual, this is the second time we have stayed here. I think last time I gave in 5 stars, just a couple of things this time disappointed us a tad. The air con did not cool the room down - even after closing the bathroom door the...
