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.

Apartment room was excellent. Air conditioning was on when we arrived. The room was large and spacious with a super comfortable bed. The kitchenette had everything needed to prepare meals if staying for an extended time. We ate a fantastic meal at the restaurant. Secure car park right outside the door.

Big Spacious. Had what we needed BUT the sheets on the single bed were not clean. There was lots of short black hair from the previous sleeper around the pillow area. Totally gross and not okay. There was a daily service to make beds and change towels, perhaps this could be changed to ensure a full clean between patrons.

I’ve stayed at a lot of the hotels in Emerald but this one is now my go to. The room I’m in is very clean and spacious with plenty of desk room for work along with a full size fridge and kitchenette. All the cutlery was clean and plenty of tea and coffee available. A nice big tv to watch the state of origin on and wifi available. Craig has helped me out a lot for my stay and helps other colleagues of mine too (thank you very very much Craig). Great communication and a great bloke all round. The food from their restaurant is next level (get the steak! You must get the steak). Thankfully i don’t have to go elsewhere for great food so this is very convenient. All in all I really can’t fault this place and ticks all the boxes for my work and personal requirements. As close to a home away from home for a hotel.

The check-in procedure was quick and pleasant. Plenty of parking in an inner courtyard. Rooms were well maintained, and had all the facilities we needed. Close to the centre of town, and on a main road - but noise was not an issue. The large windows had roller shade blinds, opening to an enclosed yard.

I only stayed here for 2 nights, but I still have nightmares about it. It was easily the most poorly cleaned motel I have stayed in for years. I had to wash all the plates & cutlery, as they had the previous people’s food on them. The floor was completely sticky. I was too scared to take my socks off, and they were black on the soles when I took them off. I had to throw them away. They have no Covid precautions at all. The receptionist was rude. I felt like I was interupting her morning at checkout. I rarely write poor reviews, but my advice is to find anywhere else to stay than here.

We stayed here for one night on business. Check in was easy and the lady at the counter very helpful. The room was clean and fresh with the bed very comfortable. Checkout the following morning was a breeze.

Over my 3 week stay in Emerald at the Gateway motel, I was blown away by the high level of service from all of the staff including those in the restaurant. Nothing was too much hassle for any of them. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable - a great combo for short or long stay. Absolutely would recommend and will be staying on my next trip to Emerald 😄

Stayed here two nights during some of Emerald’s hottest weather. Room air conditioning was a blessing! Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable, very quiet. But the restaurant is terrific - one of the best “Hot Rock” steaks I’ve had anywhere, and the breakfasts are great quality with plenty of options. Staff are most courteous and very pleasant. Motel is well located to local shopping village, cinema and clubs. A pleasant short stay.

A good little playe to rest your feet. Close to shops and some food options, including KFC/Maccas etc. Air conditioner is a welcome treat in this hot little town. The restaurant is quite good also for breakfast or dinner.
