A very professional friendly team run this motel. The rooms are well appointed and spotless, with comfortable beds, airconditioners are quiet and efficient. Breakfast is a delightfull start to the day with a very good coffee available, rather than the weak dishwater normally served

A nice clean place to stay. I Went for a nice walk around the area. The Pool area was lovely. The room was very spacious. There is a laundry on site with a clothes line or dryer. And then there were the gorgeous mango trees out the back. It was a nice place to stay for a night. I would... More

Stayed 3 nights during vehicle repairs after OTT. Quiet location. Very clean. Very comfortable. Super friendly and very helpful staff. Very nice garden with BBQ - there is also BBQ near pool. We like the room design - front door to parking and rear door to garden.

The Jackaroo Motel was a lovely place to stay when in Mareeba for work these last 2 months. The staff are absolutely wonderful, from the well-kept rooms to the constant kindness they showed to my work colleagues and I. Although the rooms were located close to the main road, I thoroughly enjoyed staying here and would gladly do it again... More

We stay here on a business trip. The rooms are clean and tidy but a little dated.The staff are very friendly and helpful.. They also have free wifi .IIf we were to stay again I would ask for a room away from the road as all you could hear were cars and trucks passing.

We recently stayed at the Jackaroo Motel in Mareeba for a night while visiting family. This is a lovely, clean little motel with wonderful service from the front desk. We were upgraded to a larger room as they were very busy, which was great. This is not a new, super modern motel, but very clean and perfect for an overnight... More

Room clean and comfortable - very spacious, with lots of desk space (very useful for working). I also appreciated having undercover parking. The highlight for me (however) was the friendly face at check-in... it's always so nice to feel so welcome! I would happily stay here again

Have stayed at the Jackaroo each year for many years for work, and always have a good nights sleep. It's surprising how quiet it is at night considering the truck traffic during the day. The rooms are ... roomy and the beds large and very comfortable... pillows too. A short drive to main dining areas, but the hotel also has... More

Needed a base to attend a family reunion. Room was a good size for 3 adults with a lovely garden retreat away from the highway. Undercover parking was open with few posts and obstructions.
