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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I’d stayed at Motel Maclean on four previous occasions, this time under new ownership, great renovation/refurbishment and Sammy’s management was a whole new and improved experience.
New old style hospitality with crockery plates, s/s cutlery, mugs, real milk in a cold clean fridge, couple of biscuits, shampoo/conditioner/soap, heat pump with clean filters, great pillows, well-made bed, excellent wifi.
I live in NZ and drive Brisbane to Melbourne each time (generally annually) I come over visiting my extended family and Maclean is the perfect break on the return leg of the journey from Sydney to Brisbane.
In my mid seventies so look for faults and found one - the leading edges of the ceiling fan blades need a wipe……
First class! Thank you Sammy, a real eye for detail.

Very clean and comfortable, good sized room and nicely renovated bathroom with generous lovely products. Toaster available if needed and microwave with basic cutlery and plates in room which is very helpful for a quick breakfast. Friendly helpful staff and nice view of the river.

Stayed the night at this lovely motel which overlooks the mughty Clarence River just on the outskirts of MacLean. We found the room very comfy quiet and spotless. We even had 'real milk' and big coffee mugs! Enjoyed a vino while watching the sun set from the elevated outdoor area in front of the motel.

The staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us.

Thank you!

Comfortable and convenient location, HOWEVER woke up in the morning to cold showers. When we brought this to the managers attention, her response was that because the weather was cloudy, the hot water system couldn’t generate enough solar heat. Probably wouldn’t recommend to anyone staying on cloudy days then. Not good enough. Definitely need to update their hot water system!

This is a great place to stop for the night on your way to QLD from Sydney, we have now stopped here on 3 separate occasions.
We have always found the Motel to be spotlessly clean and hosts very welcoming. There are currently new owners and they are improving the place even more.

What a difference a change of management makes.
We were enjoying the view and the nightly migration of the flying foxes and were met by a person with a xxxx in his hand who told us {customer/visitors] that he was the manager and he hated the job and was only doing it for a friend and was not getting payed.
Multiple night stay and the room was not serviced. When questions were raised about this about this to the woman at the reception, he later became aggressive so we stayed in the room and I [woman ]was uncomfortable to go outside until we left the next morning.
I hope this is not the attitude of the new owner.

We stay here every time we are in maclean. The staff are wonderful and very helpful. Rooms are comfortable and the cost is very reasonable. We stay in the family room and its great. Some noise fron the road but nothing major. When it's full parking can be an issue. Worth a try

This is a great litle motel for a stop on the way from Sydney to Gold Coast. Nothing too fancy but spotlessly clean with everything you could want. Has a microwave which is great if you want to have an easy dinner without going into town. The bed & pillows were very comfy and the bathroom absolutely spotless with extra handtowels, washers etc. Our room was a double & had a small sofa to relax on and a table & chairs to eat breakfast. The owners are friendly & very welcoming. The position is good as you have a view of the river. We really like Maclean and love to have a little wander around before heading off - lots of good coffee to be had!

We stayed at Maclean Motel for 2 nights on a recent stay to visit family. The room was simple, spacious and spotless with a large bathroom. Bed and Pillows were very comfortable and rooms have aircon. Kerry-Anne was so helpful and friendly and we would be happy to stay here again in the future.
