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.

Could not be happier than to write a good review about this Motel in Childers, I rang ahead and easily booked a room with Sam. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised at the place the room was amazingly clean and very well equipped, easy parking right next to the room and the place is extremely quiet. I definitely will make reservations here again and I have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful Motel … thank you

The rooms are well equipped, tidy and have very comfy beds. Very impressed with the service and had a wonderful stay, feeling fully recharged to hit the road again. Cannot recommend this accommodation enough and will use it again on our trips to Brisbane.

This Motel is our go to place to stay when driving to Central Queensland. With two young kids, we can get a family room, and since our last stay, they’ve also upgraded the rooms to make them more modern. The other nice feature is the small things they think about offering, such as access to microwaveable meals and drinks. We haven’t had a reason to need these yet, but when travel can be unpredictable these little things gives great peace of mind.

Second time staying on a long drive down from FNQ to Sydney. Very nice quiet motel with good sized and laid out rooms which are well equipped. Shared kitchen is a big plus for us and a great idea. And friendly staff confirm it as a good choice.

Very clean comfortable motel that was really pleasant to stay in after a long day on the road, had a great nights sleep and would recommend this as a place to stay. We booked at last moment after a long day of travelling and just needed a place to rest, this was a great place.

Diamond find! Great motel with large hot shower, comfy bed. There is wine, beers (cheap prices), noodles, chips and more at reception, and this is a real bonus. The motel is on the outskirts of Childers, so is quiet and away from the usual pub noise. The rooms have tea and coffee facilities and a microwave. The bonus is the communal laundry and kitchen, which has gas cooking, a freezer, and all the cutlery and crockery you could ever need. One of the best thought out motels I have stayed in travelling around for work. Pleasant reception staff and they have reception open until 9pm which is great fro weary travellers. Highly recommend.
