The reception was welcoming, the rooms were quiet and comfortable, and looks like they have been refurbished as the outside does not match the inside. The bed was comfy, the AC worked well and quiet, The bathroom is very clean with all the shampoo's etc. My only minor comment is the rooms don't really allow for self catering. The minibar...

We have only stayed at this Motor Inn once but will only stay here in the future. We travel from Townsville to Toowoomba yearly and will only stay at this Motor Inn as we journey south.

I've been staying here on business and personal trips for a number of years, and can say the quality has never been a let-down. This time around they were accommodating of my very late arrival, and it was a relief after driving all day to find such comfort. The room I was in was modern and had proper desk facilities...

We arrived as a large group and the manager was so accommodating. Everything was well organized, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the food was a delectable several course meal. The manager/owner even assisted in our organizing our tours of the area. It was a fantastic stay.

Great place to stay. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable. Lots of products in the bathroom and great coffee. We are in the restaurant and dinner was excellent. Popped into the tavern for a look and the locals were friendly too. Superb value all round.

From the guides most of the motels seem the same, we found Emerald Maraboon Motor Inn to be above the rest from making the reservation, to the standard and cleanliness of the room to getting the car windscreen cleaned. Having the choice of 2 restaurants just a walk either side of the accommodation was a huge bonus and we selected...

The Emerald Maraboon Motor Inn is very family orientated. It is divisionalised so that punters and drinkers can relax without interruption from children. There is a playground and pool to keep the children entertained leading off a family dining room. The food is excellent and excellent value. Would recommend to anyone.
