Reviewed 5 August 2017

On our way to Hervey Bay, just stopped for one night at that nice, tidy and friendly Motel! We were a family of four and checked in late which wasn't a problem. Can recommend to anyone, good price, working Wifi. Very nice people!

We arrived in the evening and were given lots of information regarding dinner, how to walk to town, not to leave anything turned on when leaving the room etc. I was not thrilled about the $2.20 credit card fee as none of my other bookings.com accommodation have charged this. We were able to leave our car in the carpark for a while after checkout which was convenient. The bathroom was very small...it was clean...but 2 people cannot be in there together. The bed was comfortable. The free breakfast supplied on arrival was most unusual but a good arrangement. It came with toast, spreads, cereal, milk, tub of fruit and yoghurt. I was surprised to read this was only supplied on the first morning, this did not affect my one night stay, but I thought it unusual. It has pubs and takeaways and supermarkets within easy walking distance. There was quite a bit of road noise this morning in our downstairs room and we were woken early with noises and voices from other rooms.

I stayed here over a weekend. The room was well laid out and clean... and comfortable. That's important. All the staff were friendly and helpful with taxis etc. It's close to Station Central, (shopping centre) and restaurants etc. I hope to return one day.

We would defiantly recommend this Mineral Sands Motel.
It is clean and comfortable, serviced daily.
Anything that you need Tricia is on hand to pander to your needs, but she won't do your ironing. There is a fee free laundry for guests to use.
We originally booked in for seven days and extended, for 14 nights, it is so handy to everything.
Walking distance to major shopping centre, and tourist attractions.
Tricia and her offsider, Miss Molley make you feel great.
This Motel is for anyone who wants quality accommodation, at a very reasonable price.

Would recommend for a stay. Tricia ( the owner) was such a lovely lady, and couldn't be more helpful, she also cooks a mean scrambled egg for breakfast. It is a very handy spot, walking distance to 3 or 4 takeaways, as well as Hungry Jacks, Maccas & Aldi. Room was very clean, bed was comfortable.

The whole town of Maryborough was booked out but we were lucky to get a room which Tricia (owner) organised for us. Our room was lovely. Tricia was so helpful telling us shortcuts to walk into town among other things. The next morning before we were leaving we mentioned that we didn't realise that there was a laundry we could have used. Tricia offered to put our washing on while we were on a walking tour of the town. We picked it up after the tour, what a great lady. She had washed, dried and folded all our washing for us.

is located a short distance to downtown with several shops & eateries within walking distance. Book in was easy, I was upgraded to a king bed as I had booked in for several days. It is an older motel but in good condition & clean. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom compact & clean. The room contained a fridge & microwave. The air conditioner was quiet & efficient. There was good off street parking & the free WiFi was strong. I would certainly stay here again.
