                  Good room rates and comfy rooms this why we booked the same room again as last time very happy there (: thanks heaps

                  my kids were playing on the floor in the room and pulled out from under the bed beer bottle and rubish but other then that the room was clean

                  Found booking quick and easy, reception was friendly. Complimentry drink was a welcome surprise after driving for almost 600 km and 9 hours of road works from Rockhampton.

                  I thought it was unprofessional for the recepeitionist to work behind the counter with no shoes on and not answer questions......all up I thought I should havestayed at a pub for a third of the price

                  Not much at all actually I was bitterly disappointed. The bed was very comfortable and that is about it!

                  I was given the keys to our room only to walk in and find that the previous person/s was sill in the room, there were towels etc.. everywhere their key was on the bench and I quickly closed to door again and went back to the reception office. The manager? Came and checked the room and gave me keys to another room? Which was located next door, I'm glad that no one saw me go in there it was very embarrassing indeed, those ppl could have been showering, anything really, not very good. For the price the bathrooms were so tiny you could hardly move, you couldn't move around the main room as the beda nd the table took up most of the space available, so hence for the price I believe it was over priced for the amenities. I'm sorry to complain, but we stay in many motels/resorts etc and this was probably the worst.

                  liked the additional furniture[ small dining table and chairs] and the shower and hot water were magic [ best of any motel i have stayed at in 5yrs]

                  We stayed in Maryborough on a business trip. The Motel is well located. Staff great. Motel looks great, and close to fantastic meals. Once inside, it is obvious that the building is not new, and is probably up for a bit of renovation (bathroom) especially before too long, I would certainly stay there again. When you wiegh up the age of the facilities with the price, you can not complain. Bonus for us was being able to park off street with a taller than usual vehicle. Beautiful surrounds also.

                  Well apointed room, very friendly and helpful staff, excelent location, excelent value for money. Older style type facility, but would recomend it to others and stay there again.

                  parking bay allocation.

                  5.8

                  The Kingsize bed was very nice. with a good night sleep assured. External noise was non existent. House staff were very friendly.

                  Excessive mold in the bathroom which is a health issue. Chairs were tattered. Not one draw in the room. Found management not very friendly or welcoming. Would not stay there again unless I had no choice. it's the friendly service that makes you overlook the flaws of the unit. I did take photo's but not of the worst section behind the bathroom door.

                  Friendly and relaxed and close to all city shopping and conveniences

                • Family with children
                  6.2

                  Location, was also situated close to fast food outlets.

                  No powerpoints near bed, inconvenient if you need to plug in something like a sleep aponea machine. No bedside lamps for reading or needing to get up during the night to go to toilet. Awful smell coming from drain in bathroom. Dangerous uneven cracked wall tiles & no shelf in shower recess to put shampoo, conditioner bottles. Would have been nice to have some biscuits supplied. Also resupply of milk. Need to fill up Hot water jug in shower as bathroom sink tiny. Was not supplied with clean cups/saucers & teaspoons- obviously expected to wash up yourself in tiny bathroom sink. Aircon & fridge very noisy and could hear persons in next room. Being situated on a main road you could hear trucks & general traffic most of the night. I would recommend only for overnight stays.

                  Family owned, well looked after, motel very clean and tidy, staff very helpful.We will stay again when in Maryborough.

                  Room a bit small for a 5 night stay when reason was Grandson playing at Queensland Hockey Championships. But the whole of Maryborough was booked out for the week.

                  Breakfast was lovely.

                  There was no way to adjust the lighting in the rooms. It was either on and bright or off and no light. Would have been useful to have a dimmer or a bedside light to be able to check the kids without waking them.

                  It was a very clean well managed motel that catered to our late arrival in a professional maner and the staff were very courteous and considerate and un obtrusive.The resident arachnid that made stay fun see below.

                  the room was fine except for the pet huntsman spider that had a cuppa with me then proceeded to have a shower with me and finally decided to crawl into bed with me.i finally caught it and relocated it to outside but it is what you would expect at a country motel

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  An acceptable standard of accommodation for a lower than average tarrif. I will be happy to be accommodated at the Arkana when needing accommodation in Maryborough again.

                  Rooms were ground floor made it easy for my wife to access the room as she has a physical handicap The only down side was the access to the bath room was a bit small she had a job to manoeuvre her walker.
