Stayed there recently while travelling with the family. Beds were comfortable but linen did not feel clean and in the middle of the night I found myself laying next to someone's artificial eyelash in the bed!! Restaurant was very good and we were very happy with the quality of food. Very good air conditioning throughout the unit so had a...

I always stay here with work. An easy walk to town. Nice bar and restaurant if you want to stay in. Rooms not flashy but clean, good shower , good ac, park right outside your room. Coles is over the road if you want anything Service is exceptional- they remember your name even if it's been 6 months since your...

The rooms here are nice/clean and seem to be fairly new. The Wifi is brutally slow in the rooms but much better in the lobby. The food at the restaurant is good quality but the service for both a dinner and a breakfast was very slow.

I got stuck in Emerald because of flooding and spent 2 nights in this beautiful Motel. The location is very good, it is clean and cosy. I had a lazy day and it was no problem spending it in the room and near the pool. The room is modern, very clean and quite big. The equipment is good with a...

What do you want from a motel when you are traveling? For me, it is a comfortable bed, a good shower and a TV that has more than 3 channels. Fast unlimited internet would be a bonus, but it is hard to find. Route 66 has 2 of the 3. Be aware that in Summer, the cold water tap may...

I had an overnight stay when I was in Emerald for business and found the hotel well situated. The only complaint would be that there was no fresh coffee on instant. It is next to the rail line but I didn't find it very disturbing.

Really enjoyed staying here. Very clean and modern. Loved the fact that we could hear the rain on the roof during the night. Thank you for an enjoyable stay. We will be staying here again in the future

Clean and modern rooms, comfortable beds but very uncomfortable pillows. The free advertised wifi did not exist in the room but was available if you stood out in the car park or at reception. The traffic noise would be a problem for any light sleepers. Handy access to the Coles shopping centre which is just across the railway track.

Nice enough room but absolutely terrible pillows. The air-conditioner made a constant whine which meant I couldn't use it overnight - luckily the weather was mild. A bit of traffic noise, but that might also be because I'm not used to it. (Amazing how much traffic goes through Emerald!) But the rooms are nice and the bathroom and shower was...

From the staff to the owners and the rooms,this motel is the best. I was stranded in Emerald due to flight and train cancellations after flooding in Carnarvon Gorge. It was my worst holiday ever but got a little ray of sunshine from the friendly and so helpful staff here. They went above and beyond what they had to for...
