Thanks to the team at the motel for Looking after us for last three days. Lovely clean room. Basic but comfy and with all the basics you need and very lovely staff. Easy walk to town centre to access all facilities. Great for short stay or stop over

Room Tip: Family room has plenty of space

Good quality hotel. Excellent customer service.
It is old and from another era. The rooms are small but everything works. Great hot show and slept like a baby.
No food here. Went to a pub nearby.
Laundromat around the corner

Room Tip: Parking in front of room

We stayed here one night so we could do the Paronella Park night tour and visit the Mamu Tropical Skywalk the next day. Because none of the accommodation at Mena Creek had ensuite bathrooms, we choose the short drive to Innisfail. The rooms are small, but the bed was comfortable. We couldn’t hear any road noise and was convenient being able to park the car right outside the room. I would stay here again if passing though Innisfail as there didn’t seem to be many options.

I am running crews of 6 & 6 and Col and Sue at the Black Marlin have been so accommodation for my boys! The cheapest place in all of Innisfail! My boys have been running day shifts and night shifts for a week a month and Black Marlin absolutely spoil them. Chrissy the cleaner is stellar as well! Everyone goes above and beyond at this place and it is my absolute best professional recommendation for other companies to use the Black Marlin for their crew accommodation!

Clean. Cheap. Beautiful people and a beautiful location.

Love ya work guys!

Room Tip: Most afforable.

Overnight work stay landed me at the Marlin. Room was very clean. Great service, friendly welcome and even complimentary small bottle of Yellow on arrival.

Comfy bed, nice and quiet and central to town. Great stay, thanks!
