Central City Motel
Ranked #38 of 41 Hotels in Townsville
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

Stayed at the motel as it was close to my brothers unit, who we were in town to visit. But the experience we received was second to none. The staff at reception were exceptionally friendly. The motel is an amazing location close to everything and even though it was being renovated it was a very pleasant place to stay. And the price was very competitive. Will be back again.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

The hotel was being renovated when I stayed there. The manager gave me a look through the new rooms and they are really doing a great job. He upgraded me from the basic room to a family room to give me more space. Wonderful service - cannot fault how helpful the staff were.
Rooms are quiet, major attractions such as the Convention Centre and Casino are close by, there is a large Leagues Club in the next block and two pubs within easy walking distance. Will definitely mark this place down as the place I want to stay in Townsville.

Room Tip: Hotel was in the middle of a renovation but all rooms appear to be quiet.

First of all I never leave comments on internet sites but I would like to say a big thank you to the wonderful friendly and accommodating staff at Central City. The location was fantastic, service was impeccable. Due to the extremely busy weekend I was upgraded to a KING suite, and I would have to say that the bed in this room was one of the best beds I have ever slept in, I didn't want to wake up :). I ask at the reception where they purchased the beds from and they told me that I could order a bed through them, I was told that these beds would be throughout the entire hotel once the renovation are complete. Whilst the decor at the moment was a little dated who cares as the service and bed made up for it :) As I travel quite a bit I will be defiantly making Central City my preferred hotel in Townsville.

Room Tip: make sure the bed is good and the stay will be remarkable - just like mine :)

I have stayed at the Central City Motel in the past and found the staff to be unpleasant and the rooms not so clean - however due to my limited budget i booked in again and to my surprise I found a friendly voice on the other end of the phone and a smiling face happy to help with what ever request I had. I was pleased to see that the rooms where very clean with not a spot of dust to be seen.

The bed had new linen and new fluffly towels which i love. The location is perfect and central for my needs.

So thanks to the new management I will be returning and recommending to all my friends who stay in Townsville - I look forward to staying in the new renovated room which are coming. PS. As a business traveller it would be nice to see a business lounge incorporated into the refurb.

Well I was so pleased upon my visit to Townsville to see that the Central City Motel in the City has opened back up. Even though the rooms are still a little bit dated, but they were very clean and I was advised by the new Management that they are going to be doing refurbishments to all the rooms over the next coming months. Well I can't wait to see the look of the new rooms, as they are really large rooms. This hotel is well worth the visit.

Staff were not friendl or accommodating in any way as far as they were concerned it was a busy weekend in townsville and they would be fully booked regardless of standards. There were no curtains only Venetian blinds which did not work properly so sleeping during daylight was not possible. There was poor room security with a window latch broken facing close to street front. The main security door which supposedly could only be operated by room key after 8pm was jammed open permanently.
Lifts were in poor working condition with cleaning equipment and laundry often left in the space. I rate this as little better than back packer standard and will put the 30 dollars I would be charged for requesting an early check in at 1100 instead of 1400 to paying for better quality room elsewhere.
