Harbour View Motel
Ranked #12 of 22 Hotels in Gladstone
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Name now very appropriate. View whole harbour. Yvonne very friendly and helpful. Basic motel but has cooking facilities. Close to City and Yaralla Sports Club. High on the hill. Air con needs remote. Have to stand on chair to switch on/off.

Room Tip: Room 16 was fine, ground floor at the front.

Family room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Very quiet location but close to town and with a magnificent view. Staff were very obliging and friendly. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

Why Not is an older style motel but the room I was in was basic but clean. As I was on a business trip and travelling by myself my appreciation goes to the new managers for looking after me and making my stay comfortable. Still some work to be done around the motel but the new management are friendly and enthusiastic. Thanks for making me feel welcome!

Room Tip: great view from some of the rooms....beautiful sunrise!

The cab driver who took me from the airport wasn't sure where this motel was or familiar with the street name either! So you start to get the picture that it is not on the list of most popular stays...
This motel is real old style - fibro look, tile floors, no internet, no restaurant, not big on faciities at all really.
It is clean has in room coffee, tea making gear, the staff were very co-operative with late check-in, early breakfasts, etc, ...and it is close to the town centre (maybe not for walking). The view is good but it is does not have faciliites in place to appreciate it.
It is a bed - get in and get out style for a budget price.
In saying budget - be aware that Gladstone has too many visitors during the work week and too few beds - so you have to book early or else you pays heaps for ordinary digs and a fortune for 'normal' modern facilities (or camp out of town)

The worst motel I've ever stayed in. Room wasn't cleaned. Bad smell in room. Sometimes there wasn't any hot water. I could go on but I'd probably bore you to death.
