Reviewed 27 July 2013

My son booked us in here for a weekend of kart racing. Everytime we left the room we would return to open windows & thinks moved. We joked that they may have been hiring the room out by the hour in our absence. Look I guess you get what you pay for but the best renovation that could happen at this place would be conducted by a Bulldozer. Seriously look elsewhere unless you like looking at dirty ceilings, mould, old dump market type furniture & listening to exhaust brakes on trucks (whilst praying they don't come into the room with you).

My suggestion is to look somewhere else.

Room Tip: Best tip for a good room? MMMM stay somewhere else.

In 1972 this motel would have been ok
Staying there is like stepping back in time
I was seriously tired so slept well, one might only , never again. I will time my trip better and stay on the sunshine coast

, Owner at Nationwide Motel, responded to this review, 11 October 2012
Hi we have not long taken over this Motel and yes it was in a very bad state of Repair and Dirty. Since taking over we have not stopped scrubbing and cleaning and repairing. Any thing we have not been able to repair we have replaced EG ( Beds - Reverse cycle air conditioners - Curtains Linen) Fixed Pool. Cleaned Grounds and Replanted and Trimmed Gardens. This Motel did not get into this Run Down State over night and we cannot do everything to get it back up overnight . Please Bear with us we are doing our Best to put a Smile back on this Old Ladys Face (MOTEL) She will never be young again but she will be CLEAN and Smiling. To Keep prices down we do ask people to Turn off Air Conditioners when not in rooms. We also ask people not to Distroy our property . Unfortunatly we cannot cancel out what Previous owners have advertised. We honour any advertising we have done in our Name since taking over this Property. Thank You

Owners had a bad attitude from the time we got there, refused advertised room service, no electric blankets as advertised, bathroom had a terrible toxic smell made me feel sick,owners were only worried about making sure everything that included power was always off to cut their costs,Gardens and plants were dying and/or needed pruning,rooms were in need of desperate renovating, wouldn't recommend staying there

Room Tip: any other motel

Very Helpful & Friendly Staff. Both of the managers were extremely helpful & went out of their way to give me directions which was very nice. The room was small but clean. My bed was comfortable.
I Ordered both a dinner & breakfast during my stay and was very impressed at the quality of these meals.
I will definatly be staying here again when coming through Gympie Next.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra & get one of the up the top Queen Rooms. Much Quieter & a larger room.
