Motel 707
Ranked #1 of 8 Emerald B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 February 2013

The room was awful. They shut the cold water off at 8am, so you can't shower unless you want to boil your skin off.

I had a "do not disturb" sign on the door, and was woken by the dirty asian cleaners trying to take the chain off the door.

Do NOT go there!!!

Check that the A/C works - ours didn't and the owner appeared a little disinterested when I mentioned it the next day. He said he would attend to it but it has probably been broken for some time. The receptionist checked this when we arrived and said it was working but we didn't discover it lacked any cooling until later in the evening after we had settled in. The caretaker was very friendly and explained that they were in the process of renovating. Some rooms had been partially renovated and had new A/C units. No door to the shower which didn't please my daughter. I thought that $140 was too expensive but I understand that accommodation is difficult to get in Emerald given the mining activities.

Found the Motel to be very clean, comfortable and customer focussed.
Meals excellent, full buffet breakfast available for early traveler.
No fee for room service, all rooms currently being renovated.
If I pay $200. per night or $110. the service should be the same 707 treats you like part of the family.
Enjoyed my 2 night stay and would come again.
Recommend to anyone.

Stayed in the bottom rooms that we think were affected by the floods. The rooms were very old, the bathrooms prehistoric. The staff were friendly, and the rooms you look at near reception look good, however the rooms "out the back" are a different matter. Due to the lack of accomodation in town, there is not much choice if you dont book ahead.

Room Tip: ask for one of the newer rooms

Well from the moment I walked through the door the people at reception treated me very nicely. They were helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable with air conditioning and austar.The motel also serves wonderful meals too, and in the morning we were treated to a free buffet breakfast which was nice. Other than that I would recomend any traveller or family to stay at this motel.

Well,I stayed there for one night only but it was not too bad....The service at reception was casual which was good to me....my room was ok but there was remote control for the air-conditioning system.Other than that I recommend this motel to friends who do not book their accommodation in advance.

Emerald has become the boom town due to the mining industry, and prices have inflated accordingly. If one does not book ahead in a town like this, the choices are limited.

Plus:
One of the cheapest motels in Emerald
It does have Austar
The reception was friendly

Negative:
Its rough.
Rooms are aged and worn, very 70's style
Bedding needed replacing in my room, it looked and felt nearly as old as the motel

This is a motel for the worker, not the tourist. Its an aging 70's style motel, with many, many repairs needed to justify spending the $80 to stay here.

Would I return? No, there are many better motels in town.
