“great for workers , not for holiday”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

my partner is staying at the hotel for 7 weeks work in Emerald. this is not somewhere to stay as a part of a trip but excellent for someone working away from home. the rooms are older style and " no frills". that said they are clean , comfortable and the perfect spot for a worker to lay his head after a long day at work. I felt like I was leaving my partner in good hands.

Motel 707 is in the middle on Emerald , close to everything and clean and tidy. Once you realise your not in Kansas anymore Toto you will learn to appreciate simple pleasures like a comfortable bed and working AC. A big shout out to Julie that has the friendly smile and the reception sorted.

Travelling through to Longreach, we stayed for two nights at Motel 707. Yes, its an old style motel, but has everything you need, with comfort. You can easily walk around town, don't need to drive. The road is busy of a day, quite during the night, that was great. Thanks to all the staff, for your kind service.

Recently stayed here while passing through to rockhampton.. Room was well presented and price was good. Shower was amazing being I'm a little taller then normal. It can get a little noisy with the traffic noise, however I was aware of this when booking and it did faze me 1 bit.
Didn't really get a chance to check out the food side but was directed to a lovely little restaurant down the road.
Would stay there again if the chance arises.

As I sat watching the final of The Block I noticed the faint smell of paint - yes, good finished edges to the paint work, new bed spreads (grey, charcoal & white), new carpet and tiles, new towels......and realized this place had undergone a makeover, too. Thank goodness it had a decent shower so I could wash the shampoo out of my hair - none of those water savers that dribble and take ages to remove the shampoo!! Maybe not on the budget of The Block, but well done for a place of this age. And, for $99 a night I was happy. Helpful staff at reception, too.

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!!!
