Good well equipped Motel on the Highway. Close to Bundy and management are pleasant and understanding. This Motel is located close to the small Historical Village and the Palace Hotel memorial in the picturesque main street
- Free Parking
We called in as a last mintue thought, never stayed in Childers before but we were looked after, breakfast was great value and we would stay again, not the Hilton but clean and we still had money in our pockets when we left.
Stopped overnight after perusing several motels in Childers,after a long day driving,but found the room very noisy from the highway traffic,and I think we ended up in a disabled /senior's room(maybe it was my grey hair!) It was a mish mash of colours and grab bars in situ shower and toilet! In it's favour,it did have a toaster and microwave,which we made good use of.Overall found it "just somewhere to lay our heads" The whole place needs a full revamp.Also the price of wifi over the top .....$6 daily.
We spent a night at the Childers Gateway Motor Inn on the way from Mackay to the Sunshine Coast. We booked online without any problems. The check in person was friendly and helpful. Parking right outside our room was handy. Room was very clean with plenty of room for a family of 4. TV in main room is mounted too far back on top of a cupboard, so it can be difficult to see whole screen(minor problem) The location is on the southern end of town, and we would have rathered a place in town so its closer to walk.(that is the only reason we rated location as average.
Good accommodation. Was able to cater for a large family (2 adults + 3 kids). Neat and clean rooms. Friendly service. Price was good considering it was also Easter holidays. Only negative was the price of wifi for internet - $6 daily, whereas we received free wifi for a week with a hotel we stayed with in Cairns. Would stay there again - recommended.
Staying for 1 night. Room was clean, but had an odour that reminded me of a fumigation smell.
Aircon worked, curtain shut out the light.
Hard to say much about such a basic place.
Their $6 charge for 24 hour 100 meg wifi internet seemed steep, especially considering their rate of $100 which didn't include breakfast.
Bearable if you're passing through or HAVE to stay in Childers.
