Motel98 is in a fantastic position, walking distance to great eateries, shopping and right on the river. This is not 5 star accommodation, but is excellent for a clean, comfortable, affordable stay. We needed to be in Rockhampton for the weekend and loved our stay and would definitely return.

Our room was extremely comfortable and had been updated...our bed was a delight after a long day on the road. Loved the revamped bathrooms with massive rain shower head!! Had everything we needed for our short stay in Rocky.

This motel is right beside the river, only a short walk from the CBD and other nearby Hotels and eating places. However, the Motel also has it's own restaurant, which looks out over the river, has indoor or outdoor seating, and serves wonderful food. The location (off the main highway through down) means that it is nice and quiet.

I can highly recommend this central motel in Rockhampton. Right from entering, the very helpful and friendly Mum and daughter team made us feel extremely welcome, helping us find out about Rodeo at nearby Great Western Hotel (go if you can). The room was immaculate, spacious and very clean. Modern and bright, we could not fault our nights sleep there....

Didnt spend long enough to use the restaurant - the motel is located in a good position; car park is a wee bit tight for larger vehicles. Good value for money - clean fresh room - good for working in - keep up the good work 98.

Easy check-in by welcoming staff. Our room was clean and comfortable, nice updated bathroom, air conditioned, rear door to gardens and pool was a bonus. The highlight though was the wonderful restaurant attached to the motel, Restaurant 98. Nice atmosphere, the service was good and the food was absolutely delicious. Great menu, great chef. Breakfast overlooking the Fitzroy River was...
