Arrived in Gladstone early evening. Reception was closed but called the number on the door and Carol answered my call. She showed me to my room and was very friendly and helpful. Woolies is just down the road. Room was very comfortable and clean.

Hi Peter, thanks for your kind review it was great meeting and chatting to you. It is a real advantage living on premises and being available for our arrivals after hours. I also agree with our location being so handy, we are lucky to have so much within a short stroll. I hope to see you in the future should...

I’ve always stayed at Rusty’s when visiting Gladstone, the owners are overwhelming friendly and you are centrally located to everything you need. The accommodation comes with a breakfast pack and for the price you are going to beat the service and the care factor. May I also recommend the Hog’s Breath next door, and the China Gardens in Tank St...

Had the best customer service I have ever experienced. When I left some very important (and expensive) equipment in my room, Carol went out of her way to track me down and organised for the parcels to be sent to me. As I am in quite a remote location this was no small task and saved me a ten hour...

She couldnt do enough for us to make our stay one that we will remember. Great location and would recommend Econo Lodge Rusty's to everyone.
