The motel is in a good location; Nick's IGA and the Mater Hospital are not far away. I stayed in one of the budget rooms for $65 - good value. I wasn't sure how long I would be staying at the motel so was booking from night to night. Missed out on a budget room on my third night but... More

It is about a 20 minute walk to main restaurants, etc. The owners Zeny and Ken , are great and friendly. She was fantastic. The rooms are... More

The room was the cheapest in Mackay by far, although not advertised online, so the only reason I found it was by chance driving by. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable and airconditioning was amazing. Sure they could do with a little modernisation, but for a night or two they are brilliant value for money.

First we were interested because of the price, budget room for only $80. Cheaper than the other motels in mackay. Surprisingly clean & tidy room, even with a sealed toilet seat,wrapped clean glass and mugs. Laundry facility is also great, has a place to hang dry the washed clothes. Great for stop overnight. Definitely will be back next time.

Blue Ribbon was the first one that still had any vacancies. It is just a simple Motel but it was clean, had air-conditioning, free... More
