The managers/hosts made our stay such a very enjoyable experience. We were made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were tastefully decorated and they were the cleanest motel rooms I have ever stayed in and we have travelled extensively. Best of all the place just had a lovely friendly atmosphere.

Can't recommend the Jackaroo enough! Don't bother looking elsewhere, do yourself a favour and just book with the Jackaroo. I stay here constantly so I know. I don't have any negative comments. Easy access for your vehicle, rooms are spacious, beds are comfy, amenities are up to date, nice and clean!

Spent a weekend at this motel in may with a group of friends, the management went above and beyond to make us welcome and cater for our needs, the motel is super clean and has everything you could possibly need. If your travelling to Mareeba stay at the Jackaroo defiantly a 5 star review.

If you're on a Griswold's family type holiday this will suit perfectly....if a motel adventure isn't on your itinerary keep driving and give this place a miss. Everything is from the 80's including the lumpy pillows, ugly bed spreads and breakfast room service door. There are other clean places to stay a lot better value for money. Get me outa...
