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 which does one of the bests all you can eat deals for just $22 per person.
Gladstone is a great place visit, start exploring from Rusty’s ;)

Room Tip: The rooms are all good, no views unfortunately only centrally located to everything you need no driv...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Carol the manager went above and beyond to make my stay a fantastic experience, nothing was too much trouble, the level of service was superb.
The motel is within walking distance to shops, Woolworths supermarket, banks, hotels, and there is also a Thai restaurant within the complex with room charge back, beautiful food.
The room was immaculate and the bed was sooo comfortable with fresh crisp linen etc. A beautiful big pool as well to keep you cool during the hot sweltering days.
Everything I needed was there so I will definitely be returning next time I need a place to stay in Gladstone. Thank you Carol & Brad

Room Tip: I had a room down by the office which was not a problem at all, laundry facilities easily accessible...

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 drive to pick the items up.

Would highly recommenced the lodge.

Stopped 2 nites with grandchildren on way through via train. Carol the manager was fabulous and picked us up from station. Conveniently located could walk to all amenities, rooms clean and kids loved the pool. Free wifi air conditioned and a great reviver stop. And thank you Carol for the lovely sandwiches you packed for our train journey. Will call in again.

It was a pleasure to look after you and the children for those few days, it was lovely to see them enjoying the pool and being able to scoot around the place. I really felt I had made a new friend and look forward to you staying again with us. Easter is a great time in Gladstone with our fantastic Harbour Festival there are so many free events and concerts. Thank you for reviewing us here.

From Jordan to Australia 3 days exhausted and extremely tired my family and I were met by the friendly staff of the Econo Lodge.
Over whelming assistance and helpful advice. Extremely quiet but central to everything.
Wonderful local taxi service to show you around.
If your travelling around, up and down the coast or new to Australia make Gladstone Econo Lodge a priority with the Hogs Breath Cafe right opposite a bonus.
