Best in Rockhampton
Ideal location within walking distance to CBD and major shopping centre. Rooms are comfortable with the biggest beds in town. Off-street parking is a huge bonus. Continental breakfast is included and the staff are friendly and helpful. We always choose to stay at Motel 98 when in Rockhampton.
Vikki, au2 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
I wouldn't stay here again..... way over priced for what it was. the bathroom was so small you couldn't move in it, it was terrible, if you were a bigger person you wouldntve been able to get in there. The sink tap was all loose & wobbled around. The pool was only 1/2 full and gathering by the deadbolts and locks its a pretty terrible neighbourhood. I paid online & when we arrived the receptionist took my cc number for consumables to which there wasn't any! Very disappointed for the money we paid.
cherie, au1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Adequately equipped but noisy surroundings
Ground floor room provided. However after a few mins of checking in, I noticed that I could easily hear conversation from adjoining rooms. This was the case early morning as well, causing disturbed sleep. Mentioned this to the host who was apologetic and said that this was due to the connecting door between rooms. In future guests expecting a peaceful night should be forewarned if they are assigned such rooms. Not fair to pay this much and expect a nosiy environment. Also stained kettle in the room needs replacement. On a positive note, the restaurant severs good steak.
