Great value for the price. Sure, if you want 5 star luxury, this isn't for you - find somewhere else- at a lot higher price! Bedding clean and comfortable. Room clean though dated - but as you would expect. No noise problem - but no live music when i stayed, if there was music on i would probably be listening to it rather than trying to have an early quiet night. Loved lady at reception was really helpful ( I hadn't realised bookings were on line only ) All in all, if i need a cheap convenient place to stay in Mackay, I'll be back Thanks7

2/10 Poor

I love a dingy pub.. I don’t have high standards and this joint still didn’t meet them. The bed was torn and looked like it had STIs. Room smelled bad and had no windows. No hot water. Yikes.

10/10 Exceptional

Stayed twice now. This is the best budget accommodation in Mackay. As long as you've got realistic expectations of a hotel at this price point, you will be nicely surprised by how good it actually is. The beds are comfortable, the air conditioners and the kettle work, and the showers are hot. How much more do you need? A centralised location? You can't get much more central than this. Pop outside, turn left and take 20 odd steps and you're right on the main drag with restaurants, Night Owl convenience, major banks, and a very nice public library with free wi-fi and power points. And the Greyhound intercity bus stop is just 3 blocks away.

2/10 Poor

Didn't uphold booking due to discriminating against medical condition, didnt get any clear answers on how to process refund, and refused a place to stay for the night after insisting you can only book online then after refusing service after paying and no answer on a refund because it wasn't booked through "them" asked if there is any way to pay at the desk then book online, nope, funny thing is we had to speak louder to each other each time a drink was Spilled and smashed by the intoxicated people in the bar let in by them happily, so Intoxication isn't a issue there and yet that's the reasoning I got when they refused accommodation, still waiting on the bank to process refund I let everyone know to not go there, because if you rock up with a medical condition where you're not even allowed to drink and your weak on your feet and think out loud to yourself then no accommodation service is provided to you. Waste of time and lies the whole way through on the booking site as well, wanted $99 at first then bumped it down to $79, still way too much for "budget" accommodation, i wonder if I was actually drinking and intoxicated in their bar throwing them money all night like the party that was being held there, how easy would it be to get a nights stay there, probably would be extremely easy I bet. Thanks McGuires for this, ruined any good name they have left about themselves. It's too difficult to get a refund on Expedia and McGuires gives appalling services anyway. Won't be back

It's an old building in need of upgrading but would be a shame if it was made too contempory.
