I travel all over QLD, NSW and VIC for work and stay in motels several nights a week: this was one of the nicest, well kept rooms I've stayed in. The room was immaculate and modern, the beds were new and comfy, room was well sized for the price and the bathroom was clean and stylish. There was even a... More

Very unimpressive room and not the best service. Tiny swimming pool. Could not connect to wifi, only units closest to the office get it. In my opinion way too much money for poor accommodation and service.

I would recommend this motel for many reasons, the first being great value. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. My room was spacious and had a kitchen area with a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster, complete with crockery and cutlery to self cater. The en suite was very nicely fitted out and had plenty of room, including a... More

It has a fridge and microwave with all the utensils and cutlery you would need to self cater if you wish. The bathroom was very nice indeed, with a very good size shower and instant hot water, nice wash basin and very clean. The... More

We have just spent a week staying at the pacific palms motor inn. Overall the place is clean and tidy in a very central location on the Sunshine Coast. It is what you would expect for a roadside motel but for the price we paid we were happy campers. It is on a busy road across the road from the... More

Friendly reception, new fitout, excellent bed, convenient location (it is a motel and as such it is good to have a car) and some spectacular views of aircraft during the day. There is also a swimming pool which looked good but we didn't get a chance to use.

We only stayed for one night but were pleased with all aspects of the Pacific Palms Motor Inn. The guy on reception was friendly and the rooms were surprisingly spacious and modern; especially given the bargain price of the room. If you are only passing through like us, I recommend the 5 min drive up the coast to Coolum Beach... More

Were pleasantly surprised at the size of room and large bathroom area. Ample kitchenette facilities were provided if you wish to prepare breakfast and tea - only use of a microwave though. Overall the room was very clean, but curtains could do with a spring clean. Great little get away as it is close to a beautiful beach where your... More
