We chose Shelly beach because it was dog friendly and for it's location, but we didn't expect such homely, friendly accommodation suitable for overnight or longer stays. We are a family with young kids and usually stay in a caravan park but our 3 night stay at Shelly Beach was both comfortable and memorable. The 2 sisters who run the... More

We have stayed at this motel twice now and would stay again. The rooms arent brand new but its right across from the water and the footpath down to all the shops etc. it is a bit of a walk though so if you dont like to walk then would recomend driving! The rooms offer some cooking facilities plus there... More

Motel is on Esplanade close to a range of restaurants so a good location. It is an old motel that has a partial make over. Don't stay here if you can't cope with mosquitoes or flying insects - only some screened windows. None on bathroom louvres that cannot be closed. Also, noise from adjacent rooms through thin walls.

here again - the street noise was the most annoying thing. especially sad given that all the rooms overlook the road - so we cant recommend rooms that could be more quite than others. Not that close to most restaurants - a bit more than 1,5 km (close enough if you decide to drive, though) On the contrary - the... More

This was a great place to stay. Rooms are average, but clean and with a kitchenette. The hosts were friendly, helpful, and overall fantastic. Get that great small town comfort. Laundry is available. Across the street is beach access for a nice stoll along the water. Sunsets are amazing here. It's centrally located, short drive to plenty of restaurants to... More

Our family of 6 booked 2 rooms in January this year on our trip from Sydney to Darwin. The motel is a lil dated in its decor and if you are looking for luxury you will probably be disapointed. We were looking for a cheap place for one night and it had everything we needed, there was even a bbq... More

We stayed at the Shelly Beach motel the night before & after our Fraser Island trip and it ticked all the boxes. The rooms were all individually furnished to a lovely cosy standard, it is clear that the owners take real pride in their appearance. Everything was clean and nothing was too much trouble - we were even allowed to... More

My husband and I only stayed here one night but we really enjoyed it and we wished we could have had longer. We had a top (3rd) floor 1 bedroom unit which had a very private balcony overlooking the esplanade and beach. The weather was unfortunately quite Rainey but we enjoyed a wine on the balcony and watching the world... More

Stayed at this motel for 4 nights in January 2013. Motel has a nice friendly atmosphere. Rooms are basic but clean and spacious. Tours from Fraser Island pick up from this motel. Nice restaurants within walking distance and best of all the beach at a stones throw away!
