Just had a few days in Townsville with my grandchildren. The Shoredrive is an older type motel where rates are reasonable, rooms are clean and spacious, staff very friendly and helpful and location is brilliant! Plenty of eating places nearby and in house, walk to the rock pool and ocean swimming and great pool there. Highly recommend for families.

The room old and the light bulbs are fluorescent. There appear to be wall lice crawling on one of the walls, including the bed touching the wall and the aircon barely functions. As it is currently HOT in the area, the aircon malfunctioning is the worst thing. The wifi is extremely slow and complicated to connect to. Value for money:... More

We stayed in Room 17 which is an older style motel room (no recent renovations or updated furniture besides bed). It was good for the 1 night that we stayed, as we only really needed a bed. We couldn't get the TV to work, tried turning it on with the remote and the button on the TV itself with no... More

Our room was very dated and minimal with open fluorescent bulb over bed. No night stand. Complicated and very limited internet (only one device). Poorly maintained premises. But excellent proximity to safe and inviting shoreline drive area.

I recently enjoyed a week long holiday staying at the Shoredrive Motel. The unit was tastefully renovated and had everything I required which was clean and tidy. I particularly appreciated the quiet air conditioning unit, screened windows with security grill and ceiling fan. The bed was comfortable and environment was quiet despite being in a main road. The location was... More

We spent a long weekend at the Shoredrive on The Strand in Townsville. It has been newly renovated and is looking clean and fresh. Beds were comfy and it had everything we needed. The restaurant on site was very good too. It is a great position for all activities in Townsville.
