we had the ocean view room and it was roomy and clean and up to date. the location was excellent as it was right on the forshore / boardwalk. plenty of places to eat all within walking distance, lots of activates along the foreshore if u have kids, free water park etc.

Going by the pictures posted of the rooms by other guests, there seems to be 2 different types of rooms at this place; old and ancient budget rooms and then a renovated section. I wish I had taken pictures now, but our room was nothing like that pictured, our room was old and out dated with a 1950's bathroom that... More

Fantastic location, stumbled upon this motel opposite the rockpool 's in Townsville, very clean, has everything you need, didn't have to ask for plates ect, all provided. Took a swim in their pool, slightly elevated to catch the breeze. We will be coming back to this one. Lovely reception.

This Motel seems to be in the process of renovating - our room was mid process - the bed and bedside tables appeared new but the remainder of the room was very dated. Clean and functional- aircon, TV, lights all in working order. The best feature of Shoredrive is the location, right on the Rock Pool end of the Strand,... More

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.
