This motel is well situated to the central business area and close to large shopping malls. Not overly far from the beach, but quite a drive to the marina area. The room had almost everything you would want and was clean but just has the atmosphere of an old style motel. Had a well stocked mini-bar, a limited number of... More

This is your basic motel room, but the rooms were clean and the location was good for accessing shopping and meals nearby. There was free wifi, and while the staff member got it fixed, it did not work the next time we tried to access it. The staff were very accommodating, suggesting things to do in the area and they...

Dear Wazza Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that you have taken 9 MONTHS to write this but said nothing on check out. In recent months we have had the WIFI upgraded so now it works. We apologise that your your meal was inedible and are truly sorry that your stay with us was such an unpleasant experience.... More

This hotel has plenty of parking and can accomodate large vehicles like a motor home. It is located close to shops and attractions, being only a couple of minutes walk to the beach and to the large stocklands shopping centre. The staff were friendly and the room was clean. Good budget motel!

Stayed as a family in December 2014. The room was very clean and the kids loved the pool. The bed was very comfortable and the linen clean. Not having much knowledge about things to do in the area the lady on reception was very helpful and knowledgeable. She went out of her way to help us coordinate our activities. We... More

Stayed here the night before we left for Fraser Island. We stayed in room 5 which was very spacious and clean. Same for the bathroom. The lady at the reception desk was very friendly and helpful when we asked for directions to a decent restaurant. As we had an early pick up we could not have breakfast, but it can... More

Worst accommodation we have ever stayed in anywhere in the World - quite simply horrendous. Wifi didn't work, the woman on the desk kept giving different excuses for this so we wasted an hour and a half trying to access it - even though she clearly knew that the WIFI didn't work. She even lied by saying it was a... More

First of all - it seems this motel is now called the Econo Lodge, no longer the Comfort Inn. Clean room, exactly what you expect for the price, although the room that my fiancé and I were in seemed to have issues with the plumbing - there were very loud noises in the walls and ceiling which were quite disconcerting....
