I was impressed with the size of our room. Very clean & quiet. All staff were very helpful & courteous. I do not like the shared balcony idea. I was annoyed that the person next door kept walking past our sliding door on his cell phone & peering in. All in all, I was happy with our 3 day stay.

Excellent location, clean spacious, no - MASSIVE - room with delightful staff (so friendly and helpful) and most importantly, a comfortable bed! I was booked in by my company's travel booking agent and wasn't expecting too much, but was impressed by the size of the room. The shared balcony is a great idea for those who might have a couple...

We stayed at the Ambassador Motor Lodge over this past weekend - 13/2 to 15/2/2015. Darlene the manager couldn't have been more welcoming or more helpful. Our room was clean, comfortable and surprisingly spacious. We ordered large Australian breakfast from the menu for Saturday and it arrived dead on time - hot and more than enough for the both of...

A simple motel with Wifi right across from the beach. The best feature of this Motel is that it is across from the beach. It is close to a Woolworths. The location is a bit far from some of the better food options further South and the Bus stops running at ~5:30pm and Taxis are expensive. The Taxi ride from... More

This is a neat and well presented establishment with an abundance of friendly helpful staff to assist you. The little restaurant produces amazing home styled cooked meals, good value for money. I will be recommending this establishment to all that travel to Hervey Bay. Thank you for the great stay Darlene and Staff.

This property was well presented, had a great stay with value for money. The housekeeping team really went out of their way to explain the local attractions. Right across the road from the beach and walking distance to the water park.

Stayed here at the end of November 2014, the room had an unpleasant odour that was noticeable as soon as we entered. We found someone's shoes in the wardrobe, clearly it had been a while since the cleaners opened that cupboard door. When the toilet was flushed water continued to run for about 10 minutes after (most annoying at night... More

Right opposite the beach, this motel has everything that is required - good breakfasts, on site restaurant and handy to Woolies, Coles and the RSL. Clean room, good size (I was given a family room due to heavy bookings), quality toiteteries. Staff were friendly and helpful. Well priced.
