Wonderful people run this place. Everything is no-problem and can be fixed. Are you going on a multi day tour to Fraser Island? Pialba Motor Inn could be the best choice - because they will try their best to accomodate your stuff while you are away on the island. The Motor Inn itself: Great pool and spa area with a... More

We almost missed staying here due to last minute booking. Fortunately there was a cancellation and Joanne from Pialba booked us in. Very friendly and helpful Joanne makes the stay a breeze. On the last day, we had a early morning tour and need in-room breakfast earlier than usual serving hours. No question asked and we have a breakfast booked!!... More

The staff are very welcoming and friendly, the rooms were well appointed and quiet. We were travelling with a group of girls and were surprised we could not here them in the next room! The pool was sensational and the spa was also great. The grounds were well maintained and they have a fabulous BBQ area just near the pool.... More

I came from America to visit Australia and found Pialba Motor Inn to be the best place I could have hoped to stay at throughout my trip. It was the perfect mixture of a fun and hospitable environment. It had a beautiful pool area, amazing rooms, great service, and excellent breakfast & Dinners. It's ran by the most wonderful people...

We chose this motel for accommodation where we could have a couple of rooms that were close to our family who live in Hervey Bay. (Here for a Christmas reunion). The friendliness of the owners, the neat and clean rooms, the lovely grounds and very clean pool area were all welcome additions to our stay. Value for money we highly... More

Joanne's lovely Motor Inn is a small, basic but clean and comfortable motel. It is located a little outside of Hervey Bay but the centre is just not worth visiting. The rooms have everything you need, it is a quite place hence the motorway nearby. Especially the pool and spa area with Buddha theme is an oasis of calmness. And... More

Great Motor Inn located on one of Hervey Bays major roads, but with suprisingly very little traffic noise. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Lovely quite motel. On the main road & easy to find. However, no road noise. The managers are very lovely. After returning home & realizing I had left my SD card behind, I called them & Jo had found it & we made arrangements to have it returned to me. Highly recommended.

Our short stay (2 nights) at Pialba Motor Inn was very enjoyable. The owners were very kind and helpful hosts. Everything was clean & homely in the large appartment including bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and all usual associated facilities. The terrace with outdoor set joining our appartment to the garden would have been more enjoyable if some light division allowed privacy... More
