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

Ample car parking. Jo cooks an amazing array of dishes which can also be enjoyed in the tropical gardens under the huge Balinese huts. All tour bookings are easily made at reception. There is a well set out business centre incorporated at reception. Value for money stay!
