well located and the staff are very, very helpful. Room too small, bathroom with the minimum necessary and poorly organized in terms of space, kitchen practically on top of the beds. Very hot room in which only the fans work.

RECEPTION: + Cat was very helpful arranging a trip to Whitehaven and a sailboat to Black Island and generally recommending activities to fit time constraints and interests. - Upon arrival on a Sunday, no one was at reception, so we had to wait around a bit for someone to show up. LOCATION: + Walking distance to the marina from which... More

I picked this hotel based on the good reviews. If you are in a budget it could be a good alternative because of it's location. Personnel is very attentive and helpful. They were super nice to us. However, for us, rooms were very small and dated. Thankfully, we brought our toiletries because there was no shampoo nor conditioner. Just a... More

We stayed here with our 2 dogs after being on the road for two days, and it was a great little break for us. Motor Lodge is misleading, this is not a brick box with a car park but a small resort up on a hill. The rooms are fresh and clean, we had a deck to relax on and... More

The location was perfect, very close to the restaurants, bars, travel agencies, lagoon.... The hill wasn't the worst hill to walk up in Airlie Beach :) The staff were friendly. We stayed for 9 nights and being 4 people inside the room, I was expecting someone coming to do a proper cleaning once or twice during our stay, but it... More

This is definitely not a Tripadvisor 4 dots hotel as we were led to believe, it's more of a 2.5-3 dots hotel. I've since come to find out after staying in hotels for 4 weeks in Australia that a number of the hotels that were booked in North America (NA) before we left, were over-rated compared to our NA standard....

We have been travelling for 7 weeks through Australia and slept in 31 hotels. I will not bore you by describing all of them, I only post about a few outliers. We stayed in Airlie Beach for one night before going to the Whitsundays. We did not expect too much from the Airlie Beach Motor Lodge and were very pleasantly... More

Although it is not far up a steep hill, the car did notice the slope up to reception. It is 5 minutes’ easy walk from the strip of restaurants along the beachfront yet still far enough away to be quiet. We used the BBQ facility, a George Foreman style grill which was adequate for us. Everything we needed was supplied... More

Good location being walking distance to Airlie's centre. Definitely in need of a bit of updating. Basically clean but above head height i.e. fans, top of mirror very dusty. Also stained sofa (didn't sit on it). No complimentary shampoo, lotion etc. only soap. Free wifi could only be accessed near reception not in room. Happy with the deal we got... More

I highly recommend this accommodation. It fulfilled all our needs and was conveniently located near to the hub of Airlie activities but with just enough space away from all the action. Our unit was immaculate. Karen is a mine of information on local attractions so consult her before you firm your bookings up.
