We stayed here 2 nights because we dived at the Ex-HMAS Brisbane. Accommodation in this area is quite expensive, so that was why we chose the Moffat Beach Motel. The location of the motel is close to several restaurants, a small grocery store and a gas station. The room was clean but dated. Awful smell coming from the bathroom sink... More

We only stayed here as every where else was booked. I thought it was ok but I will sleep outside in a swag. My wife hated it. Pet friendly means the rooms are used as kennels. All linen is white, so I guess every thing gets bleached. Staff were good but if an Ibis or a franchise motel is available... More

Needed a place that was dog friendly. Not many available in Caloundra, but luckily all we needed was one room. The motel isn't overly flash, but it was clean and close enough to the motorway North. We did think it was a bit rich to be charged $30 per dog extra, but beggars can't be choosers.

The owner is nice and helpful enough, and the rooms are cheap and clean. It's easy to hear the off-key singing from the person next door, the internet connection is free, but terrible because of the brick walls, and there is a cold draft from under the front door. Good hotels are hard to find around this place. Plan ahead.

My brother in law and I stayed the night before the Tough Mudder event and I have no complaints. The Owner was very friendly, was willing to take time to tell me about the surrounding area and answer any questions I had. The rooms were basic but had everything I needed (bed, bathroom and tv) and very comfortable. A short... More

Spent one night here while passing through. Standard sort of motel but clean and tidy. Very friendly owners and free WiFi. Quiet at night and slept well. I liked the location. A few minutes walk to the beach and cafe's and restaurants also close

Rang & made booking; however, no booking was made in their system. Then on check-out was charged $10 extra - even though their prices are clearly listed on their website. Very old style motel. Go somewhere else if you want good service and attention to detail.

Great for small pets. Nothing special but friendly owners, clean and tidy room and surrounds. Great value for money! Just a short stroll to very good cafes and a dog beach. Five minutes drive to central Caloundra.

We came down for the Mooloolaba tri which is 25 mins drive. However you don't need to go to Mooloolaba as you have the very beautiful Moffat beach around the corner with some lovely restaurants to choose from for breakfast or dinner! We brought our red healer with us for a small extra charge it was perfect for what we... More

My sister and I stumbled upon this motel when passing through from cairns to the gold-coast, we were relocating with two small dogs and found pet friendly..I firstly called before arriving to see availability. I spoke to Jane whom I warmed to straight away with her pleasant phone manner. We had to pay a little extra for our pets but... More
