I stayed one night in a double room ($109 for the night). The room (and bathroom) looked recently renovated, it was clean and comfortable. It was an easy walk to the Mooloolaba Marina and Esplanade and everything they have to offer. Although one side of the motel is on a busy road, it was still quiet.

Great service, excellent accommodation for a budget price. Can't recommend this place enough! Everything you need for a budget price, including wifi (paid), foxtel, bar fridge, and a comfortable bed. A very clean and tidy motel only a short walk from Mooloolaba beach. What more could you want!

I stayed here for 1 night as I was due to go into surgery for a broken ankle. I cannot begin to say how hospitable and friendly the staff/managers were. As I am on crutches, they made sure that I was comfortable, offered me a later check out due to my appointment not being until lunch time and even offered... More

I stayed here during the Easter NSW/QLD school holidays when most beachside accommodation is priced through the roof. If you want fancy, then look elsewhere, but if you want practical, clean, comfortable accommodation in walking distance to shops, beaches, bars, etc, then The River Esplanade Motel is a winner. Parking is off-street which is good, it's a 3-5 min walk... More

Basic motel but clean, well priced and in a reasonable location within easy walking distance to surf club, beach and restaurants. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Manager was friendly. Would definitely return.

The people who run this motel have obviously put a lot of work into making it a comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay. We stayed in a chalet-style room where we could park our car right outside. The room was simply furnished, including a tv, aircon and coffee-making facilities. The bathroom was modern and very clean. The motel itself... More

Only staying one night and didn't book ahead as we were a bit worried by one of the previous reviews about cleanliness. We needn't had worried, but just in case asked if we could see the room before committing (stayed in room number 4) very clean throughout, freshly painted, linen very clean and even shower head spotless. Really can't fault... More
