The name of the place under-sells it, I think. I paid for a garden room but was upgraded to a sea view It was more of a holiday unit than a simple motel room - with a separate sitting room, and a well-equipped kitchenette. The price ($125) was higher than a typical motel too, perhaps, but justified by the amenities... More

As the title says, great value, perfectly clean and the rooms facing the harbour / beach are the pick. We think most do anyway. Friendly reception with information on the area. A vending machine for snacks and an outdoor area for gatherings. Located in the town centre within a hundred meters of a great local tavern for meals etc. Opposite... More

Stop at this place overnight. The room are clean and large but your normal hotel rooms. The best thing about this hotel is the service and peaceful surroundings. The pub that is only a short walk up the road services real good food. The is a Beach and play area for the kids about 300 meters up the road.

Bowen is a town with beautiful beaches but you would never know unless you divert off the Bruce Highway and have a look. The Motor Inn is modern, clean, and well maintained and you can sit in front of most units and enjoy the view of the sea, and harbour. The bedroom is air conditioned, but not the living area...

We stayed here and we were not at all disappointed. Great welcome, Wonderful room. Kitchenette. Very clean. Everything that one could want. The shower water ran the wrong way but that can be controlled easily. We were impressed for sure. Walk across the paddock at front of motel to the beach and enjoy a stroll there.
