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.

We have just spent a very pleasant and relaxing three nights at this motel. We had initially booked a self contained garden view room but as the motel was only lightly booked we were upgraded to an ocean view room for no additional cost. We had room number one which being right at the end of the block is very... More

Huge rooms, clean and peaceful right on the water near the best pub in town. This was a welcome surprise after planning to stay in Airlie Beach, we made teh right decision to keep driving an get a much better room in a better location for half the price. Without backpackers partying all night.
