This was one of the dirtiest motels I have ever had the displeasure to stay in. The website shows a clean Meditteranean style motel and because we were from NSW we expected what we saw on the website to be true. IT WAS NOT!!!! My husband and I stayed 2 nights and never will we do so again, even if... More

I let someone else book for me is the only excuse I have for not listening to what others have said here! 1960 this place might have been OK but now is very, very run down. Wooden steps rotted, rutted dirt driveway, park at your own risk in very limited parking. Not brave enough to swim in the pool. Rubbish... More

Wanted somewhere for one night on Buderim hill close to a party so searched online, phoned and booked. Should have twigged when we drove up, this place needs renovating with a bulldozer. Room was clean, but, ugg. Seriously, bulldoze and rebuild, its awful.

What a shock when we got here, room smelt like cigarettes, air conditioner disgusting filthy, went to reception to change room gave us 2 options, not much better than the 1st room. This place is a dump and should be shut down.... More

We stayed here for a wedding in Buderim several years ago (before I was on Trip Advisor otherwise...) and it was feral. Things haven't improved. There was sand in my bed, sand! I hadn't been to the beach, not my sand. Revolting. The bathrooms were filthy and barely functioning. The whole place was dirty, falling apart/broken and in the need... More

This is the worst place my family have ever stayed at! I booked online based on the photos on their website and the lack of choices in Buderim. We didn't check in until 9pm, and with two small children it was too late to do anything about it. The room was filthy, mini fridge door was stuck together with sticky... More
