Stayed here for one night on my way to Brisbane. Extremely clean in fact probably the cleanest motel I've ever stayed in, for a one bedroom room it had plenty of space, the customer service was fantastic and it was in a good location. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at Coast Inn for 2 weeks over Christmas/New Year period. VERY clean. Great hosts...a lovely family. Cleaners very helpful and friendly. Perfect position...very close to main centre and RSL. Stayed up stairs. Lovely and quiet. Surprised at the price. Great value for money. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks to all.

We stayed here for one night. When the guy told us the price we thought this is going to be bad but we needed a bed as it was late. When I opens the door to the room I was really surprised the room was twice the size we had ever had and very clean and modern. Don't pass this... More

We had a wonderful stay, the rooms were very clean and spacious. The service was better than we have ever experienced, the owners went above and beyond to help and make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you and we will see you again next time! 😊

We found the motel very comfortable and the owner very pleasant. The only thing I might mention is a few more teabags and sugar would have been nice. Very clean and well appointed.Would have no hesitation is recommending this motel to friends.

This was an excellent motel! Our room was large and spotlessly clean. The owners were lovely and the room even came with a microwave and toaster on top of the usual motel room facilities. We were given real milk in a jug instead of the little long life milk you usually get and we had undercover parking!

Great little place with staff who actually care about the person staying, lovely surprise. Clean and comfortable. Option of continental breakfast delivered the previous evening ensures a healthy start to the day with no need for Maccas :) to be first port of call when leaving. I had the economy room at the front of the complex, no issues with... More

We can only give our highest recommendations to this amazing place! The first day the weather was really really bad, so we wanted to check out a day earlier but we had already paid for everything. Despite this Nathan and his wife allowed us to check out and gave us the money back. However, the weather changed and we changed... More
