“Clean and Comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2014

Six of us (3 couples) arrived at 8:30 pm (or so) on a Sunday. Allan was so welcoming! Knowing that we'd driven for a few hours, and that not too many places were open in town, he ordered pizzas for us, put them on our bill, and made us feel entirely welcome.

Our rooms were clean, comfortable, amenities included. Wifi was free. We enjoyed the pool too.

Townsville is an easy downhill walk with lots of dining options. Allan recommended Benny's Hot Wok. We did enjoy it. It's a bit of a haul uphill but not too bad.

One feature we most enjoyed at the Summit Motel was the outdoor seating. This arrangement encourages guests to spend time outside, to meet each other, and gives the motel a very family-friendly feel.

We were all very pleased that we chose the Summit Motel for two nights on our vacation.

We just checked in to the Summit Motel in Townsville. I booked this place based on other reviews on Trip Advisor and I am super happy!

We arrived way before the normal check-in time in the hope that the room would be ready… I did not have high hopes as I have tried this before with other (expensive 5 star hotels) places and never get the room early BUT this time it was not a problem!

The lady at reception was very nice and welcoming and we also got a warm and happy welcome from Russell the resident dog! (he is very cute).

The motel is less than a 10 minute drive from the airport and very close to shopping and eateries. The complex is very nicely set out, clean and with a very inviting pool area. There was plenty of comfortable parking right near our room.

Our room is great. Very clean and nicely furnished with very comfy beds made up with super fresh linen and towels. The bathroom is very clean and roomy and has all the amenities you need… hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner and body soap.

The motel is set high up on a hill so you get a really nice breeze and there is also a bit of a view from our room out to the ocean.

I'm super happy with this choice and doubt that anyone would be disappointed with booking this Motel. Good value for money.

Very clean and comfortable accommodation with welcoming friendly hosts. The motel has a pleasant pool which was great for the kids to cool off in after a day out. The location is excellent, a quick walk downhill to the beautiful Strand for dinner, drinks or ice creams. All round a good value motel room where we will return to and recommend family and friends to stay.

Room Tip: I would recommend upstairs

We chose this place for a two night stay on the basis of trip advisor reviews and we were very pleased with the choice. We liked the position near the bottom of Castle Rock and not too far from the Strand. The motel garden is attractive, we chose a ground floor room because of heavy suitcases, the room was a good size, bed comfortable, and even though we didn't expect it we had a microwave in the room. Wifi worked although it wasn't a strong signal, it improved outside the room. It isn't far to the shops or to the Strand but it is hilly so a car does help.

The Summit Motel was not new but looked in good condition and the people were welcoming. Our second floor room was very pleasant and spacious. There was security wire on the windows so we were able to have fresh air at night - a bonus for us. There was a large communal balcony so you could sit outside in the sun. Close to town and good with a car, otherwise a steep walk up the hill to the motel.

We stayed here for one night during the school holidays on our way to Cairns. The owners were very friendly and helpful giving us directions to a few places we wanted to see in the short time we were there. We had inter-connecting rooms, each room sleeping four, which gave us more than enough space. We all slept well. Would stay here again if the need arose.

Used Tripadvisor to select this motel for a one night stay in Townsville. It was easy to find and is located near the CBD and the Esplanade. In comparison with others in this price range in Townsville I rate it highly simply because of its location. It's an easy 15 minute walk downhill to the restaurants on The Esplanade but a much longer and challenging return trip on foot up the steep hill. Take the car unless you're in training! If you need the exercise take a trip to Castle Hill Lookout behind the motel. We were looking for an inexpensive but pleasant one night's accommodation and this budget motel fitted the bill. Although basic and in need of a little brightening up, it was very clean, had a large shower recess with good water pressure and management were very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi was also available and although not the fastest it was adequate. Parking is limited but we didn't experience any problem parking within the complex. It was fairly quiet and away from any main road. Value for money.

Room Tip: We selected a room on the lower level to avoid carrying the suitcases up the stairs. Room 9 is in th...
