“Great location, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2014

Very clean and spacious studio apartments, with a kitchen and balcony overlooking the lagoon (with direct passage there). Quite, but right on the Main Street.
The staff were kind and helpful. There is laundry and booking service on site.
Very recommend.

Stayed November 2014, traveled as a couple

Right next to the lagoon pool and park, and in the centre of Airlie Beach town. So for location this place is excellent.

Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, really made our stay wonderful.

The room was ok for a few days stay. Very spacious but could do with just a bit of love which would make it a lot more comfortable:
- a bit industrial, bare breeze blocks, light switches in puzzling locations and not enough power sockets
- lacked any meaningful storage space for clothes/objects other than a freestanding clothes rack
- bathroom again lacked space/hooks/shelving to put down toiletries and the shower had tiles falling apart
- very loud aircon, again just a little bit industrial

Such a great stay here. So central, great location, quiet and secure. Comfy beds, nice and clean. Nice kitchenette area with communal washer dryer. The staff were so lovely and they made us feel so welcoming and were available for any advice, staff so accommodating for a late arrival and personal access to the beach. Would not hesitate to recommend this place.

Absolutely enjoyed our stay! this motel locates at the centre of the main street. you have awesome night clubs and restaurants around where you stay. lagoon is only behind the motel, feels like you have a massive swimming pool in your own backyard. room is extremely clean and comfy! eventhough we didnt get the upstairs room with balcony, but downstairs room was quiet and big! we had our car parking right in front of our room, and the motel will locked the parking gate over the night for security which was perfect! staff at reception was friendly and helpful, we really appreciated the hospitality! such a gem in airlie beach! we will definately come back and hopefully next time we can stay in the room with belcony! thank you!

We were very upset & disappointed with management's failure to respond when another hotel guest completely parked us in and we couldn't get out to be at the cruise terminal on time. The 'after hours' number just kept going to message bank. No one was on site. The man at reception didn't seem to care when I informed him of the issue at reception later that day. Also, a giant cockroach crawled across the apartment floor within 10 minutes of our arrival. The location is good and the lady I spoke to on the phone when booking was nice, which is why I've given any stars.

Room Tip: Don't park in the guest carpark if you need to get your car out at any specific time.
