“Quaint, Comfortable and Fantastic Owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We stayed at the motor lodge for 6 days. The location it perfect... up off the main strip, but close enough to walk in 5 minutes.

The rooms were very clean! Fresh carton of real milk for your coffee everyday!! The pool was accommodating, quiet and relaxing.

There is lots to do in the Whitsunday's, and the hotel owner is very resourceful in looking into any trips or tours you want to take.
Their variety of rooms makes this a comfortable stay for singles, couples and families.

Downtown their is a lovely lagoon to enjoy, the only one in the Whitsundays!!

Overall this was a fantastic stay... and I would encourage anyone that wants an affordable, accommodating, comfortable, relaxing place to stay.... to check out the Airlie Beach Motor Lodge.

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay at the Lodge. Not only was the room very clean, quaint and relaxing it was also wheelchair accessible which included a roll in shower with bench. The staff were terrific and went above and beyond to assist us with the local sights and attractions. The lagoon and downtown amenities are only 3 minutes walking distance from the lodge. There is a perfect little pool to cool off in and a BBQ to utilize. We highly recommend this accommodation and give it two thumbs up!!!

We were here 2 nights...would have loved to stay longer. This is what a motel/motor lodge SHOULD be. It's small, it's quaint, it's family-run by a family who obviously care, it's comfortable and VERY clean and well situated...what more could anybody want??? The staff have been wonderful. There's a CHOICE between a/c and ceiling fan with big windows open. Coin laundry is available, parking secure, proximity to town ideal and yet it's a quiet place. We have rec'd guest services above & beyond expectations, and the guidance re day trips from here proved perfect. No extra charge for WiFi (regionally temperamental)...any traveller would do well to stay HERE.

Room Tip: upper floor = best views, of course !

After being mucked around with other accomodation in town, we managed to secure a standard queen room here at 7pm at night. The owner wanted to have a chat and showed us the pool and bbq facilities before taking us to our room. The premises was very clean, we had secure parking for our car and we had to only walk 2 min down the road for a nice and cheap meal at down under bar and grill ($12 for a main and drink). The next day the owner was happy to show us through other rooms when we mentioned coming back in the following months. Will definately be staying here again

Fab location, right near everything. Staff are amazing, even dropped us off free of charge to the airport as she said she was going that way anyway. Always up for a chat too. Made you feel very welcome and friendly. Small pool area but open at all times as long as you respect other guests. Perfect for chilling for the day and cooling off. Rooms fully equipped, no cooker or stove though but provide a slow cooker which we used a lot !! House keeping each day, towel on arrival per person for use in the hotel. Can hire snorkel gear etc from hotel at cheap rates. DVD player in rooms too with tv. Free wifi also but only works in the BBQ area which guests can use when ever they want, along with pool table. Great chill out area. Basic rooms, cheap too but worth every penny. Would come back again for sure!

We booked an apartment for one night, and then another night after coming from our sailing trip. We could leave our car and suitcases at the premises, even though we were not staying the night in between. Staff is friendly in general, only the lady that checked us in the first day was very rushed. Didn´t see why as there was nobody else waiting or checking in. The apartments are nice, with a balcony and beautiful bathroom. They are on the small side though, with the kitchenette right next to the bed. To call it an apartment it should have been larger. The swimming pool is beautiful, and we used it quite frequently. Overall, I would stay here again and recommend others to stay here as well.

What can I say, forget the average/poor comments that have been listed on this site, and read the excellent and very good comments, do you your self a favour and stay here.

Airlie Beach Motor Lodge is in an amazing location set in secluded gardens just 200 metres from the Airlie Beach Lagoon, beach and central village. Also I would like to add further this is a truely pet friendly accomodation, as to others that I have been to.

Karen and Lyn and other staff are very friendly and went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable during our stay. Again a very big thanks to Karen and Lyn.

Chris & Angela and a big thanks from Chico
