“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

We stayed one night at the Mooloolaba Motel as a last minute thing. I would have to say I was pleasantly suprised. The rooms are a little dated but both room and bathroom were very clean. We were in room 1 (ground floor closest to the reception). With that in mind (and the fact it is on Brisbane Road) I expected it to be Bright and noisy, however neither was the case. Heavy drapes and the large fence blocked out most of the street light and as with the ceiling fan on, there was surprising little road noice. If you are a light sleeper, take ear plugs and an eye mask just incase the other rooms have different sound quality. The staff were very amiable. The Motel is just over a block from the beach so if you are anything like us and spend most of your time exploring the surronding area (and eating gelato whle strolling the esplanade) then consider this as no frills alternative to the apartments along the front. We will definatey stay here again for out short stays at the beach.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011

We stayed here recently and it is ok. Certainly not the best hotel I have stayed in but not the worst. It is the location of this hotel which is great. Within a short walk to the beach and restaurants. The rooms are clean but small. We could here people going to the toilet in the next room which was bit of a turn off. Also it is right opposite 24 McDonalds. So you could hear drunken people at all hours of the morning heading to Maccas. The pool area is lovely. But it is a little expensive for what it is. I will stay here again but would ask for a room with the balcony.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2009

This a pleasent motel in a beach holiday town, The beach is in walking distance about 300 yards as are restaurants and shops. Reasonably sized rooms with balcony. Good size pool.At A$130 not cheap. Parking outside rooms and internet but it costs. This is one of the more attractive seaside towns on this coast.

  • Liked — close to the beach without the crowds
  • Disliked — not much privacy on the balcony
