“Central, good value, clean, friendly & helpful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2010

Stayed here 5 nights on a short trip from England to visit my husband's Uncle in CARV Yeppoon.

Yes the decor looked a bit 'tired' but we had no complaints at all. It was a very friendly and helpful place to stay - we were advised about places to visit etc and a posy of flowers was put on our table which was a nice touch. Also it was located centrally with easy accdess to shops etc so self catering wasn't a problem and near to takeaways and restaurants. It was easy to walk to the beach and surrounding area.

We enjoyed our stay and will return if we visit Yeppoon again - and we hope we do!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2010

I had lived in Yeppoon previously so I knew where this motel was. The motel is in the heart of the shopping heart of Yeppoon with short walks to the beach, restaurants and shops. I was in room 4 and it definitely had the best shower I have ever experienced in a motel, plenty of room, plenty of hot water and a great flow. I would certainly recommend this motel to travellers enjoying a stopover in Yeppoon.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2009

We chose the Sail Inn as it had a good write up in the Jason’s guide and whilst it was nothing to look at in or out it was only AU$85 and had everything we wanted.

The parking is partly undercover outside you room, outside there is also a small table and couple of chairs for each room.

Our room had a double and a single bed, small table, 3 chairs, TV, Austar (with most of the channels), Toaster, Kettle, Fridge and AC unit. Whilst the bed was only a double we both slept well so it must have been supportive and comfy. When we arrived we turned the heating on and let the room warm up, we then turned the AC off as you would never sleep with the noise it made. But it wasn’t needed for us. My tip for a good night’s sleep would be to turn the fridge off as our had only a small jug of milk and a couple of beers in and the freezer section was noisy when it was running as you could hear the metal contracting as it cooled – maybe it would be different if you had things in it.

The bathroom like the room was a concreted block work walls with modern toilet and plenty of towels. The shower was really warm although it had one of those curtains that liked to stick to you whilst the water was running.

Considering the location is right on the main high street in Yeppoon the room was really quiet and other than needing cosmetically updating it was fine. The OH rated it better than our previous night’s motel.
