“Go for the premium rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We have stayed here twice in recent months , the first time was in a premium room and we were blown away with it . The next time we tried a budget room but it was hard to believe it was the same motel , the room was of much older design . Biloela is spread out and driving is best to get into main street as motel is a few blocks away from shops . We will be staying in the premium rooms on our next trip through biloela .

Room Tip: pay the extra for a quality room .

A business acquaintance recommended this motel and I was pleasantly surprised that it was of a decent standard. The cost was a little pricey but that happens when one travels solo. The check-in staff were very helpful though.

Had forgotten to book and found the Sun Valley Motel on the internet. Was an excellent choice. Though compared to large city prices it's a little pricey but comparable to others in Biloela. Leon was very welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. The room was very clean and as we had one of the newer one very modern. My daughter stayed in one of the older ones and though not as modern just as clean and comfortable.
The bed was amazing and we had one of the best night sleeps in any motel we have stayed at but realize that the firm mattress might not suit everyone. We had a room at the back and it was quiet with no traffic noise what so ever.
The one let down was the shower. Plenty of hot water but no pressure and many leaks so water kept squirting everywhere. Not a major problem as we only stayed one night but would have been frustrated if it had been for a couple of days.
Overall I would recommend this motel to everyone as the service was 100%.

Room Tip: If possible get one of the rooms at the back as there is no traffic noise at all.

Booked in after finding this place on the internet. The Manager, Leon, was helpful and accommodating over the phone and provided a quick check in without a myriad of questions. The room is very spacious, has a great bathroom and all the amenities for this type of property. The bed was a little hard but that's really down to personal preference. Would recommend this property as a good spot to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms on one level and as I was situated towards the back of the property, road noise wasn't...

We visit Biloela frequently and have stayed in most of the motels. Sun Valley Motel has been the best by far, we see no reason to stay elsewhere! Fantastic rooms, immaculately cleaned and free WIFI. But best of all was the service, the owners/managers live on site and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable! Will always stay at Sun Valley Motel on our visits to Biloela!

Our stay at the Sun valley motel was fantastic. Owners Sam and Leon were incredibly helpful and friendly. The room we stayed in was modern and luxurious as well as very clean. There is no doubt we will stay at the Sun valley motel again next time we are back in Biloela!

The old saying of 'never judge a book by it's cover' is proven true in this case.

Excellent bed, ultra clean and neat. Excellent lighting and free internet access. Well located and a short stroll from excellent dining (across the highway) and less than 50 metres.

We had a room at the back and found it very quiet even though it is located on the Dawson Highway (57-59 Dawson Highway, Biloela)

Hosts, Leon and Sam Christainsen, absolutely delightful and extremely helpful. Next time in 'Bilo', will certainly look to stay here again.

Highly recommended accommodation in Biloela

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are quieter. Has car wash bay.
