Wanted somewhere for one night on Buderim hill close to a party so searched online, phoned and booked. Should have twigged when we drove up, this place needs renovating with a bulldozer. Room was clean, but, ugg. Seriously, bulldoze and rebuild, its awful.

Playing 2 day golf tournament at headland golf club, needed a place nearby to stay. Photos looked great. What a shock when we got here, room smelt like cigarettes, air conditioner disgusting filthy, went to reception to change room gave us 2 options, not much better than the 1st room. This place is a dump and should be shut down. Would never stay her again.

We stayed here for a wedding in Buderim several years ago (before I was on Trip Advisor otherwise...) and it was feral. Things haven't improved. There was sand in my bed, sand! I hadn't been to the beach, not my sand. Revolting. The bathrooms were filthy and barely functioning. The whole place was dirty, falling apart/broken and in the need of a good clean and a vacuum.

A couple of months ago we had a family gathering in Buderim and things haven't improved. The only reason people stay here is the lack of options, certainly no repeat customers. I'd camp before I stayed here again. By far the worst hotel I've stayed anywhere in the world.

I would like to voice my disappointment with this motel, Dirty, noisy, no shampoo! SMELLS!! No way is that place worth 105 dollars! We left and found another hotel as fast as we could! We were also in a rush and like the others below and didn't do a review search.... The place is a total dump and needs knocking down and re building as buderim is lovely!

Booked on-line based on photos. Wanted to stay at Buderim, should have stayed at moolooloobah. Room old, just about needed a four wheel drive to get down to the parking at rear of motel , would not recommend this place to anyone, keep driving past. sorry I did not read the reviews first. Helen D.

This is the worst place my family have ever stayed at! I booked online based on the photos on their website and the lack of choices in Buderim. We didn't check in until 9pm, and with two small children it was too late to do anything about it. The room was filthy, mini fridge door was stuck together with sticky tape. Bugs everywhere, dead and alive. No wifi although they advertise they have it, barely any mobile reception and no phone in the room. Seedy looking men hanging around smoking outside the room, windows can't close so room was always smokey. Only positive was the staff were friendly. I agree you really should sleep in your car before staying at this place.
