we had a very relaxing two days in the beautiful rain forest setting..Managers were very friendly and helpful,there is an easy access to the main street via the walking trail. it was well lit so going out for dinner was not a problem The rooms were spacious and very compfortable.
only thing missing was a couple of chairs in the room.
Hope to return

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This motel advertises itself as quiet and it definitely is. The managers are helpful and friendly and the price is acceptable. It is a short walk from the beach and cafes at Mission Beach and is set in shady rainforest type surroundings. However it is let down by the dinginess of the rooms, no windows just an inadequate skylight - so no natural light and very little fresh air. Also the rooms really need a good spruce up and more bench space would not go astray.

We stayed here April 2013 and it was perfect! Apart from great value accommodation with loads of facilities, the owners went out of their way to make us feel at home. The rooms are spacious and most of all clean and tidy, and they offer free wifi to their guests. The location is great too, walking distance (1 min) to the shops and cafes in Mission Beach, but nice and quiet in the evening. We needed to catch the greyhound bus at 3 pm and Bob and Angie let us have a late check out and even drove us to the bus stop. All in all, a very, very pleasant stay.

It was a last-minute booking and for a great price we had a clean room with great facilities. Lovely grounds and easy access to cafes and the beach. Angie was friendly and accommodating and we will definitely stay there again next time we pass through Mission Beach.

As owner of The Rainforest motel, I really appreciate you taking time to write a review. It has been a difficult time for North Queensland since cyclone Yasi two years ago, and comments like yours really help.
I look forward to you coming back and we can help show you more of fantastic Mission Beach.

I have recently made a slow, deliberate journey from Brisbane to Innisfail. Along the way, I have stayed at many motels, backpacker hotels, and pub hotels. My trip was forced to be extended due to cyclones, floods, road/rail closures, and other natural disasters.
Of all the places I stayed, Rainforest Motel was far and away the best! It was very clean, attractively and efficiently laid out, and the grounds are wonderful, quiet, and run by the best management I have seen! With ALL of the positives, it was also one of the most cost-effective places I stayed at, also. The unit offers a microwave, small refrigerator, dishes, and coffee. They have a very clean pool, and each unit has a private outdoor patio.
They do offer free wi-fi, however it was not strong enough to make it to my room.
I would not hesitate to stay here in the future, and would most certainly recommend this motel to any traveller!

Room Tip: If you NEED the wi-fi, you have to have a room close to the office.

I stayed here for a few nights when I was travelling over two months up the east coast of Australia, and it was definitely one of the nicest and best value places I stayed in. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and had everything I needed, including a lovely little outdoor seating area - your very own little bit of rainforest, great for having a cup of coffee and soaking up the sounds of the rainforest- (bring your mozzie spray though). The managers Angie and Bob were warm and friendly, and did everything they could to make my stay enjoyable. They helped organise trips, and even introduced me to their friends, for some very welcome socialising as a solo traveller! Mission Beach is a lovely little town. I instantly felt very at home there, and didn't really want to leave! I hope one day I will go back, and if I do, I will stay at Rainforest Motel.

I only had one night here but was made to feel very welcome and the accomodation was wonderful - very clean and comfortable. Take your bug spray though as being in a bit of rainforest, there are mosquitos around. Got back to my room after dinner/drinks and saw a tree frog. Restaurants were closed by 9.30pm so get to Mission Beach to eat/drink earlier in the day.
