Despite this being one of the older motels along the beach, it's still a great place to relax & enjoy the area. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have undergone some great upgrading since our last visit . The price is kept low by the owners decision not to service the rooms daily, rather to ask guests to let them... More

An older motel, I'm guessing early 70s, but in just as good a condition as when it was first opened. Good size rooms, comfortable bed, pleasant owners and just over the road from the beach. Large grassed area out the back and a communal BBQ area.

After having felt anxious,traveling from one motel to another, booking on a day by day basis it was great to find one we were happy to stay for a few days together. Situated on the esplanade and only 50 meters from the safest swimming beach, north facing, Tina and Deb made us very welcome. The rooms are clean, well appointed,... More

We spent a night at Shelly Beach on our way out of Fraser Island. We had a very comfortable room with a nice view on the sea, and had dinner in a good Italian restaurant only minutes away (Santini's). The owner of the Shelly Beach was very friendly and welcoming, and even took us to the airport the next morning... More

During our stay in Harvey Bay we stayed at this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Although it's a bit outdated the room is large and clean as is the carpet and bathroom. The room has a LCD TV and air conditioning. The bed and pillows are good as well. The beach is across the street of the... More

We stayed there for a night before leaving to Lady Elliot Island. The room is not really worth mentioning - clean, big enough, but nothing special. The owner however was really friendly and she gave us a great tip where to go and have something to eat - the coast restaurant.

We have stayed here for so many years that Deb and Teena recognize our names when we book. We live in the States but my husband grew up in Maryborough and Hervey Bay so we come back to visit every year. Nothing changes at Shelley Beach Motel which is wonderful. It is an old fashioned Aussie motel so don't expect... More
