the motel is run by two very nice women, they are very friendly and helpful and will help you organize trips to the nearby Fraser Island, rooms are big and spacey, the kitchenette is fully equipped , on the ground floor the doors open to the garden, the beach is just across the street

Great location, just a short walk over a road to Shelly beach. If you stay at this hotel you will need transport or use buses to get to town centre. The room was a good size with toaster, fridge, microwave and tea/coffee making. The bed was quite comfortable, so good rest. Had a few issues with the shower flooding, but...

Stayed here for a few nights while visiting Hervey Bay. The room was basic but clean and had everything we wanted. We choose this place because all rooms have a balcony looking at the water. Owners were very friendly and willing to assist us. We will be back!

My wife spotted the Shelly Beach Motel on TripAdvisor.....and we are delighted with it. Spent 3 nights here late Sept and toured Fraser Island and did Whale Watch....both excellent. Thanks for your homely welcome and all your help. Roger and Linda Keynes, touring from Portsmouth England.

Spent my birthday here in 2012 & the owners are fabulous and helpful! They helped my partner book a whale watching tour and organise a beautiful breakfast. . We stayed on the ground floor and it was perfect.

Moving to Tasmania, we made a booking at the Shelly Beach Motel for our last night in Queensland after living here for nearly thirty years. Always driving past nearly every second day, it looked okay but quaint. Actually staying there, was an extremely pleasant time. We got a room with a queen bed and two single chairs with foot rests...

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...

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.
