If you're looking for a Motel that is close to everything, has very friendly hosts and gives you a free breakfast then just stay here! It's a short walk to the beach and the RSL has very nice meals. I travel alot for work and it is really nice to feel genuinely welcome :)

Visited Hervey Bay as I do every six months, and once again stayed at the Main St Motel. Once again hosts Mary and Bob made the visit uncomplicated and enjoyable. Rooms are always very clean and serviced daily. The Motel is located within walking distance of Hervey's main shopping centre and next door to shopping amenities and the magnificent RSL.... More

Excellent clean accommodations. Very helpful host. Took her advice for all of our excursions and saw a ton of whales and great tour of Fraser Island. Went with Freedom Whale watching and Unique tours (ask for driver Chris).

Sure its not the Ritz but your not being charged $700 per night. Clean, comfortable centrally located (close to the ex services club and major super markets). Rooms are spacious and bathrooms well appointed. Breakfast is provided at no additional charge.... self cook/serve, (cook your bacon and eggs just the way you like them). Highly recommended for a comfortable stay.

Small kitchen area in the room with tea and coffee making facilities and supplies. Large shower, all tiled bathroom, good linen and plenty of towels.

Clean well maintained we had a room with a double bed and two singles which would have been great for a young family, walking distance to shops and beach bicycles were not available due to insurance policies not being written up but that was being addressed perfect stop before heading over to Fraser Island.
