The Tin Can Bay Motel is dog friendly and as we travel with our Retriever being dog friendly is very important to us. The owners are lovely, welcoming and very accommodating .Despite a power cut, beyond the amanagement control,we had a lovely stay and will be back. So if you are traveling with or without a dog Tin Can Bay... More

The hosts were very helpful with advice and excursion bookings. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with all essential amenities and kitchen equipment. The location is serene and conveniently located for various activities and excursions, such as dolphin feeding, boating and fishing,the Frazer Island excursion from nearby Rainbow beach and the whale watching cruises from Hervey Bay( 90 mins drive...

A big, airy, immaculately clean room, aesthetically appealing, in a sober style and colour scheme with a state of the art bathroom and equipment, all brand new. The ceiling heating lamps above the wash basin a clever addition. Nice coffee corner, excellent wi-fi, XL TV. Friendly owner. Professionally well-kept, impeccable place in nice, green surroundings. We immediately booked a second... More

Stayed here one night in the pet friendly unit. We could not have been happier. The room (double with two single beds) had a kitchen and good sized bathroom. If you really want to be picky, the bathroom was dated, but the size and cleanliness of the room more than made up for this in our opinion. Dingo, the guy... More

Just needed an economical but comfortable room for one night. Met by a friendly helpful reception. First impression of our room was an immediate sense of approval. Spacious, bright, clean and comfortable. No breakfasts served but we were directed to a Cafe along the waterfront. Nice brekkie and coffee for less than a motel normally charges.

My husband and our oversized labrador stayed this past weekend. The staff were courteous and friendly. The room was modest but just right for the money. The kitchenette saved us money as we could make our own brekkie and the motel compendium provided perfect suggestions of a local seafood shop for our first dinner and pizza shop for the second...

Good clean motel, with nice beds and good fittings, very comfortable. A bit far from town, signposting to the motel needs upgrading as the direction arrows are missing. An easy drive along the waterfront to view the dolphins

Good clean rooms, very pleasant operators. Lovely border collie dog. Great to wake up to the sounds of the birds, no traffic. Happy to stay there again. Tin Can Bay is a great place to unwind. Great walking tracks along the foreshore.

Admittedly didn't pay much for our 2 night stay. Room was very average and in need of a major refurbishment. Grounds were good and well looked after. Went to feed the dolphins but unfortunately it rained so gave that a miss. Not a lot to do in Tin can Bay. Went to rainbow beach, nice place but although the rain... More
