Have been staying there on and off over the last 20 years and it's always improving.
I love observing the planes coming in to land around lunchtime while lazing on the fantastic beach.
A quick drive to the car park at Mt Coolum which is an invigorating walk to the summit and has great views.
Great beach access, shops aquick drive away. Airport very handy.

Don't make the mistake of lumping this into the Motel category and discounting it, This is better than your average 3star hotel. It's clean, modern, and well appointed, with flat screen TV DVD, Kitchenet with microwave. I will definitely stay here again, especially if i can get the same internet room rate again. Excellent value and location.

Room Tip: Booked on Wotif for $49 for 5 day minimum

My name is Matthew and I have stayed at pacific palms on a number of occasions over the past 12 months. I have stayed in several different rooms from basic to deluxe and can honestly say that all there rooms are modern in design, all rooms were spacious and very clean. I did not experience any of the problems that I often have with other accommodation-eg: everything was in perfect working order, staff very helpful and happy to accommodate any requirements needed and is situated in the heart of Sunshine coast's wonderful surroundings. I am a tradesman and it has been a pretty rough year up on the coast for me and the manager and the owner of this establishment have gone above and beyond on several occasions to help me secure accommoderation.
I could not recommend a motel/Inn any higher and will not hesitate in staying with them in the future.

Had a lovely stay at the Palms Pacific. We rang to advise that we would be arriving late just after 8pm and the staff were more than happy to wait for us. Very friendly welcome. Rooms very tidy, with kitchenette and modern bathroom. Was very suprised how nice the room was as got such a good deal. Lovely pool and deck chairs outside room. Would defiantly stay again had a lovely time. Close to Noosa & Mooloolabar with a great Pizza/Pasta takeout just down road. Also the Local Surf Club is just a 5 min drive. Great for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Considering the price we paid I was expecting something pretty dismal but other reviews gave me hope. We were only staying overnight so I didnt think it would matter.

The room is really spacious and well ventilated. There is an air-con if you need it but there's a front and back door so there's good airflow. The bathroom is beautiful, the bed is comfortable, there's a big lounge and you can borrow dvd's from reception so you can have a comfortable night in. There's lots of crockery and glassware, toaster, jug etc unlike the 2 glass maximum most hotels have. It looks like its had a partial renovation and its really clean. The room is very big so there is definitely room to put a cot or fold out bed as well. It would be a great place to holiday with kids if you're on a budget. They can even play on the front lawn under supervision. Oh one of the reviews said there was nowhere to hang clothes but we had a small built in with more hangers than the 5 star hotels ever give you. We were in room 3 if that helps?

There's a grassed area at the front of your room with picnic tables etc and there is a pool somewhere in the complex although it was raining so we didnt use it. Only a small complex of maybe 6 units so it was quiet. It's on the road opposite the airstrip but we slept with the front door open (there's a lockable security screen) and had a great sleep. I read the reviews about aircraft noise but we arrived at 6pm Friday and left at 9am Saturday and we didnt hear a single thing from the airport.

There's no dining facilities on site but you can get pizza/takeaway delivered or the Surf Club is about a 10 minute walk around the corner. Due to the rain we didnt get to the beach but drove past it and its within walking distance also. If not drive to Coolum or another beach 10 minutes away. There's also a bus stop across the road so you can get public transport if you need to.

We only stayed overnight but we go to the Coast a lot and usually stay in Noosa or at Twin Waters but we would definitely come back and stay here instead because its excellent value for money and lets face it, you're only in your room to sleep.

The only tip I would have is that its a little hard to find at night because there's no street lights outside so try to get there in daylight or ring ahead and ask him to turn on the fluro light outside until you get there.
