“What a gem!””
Reviewed January 10, 2013

What can I say, forget the average/poor comments that have been listed on this site, and read the excellent and very good comments, do you your self a favour and stay here.

Airlie Beach Motor Lodge is in an amazing location set in secluded gardens just 200 metres from the Airlie Beach Lagoon, beach and central village. Also I would like to add further this is a truely pet friendly accomodation, as to others that I have been to.

Karen and Lyn and other staff are very friendly and went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable during our stay. Again a very big thanks to Karen and Lyn.

Chris & Angela and a big thanks from Chico

Quiet location, just a short walk from the backpacker area. Uncomplicated and friendly people. Even though we only stayed one night, they let us store our stuff while we were on our sailing trip. Breakfast was very basic, but ok. Most guests probably do their own, given the kitchenette in the room. We were offered to use the pool and shower after our return from sailing even though we didn't spend another night with them. Also gave us an umbrella when it rained. Would recommend it to others as a stopover or even a bit longer.

Rooms are very clean and spacious, equiped with all you need.
The owner was super friendly and helpful. We arrived very late and keys and route description was all organized very well and professionally.
We were looking for a sailing trip around the Whitsundays for the next day, which was quite difficult as it was a long holiday weekand and most trips where already booked out, but the lady did not give up until we found a suitable 3 day sailing tour. Thanks so much, we were desperate. And the sailing trip was just perfect.
Free WIFI, quite area and you can walk to the city centre.
Hope the dog is well!

Family run, friendly and helpful. To the team at the lodge, a big thank you. It's not the flashest place you are going to stay, but it handy for town, yet clean, quiet and away from it all.

Upon arrival we were a bit worried about what we might get. From the outside it appeared as though one hotel had gradually bought up the neighbors and none of the buildings matched...in fact that's probably what had happened...but it didn't turn out to be a problem.

We pre-purchased one single room and a two bedroom suite averaging $130 a head per night. My single room was small but nice, clean and light. The two bedroom suite was down in another block/building and was great. It was spacious and had a couple of extra single beds.

The location was Awesome! Nice aspect from the rooms too.Just a 5 minute stroll into the central area. The only pity was the GFC was so evident....wow the whole place (Airlie, and all the hotels) were obviously hurting.....yeah it was winter, but ghost townish. For lease signs everywhere....broke businesses.

It wasn't a bargain, but we had a very nice time. The (few) staff were friendly, the place was clean. The BBQ area nice but the BBQ itself I don't think the Salvation army would accept it as a donation. The pool looked good for... if it was summer.

We stayed one week at this lovely place! We loved everything there - it is a quiet place but only a few minutes to the city to make party, you have a barbecue place where u can sit together, play billiard or swim in the pool surrounded by palms!!! Very good for hangovers and tanning!!!
The owners are one of the friendliest and funniest persons we ever met in Australia!!!!! They help us wherever they can!!!!!! We really recommend this place - its clean, friendly, quiet ... in whole, YOU FEEL AT HOME THERE !!!!! The Austrians!
