Got what I thought was a great deal - very small motel suite, although modern. Complex was a bit noisy - there's a bar underneath the building.

We stayed two nights in this resort and thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment was modern and well-appointed, clean and tidy. Also the staff were very friendly. Ocean View" might not be the best name for this Resort as many of the rooms have minimal or no view of the ocean. The location in Caloundra is really great; it's in the centre of town and a 5 minute walk to the beach. Another positive was the free underground secure parking.
Our third floor studio apartment was comfortable and clean and had a pleasant outlook over the main street down towards the ocean, off Bulcock beach. This is less than five minutes walk away. The kitchen had all the basics including a microwave. Just above the kitchen sink was a notice which stated that before vacating the premises, all rubbish was to be removed and placed in the bins outside. Overall we enjoyed staying at this Resort and would definitely stay there again.

We felt the photos on the website was deceiving. There was no dinning table so we had to eat sitting on the settee. The lounge suite was so dirty I had no choice but to complain about it. It was cleaned the next moring but was still to wet to sit on it till the next morning. There were little bugs (Not ants) around the kitchen which got into the food. the glass ware was chipped. Only had one very large knife for cutting. We had a lettuce in the fridge which froze and we could not eat it. There was only hanging room in the wordrobe, nowhere to put our clothes in the bedroom. The mattress and pillows were very comfortable. There was mildue on the curtains. Very central location.

Stayed 3 nights. Was promised sea views and got second floor with distant view between buildings. Asked the receptionist twice for a sea view and was told that was it.
Had to ask next day for free bottle of wine and was made to wait with a delay for checking. Reception was very frosty and room was average with very little light except for a ranch slider about 2m x 3 m. So a dark apartment.
Definitly has a misleading name and apartments should be named Building Views Resort.
Avoid at all cost

After one of Wotif.com's fantastic deal offers, I noticed this place looked quite nice and also had a great price.

As its only 3 years old everything was quite new, room even had washer and dryer. We stayed for 2 nights and thought the place was fantastic- big balcony although "ocean view" maybe a bit over stated. The location is quite good with it being on the main drag of Caloundra everyhting was at arms reach. Even a great restaurant directly at the bottom, which had awesome meals and drinks with cheap prices to match!

Room was clean and tidy, with plenty of seating if you had visitors and found most- if not all kitchen utensils handy.

Checked out the spa and sauna, both were nice and relaxing especially because it was raining.

Overall I would stay here again and also recommend to friends to stay here. Staff were friendly and helpful- even scored late check out. Underground parking was a bonus as well!

We stayed two nights in this resort and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good access to shops, restaurants and beaches. Also the boardwalk around to Kings Beach was great! The apartment was modern and well-appointed, clean and tidy. There wasn't a huge "ocean view" from our apartment balcony but we would recommend OVR as a very nice place to stay. Also the staff were very friendly and helpful.

"Ocean View" might not be the best name for this motel as many of the rooms have minimal or no view of the ocean. We were given a disabled room without having asked for and without being informed. It wasn't a big deal though, apart from the odd shape of the toilet and the mirror. We also had difficulty finding the parking space for our room cause we were skipping the disabled areas!
The room was pretty spacious and neat except for the stained carpets and moldy curtains. The one bedroom apartment was actually a big room with dividers around the bed. The TV was really small for the size of the room. The apartment was not daily serviced so basically we didn't have any room service during our stay and for any extra washing powder/liquid you had to pay extra money.
However we loved the barbeque area on the roof. It was huge and had a great view. The location and value for money are other good points about this resort.
