Ocean Views Resort
Ranked #11 of 16 Hotels in Caloundra
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Ocean View Resort was a perfect price for a one-night getaway from Brisbane. Happy Valley Beach is the best spot for young families with the shallow tidal pools to swim in, coffee cart, playground and boardwalk. The bathroom wasn't ideally cleaned (hairs on the floor, still). But, the kitchenette room was everything we needed it to be. The pool was nice and warm; the hot tub was not as warm as it should have been. A bit chilly on a windy night. As for "VIEWS" -- we had a view of the pool. Be sure to ask for an "Ocean View" at the Ocean View Resort!

Room Tip: Ask for a view room. Surprisingly, there are "non-view" rooms at the Ocean View Resort.

Just spent 3 wonderful days at Caloundra. Room was clean ameneties was great. Everythign was in walking distance. Coles, KMart, restaurants, Sunday Markets, coffee by the beach. Our room only had a small ocean view from our balcony but we were not there long enough for this to be a major factor. Roof top has wonderful views and worth a visit with of course some wine & biscuits to watch the sun set. $99 deal on Wotif so no negative issues from my point. Recommend and would return

Stayed for 3 days last month , didn't know the anything about it, just booked it on the net.
Stayed on the 4th floor. Room was excellent , quite spacious and very comfortable. Big balcony , great view out to the ocean. Kitchen was large and well appointed , we self catered so this was a bonus compared to other places in this price range.

Location was also another surprise , right on the main street means that there are many dining options within a short walk to the hotel. Stacked Pancake cafe adjacent and a restaurant in the complex .

Easy access to the farmers and craft markets in the main street as well , on a Sunday .

We enjoyed it so much we have booked another stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for an ocean view room as not all rooms face the ocean. Floor 4 and above place yo...

We stayed in a 4th floor motel room and the quality and price was excellent and our room had a balcony which overlooked the pool. It is in a great location being a block back from Bulcock Beach within easy walking distance to everything and plenty of secure carparks. Our friends had a studio unit on the 3rd floor which was well appointed but were a little disappointed that they only had glimpses of the ocean because of surrounding buildings. The rooms were spotlessly clean with modern and relatively new furniture and our rooms had a really comfy beds. The entrance to the building and carpark was off a quiet side street so access was easy.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have an ocean view - you will need to ask at time of booking.

Me and my partner stayed here for two nights on the sixth floor. The room had great views of the ocean and the balcony space was huge.
Everything was very clean, very neat and very comfortable, with great ducted air conditioning and good TV.

There is safe parking, a sauna, a pool and a spa. We stayed during school holidays and there seemed to be very few children around

On the opposite corner on Bulcock St we ate at a great Indian place. There's also fish and chips just down the road and the ocean is only a short walk away.

My only concern was the smell when we first walked in. It was coming up from the drain in the floor of the bathroom, which is a common problem in buildings like this, I ran the tap in the bath for a minute and the smell was gone. But it wasn't pleasant.
Otherwise, I highly recommend staying here.

We stayed at the OVR for 3 nights when we went to the caloundra music festival,we were on the 5th floor which gave us great views of the ocean...the room was very neat & the bed was comfortable...being on the Main Street was great as we were walking distance to shops,restaurants & the Sunday markets,although a little bit further away from the festival on kings beach it was a nice walk along the boardwalk overlooking the ocean or the shuttle bus stop was not far up the road...the staff were very friendly & helpful...we would definitely stay at the OVR next time we are on the Sunshine Coast...

We stayed in the motel units recently. We arrived after an all night flight and a couple of hours of driving and it was still only 9 in the morning. We explained to the lady on reception we realised we couldn't get into our room but were wondering if we could park. We were given a parking space and she promised to ring us as soon as the room was ready. We went for a walk and had a lovely breakfast at a place suggested by the lady on reception and were just finishing breakfast when we received a call to say our room was ready. We were impressed by the level of service. The room was good and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is well located. However the staff is their biggest asset. We were given so much information about Caloundra. For example when the markets where on, beach walks and places to eat.

Room Tip: The higher rooms on the front of the hotel are most likely to have a sea view
