This is a motel we found and stayed at about 9 years ago and it did not take us long to locate it once more.. The motel is on the main road from the esplanade and sands, some 300 yards away. In the intervening years the motel has changed little. There is a nice courtyard for parking, a swimming pool tucked away and a laundrette etc.

The physical status of the motel is unchanged. The room and balcony still tastefully decorated and clean which also applied to the shower/bathroom. There is adequate clothing space. Fresh milk was available on request at no charge. The staff were friendly and helpful although we were a little puzzled as to why the reception closed as early as 7.30pm weekdays and 5.30 at weekends.

There are plenty of eateries nearby, but we again mainly chose the much upgraded and refurbished Bowls Club some 50 yards away. The atmosphere, food and value for money has improved enormously. There is a small shopping complex opposite and the main shopping area only a few minutes walk. The motel is well placed for visits to attractions such as Noosa Head, Australian Zoo etc.

This motel is very reasonably priced and represents good value for money. We are glad we returned and hopefully will do so again in the future.

Thank you for your kind review. We are certainly very fortunate to be in a central location for all to experience. Our office hours have remained the same for many years now, and work well with our travellers to Mooloolaba.

This is a very good value option for staying on the sunshine coast. easy access to all of the town and bus stop outside for further afield. This place is clean and tiday. Maybe a little basic but definatley good value.

We stayed here when our original motel lost our booking. We found the staff friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable and walking distance to the beach. Our kids enjoyed the motel pool too although it was a little cool for me.

We recently stays at the Mooloolaba Motel for a weekend for business.

We found the motel to be very clean and tidy. It is located within an easy walk to the beach front where there are plenty of places to eat.

We did have issues with noisy neighbours, but when we called the security people at 4am, they were very prompt in their attention to the matter.

We did receive an email apology from the owners for the disturbance which was appreciated and were impressed that they took the time to do this and let us know how they had handled the situation with the people involved.

We would stay here again if we are in Mooloolaba.

Thank you for your comments on your stay. Unfortunately, sometimes people are disrespectful to others staying and we do our best to avoid such people, however it is not an easy task. We are happy we were able to handle the situation at the time that you advised us of a problem. We also hope to see you again in your next trip to beautiful Mooloolaba.

This was booked for me for work. The rooms was recently painted and it looks like the bathroom has had an upgrade. The mirror and basin are very low, so difficult for anyone tall. The fridge was brand new and everything worked well. The beds need to be replaced. They are tired and out dated. Curtains could also be changed. The patio chairs are old. Otherwise OK, for an overnight. You need to find a place to eat, however the location is excellent. Just a short walk to the beach and Underwater world.

We appreciate your suggestions and take them on board. I would like to mention that no rooms have been painted since 2008/09 so am not sure what you refer to regarding the paint smell.
