“THE most friendly staff ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2009

We arrived there on a weekday night for our last night in Queensland before flying back to Sydney. The check-in office was closed, but as soon as we rang the bell, the extremely friendly old uncle came out and welcomed us.

We only booked for one room for 2 adults but actually four more friends joined us in the last minute - which made it very hard to find a room in Brissie and Gold Coast considering it's school holiday. But luckily we got 3 rooms at this motel - which was such a relief coz it was like 9pm when we got there.

We only stayed for one night but i wish we stayed longer. You would not believe how nice and friendly the owner of the motel were. They really looked after us for the ten something hours we were there. They helped us finding food at that time of the night in such a small suburb, they called a taxi for us when we were leaving even before i asked, and they came out and saw us off when we were leaving for the beach.

The place was clean and tidy, nice rooms ... and so cheap! and close to beach and airport. I read quite a few good reviews before staying there, and now i am recommending it myself.

with nothing fancy, i would still call it a perfect motel.

Booked the place on line and didn't expect much for such a cheap price but boy was I pleasantly surprised.
My room was well furnished and very comfortable.
The owner was very helpfull and advised that I go to the local RSL Club for a meal which was great value.
Yet another place I wish I had stayed longer!

I stayed at this motel for 2 nights in January 2008. I found the hotel through a last minute accommodation website, but booked directly with the motel.
The reception staff were very friendly. Once I saw inside the room, I got the impression that it must have been family run - there were nice touches inside the rooms. For example, the room had a microwave.
The room was older style, but well kept. There were a few problems - the air conditioner leaked, and the shower took several minutes to get warm (and then couldn't really be adjusted without losing all hot water). The room was quite large (Queen size bed with linen and single bed without linen - we had only paid for a queen size room). Cutlery and plates were provided, and BBQ utensils were available from reception to cook a BBQ beside the pool if required.
The motel is located right on a main road (David Low Way), and though I could hear some traffic, it wasn't a problem. It is also very near the Sunshine Coast airport, but we couldn't hear any airport noise. It is located just off the Sunshine Coast Motorway, which made it a very convenient place to stay if exploring the coast.
I would stay there again, but would also try other places if they offered similar value for money.

  • Liked — Friendly Service and Conenient Location

Stayed for 3 nights in November 2007

Reception hours are 8am to 8pm, but a night bell is available.

Very friendly owner/staff.

Good clean unit, if somewhat tight, with ceiling fan and air conditioning.
Hair dryer, ironing board provided (Iron available from reception).
Microwave, toaster, cutlery and crockery provided.
Free to air TV only.
BBQ facilities next to swimming pool area.

Towels are replaced every 2nd day.
The coffee and tea were not replenished during our stay.

The car parking is also somewhat of a squeeze, and large vehicles may require some manouvering to get out.

  • Liked — Great Value
  • Disliked — Some inconsistencies with room servicing
