“Need a new photo.”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

The photograph pictured is definitely not taken at this motel....Dark room that was long overdue for a renovation, carpet was threadbare, ill fitting bedspreads, over all horrible, bleak room that backed on to a very major highway. Good job we were just here overnight...would not come back nor recommend.

You are correct, I did not provide this photo, I am like most motels and don't agree with the Trip Advisor review system and don't participate in any of their promossions etc, I don't believe any guest can write a negative review like you have when they only stay one night ! All the posivtive comments are those who are longer stays

Although an older motel, the motor inn is still clean and customer service is fantastic. The chinese restaurant was gorgeous with beautiful food. Location and price trumps all, especially if going to Dreamworld.. Its walking distance! short drive to movie world and not far for hope island. Will most definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed in 39, and with windows and door closed, could not hear the road noise at all

I knew before I went that the motel was near a major highway, but I had hoped that the noise would have been mitigated in some way. False hope!

If this motel had been in a quieter location, I would have given it a very good rating and that is my dilemma. The first problem with the motel is signage. If you approach from Brisbane, there is a hedge between you and the motel and no sign on that side of the road. We drove past it and on for a few Kms before ringing the motel to get directions. Even then, the sign at the front of the motel is very poor.

The motel itself is lovely. Pool, gazebo, nice grounds, a laundry, and very close to Dreamworld. The manager was friendly and the room was a good size, clean and the beds comfortable. For my regular readers, you will know that often the shower defines a place for me and the shower was excellent. One thing missing from the cutlery was breakfast bowls.

If my objective was a nice motel close to dream world, this would have been excellent, but my objective was a good night's sleep and that was missing. Now it may have been, that we were in the noisiest room (18), it may be that other rooms are quieter, but for my objective, in that room, the experience for me was poor.

This is the place to stay if you are looking for a motel close to dreamworld. It is literally across the road, so convenient and hassle free. The hospitality my boyfriend and I received was like we were family. We arrived soaked from rain, dripping wet and were well looked after from the beginning. It made for such a pleasant and memorable stay even though it poured the whole time!

Great located motel right next to dream world and white water world. Excellent service, with a lovely manager. I would recommend staying here to everyone. Our room was very clean and comfortable.
The motor inn has a great looking pool and back yard area if only it wasn't so wet when we stayed.
Thanks for the great hospitality!

This motel may be convenient to Dreamworld but it is dreary and outdated as are a vast number of australian motels . I doubt the place has had a refreshing in ten years. brick walls have never worked as an attractive feature in a bedroom . the bathroom was clean but 20 years out of date and the shower leaked continually . Considering the cost was over $100 the cost per night it was verypoor value.

Was looking for somewhere to stay, close to Dreamworld. This place is ideal. Its about a 5 minute walk from the motel.
The room was comfortable and cosy. Its all we needed for only a couple of nights. The staff at the motel were friendly and helpful.
The Chinese restaurant that was located upstairs had really nice food.
If I am ever in the area again, I will be staying there again.
The only downside was that it backs on the freeway, which can make it quiet noisy if your door to your room is open.
