The lady running it, Teena I believe, was really nice. We had a good chat. Internet worked. Room was big. No complaints at all! Covered parking. Easy to find. Had a sink, cold a/c, everything was clean.

Can't rate this place highly enough. Owners very helpful, sorted out our trip to Fraser Island and good advice about where to eat / walks. Room lovely with homely touches, everything you need. Quiet and peaceful with the beach across the road. Really good value for money and would recommend.

This was a great little motel. We were made to feel very welcome on checking in. The rooms are quiet, clean and very comfortable with a few little touches to make them feel homely. A good location with a beach just across the road.

We were looking for a cheap and cheerful room to overnight on our trip from Cairns to Caloundra. We certainly found it at Shelley Beach Motel; so accomodating, friendly, and it felt like we were staying at grandma's. The rooms were exceptionally clean and there was room out the front or back for kids to kick a ball around -...
