Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Worst experience of my life…..not secure, hard to find. No reception - door lock hard to unlock. Noisy unit above. No where to park, no hair dryer.. I should have pitched my tent and camp stretcher on the beach!

Unfortunately the property left A LOT to be desired. It was fairly clean, very dated & nothing like its pictures. No people to people contact. The pool was dirty and closed. The kitchen facilities were very substandard, old and outdated. The room was very basic and we had the pleasure of listening to the young couple in the next room enjoying each others company. Very very expensive at $210 per night for what was offered. I certainly would not recommend this motel.

This hotel is pretty vile. The appearance as you drive up is awful and the rooms are worse than basic. No hairdryer which I needed and it wasn't even that cheap!! Because there was an event on in Molloolaba that weekend they had raised their prices! how rude!!! it was overpriced for the most basic room I've ever stayed in. Location is good and that's the only good thing about it

This motel is budget priced for the area but you have to expect very BASIC accommodation. There was no toilet paper in the room, the room was very small, no table or chairs in the room and, if you wanted to make a cup of coffee, you had to go to the public kitchen to get water. You can only fill the jug from there or under the shower as the jug does not fit under the hand basin tap. Reception is pretty much non existent. Beds are comfortable though and it's in a central location.

Paid $140 for a dirty room with bedbugs. When I contacted the hotel directly all they offered was that they would contact housekeeping. See more detailed review in pics. Even if you are up there on business like I was and there are no other options, either part the $300 for a clean hotel or sleep in your car. DO NOT STAY HERE.

We stayed here for two nights. Our room was clean, bed comfortable, and shower was powerful despite shower head being a bit low for my hubby who is tall. The room was very very basic. No hairdryer so I had to go and buy one and no lamps, only a bright main light which I hate. The location is excellent. The reception area appears to be at the backpackers next door which I wasn’t keen on. We didn’t experience a lot of noise but that was probably luck. The outside of the buildings are very basic and the driveway is very tight for room. I ended up parking on street as knew I’d struggle to turn my car. Could do with a microwave

Sadly on arrival we thought this isn't looking great very hard to get into if you have a big car. It is cheap but we weren't expecting too much and the manager was polite and did let us have early check in. Walking in looked ok but the tv remote was broken, the air con remote, jug walls all dirty, and the door handles felt dirty. Sink was taped together for the price I would expect a proper mattress. There was only two glasses yet there was 3 of us.Then to top it off we walked to get lunch on our return our car had been scratched. The place didn't feel safe. Give credit the manager refund half of money. An up dated shower curtain and a good mattress would make a difference. My husband is a commercial cleaner and notices the little things. The towel duck in the bed was a lovely touch but hand towel is needed.
