We have stayed at the Tin Can Bay Motel each year since 2015. Outstanding customer service and friendly owners. Very clean and comfortable. Excellent value for money and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. No coincidence that we return whenever in the area.

We always choose this motel to stay at on our way to Fraser Island. The Woolworths at Cooloola is 10 minutes away for our shop, the room is huge for our family of five, great air conditioning and always a friendly smile when checking in. Pool is great and wifi and price is awesome.

Nice spacious room fully equipped fantastic fridge freezer and aircon! Great BBQ area as well! Also a small table and chairs right outside the room where you can smoke. When we arrived the lady was lovely and couldn't be more helpful, there's a big Woolworths 8k down the road too, highly recommend!
