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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Warm welcome on arrival. Room was clean, spacious and bed was super comfy. Short walk to all the shops and restaurants and not far from the beach. Can highly recommend and will definately stay again when we return to Yeppoon.

Stayed in room 1 for 3 nights, it is on the main road. Didn't notice any extra noise. Room was good size and clean. Best thing has got to be its location , restaurants, cafes, grocery shops and pubs are all in a 15min walk. Would certainly return again.

Room had a damp musky smell. The floor was damp and wet, I’m am going to say from the shower as when we had a shower we had to be extremely careful because it went to floor out into the room. The shower flooring is higher than room and slops down into the room so the water runs that way. If you have the aircon on then take extra blankets as the two you get which yes is normal I know, but the two you get are extremely thin and not very warm. Over all for the money I paid it is way over priced. The smell of the room alone was really bad. Room is very tiny, not worth the money I paid.

We had a great couple of nights here. The motel is in a great location with eateries nearby for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Coles is also within easy walking distance. Rooms are very well appointed with everything you need. On-site parking is helpful, and being ground floor units, there is no heavy lifting required. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

Rooms are basic but comfortable, bed was comfy and reception staff friendly and helpful. Room was surprisingly quiet for a main street location.Motel is quite central and an easy walk to pubs and eateries. As I mentioned above the rooms are basic, well ours was but it had everything we required for our overnight stay. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Easy access by car, quiet, even next to road, clean, comfortable bed, friendly host with many insider info. Many shops, restaurants nearby, the beach promenade nicely designed and well equipped. Inn looks a bit oldfashioned from outside but is nicely and modern renovated

Close to the beach and right in town so a great location. The car parks are really wide for each room as well as space for vans and trailers. Was good to have plates and cutlery for breakfast and take away dinners. Shower pressure was great, wifi a tad slow at times but still good.
