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.

We had a fantastic 3 nights (my son and I). Saw many places we didn't know existed in Maleny. Some of the places that are a must see are The Botanical Gardens and Bird Sanctuary, Gardner Falls,Mary Cairncross Park and, of course, the magnificent views either side of the highway. The motel managers were friendly and helpful. Took advantage of the many lookouts along the way, being able to see across to Caloundra, and Coolum. The room and beds were very comfortable. A quiet room, traffic not a problem.

If you're looking for a bed and breakfast, luxury stay - this isn't it. But if you are looking for a budget, clean, comfortable stay - with an AMAZING view (just street view it!) and excellent hospitality, your money will not go astray here. This was a great little spot to stay, we just needed somewhere safe and comfortable and we were more than happy. If anything I would just like to note for families that this is on a busy road and the doors do open onto an unfenced but lovely grassed area.

The second motel I have stayed in whilst visiting Maleny. On arrival the reception was locked, once I called and got the lady to open the door it didn't get better. I booked through a third party website and the booking didn't match their normal prices, not my fault and they had to honour it but made a big deal out of it and I was left feeling extremely anxious and was not a good first impression. The car park is ridiculously tight and wasn't fun to manoeuvre into. The view was gorgeous however the road noise, dirty carpets and thin walls brought that down many notches. Overall not a great experience and not a motel I will be returning to.

I stayed at this motel for one night to attend a wedding at Maleny Manor (next door - 200m away). I stayed in a spa suite, which looks directly out over Maleny. The view has to be seen to be believed, photos do not do it justice! The rooms a private, very clean and the hosts are great. I will be staying here again next time I travel to Maleny. 5 stars!

High price for budget and dated accommodation. Very noisy being on main road. The overwhelming chemical cleaning smell in the room was very distasteful, the smell sticking in the back of your throat and no amount of open windows or doors could shift the smell . Lucky we could sit outside to enjoy our pre dinner drink. Free wifi is offered, but had run out by the time we got back from dinner, so averaged 3 hours of free wifi. On the positive side, the on-site Manager was lovely.

The room had everything I needed and the views were truly awe inspiring. Hosts could not do enough for me and were very easy to talk to about a range of local subjects. Had a great night's sleep. Overall a most enjoyable stay.

Now called Maleny Views Motel, owner manger onsite. Amazing views from room with table and chairs outside to sit and have a drink and watch the view. Newly renovated modern bathroom with comfortable bedding and aircon, tv, kettle, microwave, fridge and toaster. Very well maintained motel, older style but clean and tidy. 3 restaurants next door, 1 minute walk. Definitely will stay here again.

Charging hotel prices for a dated uninspiring motel, highway robbery. Paid $185 for a room that had a FLEECE blanket which was dirty and had dried god knows what on it. Shower and toilet mats obviously never washed. For a motel it was fine but charging those prices is insane with not even breakfast included. Wouldn't stay again. Managers were pleasant though.

We stayed as a family in 6 rooms attending a wedding at Tiffany’s. Our rooms were spotlessly clean and well equipped. The hosts are welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The view is amazing and the garden a lovely spot to enjoy a cocktail. All in all a great stay.

after a romantic weekend in Brisbane it was great to arrive in peaceful Maleny. Check in was easy and we were able to get ready before going to our Sunday afternoon wedding. The room was clean and comfortable and the view out across the coast was fantastic. We saw the most stunning sunrise from the veranda. A great stay away
