Clean, comfortable and convenient

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Mar 2024
Our booking was for a standard hotel room so, having looked at the description on the website, we didn't expect any more than basic accommodation. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by reception staff and found our room (in addition to the fridge, kettle, iron and hairdryer) to be equipped with a microwave, plates, cutlery, tea towel and dishwashing liquid - none of which was mentioned in the description on the hotel's website. The room was clean and comfortable. Good, hot shower.
While the pool looked inviting, the persistent wet weather deterred us from trying it. The shops across the road provide the essentials and Coles is a 2.5km walk or drive away. We didn't eat at the in-house restaurant, so cannot comment on that.
While our room faced the airport and main road, closing the door to the balcony stopped the noise.
The Ramada is conveniently located, close to the airport and a short drive to Maroochydore and Coolum. Parking in the carpark or on the service road is freely available.

The carpets where not cleaned meaning not fresh.
Had an odour their were tiny flying bugs insects stuck to the blinds.
Then while sleeping the same tiny insects were flying around me while sleeping.
Could not quite identify what they were.
Phoned reception to make a complaint.
The person in charge of this particular area brought someone to clean the carpets.
I had to leave the hotel while this was being sorted.
Though on my return I could smell that the carpets were fresher though they still did not look clean enough.
Though I believe they need to retire this carpet and replace it.
Their is an old mishshapen cooling fan.
That is quite damaged that needs throwing out.
The walls need painting their are marks on parts of the walls.
2 nd night at the Ramada I’m hoping I don’t have more flying insects attacking me.
One of the pillows under the pillow cases is stained.
Not clean enough .
Many of the hotels are booked up because of events on the coast.
Or I would be back at Mooloolaba for the rest of my stay on the Sunshine Coast.

Room tip: Bring your own pillows and other bedding. Only because of the hygiene .

Good afternoon Navigator387436,

Thank you for the feedback, it is always welcomed and appreciated. I am sorry if you did not enjoy your stay, I am sure that had you alerted our team to your disappointment, we would have been able to try and look at alternatives. The units we manage are all individually owned, so there are some differences in rooms.
Thank you again for your feedback, it will be shared with the team.

Warm Regards,

Went there recently. The frontage is nice, reception area is good, function room are big, pool is good size, right next to beach also is great. But for someone of a disability that’s where it stopped. Booked well in advance, had person with disability with us and in wheel chair, was confirmed as a disability booking, never got disabled room. Not for a wheel chair anyway. 3 bathrooms for a 3 bedroom room. 2 of them are glassed in small cubicles, and 3rd had bath in it that is so high to get over. Not great for someone in wheel chair, flooring in shower very slippery when wet. Not great for disabled, elderly, someone of bad balance, restaurant was slow with meals, breakfast took an hour to serve.that was on a what I would called slow time for them, and still took an hour. Understaffed to say least, easy orders went in and took an hour for us. Same story for other tables as well.

Room tip: Will most likely not be back. Unless I get good restitution for the bad stay.

Here for the sixth year in a row, had to move rooms twice, as we didn’t get what we booked 12 months in advance for. We requested ocean, pool view, but were told it wasn’t on file. First time we were disappointed. Complimentary bottle of wine would have been nice.

Room tip: More poolside seats would be great

Dear FellowTraveler730857,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We appreciate your loyalty as a returning guest. I wanted to clarify that while we strive to accommodate your preferences, guaranteeing the same room each time is subject to availability. For a guaranteed ocean view, booking a specific ocean view rooms are recommended. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to welcoming your family back again.

Kind Regards,
Ramada Marcoola Beach

Yes very poor and dated, but cleanliness was biggest issue. No view as on street side but that wasn’t main problem.
3 of 4 placemats and dirty
Chocolate stains on seats
Dust/fluff in fan
No broom or dustpan or vacuum
Dirty carpet

To name a few…….
