This would be a good place to spend a week or so. I don't know if Bowen is the place to be but the motel would certainly be good. It is located close to the water. The room has a large living space with separate bedroom and small kitchenette that has a microwave and hotplate. If you are interested in a road trip down the east coast of Queensland visit our not for profit blog at havecarryonwilltravel.com. The place is really clean. The bed is very comfy. The night was beyond quiet, didn't even hear a car pass. Good choice in a small town.

We were driving South and looking for accommodation, we found this place in Bowen.
Check in was great. The Lady was friendly and helpful.
We felt very welcome.
Location was not far from the water and a Pub was in walking distance with great food.
Our room was facing a street but it wasn't noisy because there were hardly any cars.
The rooms are like Units with bedroom, bath, kitchenette and extra living room.
For my liking the atmosphere was a bit cold, they had pictures on the wall but still.... and the lights were very bright. nothing cosy
I didn't like that the Tv was not in the bedroom but that is my personal opinion.
The Ocean view rooms are more expensive!
Everything looked clean and the garden was well looked after.
Its a huge place.
All rooms looked basically the same, wondering if that was a retirement village? Also so many Letterboxes !!!

Room Tip: I think all rooms look the same

After arriving in Bowen for a medical emergency it was comforting to be directed to the clean,neat & comfy units of the Port Denison Motor Inn. We were greeted by a friendly & concerned lady, whom I believe to be the owner. Lovely clean unit, big bathroom & comfortable beds. Will definitely be staying again, hopefully under better circumstances.

We had a warm welcome from the owners and facilities in the motel were very good. It was a short walk to the jetty, where we saw turtles!!!!
It was also close to the Grand View Hotel where we had one of the best meals we had eaten in Australia.
A lot of the hotels we tried to stay in didn’t do accommodation and so we stayed mainly in motels. The vast majority of motels we stayed in were good value, extremely clean and well equipped. Many had laundry facilities, which were very reasonable and we were often given washing powder by the motel staff. The owners were generally charming, friendly and helpful.

The place is well maintained and looked after, it is klean. The staff is very friendly and very helpfull. It is not the cheapest accomodation but well worth the price. I can only recommend it. The place is walking distance to the Whitsonday island boats and the jetty.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view room.
