Nice helpful welcome and instructions from Josh.
Undercover parking outside my room. Pool was also in the courtyard area. Had a couple of swims and found it clean, cool and refreshing.
My room had a queen bed, arm chair, two dining chairs and a bench. Wardrobe to hang clothes. New looking stainless steel mini fridge. Microwave, jug, toaster. Clean, tidy bathroom. Big flat screen TV, fan and air con.
Even though the motel is on one of the main routes, traffic noise was not intrusive from my room number 9. Within walking distance of Subway and Red Roister. Stayed for 2 nights @ $99. Would stay again if passing through town.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled solo

Tidy motel room with a kitchenette and appliances. Easy to find. Big rooms and comfortable bed. Very helpful staff. Would stay there again. Close to subway and red rooster. Short drive into main street.

Going from Rockhampton to Cairns we decided to stay overnight approx halfway- not only are they very friendly, helpful owners and clean rooms they allow pets in the room as we had a small dog this suited us and would definitely stay again. We did have a blanket of our own for her to lie on on the bed. Also the beach is dog friendly

There is not much available in Bowen for those travelling with their pets which led me to the Pearly shell. The owner was welcoming and accomodating, the room was clean and provided for all our basic needs, there is a pool to relax in and options for dinner are within a short walk or drive depending on your preference. If you're looking for a reasonably priced, traditional style motel room this is the place.

We stayed for one night while travelling. We didn't find traffic noise a problem but the parking in front of the units is tight.

The room was large and clean. The linen was clean but the bed was quite hard. Nice big TV, toaster and microwave. It looked like the room had been renovated and the carpet looked new.

The bathroom was tiny, and dated. The shower was hot but old. The water was very slow to run out of the sink.

The staff were very helpful.

I would stay there again if I just needed a sleep as it's cheap and you get what you paid for.

Stayed: June 2017
Thank Margaret B
