Top Spot Motel in a top spot!
Review of Top Spot Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 Mar 2024
The first thing you notice (especially at this time of the year) when you land at Sunshine Coast Airport is the humidity. It did not bother me but for some it might

Anyway back to the Top Spot Motel.

As you already know when it comes to property it is all about “location location location” and the Top Spot Motel has it in spades! This motel is smack dab in the middle of just about everything.

The room was basic but comfortable. It has all the necessities like ironing board, microwave, crockery and cutlery, air con. etc etc. Bed was firm and comfortable and reminded me of my own back home. Even with some traffic noise I still managed to doze off quickly.

Woolworths is just around the corner and is within easy walking distance. You should also check out the Big Top Shopping Centre and the Sunshine Plaza. Both great places to do a little shopping and again both within easy walking distance. There are also a lot of restaurants close by. A little further down on Aerodrome Road you will find the Maroochydore station where buses can take you to many destinations.

If you chat to Karen in Reception she will organise a bus to pick you up and take you to Maroochydore Surf Club (check out the beach while you are there) and the RSL If you are into health and fitness like me then it should take you about half an hour to walk to the surf club.

The Top Spot Motel is a 3 star motel but I will give it 4 stars just for its location!
Would I stay here again? – Yes!

Great motel, friendly owners, rooms were all perfect spotless clean. All 21 of us had no complaints. SURF club and the RSL club have shuttle buses. Woolworths is only a 5 minute walk from the motel. Accommodation prices are cheap here. We all highly recommend.

Perfect for a short stay...walking distance to places to eat, shopping and the beach.
We booked a family room for 3 adults and it's size was ideal for an overnight stop.
Definitely an older property but that actually adds to it's appeal. Management have kept the rooms pretty basic but they are very clean, well maintained and contain all the necessities for an easy weekend away.
Reception staff were friendly, check-in & out was smooth, and there was ample parking right in front of your room! (benefit of old style accommodation)
Although easy to find, be alert for the driveway when entering... we had to lap the block the first time after missing the entrance!
The property is located quite close to the night club area of Maroochydore, so also be aware that you can hear the noise associated with that well into the night...but it honestly didn't impact our stay at all.
This motel is one I'd certainly stay at again!

We selected Top Spot Motel, as it suited our budget, location is very central… within walking distance to Sunshine Plaza, the Restaurant Strip of Maroochydore and Maroochy River / Cotton Tree Beach. I was greeted by very friendly, welcoming staff and too keen to help you, to make your stay comfortable. Well laid out, our motel room was spacious, very clean, has all the necessities you need (body wash / shampoo, coffee/tea condiments, air con and the necessary appliances), to make your stay comfortable, plus free parking, right in front of our motel door. We were only there for an overnight stay, a place to rest, very comfortable bed and pillows, which met our requirements and we had a good night’s sleep which gave me the much-needed boost, to help with our four-hour travel ahead of us. I recommend Top Spot Motel - comfortable place to rest, conveniently close to town which you get “top notch” quality with that budget friendly price. I can’t fault this motel, it’s perfectly designed for travellers, especially for tourists… walking distance to town and close to public transport.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. So handy to the CBD, plaza’s and cafes. Well laid out and spacious units with everything that was needed including comfortable bed and sofa and milk already in the fridge. Friendly and helpful host with options for meals in the area.

Room tip: Plenty of parking - but can walk everywhere in the downtown area and beach reserves
