Stayed here one night and had an ensuite room which had icy air con (it was a hot day) and the bed was great and the room was quiet. This motel is a little like a backpackers with some rooms with communal showers etc. and their is a big communal kitchen/eating area. We were just across from the beach and...

This motel was very clean. For budget hotel it was a pleasant stay. Rooms not very large. But quite and convenient location. All freshly painted and clean. Large shower in a decent bathroom. Would stay again

Was nice and clean in a convenient location Asked for a quiet room but got one at head of stairs but was remarkably quiet so had a good sleep. Reasonably priced and well looked after. Parking was a bit limited but OK

We stayed for a weekend and had a good time but the rooms are very small (we were out a lot) The service was great the communal kitchen well appointed. It was spotlessly clean and fitted the bill for us.

We had a great night's rest at this motel. The room was small, but very clean and due to strict rules, we never heard a peep all night. We had a wonderful stay! The kitchen is very well equipped and spotless. We recommend this budget motel to anyone looking for a good nights rest.

We booked a nights stay back in January to stay on Good Friday. Although we booked through a booking company it did not say minimum nights stay. We only just received notification directly from the hotel that we cannot stay the date we wanted to... 2 weeks before Easter so now there will be little chance of us finding any...

It appears that this place is now called "Coolum Budget Accommodation". It's a kind of Motel. This place is close to the beach and a quick walk into Coolum town centre. It's handy and the price is right. We got several rooms during the January School holidays for around $140.00 per room. These were double rooms with bathroom. There are...

The staff at Coolum Budget Accommodation are very friendly and act as though they want you to enjoy your stay. The man at the reception was very informative about what to do and where to eat around Coolum beach. The rooms are of a decent size and are very clean and tidy, which is good because we have stayed in...

I stayed at this motel yesterday with my 2 young children. To be honest, I would not recommend staying here if you have young children, as the room we stayed in (en suite room) was very small - it fitted 2 single beds in it which you could just walk around. I would recommend this motel however if there are...

We stayed for 2 nights. The room was small but included everything you you need and it was very clean. Only 5 minute walk to restaurants/ shops and beach. The manager is friendly, welcoming and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay!
