Our very first Greazefest and what a success it was. Congratulations to the organizer. Long live Elvis and those good old days when manners were standard and drugs were prescribed for ailments. Glad you enjoyed the stay and we really look forward to seeing you back with us again.

Inez very welcoming and considerate; after many days of traveling it was really nice to have a friendly welcome and advice on eateries - recommended the RSL club close by and we had a good meal there. Hotel room very clean and comfortable, thanks Inez.

Management response:

Jimmy, Passing on local knowledge to our guests makes for a more enjoyable stay (for them). It is great that your stay was such. The RSL is more like a quality restaurant, with a menu that changes four times a year with the seasons AND Bay Air Motel guests enjoy members discounts on both drinks and meals!

Reviewed 19 July 2016 via mobile

The motel is clean and basic centrally located in Cleveland. There are no facilities such as soap, shower caps, face washers or irons in the rooms. It is noisy with uneven surfaces everywhere and no breakfast facilities. The overall rating is misleading. Very disappointing.

Ironing facilities are provide in both a variety of rooms and the laundry.Shower caps, face washers and breakfast are not supplied as the demand does not warrant it. Due to our central...

We found the whole place to be clean, tidy and quiet. It is very convenient for dining at the RSL and close to all other amenities. It was a nice touch to have even a packet of biscuits left with the supply of tea and coffee and the soap was replenished daily! We felt these little touches made it more...

We decided to stay on the mainland during our recent visit to Stradbroke Island. Bay Air Motel is only a five minute walk at best to the ferry. Inez made us feel welcome right from the minute we arrived. No question was of any bother to Inez. Rooms were clean and warm. Thank you Inez.

Stuart, your review slipped through to 'the keeper'. Which is applicable as you are returning to enjoy an ODI at the Gabba in January. We eagerly await your return visit with us as you are such a friendly and positive person. A real treat to have you stay at Cleveland Bay Air Motel.

From the minute I arrived I felt at home. The rooms are spacious and immaculate. The bed and pillows like sleeping on a cloud. Travelling alone for business, I felt safe and secure. Hosts John and Inez are fabulous hosts, no request is too much trouble. I look forward to my next stay at Bay Air.
