We always choose this motel to stay at on our way to Fraser Island. The Woolworths at Cooloola is 10 minutes away for our shop, the room is huge for our family of five, great air conditioning and always a friendly smile when checking in. Pool is great and wifi and price is awesome.

Nice spacious room fully equipped fantastic fridge freezer and aircon! Great BBQ area as well! Also a small table and chairs right outside the room where you can smoke. When we arrived the lady was lovely and couldn't be more helpful, there's a big Woolworths 8k down the road too, highly recommend!

We had a lovely 2 night stay at the Tin Can Bay Motel with our 2 small children. It's in a great location right across from the water. The staff are so lovely and catered to all of our needs. The pool was a massive hit with our son :)

Our room was basic and dated but extremely clean and had everything we needed. Big plus was the fantastic aircon. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and were helpful and on hand at all times, day and night. Rollo their dog was a delight too.

The staff were very friendly and accomodating but the room had cobwebs, filthy skirting boards and mouldy shower grout. If you just need somewhere to sleep then this does the job but you can do better.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Very clean motel room with all we needed inside. Friendly owners (including Rollo the sheep dog). The gardens are well maintained and although this motel is not on the main drag it is suitably close to waterfront etc. Would definately stay here again. Even if you want to visit Rainbow Beach you would...

We stayed for one night, several family members booked rooms to have a small family reunion. There is a nice pool area and BBQ which we were able to use. The owners were friendly and the rooms were clean and had everything we needed. The bonus was being able to take our dogs along with us and there is a...
