The location of the motel is great, handy for the main street of Caloundra and the markets on Sunday morning. We were in the room (Room 10) behind reception so I don't know what the other rooms are like. The room was comfortable and very basic but we were only there to sleep so that was OK. It is not...

Hi SD E, We are star rated as 3.5 stars not 4 and not 5 and our prices are set accordingly to the rooms as they are all different. We offer clean and comfortable rooms which are serviced daily and with friendly and very knowledgeable staff. As far as hearing any voices in reception, I find that very unusual as...

I would say most reviews are genuine here. The owners Ken and his wife go out of their way to be friendly and check you are OK. Room is basic and outdated with some improvements to the bathroom. Bed typically "hotel hard", but hey when are they ever not? However TV remote worked, always a bonus. It was very clean...

Hi Aussieqld8, Yes the motel is an older style motel and we are constantly making changers to the rooms and to the outside. When it comes time to replace a mattress I replace them with a firm one not a soft or a hard one as I try to please everyone. All of our remotes are checked daily but if...

We stayed at this motel recently after a day at Australia Zoo. It is an older style motel very close to the Centre of Caloundra . Ten minute walk to beach and cafes and the centre of town . It was very clean, soft towels, tea and coffee making and aircon. Beds were comfortable, bathroom reasonably spacious . It was...

Recommend a stay here. Our room was clean and fresh even though older style. The best thing was the attention to detail over and above what I would expect from a 3-star motel. There was a shower cap - nothing worse than trying to shower and keep hair dry. Conversely there was a hairdryer if needed. There was a microwave...

The motel is dated but very clean and comfortable. I have stayed twice in Room 2 and this time in Room 1 both being almost identical. The rooms are very clean with a fridge, tea and coffee provided. There is a microwave and air con. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Best of all it is a reasonable price...

We booked three rooms for an overnighter on the Sunny Coast for a family get-together. The rooms were clean and comfortable and provided all we needed for a relaxing stopover. I would have no hesitation recommending the City Centre Motel as a great place to stay a night in Caloundra!

From the time we entered the office & were greeted by Ken to leaving we felt welcomed. Not the flashiest motel but very clean, comfortable and in an excellent location. Only a short walk to restaurants, shops & the beach. Close enough but far enough away from the bustle, very quiet with off street parking. Will be returning.

As we were attending a weekend event across the road this little motel was in the absolute perfect location, also easy walk to shops & restaurants. We really only needed a comfortable bed & a shower , so after going through the reviews I booked here. It was wonderful to see that the majority of reviewers were spot on. This...

This is very handy motel, close to everything. It is only a few streets away from Bulcock St ( the Main Street ) it's very clean, and we were met by a very obliging manager. The motel was booked out the night we stayed. I'd come here again for an overnight stay.
