Shoredrive Motel
Ranked #36 of 41 Hotels in Townsville
Reviewed 20 September 2016

We had room at the front with a sea view but the room was badly insulated with wooden slates in place of what had been a window. Consequently we got noise from the road and noise from the pool which was just below our window. When we arrived the toilet seat was broken and one of the windows had warped and did not close properly. We complained next morning and these were attended to immediately, but the window was still not completely closed. The balcony was tiny and there was barely room to sit at the table. The kitchen was adequately equipped with microwave etc.

Room Tip: Front rooms noisy

I stayed over for one night as was attending an Expo in Townsville. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a ground floor room next to the swimming pool with a view across to the ocean.
It was very convenient and easy to find somewhere safe to park my car.
There was a fish and chip shop across the road which sold fresh fish and chips which was delicious.
I took advantage of the warm evening and walked along The Strand which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I would recommend this motel.

Disappointed in a two bedroom unit @ 220 per night with no kitchen facilities. The fold out couch was not sleepable as mattress was all springs. No padding. Had prevously booked through Booking.com and the owner said cancel that booking and ring me for a better discount. Turns out i should have stayed with Booking.com as got charged more going direct...
2nd and 3rd rooms good with good cooking facilities. One lot charged at $155 per night, another at $145 per night and another at $125 per night (all different) same rooms???? Our Aunty stayed around the corner with a two bedroom, full kitchen for $110 per night. Not very impressed with owner. Workers were nice...

It really needs a renovation. Rooms
are very old and when someone takes a shower all the neighbours can hear it since the water is so loud. Housekeeping doesn't really do anything during the cleaning. They just empty the bin and make the linen.

We stayed here in March 2016. good room and friendly staff. Right on the Strand with swimming and restaurants nearby. not far to the main shops. Two stinger enclosures and a rosk pool. Escellent facillites on the Strand for children and adults.
