This motel is to be demolished in a months time.

Pros: Not much.
Cons: Overpriced for what you get
The motel is used as a boarding house and has a lot of semi permanents

Pros: NOT A THING...
Cons: A bulldozer could improve it !!!!
Location: Who cares....
We stayed here just one night, definitely on night too many and trust me it will never happen again. I didn't see many picks on the WOTIF site which should have been the red flag... the room size was find but I didn't like the fact when I went to make a cup of tea the cockroaches didn't appreciate the disturbance and started running everywhere. I also didn't like seeing the fossilized gecko on the toilet wall either. Apparently this is an upmarket room as we paid a littl higher rate on the net that what a walk in would pay??? Boy I wouldn't like to see the those rooms if these are the good ones????

The place is quite run down. On the down side, Poor tv reception, no mobile phone reception in room, no hair dryer. But the room was a good size. It had a sofa, table and chairs, a small fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, iron and ironing board. The pool was nice, It was close to a bus stop, the Catholic Church and restaurants.

Good, comfortable Motel.

Pros: easy to find. good price.
Location: on a main road and central to the many attractions on the Sunshine coast.
We had no negatives about this motel, the room was clean, plenty of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits in the room. plenty of hot water for showers. The grounds are well maintained and a decent size pool for guests, plenty of our door seating too. Easy to find and easy access on a main road and only minutes to the beach and small shops close by. A budget price for the Sunshine coast too.

1970s Motel in Need of Renovation

Pros: Location.
Cons: A 2 million dollar make-over.
I booked in for 1 night having pre-paid. Entering my motel room, I decided NOT to stay overnight but on my friends' couch .. out of sheer desperation. Everything is worn and shabby. The bed caved in. Its cover felt as if it had been put on 20 years ago and was never washed. The motel feels uncared for. 'Permanent Residents' roam the grounds and seek conversations. Another world.

The second worst place I have ever stayed

Pros: The gardens are nice.
Cons: Knock the place down and start again.
Location: It is in a good location in the centre of Buderim. Lots of cafes and shops nearby and quick drive to the beach.
This place is old and in very poor condition. In short, it is a dump - paint peeling from the ceiling, battered old furniture, scared and peeling basin and shower, broken toilet lid, bed lights that do not work (not just bulbs blown - the lights do not work), ancient and noisy air conditioner, damaged carpet, bed spread that was ripped and starting to fall apart.

Close to facilities and several beaches

Pros: Thee grounds and pool were good
Cons: Replace furniture, TV and a good clean
Location: Close to Buderim township and shops. Easy access to good beaches and excellent tourist areas
Very disappointing. Mould on shower tiles and round refrigerator seal. Fan worked on one speed only and was noisy, TV like a lap top screen and furniture worn and ancient
