Comfortable, clean rooms. Close to everything that Caloundra has to offer. The host even took my bags up to my room! The Owner/Manager went out of his way to make sure that you had everything you needed for an enjoyable stay. I would definitely recommend this Motel to all.

I have visited this establishment occasionally over the last 25-30 years. I will not stay anywhere else in Caloundra. The new owner, Ken, actually offered to take my luggage to my room. Really? Who does that? The changes he has made are exciting, soothing, comfortable and welcoming. It's great to see a manager that will actually enforce rules concerning smoking,...

A couple of blocks from the Main Street and beach. Room has everything you need: microwave, fridge, some crockery and cutlery, comfortable bed, quiet air conditioner, iron, hair dryer, toaster. It's a bit dated and there is no view but comfortable with good hot shower, space in the bathroom, small table and chairs to eat at. Parking is mainly under...

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 Room is basic and outdated with some improvements to the bathroom.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...

It was very clean, soft towels, tea and coffee making and aircon. Beds were comfortable, bathroom reasonably spacious . It was...

Reviewed 6 November 2016 via mobile

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.

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!
