Last time I was here I had a room the size of a small wedge of cheese and the same shape. Because I asked I was upgraded to a larger room the size of a shoe box! So feeling a bit happier, however, no balcony and no view. Staff are friendly and accommodating, bar staff the same. Like the location as it's on the beach and I enjoy the morning walk or ride.

This was our first time at the Ramada Marcoola - we had purchased a 2 night package with breakfast, bottle of wine on arrival, unlimited bike and movie hire & late check out. The package included upgrade to Ocean View (if available & it was).
The room was quite comfortable - the ocean view was terrific and the fact that there was also a view of the ocean from the toilet was very novel!
The greeting and information we received on arrival was terrific. Everything was clearly explained and all staff were very helpful.
Whilst the breakfast was included in the cost it was surprising that the restaurant was not run by the motel. The breakfast was great as was the Dinner we had there.
We were very surprised that whilst the airport was almost right next door it did not disturb us in any way.
The pool and grounds were extremely well maintained and it was just a short stroll to the beach.
We enjoyed our leisurely stroll on along the beach each afternoon.
We both had a very relaxing couple of days.

The only down side is that the motel is not within an easy walk of any major shops or clubs (there is a bar and pokies venue attached to the motel).
I personally found that the bed was quite low - but this seems to be the normal rather than the exception with all hotel and motels that we have stayed in and we did not let this affect our overall rating as I considered it to be a nuisance rather than a problem.

Room Tip: Select an Ocean view if possible.

Thought this would be a nice one night getaway for my wife and I. Having stayed at Ramada hotels across the world i had come to expect a certain standard and value for money. This hotel fell well short and I would say is only a Ramada by name. When we checked in we were given a room not overlooking the beach but a rooftop and parking lot. I called and asked for a room with a view and was told I should have requested this when i booked. Right... So the hotel needs to ask customers if they prefer a sea view or carpark view... We then changed rooms, but were charged an additional $15 dollars (was $20 we negotiated to $15). The next room had a sea view but was dirty and half the size, sheets had hair and stains all over them. It was getting late...we gave on on being satisfied with our room and decided to hit the pool. They boast the pool is heated at a temp of 26c. This is clearly a lie. When we got in a 5.00pm it was freezing, we managed a few minutes and got out. They boast 'dvd players in all the rooms'. Great, but make sure you bring your own. To rent 1 of their DVDs its $7.50 each. That's right $7.50. This is normally free in most hotels or very cheap. Wait... I bet you would like to have a nice sleep in, well forget that plan also! Check out time is 10.00am. 10:00am! Not 11, not 12 but 10:00. Did I mention the huge cockroaches coming out of the drains in the bathroom or the cigerette smoke that wafts through the air vents? All this and more folks and we only stayed for 1 night. That was enough. As my title says. Don't bother people. Greedy hotels with poor service don't deserve your money in these times.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

We have now stayed at the Ramada Marcoola three times and each time we have never been disappointed. We had booked a 2 night deal to include a room with a balcony and sea view, bed & breakfast, a bottle of wine and an afternoon bike ride A great deal..
The rooms are quiet and comfortable with a small fridge and tea / coffee available. The towels and goodies were replaced daily. The heated pool is delightful and close to the restaurant, enabling an early swim and straight to breakfast on the terrace. The beach is directly in front of the hotel and easy access through the hotel's private gate. Reception staff are friendly and efficient. There is free car parking with extra wide spaces for 4wd vehicles.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony and a sea view

My husband and I went for a three night getaway to this hotel and were really surprised at the location and hotel itself. we were right on the beach, the gardens surrounding the pool were a credit to whoever tends them, well done! i have never seen such lush green grass and it was like spongy carpet underfoot!we had 180 degree views from the lovely room, overlooking the pool one way and the local shopping strip and airport the other side. The close proximity of the airport was unobtrusive. Breakfasts were a delight, I am sure we tried most fare offered, as it was all so delicious, both the buffet and a'la carte. the bar meals from the tavern adjoined to the hotel were large and tasty and inexpensive. we were there close to Easter and had we had children with us would have been happy with the kids club on site.We would definatley stay again, close to lots of wonderful attractions too on the Sunshine coast.
