River Esplanade Motel
Ranked #11 of 16 Hotels in Mooloolaba
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Stayed over for a couple of nights while my boyfriend was working nights. Was a very comfortable room, nice comfy bed, good TV, clean bathroom with lovely shower and mini fridge. You can park outside your room and it was nice and quiet in the evenings and mornings. I felt save staying there all night on my own which isn't the case at some Motels.

The location is great, just a very short walk from the beach and shops and the underwater world. Staff seemed friendly although I didn't really speak to them much.

Would defo stay there again.

Rooms were clean spacious and comfortable. This motel has a great location is near the beach, and restaurants along the esplanade. Free parking right next to the room was very appreciated. Owners were nice and helpful.

We checked-in around 7pm when the reception was already closed, but a short phone call and we got into the room. The room was clean and pretty much had everything you need for one night. The downside of the motel is the backpacker hostel next door. Lots of noise until late at night. Good if you want to party, bad if you want to sleep.

Have stayed at the River Esplanade a few times now and never been disappointed: it is in a quiet location close to the river and a very easy stroll to the beach, the many restaurants along the Esplanade and Underwater World.
Rooms are smallish but always spotless; park at the door.
There is a separate kitchen with more than adequate cooking/catering facilities, though it doesn't seem to get used a lot (and also tends to smell a bit of old cooking oil). Ironing facilities also in kitchen.

Sure the room was a bit small but more than enough for one night! Very clean and plenty of parking. Most of all it was quiet - no traffic noise such a break after my busy day. An easy walk to the Surf Club and all the cafes and restaurants. Short walk to Underwater World and the Beach. A great spot for a short stay and not expensive. All good for a short stay

Arrived quite late in mooloolaba and booked through booking.com (booked at about 5 in the afternoon that same day). Wow, so surprised with a cheaper motel. Great service, fantastic location and clean, comfortable rooms. Definitely going to stay here again next time.
