The Ocean View Motel is a small, family run complex located around 5km south of Bowen on the highway. The room was clean and light with a slightly dated beachy style feel. All the rooms face the pool, above which you can catch glimpses of an island and water view. Rooms include cable tv. Entrance is on a bit of a blind corner on the highway, right next door to the tourist information centre and big mango. Parking is available undercover at the door and some room service is available for dinner and breakfast. One warning is that the shower and basin were not separated from the bedroom so if you were staying with friends there would be no privacy. The shower itself was good though - old style shower head with good pressure and nice hot water. Room was good value (at $88 pn) but there is some highway noise - especially early in the morning as the trucks start to come through. Not an issue at night though. Other comments are that the pillow cases looked a bit stained and I had a (harmless) gecko in the room. Overall not too bad though for a 3.5 star motel.
