Most resorts, motels, etc. are given a star rating (out of a max of 5-stars) to showcase the location’s ability to provide quality facilities for its guests.

This is not related to the number of facilities, rather just the overall quality. This helps guests know just how cozy a certain lodging option might be.

This motel is rated 3-stars which isn’t too bad. While it certainly is smaller than other choices in the area, guests will still receive some basic facilities and access to great local surroundings based on its location on the esplanade.

Another approach to looking at the rating of a location for accommodation includes guest ratings. These ratings should always be taken with common sense in mind since not everyone will do proper reviews.

But when checking out this motel, Google users rate it 4.1 stars with almost a hundred reviews. Overall, the experience is positive.

Most guests compliment the location on its access to the beach, cleanliness, and customer service. Those are all big perks to having a positive experience.

Room Types

This motel only has three types of rooms. Once again, these include a standard queen or twin and a deluxe room.

The rooms seem to be recently updated with their decor which includes plain white bedspreads.

The deluxe rooms have red and black colourings along with splashes of white and all rooms seem to have a narrow seating table along the walls that sit across from the beds.

In addition, the deluxe rooms have small kitchenettes complete with full-sized fridges, microwaves, and cooktop stoves. This is great for prepping a meal for those who enjoy cooking their own meals.

As expressed before, the queen and twin rooms do have full-sized fridges in them. This is a great perk because most fridges in hotel rooms are too small to accommodate things like certain sized drinks or food items.

The queen and twin rooms feature queen and twin beds and walk-in showers. The deluxe room features a queen and a single bed as well as an ensuite bathroom.

The price tags on these rooms (for one night’s stay for two guests) are as follows:

  • Standard Queen: $89
  • Standard Twin: $99
  • Deluxe: $109

All rates are subject to change based on availability and peak seasons (or off-seasons).

The esplanade is one of the most popular things in Hervey Bay. It’s a path that stretches from Urangan all the way up the eastern coast to Point Vernon, for approximately 17km.

The Urangan Pier is nearby as well as a famous fishing pier. Its long history with the area has helped it stay maintained and during the 1900s it was used for transportation of timber, sugar, and coal.

While it doesn’t serve as a transportation hub for these items anymore, it is thoroughly enjoyed as a fishing spot for serious fishermen or those looking for a lazy fishing day.
