Alleged Smoke Fee Motor Inn
Very disappointed, smoking allowed on adjoining balcony in a smoke free unit. Had to lock ourselves in our unit to get away from the smoke. Spoke to the Assistant Manager about the smoking and he couldn't care less. It is not a smoke free environment between unit balconies.

Nice motel well located and very comfortable.
Very tidy and comfortable motel at a good price. Well located near the marina and about 1km from the Main Street in town. Not being too close to main part of town I found good as it kept the area quite with out being too far away from anything. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and the shower had good water pressure. The balcony over looking the pool and a somewhat view of the water was good to relax on. The continental breakfast was ample to get the day started. There is no elevator so if you have a large heavy bag be prepared to carry it, it is only one flight of stair so you shouldn’t have any issues. I recommend staying here, perfect for short stays.

The dishes were dirty both the mornings we had breakfast. The air con worked great, the view was good. The lady at the front desk didn't give correct information about kayaks and jetski availability. We found out that they are available very close to the property.

Great Value, Friendly Motor Inn
We overnighted here. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a balcony looking over towards Port of Airlie. It is only a short walk (or taxi ride) into town. The included continental breakfast has a good variety of items and is taken in the restaurant with ocean views. The owners and staff are very friendly and most helpful. Will definitely stay again.
