Vanessa and Kai are fantastic hosts, very friendly and cannot do enough for their guests. The rooms are spacious, have been well maintained and very clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully manicured with a lovely pool and bbq area Location is great just down the road from Big Pineapple, the township of Woombye and many other sunshine coast tourist locations. 6 of our 5 stars review from us. Will return. Thanks for making our 5 night stay so great.

The location was very convenient for where we needed to go. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and easy to access from the undercover car space outside our rooms and easy access to the pool or outdoor garden BBQ area.


The room was clean and comfortable! The location was good. The facilities nice to make a BBQ and enjoy the pool. The team members nice and really friendly.


Good place to rest if you are planning on being out during the day, nice to come back and relax outside and by the pool. from this location we did trips to Noosaville (30mins), Aus Zoo (30 mins) and Maleny (30mins), Maroochydore Cinemas (20mins)

My dog and I had to travel to the Sunshine Coast for an appointment with specialist vet surgeon. The motel was the most pet friendly of all the ones where we stayed. A pet bed was provided as well as bowls for food and water. There was also an area set aside for pets to do their business and access to walks around the area. Nearby Woombye had many amenities and the pub allowed pets to be present on part of the balcony. Check in time is 2.00 pm.

Hosts Paul and his wife were very welcoming and super friendly.
The room was spacious and very clean with a pleasant aspect.
They went above and beyond in giving assistance with an urgent matter after hours.
I appreciated their help very much.
Nothing was too much trouble.


Great place for Jimmy our boxer and he loved it! So hard to find a good place to stay when you have a dog and you’re like an oasis in a desert!
Thanks again!

It’s a very nice hotel. Friendly staff. Amazing bacon and eggs breakfast. Very happy with the service.


Very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly.


We very much enjoyed our recent stay at SCML. Lovely clean and spacious room, equipped with everything a family would need for a comfortable stay. Hosts Jackie and Stuart were a mine of information for local sightseeing and information and the coffee is great!
Thanks guys: we look forward to our next visit. Best wishes from Andrea and Ross.

I honestly thought that caring, committed business owners were virtually extinct. Not so, they are thin on the ground but this business is a relic basing their ideals on cleanliness and good old fashioned service. No guessing where I’ll be staying again. Darryl and Pat.

Wow this placed has really improved since the last time I visited. The new owners have made some great improvements to the property and their customer service and breakfast is outstanding! Thanks for welcoming us, and making our stay so pleasurable and accommodating for the kids.

We have just returned from an overnight getaway at the Sunshine Coast and I have to say our choice of accommodation couldn’t have been more perfect. The host was a beautiful Lady who ensured our stay was relaxed and comfortable. The grounds were so beautifully laid out that I couldn’t resist photographing them. As a photographer, I found it tranquil and peaceful and so photogenic. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others and we are considering staying again when next we need a relaxing retreat. Beds Comfy, Rooms Spacious, No noise anywhere so easily fell asleep and its close to everything. No complaints whatsoever and THANKYOU for an amazing weekend getaway.

We’ve just returned after having an overnight stay at the Sunshine Coast Motor Lodge. We found the rooms to be very spacious, particularly the shower recess. This is great when you have an octogenarian who requires the use of a wheelie walker. Overall we found the motel to be clean and tidy, with well kept grounds and represented fantastic value for money. We would have no hesitation in recommening this motel to all our friends.

Stayed here on my last trip up the coast for a wedding. Lovely clean rooms and beautiful gardens. Even has a pet friendly room. Will bring my boy next time I come up this way. Absolutely better than putting him in the kennels. Gorgeous, the entire weekend.


I stayed here for 5 nights, really enjoyed my stay. Nice undercover carpark with a fridge and microwave in the room which was really handy. Lindy was really friendly, nice and helpful. She was always there when I needed something. The surroundings were nice and tidy, room was clean. Excellent value for money and would recommend anyone to stay here if you are around the area. Would definitely go back again.


Have stayed at SCML 3 times now and I keep coming back because the positive and friendly energy of Lindy and Steve translates into great priced, comfortably appointed, quiet, clean accommodation. Nothing is ever too much trouble and I just feel at home. SCML is located within easy access to Nambour, the Highway as well as many local and Sunshine Coast attractions. I highly recommend them. Thanks Lindy & Steve.


I stayed one night at this property and was most impressed, it’s very clean it has been updated and the owner is charming and helpful. The last time I was there was about 15 years ago, and then it was quite good but the place has been completly updated and it’s excellent value for money. I will return.


Had an amazing stay at sunshine coast motor lodge. Room was very clean and comfortable, great friendly service from staff. Beautiful garden and pool with undercover parking. Breakfast in the morning perfect! Would recommend it to everyone. Thanks for a great weekend!
