Top Spot Motel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed overnight 29/30 July 2017 - attended nephew's fiancée's 21st birthday party at a restaurant in Ocean Street, just 75 metres from this motel. We knew we would be in no condition to drive straight home from the party to Brisbane. Kerri (proprietor/receptionist) was very helpful. Our unit (15) was at the back, so no road noise - and surprisingly, very little noticeable noise from the bars and restaurants on Ocean Street. As for more info, anything I could say would only duplicate the very detailed recent review by Matty G. I commend this motel, and would definitely stay here again.

Friendly helpful hosts & staff. You get what you pay for here. This is no frills accommodation to be sure, but importantly my room was clean, well maintained, and had all the basics. Nothing is plush or upmarket but there's everything you need. Small cupboard. Couch. Table & chairs. TV. WiFi. Microwave. Kettle. Toaster. Iron & ironing board (tip under couch). Cutlery & crockery. Fridge. Hairdryer. Tea bags & instant coffee. Clean shower, toilet and bed. Enough room to move but not a huge space. See photos and you get the idea. I experienced road noise...and fairly easily heard the adjoining guests too...bessa block walls. The location is very good - easy walking distance to major shopping complex, chic urban cafe strip, Cotton Tree water front, the whole Maroochydore CBD really. I needed a friendly clean, comfortable, but cheap place to stay overnight that had the basics, and this place ticked all those boxes. A good budget accommodation option.

From the moment you arrive the managers Kerri and Mark and their staff make you feel so welcome. Very friendly and helpful. So much positive energy. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchenette, comfortable bed and a great shower. A short walk to the shops and restaurants was a huge plus. Recently completed outdoor serenity area was lovely I would highly recommend Top Spot to my friends and family and my partner and I have rebooked for a longer stay in July for business and a holiday in the 2 bedroom apartment- looking forward to our trip. Thankyou again to Kerri and Mark.

We stayed for just one night in the 2 bedroom unit. The apartment really surprised us and was actually much better than the pictures promised. Very clean, modern, spacious and great location. It's just a 2 minute stroll to the main strip and you can hear the nightlife, which didn't bother us. Thanks for a great stay!

Great location, very friendly staff who couldn't be more helpful. Older motel but very newly renovated and modern inside. Perfect for wanting to enjoy the cafes and bars around the corner or shopping across the road. I'll stay there next time up the coast.

Excellent place to stay when going out in Maroochydore - central to everything. The managers (Mark and Kerri) were extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming! We chose this place as we were seeing a live act at Solbar and the location in relation to the venue was just perfect. We will definitely stay there again :-)

We found this motel easily, the staff were very nice, also friendly and helpful. The location is awesome, next to service station shops and restaurants. 24hr video security, clean and tidy rooms. The price represents its got just what you need.

Fantastic service - very helpful staff - thank you sooo much for your hospitality :) Love the décor and friendly atmosphere - we will be staying again - Im sorry I didn't stay longer ! This is your sunshine coast relaxation - right near the water, shops, and everything tourism. Book yourself a date ! You can thank me later

I stayed here for one night, and was very pleasantly surprised. As some other reviewer's have said, the entrance and carpark is pretty standard and doesn't inspire you to enter but once you get inside the room there is a lot of care and attention. First off, the place was spotless, it would put many 5 star places to shame. The towels are soft and all the bedding smells clean. There is a little kitchenette and all the basics you need including microwave and kettle, and all the other essentials are there: iron, ironing board, hairdryer, etc. The bathroom was small but spotless and everything worked well. The 2 bedside lamps have bright lamps in them, so great for reading, much appreciated as many hotels/motels seem to have very dim lamps! The location is brilliant, a short walk to the shopping plaza, Big Top and many local restaurants. Despite being on a busy road, there was no noise at night, and for the one night I was there I could not hear any noise from other units. I would def stay here again. The owner/receptionist (Kerrie I think), is very friendly, and you get the impression nothing is too much trouble. I checked in after hours and it was all very easy. The wifi is free and fast and reliable.

Only positive thing is the location. Garden littered with empty alcohol bottles. Property advertised as 3 star, yet no phone in the room, no bedside lights, air conditioner far too small to cool the room, windows rattle and the most negative thing is the rudeness of the female owner. Prepare to pay to be abused, never again, there are much better places around where you will be valued as a paying guest.
