Booked well in advance for a 4 night stay and paid over $90 / night non-refundable. I was in Room 17 - their BEST room! Absolute hell hole. Bed should be condemned along with foul smelling, old blankets and pillows. Doors and windows wouldn't lock so had to get manager to cut wood to place behind them. Doors all swollen...

We stayed at the Anchorage for 2 nights. We only booked 1week earlier due to a change in our travel plans. The room was clean and was basically what we needed for the time. Husband and daughter went swimming in the pool. 1 comment I could make was there was no hairdryer or fan in the bathroom but this seems...

Friendly staff, but the motel needs a renovation it's pretty old.Rooms were fairly comfortable but the pillows were thin.A bit to much noise from traffic. The air conditioner was very noisy, we had to have it off most of the time to hear the TV.

Tired place, needs a complete reno. Old bathrooms, everything 1970s era, very noisy. Its not that far from the city of Caloundra but its on the main road, and the traffic noise is unbearable of a morning. Better options elsewhere and at better prices if you can get it. The price is VERY expensive for what you get, far better...

Awesome nights stay. Nice and clean room. Fan switch was broken but that was due to the previous occupants not informing staff. Friendly staff. Comfy bed. Air con was nice & cool I'm not. I enjoyed the pool.

I booked this online and I was charged a fee of $98 when I arrived the lady on reception tried to charge me $128 because she thought I wanted a late check out of 1 pm. That was not the case but I did ask for a 10.30 am check out and had to argue to get that extra 30...

Wanting a weekend away at short notice, we googled and found not a lot available. We knew Anchorage was further away from the city centre than what we are used to but decided to give it a go anyway. The lady on the front desk was lovely and friendly and our appointed car park was very generous in width. The...
