Nice spacious room fully equipped fantastic fridge freezer and aircon! Great BBQ area as well! Also a small table and chairs right outside the room where you can smoke. When we arrived the lady was lovely and couldn't be more helpful, there's a big Woolworths 8k down the road too, highly recommend!

We had a lovely 2 night stay at the Tin Can Bay Motel with our 2 small children. It's in a great location right across from the water. The staff are so lovely and catered to all of our needs. The pool was a massive hit with our son :)

Our room was basic and dated but extremely clean and had everything we needed. Big plus was the fantastic aircon. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and were helpful and on hand at all times, day and night. Rollo their dog was a delight too.

The staff were very friendly and accomodating but the room had cobwebs, filthy skirting boards and mouldy shower grout. If you just need somewhere to sleep then this does the job but you can do better.

Even if you want to visit Rainbow Beach you would...

This is a lovely place to stay. Very clean and the staff is outstanding friendly. We enjoyed it very much, and would come back to stay there any time again. At 8 a clock in the morning you are able to feet the dolphins just a few minutes with the car away. Great Place to stay 👍

We were so excited to bring our dog on holiday with us. We loved meeting the Border Collie that lives in the motel. Everyone was really lovely and we were given lots of recommendations of places to go and see, including feeding the dolphins! Great place to stay!
