Comfortable, clean, family room. One of the nicest we have stayed in. Kids were thrilled with 2 bunk beds to argue over. Helpful staff. Very handy for the beach. Useful fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle and towels provided etc will definitely be back, thank you.

Our stay at Tin Can Bay Motel was very enjoyable, I booked three rooms for family members including a puppy, we all enjoyed the fact that it was not on a main road, it was very peaceful, the resident dog played with the puppy and catching the frisbee for us. Will definitely stay there again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tin Can Bay Motel. The Cooloola region has a lot to offer and the motel is located centrally and is close to all local amenities . The staff were very friendly/helpful and the motel was extremely well maintained. Rooms for families are very reasonably priced.

Tin Can Bay Motel – good place to stay in Tin Can Bay. Getting to the point of needing renovation but more than adequate for the price and a nice big room with plenty of space. Facilities good, clean, location excellent, owners pleasant. Beautiful dog Rollo a highlight.
