Shelly Beach Motel may look a little old on the out side but it is amazing on the inside. It fitted all 5 of us comfortably and it was very nice. It has a big back yard out the back and a fenced yard out the front. We really enjoyed staying there as the lady that checked us in was lovely. It was very homely and it was definitely value for money.

I stayed here regularly during 2017 due to work commitments in the area. After a big day arriving at the motel was like coming home. Debra and Teena are the most welcoming and genuinely caring hosts I have encountered. Each room at the motel has a distinct personality and is spotlessly clean. Parking is easy, the grounds are beautiful and there is a quirky little rotunda bbq area where guests can meet and relax surrounded by pots of flowers and a wheelbarrow garden. Shelves of books and magazines are in prominent spots where you can help yourself to the reading matter. The rooms themselves have microwaves, fridges, cutlery, crockery and all the essentials for eating in comfort. The rooms are right across from the water and restaurants, cafes, shops etc are located not too far away. All in all a wonderful place to stay!

We really enjoyed staying here. You really feel Debra loves her motel and puts her heart in it’s maintenance.
The room was comfortable, perfectly clean with a lovely terrace with seaview.
Breakfast is available if you like.
The warm welcome, the help we got for our trip to Fraser was really appreciated!
The motel is very well situated.

Bright, airy rooms with plenty of space. The balcony was great to sit outside in the sun, with a glimpse of the ocean through the trees. Super clean and the owner was really friendly and helpful. Great location. Only negative the bed was too hard (personal preference) and at times we could hear the room next door through the wall.

Teena made check in and out extremely easy for our 3 night stay.
The motel appears dated but it is extremely clean and the beds were really comfortable. Our bathroom had recently been refurbished.
The units have everything to meet your basic needs during your stay but kitchen facilities (oven or stove top) would be preferable for a longer stay. There is a full sized fridge which was very handy.
Teena was very informative about appropriate tours/ activities and I would highly recommend this place to stay in Hervey Bay.
