Best value & cleanest accommodation in Port! We didn't want to splash out $300+ for an overnight stay which is typical in this tourist town, so we were pleasantly surprised to find this little gem at a very reasonable tarrif! The Port Douglas Motel is spotlessly clean, bright & very comfortable, and our room was surprisingly spacious with a sofa and dining table. It's in a great location for easy walking to the shops, restaurants and beach, and our room was super quiet at night time ensuring we had a restful sleep.

Never have I ever stayed at a hotel with such amazing hospitality and friendly staff. My girlfriend and I were originally going to stay one night there. After realising the incredible prices and the great conditions of rooms, shared areas and location we decided to extend our stay for another 2 nights and Jenny was great at accomodating this for us.Moreover, during our checkout we realised it would be hard to find an Uber to go back to Cairns and both Jenny and Lucila offered their help and arranged a shuttle for us in just a couple of minutes.I work in the hospitality industry myself and this is probably the best experience I have ever seen and received. I highly recommend this place and will definitely stay here again when I go back to Port Douglas!Thanks a lot guys for making this experience unforgettable ❤️- Fernando & Rinka

Great location, close to the beach and the main shopping center. Rooms bright and clean, nice little pool with a BBQ and other cooking equipment, very quiet and the best thing was the friendly and helpful staff - was perfect.

jsmith01 June 2022

A great little motel right at the centre of things but not noisy. Cheerful friendly staff, responsive to our needs. Easy after hours check in. The ground floor queen room we used was funky, definitely not beige, spacious & comfortable for a couple. The outdoor under cover kitchen & dining area beside the pool made this a perfect place for a stay of a few days where we were not eating out every night.

Jelizabethl6 May 2022

Do yourself a favour and stay at this motel in Port Douglas. No negatives at all. Close to the main street and eateries. Staff were pleasant. We highly recommend and will definitely be back next time we are in Port Douglas.

Recently stayed here for the week and what an awesome little place!! Location is great with a 2 minute walk to the town centre. Extremely tidy room (we were upstairs) and had a King and Single bed. Decent size room with enough space for us to be more than comfortable. Shower had wall mounted Shampoo/Condition/Body wash that all smelt lovely. Air conditioning in the room didn't miss a beat and we had it going 24/7 along with a ceiling fan. The pool was a good size considering the size of the accommodation. The kitchen is amazing!! BBQ and stove with a large bench area. Also a cupboard which contained saucepans, baking dishes, chopping boards, kitchen utensils and anything else you may need for cooking. Did a load of washing ($6) and hung it out on the line behind the laundry to dry. You could pay another $6 to put it all through the dryer but was a nice day. We grabbed a few towels from reception upon arrival for the pool. If I had to pick on something I would say the parking is quiet tight. It seems everyone reverses into them so its easy to just drive out but there isn't much room to move. A few nights other guests had big 4wd's and we could barely get in/out of the parking. If I had the option I would have just parked out the front for the day rather than maneuver the parking everytime we went out. Wouldn't deter us staying here again though!! Also the reception area has a great range of travel brochures which came in handy.

Kaalo wrote a review on 23 Apr. 2021 Batemans Bay, Australia177 contributions141 helpful votesRemnant of a missed era. 35 years passed since my last vist to Port. Loved it. On this visit the big decision was where to stay. A huge range of options.Apartments. Condominiums. Retreats. Resorts.All very generic. Each had consulted the thesaurus to add to dramatic superlatives of their properties. Getting disillusioned already.....Then we stumbled on the Port Douglas Motel. No need for pretentious descriptions. Instead a plethora of 5 star reviews from all platforms.And a realistic price? Too good to be true perhaps?Woohoo! It was great. An honest motel which the owners, staff and guests show obvious pride.Immaculately clean. Practical furnishings. Only the mod cons you need. An excellent outdoor kitchen alongside an inviting pool. Comprehensive tour desk.Not for everyone. Only those who appreciate extremely good value. Probably other places have more kudos but why then did I count at least 3 people taking photos of the quirky artwork at the motel frontage.Personally it should be heritage listed. As an example of good clean honest accommodation.Well done to you all!

First time visiting Port Douglas and had a lovely stay in this stunning immaculate comfortable and greatly located establishment! The staff were extremely friendly and thank you to Marie for recommending some great restaurants in the area upon arrival! Everything was immaculately clean which I loved!!! The decor of the room to all the amenities in the room were great!


We stayed for 2 nights and the accommodation was great. Lillian was lovely greeting us and nothing was any trouble. The BBQ and outdoor kitchen facilities are brilliant. We had friends staying there with their 3 kids and they loved the pool area. Would definitely stay again.

Steeri D

I can only agree with all the other excellent reviews on here. Our room was clean, comfortable with everything we needed. Great location which meant we could walk everywhere within the town. Really friendly and helpful staff on reception. Would definitely stay here again


This place is awesome! The location is perfect, one block from the main street. They have a nice size pool and really great cooking facilities outside under cover with a fan. Each room has toaster, kettle, microwave & fridge. Rooms are very clean and modern. Front desk was very helpful too - will return for sure!!

Our reason for the Post Douglas stay was to witness the Wedding of a beautiful couple but turned out to be so much more. From the moment we arrived, were made most welcomed. When stairs were an issue, we were moved to ground leave Lillian, Jenny and others all did there best and it was very much appreciated. Had a great time & really clean and spacious. Thank you.

Liz Picking

We found our stay at the motel to be one of the greatest we have done. The staff was excellent , the rooms were very neat and kept very clean. The location was great, close to the four mile beach, the town, the harbour, all within a 5 minute walk. The motel had a great swimming pool, with a great cooking area, with table and chairs, all under cover and use for all motel guest. The town is what we call a great walking town and a lot of activity at night.

Ray & Diann Merrill

As part of our Australia round trip we (unfortunately only) spent two nights in Port Douglas, in this motel. We were greeted warmly and had super nice and functional rooms. The motel is in close proximity (max 5 minutes walk) to the harbor and city center, so ideal for walking and exploring Port Douglas. By car we explored the area (Daintree ...). All in all ... our recommendation.

Bernd Kasper

We were more than happy with our accommodation. This motel has everything you need from entertainment area to quality retro furnished rooms. Only 2 min walk to Main Street for dining. Quiet location we will be back.

Patricia Bick

Fantastic, friendly, happy lady in office who was also very informative. I needed budget accomodation for only 1 night and I got more than I expected. Room very retro style, lovely and very comfortable and clean. I loved the fact they have blue towels instead of white. Just around the corner from shops and bars. I would recommend this to anyone and I will be back if I ever come to Port Douglas again.

Kristina Eriksson

I chose the Port Douglas Motel because it looked good online( modern, colourful, quirky), location (centre of town), local family run business (professional service with a personal touch), affordable and the online reviews were really positive. This establishment well and truly lived up to expectations. It's a fabulous place to stay. Spotlessly clean. Friendly and helpful service. I highly recommend
