An old style unit complex but very clean and located right on the beach front. Bed was comfy and Queen size which was great. (Not sure why there is so many negative reviews perhaps it was previous owners but we had no complaints) $95 a night was great value and check in etc was friendly. Car parking on site, would definite recommend for a good nights rest as was not noisy and close enough to town for eats etc

This place is in such a beautiful location but the unit we stayed in was in desperate need of maintenance. Broken kitchen tap, broken towel rail, gas stove not working properly, chairs about to break, toilet seat not attached properly. The staff are absolutely wonderful - we reported the issues to them and they said they’d told the owner many times. The other issue was that direct beach access was fenced off by council working in the area.

Yes it is an old motel however it was super clean which is all I really care about as we were only staying a night. Priced at $95 is was great value. Located right on the beach front & an easy drive to anywhere in Bowen. Free parking. We stayed on lower level. Room had a very comfortable queen bed and one of only a few motels in Bowen that does as we rang several others before finding this one with a queen bed. Had plenty of hot water for a shower and had a TV that swivelled around so we could watch it in bed if we wanted. Check in was pleasant so no complaints & very happy with the value for money

There is so much accomodation in Bowen and we had to pick the worst 🤦‍♀️. It was dirty, smelly and the mould on the walls was an absolute disgrace. Yes it is old and dated which I don’t mind, but this is no excuse for being dirty and the mould was disturbing to say the least, can’t be good for ones health. The location is all it has going for it... if I had looked at it prior to paying I wouldn’t have stayed there. Very disappointing.

Myself and my friends had a lovely stay at Beachside Units. Amazing location on the beach and a short drive to woolies. The rooms were clean and the beds are very comfortable. The manager is amazing. He is one of the nicest person we have ever met. Very helpful with everything we needed.
Thanks for a lovely stay George.

Just awful, cobwebs all over, including some with spiders, lizard running across floor under what they would call a couch? No water pressure, furniture so old and filthy. Some sort of little insects biting all night.. Maybe if they don't gut them and refurb, they may like to get pest control in at least.. Road is very busy and noisy at night also. Don't be fooled by photo's on any of the booking sites, as that's not what you will get when you arrive. Just want to forget the experience and angry we got ripped off.

Booked in for 2 nights, arrived after dark on first night. Next morning went to take kids for a swim in the pool, only to find it was unsafe. Above ground pool, timber missing from decks, frames holding pool were rusted, water in pool really dirty. Spoke to manager and checked out going to the Caravan park close by where the cabin was clean and the pool amazing. I sought to get a refund for the 2nd night, however manager refused. Went to the office of fair trading but this was a waste of time, as the managers would not communicate with them and went underground on this.
