we had the ocean view room and it was roomy and clean and up to date. the location was excellent as it was right on the forshore / boardwalk. plenty of places to eat all within walking distance, lots of activates along the foreshore if u have kids, free water park etc.

Going by the pictures posted of the rooms by other guests, there seems to be 2 different types of rooms at this place; old and ancient budget rooms and then a renovated section. I wish I had taken pictures now, but our room was nothing like that pictured, our room was old and out dated with a 1950's bathroom that was falling to bits. We only needed somewhere to rest at night that was cheap and located close to the Strand and it fit the bill. I hope the rest of the rooms will be getting renovated, as this would become a very lucrative budget accommodation option given it's excellent location.

Fantastic location, stumbled upon this motel opposite the rockpool 's in Townsville, very clean, has everything you need, didn't have to ask for plates ect, all provided.
Took a swim in their pool, slightly elevated to catch the breeze.
We will be coming back to this one. Lovely reception.

Room tip: All good, we stayed at the back but no road noise heard

This Motel seems to be in the process of renovating - our room was mid process - the bed and bedside tables appeared new but the remainder of the room was very dated. Clean and functional- aircon, TV, lights all in working order. The best feature of Shoredrive is the location, right on the Rock Pool end of the Strand, walking distance to many Restaurants , Pubs and Coffee Shops . The Strand is a beautiful family area that has crowds of people taking advantage of the beautiful climate and activities on offer in the area.

Room tip: Ask for a fully renovated room or if you are looking for budget the room will reflect the price.
