#15 of 42 hotels in Townsville
Boasting a water slide for the kids in a cool resort style pool, the Billabong Lodge Motel is now under NEW MANAGEMENT. We have undergone a major refurbishment which now sees 43 inch SMART TV's in most rooms, with 50 inch in Deluxe Family rooms, Super Fast, Premium FREE WIFI, Luxurious beds, undercover parking, and a Guest Laundry. Close to both Hospitals in Townsville, and only a short drive to the city. Major shopping centres are within 5 minutes, and a plethora of restaurants and food very close by. Our rooms are soundproofed, so you can enjoy a quiet time here. Most rooms are equipped with Kitchenettes, and we also have a BBQ in the pool area. Come and experience a great motel, with amazing staff to match. We look forward to welcoming you :)

Very clean and tidy place, if you are looking for a good price for professional staff and down to earth caretaker which will look after your needs of a great stay , we had to change our trip to Brisbane and the service he had given was outstanding as we have been here twice and the first time we left a professional photo in his room of my daughter and he rang us to assure that the picture was there and safe and it was like he treated it like it was a personal picture that he brought, he's standards are exactly how he stated it in the ads , well done billabong lodge motel you guys are a blessing when it comes to looking after there guests, 10/10 for us and we will be there every time I go to Townsville, people he is the real deal

Great little motel, hands down THE BEST mattress i have ever slept on, it was softer than a cloud. Clean and cosy room with small kitchenette, smart tv and strong wifi for streaming. Owner was a nice chap who was very accomadating as I had arrived in a hurry for a family emergency not knowing how long i would be there for, plus it is reasonably close to the hospital.

Arrived here without a booking and was looked after swiftly. Given a family room that was huge with an enormous smart TV to boot..Our room was very clean and tidy, with everything you need in the way of utensils, microwave,.kitchenette etc. The beds here are better than most 5 star places we have stayed at, didn't want to get out of it😁. The shower pressure was strong and the the kids enjoyed the pool ,also has a waterslide. Had a fantastic time here and the managers were wonderful in their interactions with us, couldn't have been more helpful. Give this place a try, you won't be disappointed.

We have stayed at many motels over the years, and we thought we might give the Billabong a try after a bad experience at another motel on Bowen Road, and we were very happy we did. The rooms are huge, with a kitchenette, great aircon, good wifi and a big TV and very clean.Parking is undercover. The bed was super comfortable and the service from the managers and staff was first rate. We had such a relaxing time here and will definitely be back.

Big Screen Smart TV, strong wifi. Amazing beds, powerful shower, pool with waterside and laundry facilities, what more could you ask for. The place is so clean and recently refurbished. The beds are so comfortable and the staff here are so friendly and polite. A great fish and chip shop and Chinese restaurant across the road with shopping centre's close. The kids had a great time on the slide in the pool. All in all, felt like a home away from home.
