I stayed at the Chelsea Motor Inn as a stopover for a trip from Sydney to Brisbane. The motel itself was clean, comfortable and conveniently located, however the staff were the real stars of the Inn. They were friendly, helpful and full of good advice which was greatly appreciated.

I stay at the Chelsea regularly for work. The motel is on a busy highway, but seriously if you close the window and use the air conditioner you hardly hear it. The staff are so friendly and the property is extremely clean and comfortable. Conveniently located in the centre of town, close to shops, clubs, pubs and restaurants. So well... More

It's 3 stars and doesn't pretend to be otherwise. A comfortable bed, hot shower with great pressure, airconditioned, very well located and staff are friendly - it's reasonably priced, particularly if rated against absurdly expensive rooms in other Coffs Harbour motels and resorts. Would stay here again. I think they know the bathrooms could do with a refurb :-).

Me and my wife stayed at Chelsea Motor Inn on a Saturday night in the month of Dec and had a great experience. The service was good and staff was friendly. Luckily there were no trucks on that night and we had a good night sleep. Highly recommended.

This motel is clean and the receptionist very friendly. The motel is on the main road and noise from the traffic is extremely loud, even though we had a room at the very back of the property. It is also in need of refurbishing. We think it is overpriced. On a positive note it is within easy walking distance of... More

Stayed here a few times because if the service and hospitality. It could do with a bit of renovating and updating but in saying that the price would go up also and we wouldn't stay. Central to everything and haven't heard the traffic noise. Breakfast was fabulous as well.

The Chelsea Motor Inn is a 3 star property, I received a very pleasant welcome, the room was clean, the bathroom/toilet was clean, a good shower, the queen size bed was comfortable, an ironing board and iron in the room and there were tea and coffee making facilities. So all in all, a pleasant place to stay, close to the... More

We stayed at this place as another family member was also staying the night. Great opportunity to catch up. The room was lovely. The Internet although free struggled to work for a few hours so in the end gave up. It wasn't working as it was advertised. Then as we tried to sleep the brakes from the semi trailers kept... More
