On first sight I was a little apprehensive as it looks like any other older style motel. However we found that the rooms and the facilities were up to date and clean and comfortable. Good location with a variety of eating places directly opposite, and a pleasant walk to the nearby jetty and breakwater. We had the room service breakfast... More

The Caribbean Motel at the Jetty was a great little find. The room was clean and comfortable with a view of the water and soft breeze blowing through to the room each afternoon. The manager and reception were very helpful arranging the accommodation and giving me some pointers on booking earlier for my next stay. The best part was the... More

Regarding booking tips, booking early is a good idea, as well as calling direct 1800 987 421 (rather than using sites such as Wotif), can give you the best rate and most suitable room :) we look forward to seeing you next time.Thank...

It may look a bit older on the outside, but the rooms are modern and very very clean, also a quiet location not far from the beach or pier. Plenty of eateries nearby. Staff very friendly and helpful, would stay again.

We were on the unfortunate situation of our car breaking down as we passed through Coffs Harbour but the wonderful team at the Caribbean motel went above and beyond to help us out with a room for the night and were brilliant with my children as well. Cannot thank them enough for their friendly service, it made a stressful night... More

A good place to stay. We had a one bedroom apartment with kitchen. Plenty of room for the two of us. Very clean and in a good position. Coffs Harbour Jetty. Hotel across the road and a strip of restuarants. Small shopping area in walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.

If you are looking for a well managed, spotlessly clean, reasonably priced accommodation with a broad range of restaurants, Coffs Marina and the Park Beach all within a very short walk, then we highly recommend staying at this great motel.
