Great position, it has been refurbished, and is nicely appointed, comfy beds, and the Jetty Restaurant strip is across the road. the parking spots are tight, not much room to manoeuvre. We have stayed here many times, from the quick over night stay to a few days. Great position from which to see everything Coffs has to offer and to... More

I stay here regularly for business and the best thing about this motel is it is not on the Pacific Highway which is incredibly noisy. There is a bit of nightlife around here with a good pub and several eating establishments of varying standard across the road so weekends can be a little noisy but not anywhere near the highway...

Thank you for making our motel your regular choice of accommodation in Coffs Harbour. Our location away from the highway and near the restaurant strip does make us a popular choice with many regulars. I'm glad you were happy with our wi-fi, we have put in extra equipment this year and now also have NBN. Most mobile phones work well... More

The hotel is near the pier hotel and the twisted sisters cafe which are both nice. The hotel has a pool and free wifi. The wifi speeds are very good exceeding 20 megabits a second. Unfortunately the water is noisy and goes through the walls of the lower apartments. It was very noisy and it wasnt a very good sleep

I usually travel to Coffs Harbour every couple of months and this time I thought I would stay somewhere different and decided on the Caribbean Motel. It is very well positioned within walking distance to the jetty and also Muttonbird Island. There are heaps of restaurants just across and down the road so no shortage of different types of food...

Stayed at this Motel en route from Noosa to Sydney and intend to stay here on future trips to and from the Sunshine Coast. Our room was nicely appointed with beds that were beautifully presented and comfortable. Room spotlessly clean with a large bathroom.

I was in Coffs for a combination of work and a road trip with my 83 yo mother so I wanted a good quality, well-located apartment motel she could hang out in while I was out for the day. Caribbean Motel met that requirement in full and was a clean, efficient, no fuss, well-appointed place. The location is perfect if... More

An honest unpretentious overnight motel. Well located. Good comfortable bed. Close to restaurants and the harbour with off street parking. We would stay here again and recommend it to other travellers.

Recently stayed at the Caribbean for work. The staff are approachable and the check in and out process seamless. Like many hotels of it's vintage, you will need to navigate your luggage up and down stairs to get to your room. For people with mobility issues, this would need to be considered. There is parking available onsite, however the ones... More

It is a pretty basic motel which is a bit on the expensive side price wise. We were given a 2 bedroom as the place was pretty full when we checked in late afternoon without prior arrangement made. It's clean, quiet & comfortable & right opposite a large variety of restaurants serving every type of cuisine. They all seemed popular... More
