3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here 25th January for the money thought it was a rip off. Hotel was clean, Bed was very small. I personally found the motel drab and couldn't wait to leave but that is my personal opinion. The windows had no view at all and I felt claustrophobic but it was just for one night.

The Caribbean is well located in Coffs. It provides a pleasant atmosphere with reasonable rooms for a family of 4. The pool on offer is fairly small but the kids still loved the opportunity to jump in and cool down on some hots days. A separate main bedroom with double bed and TV as well as another room with 2...

First stop on our road trip from Sydney to Airlie beach. The "family room" was clean and space was sufficient for quick stop over. We forgot some of our belongings and received a prompt call from the receptionist, who was kind enough to offer to post it to us or hold it until we returned from our trip. Would go... More

We stayed for 2 nights during the Christmas Holidays in a 2 bedroom family unit. Prices were fairly inflated due to the time of year. Room was nice, if not a little dated. Air conditioner in the room worked ok once we realised that we had to use the bedroom remote for both units as the remote in the kids... More

Thank you for staying with us. The rooms with the best views are on the top floor which means a few stairs, but we are always happy to help with luggage. The air-con remote which didn't work probably needs a new battery so thank you for bringing that to our attention. More

We stayed there last night for our wedding anniversary, it's easy to find, the rooms have been refurbished fairly recently by the look of them and are lovely, our room was fairly large the bed was comfortable and it had it's own private balcony which had views over 'the jetty' area and out to sea, it's in a lovely quite...

1 night stay for work. Service was kind, friendly and casual. The place had a very relaxed atmosphere and a small country town feel. Rooms were a little dated (but most places in Coffs appear to be) but my room was in really good condition. Room air-conditioning worked well, which was good as I was on the top floor, although...

We appreciate your posting a review. We're glad you were happy with our cleanliness, service and value. Regarding the air-cons being temperature locked, this allows them to cool effectively. We look forward to seeing you next time when you'll find most midweek guests are here for work like yourself. Thanks for staying with us. More

Stayed here on a stop over to QLD. Room was clean and super comfortable for a family of four. Outside looks dated but the rooms are modern and well furnished. Great location with easy access to restaurants. Will certainly visit again

This place is situated right in the jetty precinct of Coffs Harbour amongst some excellent restaurants and within walking distance of the jetty foreshore. We had an issue with our booking on arrival but the on site managers quickly rectified this and provided us with an excellent room to suit our needs. The service you get is second to none... More

We stopped in hoping for a room at the last minute (high season it was a miracle it was) and not only did we get lucky, we were in what we think was one of the best rooms and it was a bargain price with a lovely balcony. Don't expect much of the pool, it's a tiny plunge pool but... More
