Had to stay on a budget for one night. There was a mouse sitting on top of the lounge like it owned the place, have seen nothing worse at a motel. An offensive smell from inside. Only one towel which isn't helpful. Give this place a miss and move on to a different motel in town, how can people run... More

Absolutely disgusting. Lobby stank of stron cigarettes despite "no smoking signs". Creepy guy at reception. Door to room had no lock as window to shower was insecure. Inch thick mould in shower! Absolutely unsafe to stay in. Disgusting. We stayed not even 5 minutes and had to leave it stank so bad and we got our refund and sped out... More

Cheap and amusing if it was not my money. Faulty power socket that took the power off. Fridge had defrosted spilling 10 litres of water on the floor, cleaning it up gave the floor a much needed clean. Holes patched on the workbench with vinyl tiles that were full of ants. A most depressing experience that I will never repeat.... More

The rats have given up gnawing the yellow pages because the trucks passing the window cause too much vibration. Avoid this place like the plague you will probably catch. I have never stayed anywhere worse in all Australia.

We did exactly the same, discovered it on our way home to Gold Coast from Sydney holiday. Quite tired , first motel we really noticed on way in to Coffs displaying what thought was a great price $75 for night. Well here starts unfortunately the horror. Everything people have said so far rather than go through it again are correct.... More

First motel as you enter Coffs Harbour. The price was right at $75, queen room. Needed a rest. We sure got what we paid for! Opened the door to an overpowering smell of mould! No cutlery, no extra pillows, and a tiny room that has sure seen better days. Never mind, it's not so bad when you get used to... More

In my 30 years in tourism I have never seen anything as bad as this!!! Like a lot of other people tired from a long day travelling, took the first motel as we entered from the south side. Had a Quick look from the door, seemed ok, went to have dinner. It was only when we returned and started to... More

I have never in my life seen a motel so dirty. It was an absolute disgrace- the entire bathroom ceiling and shower curtain were covered in mould. Mouse poo in between the sheets. We were informed 'room recently serviced' as we booked in which was a blatant lie. The bathroom window had no lock what so ever. Chunks of paint... More
