I stayed 6 nights after driving from QLD. It is clean, comfortable and quiet. It's straight across the road from the beach - I could even here the waves at night as I lay in bed!

We stayed overnight at this little motel and found it to be very well run. It was clean and very convenient. The lady at reception was charming and very helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting an overnight stay. A hair dryer would be nice to include in the facilities.

There were no bells and whistles with the room, however it was very clean,... More

We stayed for one night and after driving from qld it was great to get there and have a nice, clean, comfortable room, staff was very happy and helpful. Liked that it had a kitchen area not that we stayed long enough to use it but very handy to know for next time Would stay here again.

The Surf Beach Motor Inn was clean, but the tap in our bathroom basin only worked when you turned it to hot (the whole thing moved in your hand). We only stayed overnight, but depending on the price negotiated could stay a bit longer next time. Our room was not self contained, only tea and coffee making facilities. The place... More

Not having booked in advance I took a drive along Ocean Parade looking for a place to stay for the night. At the first motel I tried I couldn’t attract the attention of anyone to come to reception...

Clean and friendly. Close to Beach, no view from room. BP Garage less than 100 yards away reckoned for good cheap meals and friendly . Close to BBQs , short drive from shops . Walk to Bowls Club. Would visit again.
