Location -- amidst shops and opposite waterfront and parks; obliging staff (we arrived late, so there was a note and directions for us on the office window, etc... Simple, clean facilities. Quiet rear units, good parking. We stopped two nights.

We turned up late on a busy long weekend and couldn't get a room at the usual place we stay in L.E. and so ended up at The Esplanade. They were almost full but very kindly shuffled a few rooms around so that we (three blokes) could share a room. The room was around the back and very quiet and... More

We were just so pleased with our family room - the two toilets/ showers made life very easy with the two kids. They were in ecstasy over a TV for them too. Given the price and our very short stay we did not expect the room the be serviced each day, but it was, and plenty of fresh towels were... More

The man on reception was lovely, we stayed in Winter and he made sure the heating was on so the room was nice and warm when we arrived. The room was spotless with a great shower and comfortable bed. The hotel is right in the heart of Lake's Entrance and we would definitely stay again!

My husband and I stayed at The Esplanade Motel a few weeks ago. The motel is fairly old but in the middle of town, very clean and well appointed. Our room had a kettle, toaster and microwave with basic cutlery and crockery. There is also a shared kitchen with a stove and barbecue nearby. The prices are very reasonable when... More

We were passing through the town and planned to spend one night. We did. The room we had didn't have a kitchen sink. Seemed like there was one in the past, but was removed? The décor is dated. The bathrooms are clean and so were the beds. They have WiFi which is unreliable. It's good enough for a good nights... More

Had two nights at the motel. Large comfortable room and bathroom - a bit dated but on a par with others in the area - great meal at Seafood restaurant across road and takeout from Nicks next door - apart from miserable weather had an enjoyable stay. Friendly hosts.

Stayed in a back room. Ok, its not the most modern, and the room is pretty basic. You can hear people next door and the water pipes. Yeah, a bit of fresh paint would help. No big deal. The air con. worked great, the shower was great. Bed was fine. Walking distance to pretty much everything. For $70 bucks for... More

We chose this Motel for no particular reason at all from a variety of Motels along the Esplanade strip. We were very pleasantly surprised at the cost for a Queen room - $75.00 and with make your own breakfast in the restaurant at $2.50 per person (or fully cooked at $10.00 per person) what an absolute find. The breakfast room... More
