4.5 stars usually means comfort and a bit of luxury but we didn't get it here. Lakes Entrance is a great destination and we have been going there for years. We thought we'd upgrade our stay and indulge in 4.5 stars but this was a disappointment. When you stay for three nights you need a good nights sleep but the... More

Great location, on the Main Street near all the cafes and shops, clean rooms that had been renovated recently, staff very friendly and a great price. Only down side was showers didn't hold any one temperature, and then suddenly would go very cold/hot. Overall I recommend this to everyone just think I might have picked the one time 20 people...

this motel was $75 a night for a basic but clean room right on the esplanade. It had five hours of wifi for free and was very close to shopping, supermarket and eating places. The room was not large and a bit tired looking but given the price it was good value for money. The bed was comfortable and there... More

$70 for a straightforward room, with wifi, and friendly service, on the Esplanade, in the middle of town. What's not to like! Easier than pitching the tent, and with a shower. Neat, clean, cheap and convenient. Go for a walk over to the beach. Lovely

We got an excellent deal for a two bedroom apartment with exceptional view and facilities. Recommend you ring direct to book. Carpets looking a little tired but apartment was well cleaned. Kids loved heated pool but outdoor pool was absolutely freezing - needs a touch of solar heating. Highly recommend.

Motel has many rooms, and is actually bigger than it looks. Most rooms are out the back, so very quiet with no road noise. An older motel, but clean and modernised. close to town, so can walk everywhere. Breakfast is served daily in dining room: @2.50 for continental or $10 for cooked breakfast! Great value. Motorbike friendly! verandah to sit... More

It was $125 for a mid sized room in an older hotel at peak season, 5/1/15. It was definitely more than we would normally pay for a room of this quality but i can completely understand that these business's in seasonal locations need to make more money to cover the quieter times of winter. We only booked on the day... More

Last minute booking for New Years eve, one night only. Small room, no hairdryer, no breakfast, we had way better rooms for half the price during our week long road trip through Victoria. Much better value can be found.
