We arrived this motel on Christmas holiday and we found this place is awful. Insects everywhere and the bedrooms looks very dirty. We were travel from SYD to Mel and this motel is the worst place ever. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

If you want to go to Lakes Entrance, it's better to get something in the town centre. We couldn't find anything so we settled for this. There's complimentary breakfast which we didn't try. Pool looked yucky with mould/moss growing in it. Rooms were ok. Just not a good location.

Very expensive hotel. This Motel provides very basic amenities. Breakfast is very poor. There will be long Q for getting your turn to toast your bread as no other food options are available. There are good eating places nearby. Hence don't waste your time to take complementary breakfast

We arrived at this motel to find the entrance hard to find and when we did find it we had to drive right up and around to find reception. This motel is straight out of the 1960's, very old fashioned and in a great need of full rejuvenation and a complete overall to bring it into the 21st century. Our... More

The room was comfortable and quiet. Decent facilities, and all the room equipment worked. There is wifi but could not connect the entire stay even though we mentioned this, the receptionist did come out and try and address this immediately but to no avail. Breakfast was very basic just cereal or toast but was included in the price. The swimming... More

This is the worst motel I have ever stayed in both here and overseas. The staff were NOT polite, even accused us of being racists. When we got to the room it was filthy, smelt and was not pleasant. Understandably we did not stay. The smell was too much. There are other nicer motels in Lakes Entrance which are cheaper... More

Rooms were clean but smelled very strong of bleach and washing powder. Not good for those with allergies! Staff were friendly and accommodating. Nice location looking over water. Paid too much for this type of accommodation.

We spent 1 night here on our way home to Sydney. $245/night for the worst motel room ever. Where do I begin? The whole establishment has seen much better days. It appears there hasn't been maintenance on the place for years. Weeds growing all over the place including around the pool. The place looks derelict really. If it wasn't for... More
