Room was very spacious if a little dated. Location was great and receptionist very helpful. Parking right out front of the room so good if you have lots of luggage! Great place to stay the night if your enroute between Sydney and Melbourne as we were.

The Coastal Waters Motor Inn is very nicely presented from the outside with the interior also kept to a high standard. My colleague and I booked two rooms for one night while on a business trip. Our room layout was identical. We were impressed with the size and assume they used to have more than the current one bed configuration... More

Hi Thank you for all your positive and comprehensive comments. They are really appreciated. After reading your comment regarding an extra blanket I had all rooms checked, as we do provide an extra one in each room, in the drawer under the case rack, and each room had one Many thanks again Heather and Ron BEST WESTERN Coastal Waters More

We stayed for one night over Easter on our road trip back from Sydney. We had a clean, very spacious room which was well-appointed. It was located within walking distance to shops, cafes and beach. The staff were friendly too and it was lovely to receive a knock on the door shortly after we arrived to check that everything was... More

We only stayed here for one night on our road trip from Melbourne to Sydney and found this gem through reviews we read on Trip Advisor. It is slightly out of town which makes for a peaceful quiet nights sleep. The Inn is small ( not a lot of rooms) but the rooms are extremely spacious, clean and well appointed.... More

On our way to Tasmania, my wife and I had the pleasure of staying a night at the Coastal Waters Motor Inn. On arrival, it appeared that our booking was not in place, but with the excellent assistance of Amy, the problem was rapidly investigated and sorted out. The booking mistake was no fault of the Motor Inn, but we... More

Good sized rooms; lovely landscaping -- gardens and pool; exceptionally pleasant manager (owner); near to beach; is great for families traveling with children. Would stay here again if ever returned to Australia or Lakes Entrance.

We love motels that offer a couple of options to rest weary bones after a day's travel. A small dining table and chairs as well as a comfortable couch are great. Room 8 had all of this plus a large ensuite. Definitely on the return list.

I just stayed here for the one night, but I found it a very comfortable stay. The room was large and very clean. The towels were nice and thick! Even though it was on the main road, it wasn't noisy at all. I slept in without realising how late it was! The grounds were very well kept with a nice... More

My husband and I stayed here in a King Spa Room (12) overnight on our way home after an 8 night camping trip. What a lovely place to wash off the dust! Room was huge, bed was a real king and not two singles pushed together (as some places have when you stay in a King room!), and the spa... More

Huge clean Room. Not very modern furnished but ok. Bathroom seemed quite new. Free Wifi and free parking. Fridge in the room. Nice little pool surrounded by tropical plants. Nice barbecue station in a pavillion. Parrots in the trees. Good supermarket and bottle shop in town.
