We stayed in the enormous 2 bedroom apartment end of June. The apartment was well maintained and equipped with all the necessities to do your own cooking. The hotel is close to the beach and shops. Very helpful host. Definitely recommended for families.

Clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. I had room 7 at the rear which was also very quiet. Convenient car parking next to the rooms. Free WiFi which worked well. In room breakfast service.... More

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

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.

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.
