I stayed here for 1 night as I was due to go into surgery for a broken ankle. I cannot begin to say how hospitable and friendly the staff/managers were. As I am on crutches, they made sure that I was comfortable, offered me a later check out due to my appointment not being until lunch time and even offered... More

I stayed here during the Easter NSW/QLD school holidays when most beachside accommodation is priced through the roof. If you want fancy, then look elsewhere, but if you want practical, clean, comfortable accommodation in walking distance to shops, beaches, bars, etc, then The River Esplanade Motel is a winner. Parking is off-street which is good, it's a 3-5 min walk... More

Basic motel but clean, well priced and in a reasonable location within easy walking distance to surf club, beach and restaurants. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Manager was friendly. Would definitely return.

The people who run this motel have obviously put a lot of work into making it a comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay. We stayed in a chalet-style room where we could park our car right outside. The room was simply furnished, including a tv, aircon and coffee-making facilities. The bathroom was modern and very clean. The motel itself... More

Only staying one night and didn't book ahead as we were a bit worried by one of the previous reviews about cleanliness. We needn't had worried, but just in case asked if we could see the room before committing (stayed in room number 4) very clean throughout, freshly painted, linen very clean and even shower head spotless. Really can't fault... More

The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable, everything we needed, including air conditioning and wifi. The pool looked very inviting, the kids spent a couple of hours in there.... More

This Motel was basic but well priced. Only soap supplied in bathroom but I didn't expect much more than this from a basic Motel. Bedding and towels were clean. Excellent location with the Esplanade and Underwater World 3 - 5 minutes walk down the road. There is access to buses nearby that would take you to the train station and... More
