To be honest from the outside the Coastal Motel doesnt look all that special! However, the rooms have been refurbished and are modern, spacious and comfortable. This with the location makes this a four star very good for me. Downsides - there was no breakfast being served when we stayed - not sure if this is normal.

The location of this motel is awesome; it is near to the coast and the food outlets in the small town. Reception is warm and friendly. Wifi also works fine. Room is great and amenities are sufficient for a short stay. In overall, a very satisfying experience!

Lots of hotels / motels in area but this was both the cheapest and most modern. Big room, fully fitted out so you stay a day or a week without trouble. All rooms renovated with quality furniture and fittings and only a short walk to the main shopping centre. Staff were extremly friendly and helpful and beach just accross the... More

The double storey unit is great for a family with up to 3 young children. My 2 boys loved this place! But it is a little inconvenient & no privacy if you have a third adult, like my trip with my mum. It's my fault since I'm aware of the configuration of the unit when I booked. Overall it is... More

Great place to stay when in Apollo Bay. The supermarket is just around the corner - the motel is close to the shops, cafes and restaurants. Very quiet and clean. Kitchen is equipped with all what is needed.

The place was recently refurbished and the room was large with a small kitchen. It would be lovely if there is a store as well but our stay was just for a night so it was fine. It also have a BBQ area plus laundry facilities on site. Once you step of the Motel premise, the beach is just across... More

free wifi, good bathroom and a comfortable bed. That's all I needed for a good nights' sleep and that's what we got. Close to good eating and drinking and on the road in to town. I'd definitely stay again, even if for longer than the night we were there. Very fresh and clean.

Stayed here for one night. Great location, walked to cafes etc. Spotlessly clean. Small kitchen area, loft bedroom with bunks for kids. Parking at the door. Electric blanket were a bonus! Room had recently been redecorated. Ideal spot for a short stay.
