I don't really care for motels but this one is quite nice. Our room (#3) seemed to be newly redone and was clean. The bed was fairly comfortable and the pillows adequate. The free internet worked quite well. There is assigned parking for guests which means your vehicle is right outside your door. The motel is across the street from... More

We stayed here for two nights and was pleasantly surprised by how quiet, clean large the place was. It had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beach is across the road, the local supermarket is less than 5 minutes walk. The room and facilities were clean, spacious and much larger than what the photos provide.... More

Stopped here purely on spec while driving the Great Ocean Road, while passing. It is a lovely motel with good big comfy rooms at a reasonable rate. The chap on reception was friendly chatty and informative about the area. It is close to the town and a short walk to restaurants etc. Stayed just the one night but it was... More

We stayed one night at the Coastal Motel on our recent trip around the Great Ocean Road. It is an old style motel but the rooms have been nicely renovated very recently. We found it very clean and comfortable. It is in a great location - an easy walk to to the local restaurants and the Tourist Information Office is... More

This motel had recently been refurbished. It was clean, the bed was comfortable. Apollo Bay is a small town, there was a nice selection of restaurants to choose from for an evening meal. Ideal location for a nights stay while travelling along the Ocean Road.

My wife and I booked this place for a romantic getaway for 4 nights to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary. We arrived late the night before my birthday, and the first thing I noticed was that we had been given the wrong room. We were supposed to have a deluxe queen room with a gas log fire but instead...

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
