The motel is set in its own garden away from roads with just the sound of birds to wake you in the morning. The room was large, clean and well-equipped. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. Although the motel is not in the centre of Tin Can Bay, we were able to... More

we could not have been made more welcome by Desleigh...this motel is clean and tidy, and, best of all, is dog-friendly, so we were able to have our little Westies in the same room at night...we have stayed here about six times, and have always enjoyed out times there....gotta warn you: Desleigh's son Hadyn has a six month old Border...

Found by chance, but a great find. Clean, spacious, self contained and pet friendly. Friendly and helpful owners. Would recommend this motel to anyone, and is gentle on the pocket! The gardens are lovely and the motel is close to waterfront nature walks.

As a previous reviewer said, "friendly, good value, very clean." The rooms are spacious and basic, but with everything you need. The location is quiet and peaceful. We appreciated the free wifi and the very helpful staff at reception. I highly recommend the Tin Can Bay Motel and would stay there again.

A great place to stay, easy living and restfull. The unit was well set out with everything we needed. Management were freindly and helpfull, we had a trailer with us which was no problem. For breakfast we went to Temptaions just near the Crab Creek boat ramp, this is a must do, good selection and just fantastic.

We needed a pet friendly motel on short notice for a quick working weekend. Tin Can Bay Motel was more then accommodating. Lovely neat, tidy & clean room. Ample space for the dog. Central to everything & a short walk to the shore front - what more could you want. Highly recommend + Rollo the managers Border Collie is super... More

You get a friendly welcome, nice clean and tidy little unit. Pretty basic, but comfortable – you get what you pay for – good value for money. Free wifi a bonus and always useful. Bit short on cooking facilities but apparently you just need to ask for electric frypan so quite adequate.

Tin Can Bay Motel is a fantastic place to stay. The owners/management are very helpful and friendly, the rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds are very comfortable. It is a short stroll to the beach area & it is close to everything. It has a lovely pool, and is so relaxing and peaceful there. It's a 3 min drive to... More

We have stayed here a couple of times and for the price it is fantastic. The owners are great and the room is always very clean. It is a very quiet motel and central to everything. We would recommend to anyone we know coming to stay.

The Tin Can Bay Motel is a bit hidden away in a non-sea view street, but that doesn't matter one jot when the experience is so good. Management very friendly and helpful, spotlessly clean room and inviting crisp white linen. Lovely bed, pillows and douvet (not those horrible motel blankets). Good, well equipped kitchenette, large shower, nice outlook over bush.... More
