OK things did not get off to a great start as we were allocated the wrong room. We stayed in the "family room", no. 29, a room the same size as all the others but with 2 extra single beds in place of the old sofa. There was no where to sit, no desk, no where to even boil the... More

Stayed at this motel recently whilst working away. This motel was comfortable and clean. The motel is on the foreshore as the name suggests. Whilst the weather was quite cold overnight during my stay, the room stayed warm throughout the night even with the aircon switched off before going to sleep. Staff were all friendly. The restuarant attached to the... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to Port Lincoln. We googled where to stay and it said $95 a night. When we went yo book in it was $135. When we questioned the girl she just fobbed us off and kept checking us in. For that amount of money the rooms need work. The carpet has even... More

I stayed in adjoining rooms with my mum and two kids. They were unrenovated, but perfectly fine, though dated. The beds were comfy and the staff pleasant and helpful. The only downside to the unrenovated rooms was the older bathroom, but no big deal. Extremely good value for the price,esp since it included a continental breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay here. It has a pool and a restaurant on site. Our room was a little dated but was clean and well kept. We found this motel to be exceptional value for money and breakfast and wifi was included in the price. Our room had a lovely view out over the ocean. Staff were very friendly.

The Whyalla Foreshore Motor Inn is a basic motel and the room I stayed in was fairly dated. Apparently updating all rooms but the one I had wasn't. Try for a ground floor room as the wind made an upstairs room quite noisy. Restaurant definitely worth eating at.

Friends and I enjoyed our stay at the Motel. Room clean, comfy, friendly staff and well situated. Ideal for families, swimming pool and play ground close. Good view of the sea and excellent walks on the foreshore. The Restaurant served delicious and innovative meals. Breakfast included.

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was very good. We were fortunate enough to get one of the renovated rooms and the shower was particularly impressive. We found the owners/hosts to be welcoming, generous and they did go out of their way to accommodate our requests. For me, having such generosity of spirit makes it a... More

I am torn with this motel. Firstly, they are doing renovations, so this review is not accurate for all rooms (hopefully). Secondly, the only reason I am not giving a 1 or 2 star is because of dinner on the restaurant, which was excellent. It was very good servings, reasonably priced and very tasty. Now the bad bit. The room... More
