Out dated decor, grubby, no noise policy a joke as it was very noisy, smell of restaurant downstairs in the room all the time. Staff were unfriendly and weren't interested in you nor wanted to give any local info for things to see and do. Saving grace was secure parking, laundry facilities for free and location.

Byron Bay is full of noisy holiday makers and people having fun. We stayed while there were 2 major grand finals, on a long weekend, in the middle of school hols. and had an interrupted but not unbearable nights sleep. If you can accept it's a noisy town and realise that the cost of this hotel is in the budget... More

We were happy with most things regarding the room. Not very soundproof but with the 'no noise' policy after 10pm, it's ok. We felt we needed a table to sit at for dinner, although we could eat out on the balcony but it was too cold. Free wireless internet is very handy although it only worked in one corner of... More

This is a simple, clean motel with some good rules (no smoking or noise). The location is good, close to the centre of Byron Bay's cbd and a few blocks from the beach. For me, it was nice and close to my favorite dive centre - my reason for being in town. I have no complaints about this place at... More

We were impressed with the size of the unit, with the no smoking rule that carried a $50 fine if breached and the noise eradication after 10 pm policy: "Please no noise after 10 pm out of respect for other guests - phone 9 reception to report any noise". Highly recommended.

Many things appealed to us about this motel. The staff is friendly and we felt right at home after our long international flight. Central location - only a couple of minutes walk from everything whether it is main beach, shops, restaurants, movies or nightlight. The rooms are clean and it was easy to cook most of our meals after we... More

Byron Bay is a fantastic holiday destination. May to August The Deals are Great. Subtropical climate means that people swim and enjoy outdoor activities all year. We love watching the whales and the dolphins. We escape to Byron Bay for a relaxing annual holiday at Byron Bayside Motel centred right in the heart of Byron Bay. This motel is so... More

All accomodation is very expensive in Byron Bay over Easter but for $275 a night, I don't expect to be told to wash my own towels. Perhaps laundry detergent could have been provided to compensate for the motel closing it's reception and house keeping services over Easter. Some guests were young and noisy coming home from the Blues Fest drunk,... More

We stayed at Byron Bay Side Self Contained Budget Motel from 1-4 March 2011 and were absolutely thrilled with our choice. The studio style room was clean & spacious with comfortable beds and had a kitchen as well as lounge, TV and spacious balcony.
