Had two night stay in February. Accommodation was really modern, stylish and clean. Fantastic choice of restaurants, bars and shops just a few minutes away. Visited Nimbin which is a quaint little town and were told it has relatively tolerant attitude to soft drugs. Only thing that let us down was the weather. Would highly recommend Bay Motel.

Very impressed with the renovations to the rooms, clean and modern, spacious living area with lounge and kitchenette, good bathroom. Great location straight across the road from the beach and surf club and just along from the hotel and entertainment. Stayed 2 nights. The managers were extremely nice. Only thing missing was a view from the room. Would certainly recommend... More

My husband and I stayed at this motel for one night. We were in Room 1 and found that it was a good size and clean. We had a king and a single bed. The king bed was quite comfy as were the pillows. The parking area is quite small - there is to be one parking spot for each... More

Extremely rude management/reception. A friend & I stayed for 8 nights and the room wasn't cleaned once, only towels changed. Cockroaches running around & dead cockroaches & bugs under the bed. No sink in the kitchenette, however $50 charge is dishes left unwashed. Dirty dishes in the drawers. Bed was damp. The only positive is the location, however don't expect... More

Fantastic Location right on the main beach with the best bar in Byron just a couple of minutes down the road, the room was perfect and very clean. Parking also free which was a huge bonus, free WiFi also included in the stay, would stay again!

First impression on line was a 1980's era Motel, with about a dozen rooms but noting its location bang smack in the centre of everything in central Byron Bay and right opposite the beach we gave it a go, seeing photos showing a modern refurbishment. We were thrilled in every way!!! Location at the front is across the road from... More

Perfect stay if you're intending to be out and about for majority of your holiday! Very simple room but had everything you need.. Excluding a sink. No oven or stove, so lots of eating out but you're only a very short walk away from all the delicoious restraunts! The service was wonderful and would definitely stay again.

We recent stayed at the bay motel for 1 night with two adults and a baby, (although I wish it had been longer) and I couldn't fault it! Fantastic friendly staff, clean rooms, very affordable for being right on the beach, and the location is amazing! You couldn't get any more central if you tried. There are two types of... More

Yes, it may not look like much from the street frontage, but its actually a really nice, clean hotel with amazing refurbished rooms. The managers are very friendly and helpful. Secure off street car parking on site and right across the road from the beach. For Byron Bay, the room rate is very competitive. I'd recommend the hotel any time... More

I stayed at the Bay Motel over Australia Day and it was great! It's directly across from the main beach and only a few doors down from the Beach hotel, which is close enough to all the shops to be able to pop back to your room if you need anything, yet far enough away that the noise doesn't penetrate...
