Great location, nicely renovated rooms. This hotel looks very tired on the outside and in the reception (makes you a little scared about what you are about to walk into) but the inside of the rooms are fully refurbished and comfortable. There was noise from the pub next door and the beach across the road but that all stopped by... More

We spent 2 nights here in April and were very satisfied with the room. It was clean and modern with a very comfortable bed and a good shower. The free wifi worked to start with but did drop off periodically, but it was free after all, so no real issue. I missed having no sink in the kitchen area as... More

Clean, tidy and spacious. Nice owners, but cleaners cannot read the do not disturb sign :-( We had really been wanting to sleep in after a late night out, but that didn't happen when there was loud knocking at our door at 8 a.m.. Also loud people over the fence arguing often. All that aside, the Motel is situated in... More

My friend and I got a great package deal through Webjet, flights and accommodation for 5 nights. The location is perfect; walk out the front and you're on the main beach, walk out the back gate and you have a short cut to the restaurants, shops and bars. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the room was clean and... More

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
