Sadly only spent one night here, but would not hesitate to book again for longer. Good position in town, easy walk to restaurants etc. Spotlessly clean and modern. Comfortable bed and good bathroom facilities. Very friendly staff, parking right outside the door, no complaints whatsoever.

Surprising for a motel! Despite the vintage exterior look, the rooms are big, clean and modern. Parking beside the door. The location is great : 1 minute walk from everything in town and the beach. I highly recommend!

Stayed in this place for a couple of nights and we were more than pleased. As other reviewers have said, the hotel does not look that great from the outside but the room that we were in was actually quite modern and had everything we needed. Location is perfect - close to restaurants, shopping and the beach. Have a meal... More

Dropped in one night when traveling for work needing an inexpensive place to get a good nights sleep. Reception was friendly and jokingly said the last room they had "came with a view" , ie the main street. The room and bed was comfortable and had plenty of room and it was a short walk to Byron Bay centre. Not... More

I stayed 3 nights, the managers were what made the experience fantastic. Old school friendly and willing to go out of their way to make your stay happy and relaxed. No breakfast available but there is a small kitchen and shops close by for supplies .

I stayed with friends at Hibiscus Motel. We arrived late this day and we were quite tired but the warm welcome and friendly faces of the owners made our day. The rooms were neatly clean and quite spacious. A well equipped kitchen, TV set and a comfy sofa (and of course a comfy bed) made our stay most likeable. The... More

Excellent location on Lawson Street, we didn't have to drive at all during our stay. Bay Lane is just behind the motel, all the restaurants of Bay Lane were only minutes away. Main Beach is one street away. The newly renovated rooms are spacious and modern and kitchenette is well equipped. Wifi worked well. Lovely hosts made us feel really... More
